If you’re worried it’s too cold outside for your baby, unless the temperature is below -5°C, it’s OK to venture out.
Here are some easy ways to help you both enjoy a fun walk without freezing:
- Your baby needs one more layer of clothing than you do, plus they’ll be sitting still and so will get cold long before you do.
- Always put a hat on your baby before going outside in winter.
- Once you’re back inside, take off the extra outdoor clothing immediately. Staying in warm clothes even for a few minutes might make your baby clammy, and then they’ll be even colder when back outside.
