DRESSING IN LAYERS
Getting children dressed to go outside can be a headache – it can be difficult to know how the clothes work when the weather changes. How can I make sure that my child will be warm enough but won't sweat? The key to dressing correctly is to dress in layers.
Different materials work well in layers and the air that is trapped between the layers provides warmth. The base layer allows the skin to breathe, the mid layer keeps the warmth in and the outer layer provides protection from the wind and cold.
Dressing in layers also saves money. One layer of clothing can be used almost all year round, as long as it still fits! By putting on extra layers or taking layers off, the outfit can adapt to changing weather conditions, and different base layers and mid layers can provide refreshing variation to clothing.
