It was -2 Celsius midday yesterday, and I finally took him for a long walk, of about 30 minutes each way in the stroller instead of wearing him. So wonderful for my back! I still haven't mastered the keeping him warm but not too warm. On the way there, his little fingers got a bit cold because I tucked them into his snowsuit but didn't put the mitts on properly, and on the way back, I think he overheated as I added an extra blanket.
WARNING: The following is definitely too many layers for -2C, as he was unhappy when I got home and his back was slightly red and splotchy which I assume was heat rash!
Here's what overdoing it looks like!
|A few too many layers for a sunny -2C winter day?|
- Cotton sleeper
- Fleece snow suit and little mitts
Mommy, why are you putting so many layers on me?
- Fleece blanket
- 7 A.M. Blanket 212 evolution on its smallest size
- Put the Uppababy Cruz stroller cover up to block the wind and the sun
A good double stroller can mean the difference between two happy kids or two miserable ones, exhausted from longer outings that little legs just can't handle. Miriam_WilsonReplyDelete
