Dress appropriately: In general when dressing your baby you can dress them as you would dress yourself plus one thin layer. In wintertime, depending on your home temperature, it is usually best to dress him with a short sleeve snap top, followed with a warm footed one piece. If this is not enough, add another layer and see if your baby is sweating. In the warmer months remove layers accordingly. No blankets needed.
