Remember that kids lose most of their heat out of their head, and then their limbs. Take some baby caps like the ones they use at the hospital. Make sure to keep warm clothes on hand! Will you be inside or outside most of the time? Try layers! A onesie under some long sleeved, footed pajamas worked well for us. I have a January baby, so I'm no stranger to this one! Also, find a large and warm blanket that you can drape over your little one while he/she is in the carseat. Make sure to periodically check his/hands and feet by feeling them. If they feel cold to the touch, I would go inside. If not, you are probably good. If you have time, I would see if you can get a BundleMe. It is is a blanket that is made to zip around them in the carseat. We had one-I loved it. You may be able to find one on Craig's List or at a second-hand store. Good luck!
