How To Keep Your Baby Warm


Cold is one of the things that will make your baby cry all day and night. It might also cause diseases risking the life of your baby. A happy baby is a joy to everyone, but when the baby is crying or sick, parents and all people around them will not be happy.

The following tips will help you enjoy time with your baby by making sure that he or she is properly warm during winter

Keeping your baby warm at home

Dress them in light layers

If your house is cold, it is very advisable to dress your baby in light layers. Dress them in clothing that gives warmth all day. It is also important to purchase blanket sleepers to be used when the baby is sleeping. This will ensure that your baby is warm all night. They are much safer and warm than wrapping them with a blanket.

Cold sheets at night are very uncomfortable

Placing your baby right between cold sheets will make her cry all night. Most parents use microwavable rice heating to make their kid crib warm every time before taking the baby to sleep. Every other night before kicking with the bedtime routine, they heat up rice bags and place one in the kid’s bed hence warming it up before they sleep. The same can be done using a water bottle or a heating pad. Be keen to take the hot water bottle out before taking your baby to sleep.

Space heater

If your house is still chilly after all these, then a space heater is the left option. Space heaters are in many sizes including portable ones. Move with the heater all over the house depending on the part of the house you need warming. You do not need to get cold anymore because these heaters are very cheap. They also have inbuilt thermostat meaning that they regulate themselves ensuring safe and comfortable temperatures.

On the go

A pair of hand gloves and socks is also important. Parents are advised to carry an extra pair because most of the times babies chew them off wanting to free their hands.

In the car

Use trusty rice bags to warm your kid’s car seats. Most of us never practice this. Try it out this winter and you will notice how the baby will be fast to jump into his or her seat. Warming up the baby seats is important because according to the latest research we should not dress our babies in bulky clothes in their seats as in the event of an accident, negative space builds up between the baby and car seats increasing chances of injury.…

During winter or the cold season, everyone wants to remain warm. This does not, however, mean that we should stay indoors. Things have changed in the current world with most of the things being portable. One of the items that can keep us warm and can be carried around is a travel mug.

They are available in a variety of sizes, shapes, designs and one can even get a personalized one regarding their requirements. For your coffee, tea, hot chocolate grab yourself a travel mug and keep warm.

Insulation qualities

Metals are known to maintain heat longer and consistently than plastics. Double walled mugs are good at that too. Another disadvantage with plastics is that they retain odors and smells, less likely with metal mugs.


Most of the travel mugs can hold sixteen ounces or more. This is large enough for most of our needs. If you are planning to be carrying in your car, it is crucial that you ensure the bottom can fit in the cars cup holder. Don’t choose those with very wide bottoms.

The lid

Does the lid of the mug close? We have cheap mugs with a hole to drink from but not spill proof. How spill proof is the mug you are about to buy? The best kind of travel mugs has a locking device, with a seal to protect the drink from spilling when the cup is knocked down and guarding against car bumps. Does it require so much work to open the lid? Some mugs require that you unscrew the lid to open. This is not safe when driving.
