    How to dress your baby as winter turns to spring One of the questions that we often get asked is about the best way to dress your baby in the transitional period between winter and spring, when the weather is unpredictable, and can alternate between chilly and mild in a short space of time. As all children are different, it’s impossible for us to say exactly what will suit your baby, but here are our top tips!
