How To Safely Take Your Baby Out In The Winter

December 07, 2020

It is amazing to think, but after such a unique year we have finally made it to winter. But whilst there is so much to enjoy this winter, make sure your baby is warm and cosy this season.

For some babies, this is their first winter ever and their first Christmas ever. Whilst it will be rather different this year, there are so many reasons to go out and see the sights.

Whether taking your baby to the local day nursery or showing them the sights of wintertime, make sure to follow these steps to keep your baby safe.

The One More Layer Rule

One of the most important things when it comes to your baby is making sure they’re at a Goldilocks temperature: not too cold, not too warm, but just right.

A good rule of thumb is that your baby needs one extra layer than you when out and about. If you are wearing a jumper and a jacket, your baby needs that, as well as a layer in between to keep them warm, as well as gloves, hats and little boots to keep their extremities warm.

For walks and strolls, a blanket will work as the extra layer.

Don’t Forget The Waterproofs

With the weather in the North being the way it is, this is essentially a good rule for life, but if your baby is playing in the snow, they need an extra waterproof layer as well.

Set Time Limits

Winter days are often very changeable, so it is important not to be out too long if the weather is particularly frosty.

 As well as this, start your walks earlier, as the sun will set close to 4 pm in the winter months and you may need a little longer to get ready.

Wow!!!! Were to begin.. this is by far the best nursery I could have sent my children too. The staff are extremely... friendly helpful and ensure the children are cared for and they learnt so much. My children settled really well and have both enjoyed being here. Seeing them so happy and always excited for the next day at paintpots Manchester makes me feel so at ease leaving them. They are always involving parents in everything and make you feel like one big family. A massive thank you to everyone who works there and all you have done. Looking forward to extending our family into their welcoming nursery again in the future.read more

Sent my step-son here for over 2 years before he started school. Perfect location, great staff and most importantly, he... loved it. Only issue was the refurbishment of the building taking place, but they even managed to use that as a learning experience and the kids all loved the builders and diggers opposite!!read more

I sent my child to this Nursery after having sent his 2 older siblings. I work in the City Centre and they love the... place, they all did. There are staff that have been there for over 10 years, location is fantastic and whilst the recent renovation works have not been ideal, it hasn't affected the care one bit. Somehow, they even find a way to make activities that involve the construction materials. Can't recommend highly enough!!read more
