Here are some of the best cold-weather products you should have in your nursery.

Good to Know

Safe sleep guidelines suggest all loose bedding and fabrics be kept away from babies during sleep to reduce the risk of SIDS.

Nose suction may be one of the more unpleasant parts of parenthood, but since you have to do it anyway, you might as well do it with the best product out there. The NoseFrida comes with a nasal sucker, mouthpiece, tube, and filter that allows parents to use their own suction power to clear their baby’s congested nose. The nasal sucker nestles right up against the baby’s nostril to create a seal so that you can clear snot quickly and effectively. And, no, you will not get any of your baby’s snot in your mouth. 

Simple Joys by Carter’s Fleece Footie Pajamas

When the temperature dips babies need a little extra material to keep them warm, but since you can’t layer up their pajamas at night, these fleece footie pajamas are the next best thing. They’re long-sleeved with a zipper down the front and a button at the top to keep the zipper secure and to protect the baby’s skin. These pajamas are made from super soft, thick fleece fabric to provide extra warmth while still being tight enough to meet safe sleep recommendations. 

Baby Deedee Sleep Nest Sleeping Sack

This sleeping sack helps to ensure your baby sleeps extra cozy on cold nights. It has a quilted duvet-like design to make sure warmth is evenly distributed across the body, the cover is made from 100% soft jersey cotton, and the filling is 100% polyester. The sleeping sack has snap shoulders to make it easy to put on and take off, and it has an oversized reverse zipper for easy diaper changes.

VTech VM350 Video Baby Monitor

When prepping your nursery, you’ll need a camera anyway, for any time of the year. This one, though, will help you keep an eye on the room’s temperature because it displays it on the monitor. You’ll know if you need to adjust the heat up or down or if you need to give your baby a little extra warmth with a sleepsack.

Late-night diaper changes are a challenge all the time, but they’re especially challenging in the winter when the wipes are even colder than usual. This baby wipes warmer will help remedy this. It plugs into the wall and can hold up to 100 wipes at a time. It also has a glowing night light to help you see a little better during changes. The warmer also has a 10-minute auto-timer so it doesn’t run too long and overheat. 

FridaBaby Digital 3-in-1 True Temp Digital Thermometer

If your baby is feeling under the weather, you’ll need a thermometer to keep an eye on their temperature and monitor fevers. This digital thermometer is three-in-one so it can be used rectally, under the arm, or in the mouth (the best method depends on the baby’s age). It can read temperatures in as little as 10 seconds, has an LED light to help you see the display even at night, an autostop for safety, and will do an auto second temp check so you don’t have to doubt the first reading. 

TILLYOU Cotton Flannel Crib Sheets

You can add a little extra warmth to the nursery with flannel fitted crib sheets. This pack comes with two sheets that are super soft, thick, and breathable to prevent overheating. The fitted sheet has deep pockets to ensure it fits a wide range of mattresses, and it’s safe for the washing machine and dryer.

A humidifier is key in the wintertime to help prevent dry skin as well as to alleviate cold symptoms like stuffy nose and cough. This humidifier is cool-mist for safety, offers humidity control, and will automatically shut off when the tank is empty. It’s also very quiet so it doesn’t disturb the baby’s sleep, holds nearly a gallon of water, and can run for up to 24 hours. 

HALO Micro-Fleece Sleepsack

Available in a variety of colors and patterns and four sizes, this sleepsack has the classic HALO design but with a thicker fleece material for extra warmth. It has a sleeveless design to reduce the risk of overheating your little one. The reverse zipper allows for easy on and off for diaper changes while the machine-washable material makes it easy to keep it clean.

Little Remedies Saline Spray and Drops

Saline drops are essential to help alleviate dry and congested noses. These non-medicated drops are completely alcohol-free and offer gentle relief. The bottle is designed to either spray up into the nostrils or drop into them depending on how the baby is laying and is designed to safely press up against even the tiniest nostrils. 

Final Verdict

Babies need a lot of things to get them through the winter, and their nursery could benefit from all of these products, but no nursery should go without a FridaBaby NoseFrida during the cold and flu season or a HALO Micro-Fleece Sleepsack for the nights when temperatures dip.
