Let’s be honest. Wintertime can be tough. It’s cold, windy, snowy, and wet. These aren’t exactly my favorite conditions. I don’t think it’s baby’s favorite either. And this is definitely not an ideal time to be outside carrying or strolling a baby around. (Remember, they aren’t yet able to regulate their temperature very well.) But these low temperatures and less-than-ideal weather conditions can’t keep us homebound every day. We have things to do! Luckily some products can help keep your baby comfortable, healthy, and warm through this crazy season. Here are our favorite top winter products for babies.
Baby Face Organic Nose & Cheek Balm
This little tube of goodness is amazing to have during the wintertime and year-round.
Wintertime is when our babies have dry cheeks, runny noses, and if they’re teething, drooly chins! All of this can cause their sweet little faces to be dry or chapped. That’s where this balm can help. It was formulated to be comforting, soothing, and moisturizing for our babies’ skin. And it’s the perfect organic alternative to petroleum jelly. It’s certified organic with ultra-rich calendula coconut balm. You can even use it as a chapstick! You don’t have to worry about getting it around your baby’s mouth because there are no parabens, petroleum, artificial fragrance, or preservatives.
NoseFrida & Saline Spray
What would we do without our NoseFrida with the saline spray? During this winter season, we have been using this bad boy EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. My son’s nose has been stuffed and runny all at the same time. His baby snorts may sound cute to me, but I know that his inability to breathe clearly makes him miserable. With two saline sprays in each nostril and the NoseFrida, I can quickly and easily relieve him.Buy Here
Wintertime can be tough on our baby’s skin. A humidifier is great to have with dry winter air. We love our son’s humidifier because it helps reduce chapped skin, stuffy noses, and dry mouth. I recommend not keeping it right next to your baby’s crib as well as out of arms reach from your little one.Buy Here
Socks, Hats & Mittens
Of course, we have to keep our babies warm from the chilly weather. A knit hat, mittens, and warm socks are winter products for baby must-haves. Babies don’t have to wear all of these items indoors since we don’t want them overheating, so use your best judgment. I also recommend some baby booties that will help keep the heat from escaping and keep his little piggies nice and warm. 🙂
A sweater is a perfect piece to have in any winter wardrobe. It’s ideal for layering so you can keep your little one bundled up. I recommend a soft knit sweater with an easy zipper, buttons, or snaps to easily take off your child. We all know that when they want it off, you can’t take forever, or there will be a fit!Buy Here
It’s no secret that cold weather can bring on sick days. The last thing we want is our babies to get sick. Carry some hand sanitizer with you to kill those nasty cold and flu germs. If someone wants to hold your baby, give them a few sprays of hand sanitizer. It’s better to be safe and healthy than sorry and sick.Buy Here
Dry skin is inevitable during the winter months. We want to protect our babies’ skin so picking a safe lotion is important. Here’s a great option from Earth Mama specially designed to moisturize and protect a baby’s sensitive skin from dryness. The moisturizer gently soothes and softens, leaving skin nourished, protected, and smooth.Buy Here
Footed Sleepers & Sleep Sacks
Our babies can get cold during the night time, and since having loose blankets is unsafe, a footed sleeper or sleep sack is a better and safer option. This will keep your little one warm and comfortable with those dropping temperatures.
If you’re getting your child ready to sit in his car seat, your child should not be wearing heavy coats or wrapped up in a blanket while getting buckled in. All that should be between your baby and the car seat straps are his pants and shirt. Blankets and covers should be OVER his buckles and around his car seat. The 7 AM Enfant Nido, JJ Cole car seat covers, Cozy Covers, and Buckle Me car seat friendly coats are some great and safe options.
If you plan on taking your baby out in the stroller in the chilly weather, a bunting bag is a good idea. It’s basically like a baby snowsuit. Some options that I recommend are from North Face and Columbia. They have great waterproof choices for babies.
