Embracing The Cold Weather With Your Baby Bump!

Being comfortable is essential to mom’s survival during her pregnancy, especially in the colder months. AlphaCord has put together a few tips for soon-to-be and new moms that will help embrace the cold winter conditions this upcoming fall, which includes the proper wardrobe, how to protect your skin, and more.

Snuggling season is here

So let’s bring on ALL the comfort. Large fluffy blankets, hot cocoa, scarves, oversized sweaters, and slippers are all a necessity. Treat yourself to a few sweaters that are a few sizes larger for your growing bump, a new coat, and some tread worthy boots to prepare for icy pathways.

Take a warm bath

The cold is here, which means dry and itchy skin is just around the corner. Take a warm bath. Stay relaxed and enjoy the peace and quiet submerged in warm bath water. Light a candle and put a few drops of lavender essential oils to give yourself a spa-like home treatment.


As cold weather and even hot bath water can increase dryness in your skin, use a moisturizer with natural ingredients and a face moisturizer that contains vitamins, proteins, and a sun protecting factor (SPF) to help nourish your skin and give you that natural glow. It can be soothing for both you and the baby to rub your belly gently; use coconut oil to keep your skin from cracking and assist with your stretching belly.

When the weather permits, get outdoors!

Take time to exercise

Staying healthy, mentally and physically, is important for both you and the baby. When the weather permits, get outdoors for some fresh air or take a light walk. Indoor activities, such as taking a beginner yoga class or taking a walk around the mall, are efficient as well to get the blood flowing. And always remember to consult your doctor before doing any physical activities.

“You cannot pour from an empty cup.

Relax and ask for help

When it’s snowing, you can drink a nice cup of hot chocolate or herbal tea. Enjoy reading a good book or catch up on your favorite shows. If you’re feeling tired, don’t hesitate to ask your significant other or a friend for assistance with the cooking, cleaning, or running some errands.

Everyone’s pregnancy is different. Don't forget to take time to enjoy the moment.
