Top 5 Winter Outfits for Baby Boys
Winter is finally here. And like any other mother, you are pulling out all the winter clothes for your boys as you know how challenging the weather can be for your little ones. The sweaters, the scarves the winter caps-all of it comes out of your wardrobe and you drape your child like a huge yarn ball.
However, comfort and protection go hand in hand. Dressing your child is a combination of comfort and safety. You got to follow the three layer rule. The three layer rule, allows you style your kids properly, comfortably and fashionably. This way you layer up your kiddo well, without him being a fuss ball of complaints!
A close layer of clothing to skin, it needs to be comfortable and smooth and it needs to wick moisture off and keep your child dry. Avoid cotton clothes. Instead, go for synthetic material or wool/silk blends.
2.Insulation or Mid Layer
An insulating layer which helps in retaining the heat. It also has to fit over the base layers comfortably, but also at the same time not be too baggy. It can be a wool sweater or fleece jacket.
3.Shell Layer or Outer Layer
This layer is important and it should be properly insulated and comfortable. The material used can be windproof and waterproof.
Though layering remains constant for all age groups, they differs in size and clothing style. Light weight clothes used for infants won’t be useful for toddlers and coming of age teens.
- Infants (0-1 years)
As a mother, you need to wrap your baby up, making sure it isn’t too tight and there is enough opening for breathing.
- Toddlers (1 to 3 years)
Once your baby starts walking, the winter clothing becomes trickier. As they’re learning to walk, they need the freedom of movement. You can use lots of light layers rather than one piece that is heavy and thick
- Kids (4 to 10 years)
The kids start to grow and there is a lot of energy exchanged by them which may lead to sweating. So you do not want to layer them too. You have to strike the perfect balance understanding the climate and your kid activities.
Pre-teens and Teens (11 and above)
Your kids are now grownups now. So they needed to dress like adults. It’s your job to make them wear the appropriate clothes and not bend to their choices.
