How do you keep your LO's warm???

Ok maybe I just don't have a clue but now that the temp is falling I can't keep DD warm enough. Last winter she was swaddled and easier to keep warm. I have been keeping her in her jamies because now that she is mobile I can't keep anything on her feet that isn't sewed on At night I have tried a blanket, she wrapped herself up like a burrito and started screaming. So how do you keep your LO warm day and night? I need some hints.

Re: How do you keep your LO's warm???

During the day in the winter we wear fuzzy socks (when they were babies I would put little shoes over them so they couldn't kick them off) and layers. At night Octavia (3) likes to have blankets wrapped around her so that's what I do. But Ellie (16 months) hates blankets and kicks them off, so I bought some fleece pj's in a bigger size and put regular pj's on her and then the fleece ones on top.

You might want to try a space heater in her bedroom at night too.

Maybe you could get her wool or fleece longies with feet in them. I always put my son in a long sleeved shirt that is a size or too bigger to keep his tummy covered even if it slips up some for nights anyway. My son would never stay under the blanket when he was younger either. is your duaughter showing signs of being cold, maybe her activity level is keeping her warmer thna you think in the daytime at least.

Honestly? A halloween costume. get one that's a one piece with a hoodie (I have a pooh bear and a monkey one). It's what I did with The Kid the last two winters and it worked great. I would put it on him over his regular clothing when we were to go out and it would help keep his body warm with the different layers.

That's a good idea too, I forgot about that one. Last winter Ellie wore a furry bear costume as a coat and I swear she was warmer than Tavie was in her normal coat.

She's still in our room at night, I'm comfortable in a tank top and the sheets with a light blanket and she's in her crib with a onesie and fleece one piece jammies over it, but her cheeks are freezing when she nurses and her hands are popsicles and when I've been changing her, her legs and feet are popsicles too at night. During the day her feet get cold when she gets her socks off, I'll have to get her some soft shoes or something.

Maybe the footie pjs? How old is she? I've seen some sleep sacks that go up to a size 3T I think. We also put socks on Jayden.

LL Bean makes slippers that actually stay on little one's feet. At least by age 2, anyway. If your little one has cold hands, try little fleece mittens at night. While you're out and about during the day, just make sure their coat is rated for whatever temperature you're in.

At night, another thing you can do for those little ones who don't like blankets, sneak in their room after they've fallen asleep and then cover them back up. My youngest always kicks the blankets off, so I just sneak in when I go to bed and cover her back up.

Jammies are fine during the day, and can be covered with a sweater. At night, I'd use a sleep sack. There are some with arm holes and some with arms. I've used both, just with different things under them. (onesie vs full jammies)
