However, if a baby under 6 months, then she may need more protection, because the ratio of their body surface area than a larger weight and can not shiver to create heat.
During cold weather is much more effective to wear several layers of clothing, which will hamper the less of two heavy and thick clothing. Additionally, will the baby be much warmer if one of these layers of wool. Are practical and warm winter odjelca stuffed with feathers or feather imitation. Baby certainly put a cap, even if it's chilly out there just because the cap will greatly help him retain body heat (even 25% of body heat is lost through the head). When the outside temperature below zero, the cap should cover your baby's ears.
Hands should be protected by gloves, foot socks and boots, a neck scarf. If a strong wind blowing out or extremely cold, you can wrap a scarf around the face or a face mask to protect the canvas, but making sure it does not cover the baby's nose and so make it hard to breathe.

In doing so najpraktičnijei lighter layers of clothing which can be easily navlačiti undress and when the weather starts unexpectedly changed from hot to cold or vice versa. It is also good with you always have a witch or a blanket if the temperature suddenly drops.

Peace of mind
During the cold days the temperature in the nursery is best kept between 20 and 22 ˚ C, and the cold nights between 15 and 18 ˚ C (if it is difficult to estimate the temperature in the room, install a thermometer in the room near the place where that baby up staying in the room , for example. above the bed, making sure to be outside its scope). If indoor temperature is higher than these values, then overheated and dry air can damage the lining of the nose and make it susceptible to microbes that cause colds. Also, overheated air will dry out and the baby's skin and cause itching.
Before you put your baby to sleep, baby cot can get hot water bottle or heating coil (make sure the sheet is not too hot).

No, definitely try to avoid the common mistake of dressing too warm for the baby bed. If your child wakes during the night in a sweat, remove one or two layers of blankets.
If the baby is properly dressed?
Touching your baby's arm, thigh or back of the neck is easy to determine whether he is comfortable. If these parts of the body cold and / or the child is restless, probably he's cold, so he can wear a blanket or cover. If the skin is hot and sweaty, or wet kosica, or the baby is breathing rapidly or is restless - probably dressed too warm, then remove a few layers of clothing. If rukice and feet cold to the touch and the body is comfortably warm and dry, but the baby continues to cry, it may be fed or thirsty or tired.
Although you will hear many times worried comments like "your baby to keep warm, her arms full of cold!", Do not immediately jump to another blanket or jacket. The warmth of the baby can not be identified only by her arms or legs, because they are mostly colder than the rest of the body, as the baby is still not a fully developed circulatory system. Similarly, if the baby sneezed a few times, it does not mean that it is cold. Maybe she resents the sun or felt the need to purify the nose. The same goes for the hiccups, which is very common in babies and in most cases has nothing to do with feeling cold.
Exceptions that prove the rule
Just as there are persons who are cold and in summer, there are those in which the hot-cold winter days. If you are one of those people, then you own a reliable thermostat will not be heading for the dressing of the child. In this case, for help in dressing babies contact someone whose sense of comfort appropriate (spouse, mother or any other available person of trust). Also, if you suspect that your child is warmer or cooler than you, accept it and dress it in accordance with this fact.
