Temperatures are dropping here in Utah, and we’re quickly moving into winter mode. But that’s no reason to hibernate until it warms up outside. Just make sure to dress accordingly. That means baby, too.

An infant can’t regulate his temperature as well as an adult, so parents and caregivers need to adjust baby’s clothing based on the elements.

This step-by-step guide shows you how to bundle your little one so he’s warm, even when it’s cold outside.

Winter Sun Smarts

An infant’s delicate skin can burn easily, so use sun sense year-round. “For babies younger than six months old, protect exposed skin using shade, not sunscreen,” Smith says. Shade provides 100 percent UV protection and doesn’t irritate your little one’s sensitive skin.
