It's 46 degrees, drizzling, and pretty much cold for this area.  Ly and I head out for school with jackets, and I'm still cold walking back to the car. On the way back I pass a woman who is carrying a baby; she's wearing a coat, her 3 year old is wearing a coat and hat. And the baby? Dressed in a light sleeper. Just the sleeper, no coat, blanket, or hat to cover that little bald head.  

If you don't realize that your baby needs to be dressed as warm as you do then you shouldn't have kids.

    • Great point!

      When my son was born, I remember asking my mother, “How will I know if he’s hot or cold??“.

      She said a good rule of thumb was to assume him to be just like me, but a little more so. Like, if I was cold, he was colder.

      The sense that made might not have come to me naturally, but at least I had the wherewithall to ask somebody!

      Poor baby will probably have a cold by nightfall.

    • I’ve always heard that they should be dressed one layer warmer than you are.  I actually see this a lot.

    • I’ve never been able to understand parents that under-dress their children.  You’ll see them with a hat and gloves and the kid barely has a coat on and its freezing outside.  I always made sure my kids where dressed appropriately.  I always figured if he is over dressed and gets warm he will become fussy and that will be an indication the child might be warm.
