How to Keep Baby Warm in Winter on Stroller Walks? Tips featured by Maryland State Doulas

Here are our tips to feel confident in the comfort and health of your baby:

How to Keep Baby Warm in the Winter:

1) Start with the base

It’s always best to start with a cotton footed onesie base, and footed onesies are great because they help ensure that baby won’t kick off their socks during the ride. We love these organic options for their two-way zippers and soft, breathable fabrics.

2) Add layers 

Add one layer per 5-10 degree temperature drop. We’d suggest either a simple quilted jacket with snaps, like this favorite from Burt’s Bees. Added bonus - it’s reversible, in case of messes between washes. 

3) Use a wearable blanket or stroller cover 

For extra chilly days, blankets add insulation from the wind and chill. To avoid a baby pulling a blanket up over their face, grab a stroller blanket that attaches to the base of your car seat or stroller, or one that your baby can wear, such as this option.

4) Babies are sturdy 

Remember, above all, even a bit of a dip in temperature shouldn’t keep you indoors with a young infant. Babies thrive in chilly climates - in Norway, it’s common for parents to nap their little ones outside in brisk temperatures. Go on the lead of your baby; their temperament will guide how long is a good timing for your stroller walks and whether they’re comfortable or not!

Hopefully, as the days grow shorter, you’ll begin to feel more comfortable with how to keep baby warm in the fall and winter months. Remember, walks outdoors aren’t just important for baby’s sensory development; a change of pace is a wonderful way for you to keep your spirits up in postpartum life with your baby!
