1. Snuggle up in warm mittens, caps, and sweaters
This is the time when you can enjoy the adorable moments of your baby peeping from under the fluffy winter accessories. Wrap her in 2-3 layers of warm clothes, depending on the weather. However, check to ensure that she is not feeling too warm by placing your hand on her skin inside the layers of clothes.
2. Relax and rejuvenate with a massage
An oil massage is a good way to improve blood circulation and build baby’s muscle with some gentle exercise. It is a great way to strengthen your bond with your baby. It also improves overall well-being and puts baby in a happy mood. Ensure that you slightly warm up the oil and check it with your finger before applying on baby’s body. Massage your baby in a room that is warm, with the doors and windows shut tight. Massaging regularly keeps baby’s skin hydrated by helping it better absorb moisture.
3. Give baby a soothing warm bath.
A warm bath before bed is a great way to help your baby sleep better on cold winter nights. Remember that lukewarm water is ideal for baby’s delicate skin, as hot water can strip the moisture off her skin and leave it dry. Just a quick a 5-minute bath is all your baby needs. You can turn bathing into a happy experience by dropping some rubber toys into your baby’s bath tub.
4. Slather moisturizer onto your baby’s skin.
Immediately following a bath, apply a thick layer of baby cream or lotion onto your baby’s skin to ensure better absorption. If she has a dry skin condition like eczema, her skin will need frequent moisturization. Use a baby cream or lotion containing naturally nourishing ingredients such as Olive Oil and Almond Oil to prevent the skin from chapping.
5. Nothing works better than a cuddle!
Your baby’s body temperature can be regulated with your body’s warmth. If she is too cold, you could warm her up by hugging her close to your body. Cuddling your baby will have a positive impact on her emotional well-being. Hugging is a warm expression of your affection and also releases the happiness hormone, oxytocin. Alternatively, if your baby is just a few months old, you can swaddle her up to protect her from the cold weather.
It is advisable to use doctor recommended hypoallergenic products that are gentle and safe on your baby’s skin. During bath time, nourish her skin with a natural soap infused with Honey and Milk. Post bath, condition her skin with a cream or body lotion that has natural ingredients and is free from SLS and parabens. Your baby’s wellness starts with products containing natural ingredients.
