Bundling Kids Up Safely for Winter Fun: What They Should & Shouldn't Wear! by Dr. Hannah Chow-Johnson
a year ago
Winter won't – and shouldn't – stop kids from playing outside. Just keep these tips in mind!
- If your child is heading outside to play in the cold, remember to dress him or her in layers.This allows the child to remove a layer if it gets wet and to keep moisture ways from the skin.
- When choosing what to wear, avoid cotton, which will not insulate when it becomes wet. Better choices are clothes made of fleece and wool.
- Make sure you change your kids out of wet clothing as soon as possible.
Enjoy winter safely!
