Can anyone help me with a fall/ winter baby check list?

It's been 6 years since i've dealt with a baby so I wanted to know what's needed now days for those seasons. Things have changed since my daughter was born. Thanks in advance for all replies.

  • A cozy cover for the car seat, warmer blankets, footed pajama's that are heavier weight, beanie caps, you can do long sleeved outfits and pants. It depends on where you live and how cold it gets. Our daughter was born in September in NY so it gets cold there so we had 2 snow suites, one was a lightweight one and then a heavier one. Jackets and coats, a humdifier (cool mist) and a vaporizer for colds. Lotions to keep the skin from drying out. Just remember if your cold then the baby is cold if you dress the baby according to what your wearing. If its fall and winter you don't need shorts and all that so warmer clothes and then some medium thick and thick fleece blankets.

  • One thing I found really helpful was one of the covers for the carseat...

    That way you don't have to worry about getting them into a big coat or anything and they'll still be protected from the weather.
