Optimum Layers For Your Baby

Good quality woolen clothes and winter accessories such as caps, mittens, and socks are essential to keep them comfortable and warm. The right kind of layers is good and you can start with a warm bodysuit or onesie, use soft woolen clothes – a turtle neck sweatshirt, half sweater, and top layer of fleece one-piece with feet, will be the best. If you're opting for pants and a top, socks are a must under booties.

An extra layer is always good and you can analyze this with your dressing sense. Dress your baby as you do, then add an extra layer. A monkey cap is always the best idea to cover their head and entire face.
