How to Layer Like a Pro: Keep Your Little One Toasty This Winter!

Winter is here, and it’s time to keep your little one cosy and snug! Layering is essential to make sure your baby stays warm and comfy throughout the cold months. At Ackermans, we understand the importance of affordable and quality baby clothing, so we’re here to guide you on how to layer like a pro.

We’ve got you covered with practical tips and stylish ideas to keep your little one snug and cosy.


The foundation of a well-layered outfit begins with a quality vest or babygrow. A vest acts as a base layer to keep your baby’s core warm, while a babygrow provides comfort and flexibility. Choose soft, breathable fabrics that are gentle on your baby’s delicate skin. Ensure a snug fit for both the vest and babygrow to help retain body heat effectively.


To make sure your baby stays extra warm, layer a tracksuit over the babygrow or vest for those really cold days. Tracksuits are not only cosy but also offers great protection against cold drafts. Our tracksuits are made from warm, soft materials in a range of colours to add a touch of style to your little one’s winter outfits.


If your babygrow doesn’t come with a hood, simply add an adorable beanie to keep your baby’s head warm. Beanies are not just super cute but it’s also essential for preventing heat loss through the head. Make sure you get a beanie made from soft, breathable fabric that covers the ears and fits securely without being too tight.


For those chilly outings, don’t forget to accessorise! Warm socks and gloves are perfect for keeping your little one cosy during outdoor adventures. Choose gloves that are easy to slip on and off while giving warmth. Remember to choose gloves that are right for your baby’s age to ensure their safety.

By mastering the art of layering, you can keep your little one toasty and stylish throughout the winter season. At Ackermans, we offer a wide range of affordable and quality baby clothing to make the layering process easier for you.

REMEMBER: If your baby feels warm to the touch or their skin turns red, it might mean that you’ve outdone yourself and added too many layers. Don’t stress, just remove one or two layers until they seem comfortable.
