Protection from April Showers and Other Spring Weather

beach baby

The end of winter is a beautiful thing, but it can also bring some not-so-beautiful weather. Rain, snow (especially if you’re in Minnesota), wind, sleet… spring has everything. And when you have a newborn, you want to protect them from every drop and every breeze! At least I did. Here are a few items you can find to help you protect your newborn from the spring elements.

Clip-on umbrella shade or sun shield for strollers: You can find umbrellas made specifically for strollers. Their handles are clips, and you can place it in the optimal position to protect your little one from the sun’s harsh rays or from rain. You can also purchase sun shields. Check out your stroller brand to see if it requires a shade in the same brand.

Car seat bunting bags: These are those cozy covers that fit right over your infant car seat. They can be fleece or other fabrics, have little peek-a-boo windows, and the elastic around the edges make it a snug fit for safety. This is great for chilly spring weather or rain.
