Winter checklist

Clothes for winter – checklists

Would you like a little help dressing your kids for the cold? With some assistance from the Swedish healthcare services, we’ve put together three checklists that may be useful. Remember that active kids don’t need to be dressed as warmly as children that sit still a lot.

Babies lying in prams

  • Closest to the body – bodysuit and long underwear, preferably wool.
  • Middle layer – trousers and top in fleece or wool.
  • Outerwear – overall in windproof material.
  • Head – helmet-style hat in wool or cotton. A windproof hat on windy and very cold days. Choose material based on the temperature and whether the overall/sleeping bag hood is on or not.
  • Hands – hands are usually down in the sleeping bag. If it’s really cold, mittens may be needed.
  • Feet – wool socks and warm booties or folding cuffs on an overall.
  • Buggy – sleeping bag or combined overall/sleeping bag that can be used both in the buggy and in the car seat.

Children sitting in push chairs

  • Closest to the body – bodysuit and longjohns, preferably wool.
  • Middle layer – trousers and top in fleece or wool.
  • Outerwear – overall in windproof material.
  • Head – balaclava hat that covers part of the face and a windproof hat over that on extremely cold and windy days.
  • Hands – windproof gloves with warm lining, with additional inner layer gloves if needed.
  • Feet – wool socks with boots. Wool tights too if it is really cold.
  • In push chair a fleece or wool blanket.

Children walking on their own

  • Closest to the body – long thermal top and trousers or "super suit” in wool or polyester.
  • Middle layer – trousers and top in fleece or wool.
  • Outerwear – overall or trousers and jacket in windproof material. All of our outerwear garments are extra-roomy for optimal mobility.
  • Head – neck warmer and a thin hat or balaclava in merino wool and then a windproof cap on top.
  • Hands – windproof gloves with warm lining, with additional inner layer gloves if needed.
  • Feet – well-insulated boots that are roomy enough for extra soles and socks. Use a thin wool sock closest to the skin and add an additional wool sock if it is really cold out.

P.S. Remember to open up sleeping bags and overalls as soon as you get inside so that your child won’t be too hot.
