Adding a newborn to your family is an exciting time, and you don't need to feel concerned or worried about bringing your baby home in the winter months. We've rounded up the Top 10 absolute must-haves for parents and baby's to keep you both warm and moving in the winter months. Our winter essentials are practical and can be added to your Poppylist baby registry with our universal tool.
Here are your ten winter essentials:
Don't let the cold deter you from getting outside. As a new parent, you must get outside and move your body for a moment of self-care, and this universal stroller/bassinet cover will be your baby's warming bundle companion. The bundle comes complete with a plush inner faux shearling and luxuriously soft outer thermaplush layer, ensuring your baby has maximum warmth and comfort. It's universal, so it'll fit in any stroller, stroller bassinet, or car seat if you use that to push the stroller. The BundleMe is not recommended to be attached to the car seat inside the vehicle. As a reminder, only accessories sold with your car seat are compatible and safe for use with your child's car seat.
We are obsessed with these wintertime hand miffs to keep your hands warm for a stroller ride. These comfortable muffs provide the ultimate protection for your hands while conveniently remaining attached to your stroller handlebar. The soft, cozy fleece lining provides substantial warmth, while the windproof and water-repellent material protects hands while strolling in cold weather. What's not to love about these chic muffs? They come in White, Gray, Blue or Pink.
If there's a chill in the air while you're on a stroller walk, you can keep your hands warm with these lightweight, touchscreen gloves. You can easily use your smartphone or other electronic devices without removing your gloves.
Getting out the door with a baby can be challenging, especially if there are extra layers for warmth. And spending time outside in the winter means your baby's milk might become cooler quicker, so having an option to quickly heat it up on the go is an easy, quick solution. The Baby's Brew is the first-ever battery-powered bottle warmer that can heat your baby's breast milk (or formula) to a perfectly safe temperature of 98.6 degrees.
For the everyday mom who's inside the home, running errands, or wants to add a cute jacket to their outfit, then this is the hoodie for you. This is the chicest baby-wearing hoodie on the market (trust us, we've searched *everywhere*), and it helps that the color goes with everything! Our favorite feature? The 3-in-1 technology zip-in baby-wearing kangaroo panel fits over any baby carrier or sling to keep your baby warm through the winter and beyond. Cute and function with or without a baby!
Have you ever seen such a cute outfit? Us either! This layerable one-piece bunting is perfect for the cooler environment for head-to-toe warmth. It's made of super soft fleece, guaranteed to keep your baby warm all day and all evening. The perfect layered outfit for winter walks in the stroller!
Parents, we know you need to stay hydrated and caffeinated at the same time, and it's why we're introducing you to Hitch. You can finally ditch the plastic and say hello to Hitch. The first full-size daily water bottle with a removable, barista-approved cup (and lid!) hidden inside. Being hands-free as a parent is a must-have, and this bottle and cup is truly a one-hand wonder that goes everywhere you (and your baby) do. This bottle easily fits in your diaper bag and comes in 4 colors: Natural White, Forest Green, Charcoal Gray, and Pale Blush. This cup is ready for anything.
Nothing compares to the soft and luxurious feeling of this legendary robe designed for the new mom. It's irresistibly cozy and the perfect way to start and end your day. Our favorite feature? The pockets. You deserve to stay warm and chic, even if all you do is take a shower. Who needs to get dressed when you have this robe?
If you are going to keep a reliable blanket in your car, this is the only one you'll need— trust us. The YETI Lowlands Blanket is the only blanket built for damp and dewy temps and one that'll stand up to babies, spit-up, toddlers, arts and crafts, picnics, diaper changes, etc. It's the perfect winter blanket to take with you to the park. Why? Unlike other blankets, this YETI Lowlands Blanket has a true waterproof layer and a padded insulated layer on the other side. Since water can't penetrate through, you'll stay dry and warm as long as you need! You can let your kids and pets sit, lie, and roll around on it as much as they like! Did we mention you can throw it in with the rest of your laundry?
If you live in a cold climate with a winter baby on the way, then this is the sleep sack you need. It's perfectly compact, grows with your baby, and it's a practical design. How? The sleep sack can adjust at the straps to meet every growth spurt your baby has up to the first two years of life. Woolino uses premium fabrics, like superfine merino wool, for the infants' four-season sleeping sacks to ensure they're soft and temperature regulating. What's not to love? Your perfect baby at the ideal temperature!
