Cold weather safety tip

Children aren’t as efficient at regulating their body temperature as adults.  They tend to lose body heat more quickly and don’t recognize when they are in danger. 

To protect your toddler from the effects of the winter weather dress your child in layers.  Hats, coats, scarves, mittens and waterproof boots will help keep your child’s body, head, little fingers and toes warm.  Make sure that wet clothes and mittens are quickly exchanged for dry ones. 

 Put a time limit on the amount of time your toddlers spends outdoors, and bring them in frequently to warm up
