Keeping Your Newborn Warm All Winter Long
Keeping your newborn warm is of the utmost importance. Infants do not have the ability to regulate their body heat like adults. They also tend to have a lower amount of body fat, causing them to lose heat more easily. If an infant loses too much heat, their body may pause many of the vital developmental processes that take place in the first year of life. It’s crucial to keep your baby at the perfect temperature all winter long, and the Glen Allen Pediatrics team is here to help with some useful tips!
