I’m finding that so much of being a first-time mom is learning things AS they happen. It’s hard to plan ahead because you don’t know what’s coming!
One of these things has been the introduction of cold weather.
First realization: we need more socks
Second realization: we need pants to go with the onesies
Third: we need more long sleeves
Fourth: we need coats
Fifth: Mittens! Need mittens.
Sixth: undershirts. warmer pajamas. a bunting?
Last week I put socks on Mazen’s hands to keep them warm. I thought it was brilliant, but his hands were still a little chilly after our walk. My mom sent me some fleece mittens from Amazon the next day.
We’re lucky that Virginia never gets REALLY cold, but freezing temps require lots of baby layers.
Please share your advice: what items should I seek out now in anticipation for freezing weather?
For walks. For snow days. For indoors. For outdoors.
