3. Layering, Please:

Since you will be celebrating Lohri outdoors, you have to be very careful while dressing your baby. It would be a great idea to dress them in layers as it helps in trapping heat. As a new mom, it is natural for you to get worried about the chilly weather outside but please do not go overboard with clothes. Make your baby wear the same number of layers that you will be wearing, plus one. Your baby should be completely covered from head to toe.

4. Don’t Forget the Winter Clothing Accessories:

Mittens, caps and thick socks are a must for your baby. Once your little one is all set for their Lohri party, wrap them up in a light blanket. It is important to keep your baby warm and cozy but beware of overheating.dress your newborn 05

5. Be Careful of Over-Layering:

Too many layers of clothing can cause overheating and pose a risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. So, once you are done with the bonfire and your baby is indoors, remove a layer of clothing, even if your little one is asleep.

Dressing tip for mommies:

Now that you have all the ideas, I am sure you are all set for your little one’s grand Lohri celebration. Do remember it is your first Lohri too as a mommy. So, you also have to glam up for the big Lohri bash. All you need is a silk saree with polki jewellery and some light shimmer makeup to go with it. Wishing you and your family a happy Lohri.dress your newborn 06
