Winter can be a magical time: a blanket of snow transforms once barren landscapes, while a layer of frost makes leaves and branches sparkle. But in the cold climates of Canada, sharing that magic with your baby can be tricky. While their eyes enjoy the shimmering scenes, their little noses and toes may not appreciate the nip in the air. To help prepare your baby for the wintry weather ahead, Disney Baby has put together five tips for keeping your little one warm, all winter long.

TIP #1: Appropriate attire

While it may seem like a good idea to turn your little one into a snow-suited marshmallow, be careful not to overdo it – you don’t want baby to overheat! A good rule of thumb is to dress children less than a year old in the same number of layers you’re wearing, plus one more.

Tip #2: Easy on, easy off

Opting for a cozy jumpsuit, like this fleecy Winnie the Pooh number, makes layering an easy task. Simply slip these one piece wonders over baby’s outfit as you’re leaving the house. With built-in booties and mittens, a snuggly suit will ensure your little one is ready to face even the chilliest of days.

Tip #3: Collect cute caps

Heat escapes through the top of the body, so always make sure your little one’s head is covered. For warmth and style, try these adorable Princess and Pooh cap, mitt and bootie sets – they’re perfect for tiny noggins!

TIP #4: Take brrr-eaks

Babies need fresh air, even in winter, and it’s perfectly fine to take your little one outside when it’s chilly. But it’s important not to keep baby out in the cold too long. Look out for fussiness or other signs of discomfort and if you see them, head inside for a cuddle!

TIP #5: Create a cozy crib

Your baby can get chilly, even inside, and many moms worry about keeping little ones warm while they’re asleep. Step one is to create a snug environment. Try using a flannel fitted sheet in your crib and a cozy footed sleeper to keep your little one toasty from tip to toe.

5 Things Pregnancy has Taught me

Now that I’m a mother of 3 rascals beautiful, tantrum-throwing well-behaved children, I would say that I’ve earned the right to dispense some advice, when asked, about my experiences with pregnancy and child-rearing. I will say right off the top that going into my third pregnancy, I definitely felt a bit more confident than I…

Mayhem Monday: We Got Germs

This week marks 4 weeks since I gave birth to the Little Lady. My how time flies. I can’t believe how big she’s getting already. I was just looking at pictures we took in the hospital right after she was born and she’s grown so much. I love that she’s having more times of alertness.…

My Baby’s Birth Story-Part 1

Now that the Little Lady has been with us long enough that we’ve forgotten how we ever did life without her (even her brother’s are still in love with her…amazing!), I thought I’d take some time to share the story of how she came into our lives. I don’t think I’ve shared a birth story…

Mayhem Monday: Surviving week 1

I did it! I survived week one of being on my own with all 3 kids. Surprisingly, it went really well. I guess when you expect the apocalypse, things can only be better. I managed to get Fit Boy to and from school, mostly on time all 3 days. I remembered to pack him a…
