How to do layers right
Getting children dressed to go outside can be a hassle. You might wonder: How can I make sure my child will be warm enough but won't sweat? The key is dressing in layers.
A little-known fact is that it’s actually warm air trapped between layers that provides warmth. Make sure the layers aren’t too tight or the warm air won’t circulate. 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 can also save money. Most base layers can be used year-round, as long as they still fit! By putting on extra layers and taking them off as needed, a single outfit can adapt to changing weather conditions, and different base and mid layers can freshen up everyday outfits.
