Dressing for cold weather

Dress your child for winter weather as you would dress yourself. It is ALWAYS important to keep your child’s head covered, as well as hands and feet. Dress your child in layers of clothing, removing or adding clothing as temperature and comfort dictate. Change wet clothing immediately. Wet clothing provides almost no protection against the cold and may cause loss of body heat.
