During this cold weather stretch, the staff of the Melrose-Wakefield Hospital Maternal-Newborn unit wish to remind you about keeping your baby warm while travelling.

  • cold baby 2• Store the car seat portion of the infant seat inside the house when not in use.
  • • Dress your child in thin layers- as a general rule of thumb, infants should wear one more layer than adults.
  • • If you have a hat and a coat on, your infant will probably need a hat, coat and blanket.
  • • Tighten the straps.
  • • Use a blanket over the straps.
  • • Don't forget hats, mittens, socks/booties.


Special thanks to our family of models Kristina, Patrick and baby Olivia!
