If your baby is cold while sleeping they may shiver or feel cold.

An easy way to tell if your baby is too hot or too cold is by feeling the nape of the neck to see if it's sweaty or cold to the touch.

When babies are too warm, they may have flushed cheeks and look like they're sweating.

Babies should wear socks to bed in cooler weather.

If the baby is not wearing footed pajamas having the baby wearing socks is a good idea to help keep their feet warm.

If the baby is wearing footed pajamas then they don't need socks but it's okay to have the baby wear socks if you wan them too.

In warmer weather having the baby sleep barefoot is better so the baby does not overheat.

When talking about sleep time in winters, a cold feet wouldn't let the baby sleep comfortably.

So, adding a layer of socks will provide warmth to the baby and help the baby in having a good sleep.

While it's important for babies to wear socks in cool conditions, pediatricians often recommend that infants go barefoot so they have the ability to fully wiggle all of their toes.

In fact, some health care providers suggest that going barefoot is vital for infant foot development.

If your baby's hands or feet feel cold, throw on an extra layer, just to be safe.

Your baby is too cold if you see mottling of their extremities, and if the hands or feet are cold to the touch.

Parents of long babies can try footless sleepers to keep baby covered comfortably.

If you're traveling, footless sleepers are great because they comfortable in warm or cool weather and layer well if needed.

Look for a footless sleeper that's easy to get on and makes diaper changes simple.

If your toddler feels safe and secure wearing socks, or if the air is a little chilly, it is perfectly safe for your toddler to wear socks in bed.

Comfortably warm feet could help your toddler fall asleep and enjoy a restful night.
