If you’re having a baby in the winter months or you live in a region where the cold temps come early and stay late, you’ll need a few essentials to keep baby warm and cozy.

Babies can lose heat rapidly and don’t regulate their body temperatures as well as adults, so it’s important to keep them covered and cozy in colder temps. Here are a few key essentials when it comes to adding winter clothes to your baby registry.

Warm their heads: Body heat escapes from those little heads, so hats are a good idea, particularly when babies are very little. They don’t need to be super heavy—a light cotton beanie-style cap will suffice in many cases, unless you’re out in frigid temps.

Keep fingers and toes covered: Socks, footed jammies or pants, mittens and bodysuits with mitten-like coverings can keep tiny digits snug.

Layer it on: Lightweight cottons are fine for winter months—just add more! Pair longsleeve bodysuits with pants and socks, a sweater and/or a jacket, and you’re set. If it’s particularly cold outside, add something heavier, like bunting. Then when you get back inside, or temps warm up, you can easily remove some of the layers so baby doesn’t overheat.

Here are some clothes from Carter’s that will work in those chilly winter months to add to your baby registry (plus a few fun ideas for the holidays).
