How to dress your baby for an Australian winter?

When it comes to dressing your baby for winter, you want to make sure they’re warm and comfortable without being too bundled up that they can’t move. You really can’t go wrong with high-quality organic baby clothing in Australia for the perfect blend of breathability, durability, comfort, and warmth.

Choosing the right layers

It can be pretty harsh in Australia during wintertime, and it’s essential to make sure that your baby is wrapped up warm, but not too much. Babies like to move and wiggle, so you don’t want them to be constricted by too many layers of clothing. That’s why it’s crucial to choose the right layers – something that will keep them snug and warm without being too restrictive.

Our little Elves’ example:

As an example, our Fibre For Good Organic Cotton Striped Sleeveless Onesie is the perfect base layer, knitted into a two-tone striped jersey fabric, and both colours replicate the look of harvested organic cotton. This particular bodysuit is soft, stretchy and breathable, allowing for easy dressing and comfort without restricting your baby. Add soft ribbed pants, like our Lil’ Atelier rib pants in golden brown alongside Konges Slojd organic cotton rib socks, and you’ll be able to keep your little bean’s legs nice and cosy whilst a Disana Merino Wool Knit Wrap Cardigan in Olive-Anthracite Melange can complete the set.

Your baby may lose as much as one-third of their body heat through their head

As your baby begins to explore their world, they’ll be doing a lot of head-checking, observing new details around them with intrigue. As they move their head around, they may also lose a great deal of their body heat (up to one-third) through their head, so the right hat can keep them at a comfortable temperature, which helps them hold onto their energy and build up reserves. You’ll keep your baby’s head nice and snug with a soft, woollen beanie or bonnet, like the Disana Merino Wool Bonnet in natural white. Made from 100% organic merino wool, this bonnet is breathable, non-itchy and odourless – perfect for keeping your baby’s head warm all winter long.

A winner for warmth and comfort

One great option for ultimate winter comfort is the Poudre Organic Cotton Jumpsuit with two-way zip, making it super easy to get your baby in and out of. Made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, this jumpsuit is ideal for delicate, sensitive skin and eczema skin conditions, whilst giving your baby a bliss base layer, which can combine effortlessly with socks, a jumper and a soft hat.

So, there you have it – these were just a few of our top tips for dressing your baby for an Australian winter. Just remember to focus on comfort, breathability and warmth, and you can’t go wrong. And if you’re ever in doubt, just ask one of our expert Elves! We’re always happy to help.
