Winters are just around the corner and the first thing we change in our lifestyle in winters is our wardrobe. Winters are that time of the year when we take out all our jackets, pullovers, cardigans, trench coats out of the boxes.
But this can be a tricky time for all the new parents out there. As an adult, we have seen many winters and are well aware of all the changes that are necessary to make in order to protect ourself from the freezing cold weather but in case of a newborn baby who is facing chilly air for the first time, it might be a little difficult to determine the right choices of clothing to keep them warm and cozy.
What should my baby wear or is sweater too hot for the baby or is it enough to keep my baby warm? All these questions can send new parents in a state of frenzy.

So, the common questions that we get from parents are as follows;
1 – what is the right time for my baby to wear a sweater?
Humans are endotherm, which means that we are capable of regulating our body temperature according to our surrounding but babies are very fragile and cannot control their body temperature up to 3 months so it is necessary to keep them warm by means of clothing.
In winters, it is absolutely important for a newborn baby to wear a sweater in order to protect them from cold. In summers, even though the outside temperature is normal but if you have got air conditioner, it is necessary to swaddle your baby. If you cannot swaddle your baby and want to keep them more open, then make sure that your baby wears a sweater when the air conditioner is functional. It doesn’t have to be a fully covered sweater, you can use a sleeveless vest which will keep you baby warm and at the same time assures that your baby is comfortable.
2- which material sweater is good for baby?
Normal wool which is used to make sweaters for adults may cause rashes or allergy to a baby because a newborn baby skin is softer and more sensitive when compared to an adult. To avoid any harm to baby’s skin, sweater made from baby wool should be worn so that your baby is cozy and comfortable.
