What else do you need to remember about the right "gear" baby for winter walks?
- avoid frostbite cheeks baby lubricate them fat cream before exiting.
- Pick baby underwear (wool + synthetic).In it the child does not sweat and do not freeze even when the active game.
- When allergy to wool, from thermal underwear should be abandoned in favor of cotton (with a touch of synthetics) sweaters and turtlenecks. worth noting that the 100-percent Cotton quickly absorbs moisture and then quickly cooled.Therefore, a bit synthetic in composition does not hurt.
- Tight clothing prevents normal blood flow - thereby increasing the risk of hypothermia.Maximum heat loss is from the head, feet and hands.Accordingly, it should first take care of warm hat, shoes, scarves and mittens .
- Looking in from the cold into the room , immediately remove the baby from the extra stuff, and then undress themselves.Going out into the street, baby wear behind, because otherwise, sweating and overheated, it can quickly get cold outside.
- Choose windproof pants with high belt and jacket, covering the ass.
- most common cause of hypothermia feet - close shoe .Choose boots for the weather in size but not close and not too loose.
