The best way is to dress them in layers and if you feel its warm outside you can remove the top jacket or shrug to make them comfortable and vice-versa as per the weather you experience outside!

Always bathe your toddler at a fixed time before noon during the winters because after the noon there is hardly any warmth left in the sun rays and if may result in cold & runny nose! Bathe your toddler with warm water but not too hot because the skin will turn extreme dry with hot water!


Always set the air conditioner or room heater to an optimum temperature so that if your baby is going out for a few hours, it doesn’t affect much. Room temperature & bathroom temperature should be almost same for the baby!

Keep your toddler hydrated enough-


Even if it is winter season, keep your baby hydrated at all times. If they do not drink enough water, make sure to compensate the fluid with natural juices, milk, vegetable soups etc.

There are thousands of bacteria which might make your toddler fall sick if these things are not taken care of! Wash their clothes properly and use an anti-bacterial cleanser or mix dettol with their clothes while washing. Winter outfits need to be washed very gently & carefully! Always dry your baby clothes outdoors in the sun! Damp clothes attract bacteria present in the air!

Do Not Panic with Mild infections-

Mild infections should not bother you at all! This is a part of your toddler growing up and developing a self defense mechanism to fight common cold, cough & fever! Let their immune system fight on its own when it is in mild form! I f the problem persists then only take correcting measures! 🙂
