As Autumn sets in and the temperatures start to drop, it's crucial to ensure that your baby is dressed appropriately for both daytime and nighttime. During the day, babies might need underlayers and jumpers, while autumn nights call for cosy sleepsuits and baby sleeping bags. By following these tips, you can ensure that your baby stays comfortable throughout the season.
Before we start, we have a toasty-warm tip for you — did you know that organic cotton’s quality fibres actually help to hold in warmth while still allowing your baby’s skin to breathe? As babies are not able to control their body temperature, this is a crucial aspect of safety when it comes to preventing overheating, which is why organic cotton baby clothes are great all year round.
Daytime Wear for Babies in Autumn
Organic Cotton Underlayer
As we have mentioned, organic cotton is soft and cosy yet breathable, making it an ideal underlayer for the winter months. This is why an organic cotton bodysuit is a must-have for an initial layer to keep in the warmth as the days turn chillier.
Warm Jumpers and Jackets
Did you know that babies lose body heat four times as quickly as adults? So, over the underlayer and a long-sleeved t-shirt, you can add some jumpers to your baby’s outfits during autumn and winter. When you're headed out for a refreshing walk or taking your baby to the park, it's important to have a warm jacket or outer layer — you can also opt for a breathable cotton cellular blanket, which is perfect for wrapping up your little ones during autumn or winter walks. A hooded jacket is also a good idea come autumn, as it will protect your baby's head from the cool breeze.
As mentioned above, babies can easily overheat, and this is far riskier with synthetic materials, so make sure you choose breathable fabrics for your babies’ autumn jumpers and their underlayers.
Nighttime Wear for Babies in Autumn
Organic Cotton Sleepsuits
As the temperatures start to dip at night, you'll want to make sure your baby has a cosy sleepsuit to wear to bed. Footed organic cotton sleepsuits are ideal for autumn because they keep your baby's entire body warm, from their toes up to their chest, while allowing easy airflow through the super-soft organic cotton fabric. And best of all, they're super easy to put on and take off — perfect for those middle-of-the-night nappy changes!
The Little Seeds’ organic cotton footed sleepsuit comes in four unisex designs, all perfect for making sure your baby stays cosy throughout the autumn and winter nights.
Organic Cotton Sleeping Bag
At night, when it starts to get cooler, you'll want to make sure that you have a thicker layer available for your baby to cover them while they sleep. A cosy organic cotton baby sleeping bag is an excellent option for bedtime during the colder months. Unlike an organic cotton swaddle, which is also a popular choice for young babies, organic cotton sleeping bags allow babies to have their arms free while keeping their chest, belly and legs toasty warm — and safe from kickable blankets, which could cause a hazard.
The Little Seeds’ organic cotton baby sleeping bag comes in two thicknesses, 1-tog and 2.5-tog, which can take babies through autumn and into winter.
