  • Take that baby outside. Yes ma'am. Walk outside and feel the weather. That is the best indication for how to dress your child. If it's cold to you it will be cold to her. Don't dress her like it's 20 below but you get the idea. Sunshine is good for the baby. Vitamin C does wonders. Plus you can tell her all about the sounds of the wind, the birds, point out trees. She won't understand what you're saying but the soothing tone of your voice will delight her.

  • Put on an extra layer from what you will be wearing. If you have on jeans and a long sleve t-shirt, have her in the same plus a jacket. Adn a hat if it's to windy. But otherwise, go and have fun, babies love being outside.

  • go have so much fun! bring an extra layer just in case she gets cold, or too hot that you can take off. bring a blanket so you can lay on the grass. talk to her about everything! it's a great time to show off the outside world. babies love to be outside, a million more things to look at!

  • yes! this is perfect park weather! just dress her for the weather. if it's a chiily breeze for example, but nice and warm, have her wear shorts, socks and a long sleeve shirt, or a zip up long sleeved so it can be removed if it feels too warm! enjoy! I believe my son was about 5 months when he first went on a swing and he looooooved it.

  • Why not? Go for it! Maybe a long sleeved shirt and pants, bring along a jacket and a sun hat. Have fun!! Bring a blanket to lay on the grass, and tell her about what you're seeing. She'll love it!
