Snug as a bug: Here's your guide to keeping baby warm in all types of weather

The cold snap has arrived.

Winter is here and with it the darker evenings and chillier weather.

Of course when the frosty breeze arrives all we want to do is stay indoors all wrapped up but with Christmas markets and night time family events happening all across the country staying home isn't always an option.

Keeping small babies warm during the winter can be hard as it can be difficult to know what are the right amount of layers for them to wear.

If like myself you second guess yourself all the time about whether or not to put on an extra vest or cardigan this guide is all that you need.

The chart details all weather conditions from over 26 degrees (which in fairness we probably won't need to worry about in Ireland) to under 16 degrees, our current climate in most parts of the country.

For under 16 degrees the chart recommends layering up your baby with a vest, leggings, Babygro, socks, jacket and hat. You'll probably also want to stick a blanket on them if they are heading out in their pram.

While the post recommends all these layers it does also remind parents not to put bulky jackets on their babies when putting them into a car seat as it may cause the safety straps to become ineffective.
