Winter weather is hastily headed this way, and the frigid temps have already arrived. Brrr! Now is the time to make sure your kiddo has the best snow boots this season to keep their tiny tootsies toasty and dry.
It's also essential to choose the correct size advises Dr. Velimir Petkov, Medical Director of Premier Podiatry. "When shopping for children's snow boots, you should choose boots that are half a size to a size larger than your child's foot size to allow room for thick socks. Our feet and hands tend to be the first body parts to get cold, so proper insulation is key," says Dr. Petkov. "One of the main concerns when walking or playing outside in the snow is falling. Foot and ankle injuries are extremely common in the cold months. Make sure that you select soles constructed of rubber that provide a good grip when confronted with moisture."
Baby accessorizing is nothing new, especially headwear. Little ones are known to lose heat through their heads, so a little coverage over that fuzzy head is key in their early months—then make it fashion! These days, celebrity mommies and mommy bloggers everywhere take to Instagram daily to show off how they're dressing up their little ones, and we can't help but swoon. One style, in particular, has been taking baby fashion by a storm: Headwraps and top knots.
This sweet look is a chic upgrade from your average beanie or little hat. It can be spotted on the babies of a lot of celebrity moms from Hilary Duff to Kate Hudson and Khloe Kardashian. If your infant is always on the move, the turban and top knots are designed to stay put, unlike some other hats and accessories that spend more time on the floor than on your baby's noggin. The wraps are easy to slide on, too—yes, even on a very squirmy babe. We've hand-picked our favorite turbans, top knots and headwraps from Amazon, Etsy and more so your stylish baby can don some flair, without sacrificing comfort.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics Childhood Sleep Guidelines, infants should sleep between 12 to 16 hours, while growing toddlers should grab between 11 to 14 hours of shut-eye. That's why picking the perfect crib mattress is key for a good night (and naptime) slumber for your little lamb.
While there are several factors to consider when choosing a crib mattress and setting up a safe sleep environment for your child. Parents should select "a firm mattress that is made for the crib, meaning perfect in size with a tight-fitting sheet," suggests S. Daniel Ganjian, MD, a pediatrician at Providence Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California. "There should be no space between the mattress and the sides of the crib."
And other than a fitted sheet, there shouldn't be anything in the baby's bed, particularly during the first year. "The most common mistake that parents make is putting something in the crib besides a tightly swaddled baby," says Gina Posner, MD, a pediatrician at MemorialCare Orange Coast Medical Center in Fountain Valley, CA. "There should be no stuffed animals, no crib bumpers and no sleep positioners. Just make sure it is a new crib that is up to current standards."
Dr. Ganjian also advises against using an old crib and mattress. "Hand me downs used to be great, but now you really have to watch out for them, since many have been recalled or are dangerous because there is some subtle defect that you might not be aware of."
