The answer of Dr. Philippe Kowal, pediatrician in Paris

  • "Moms tend to overdress their baby for fear that it is not covered enough, whereas in reality it is rarely the case.In everyday life, the ideal outfit consists of a body (long sleeves in winter, short sleeves when it's better) and a classic daytime outfit, ample and comfortable.

At home, to find out if your baby is sufficiently covered, here is a trick: take advantage of the moment of the change to make him a kiss on the stomach. It is normally hot? Everything is fine.
