Recommendation: Choose a soft cotton or fleece hat that covers your ears.
Make sure that the hat fits well and does not slip

3. Rain protection for on-the-go
Equip your stroller or carrier with an effective rain protection or rain cover
Recommendation: Choose a transparent rain cover for your stroller that protects the baby from rain and moisture. So you can keep an eye on your sweetheart
Make sure the rain cover is easy to put on and take off so that it can be quickly put on when the weather changes

4. Skin care in autumn: healthy and protected baby skin
Take care of your baby's delicate skin with rich care to avoid dryness and irritation in autumn
Recommendation: Use moisturising lotions or creams that are only suitable for babies
Apply lotion or cream after bathing and as needed to keep skin supple

5. Waterproof Footwear - Dry Feet, Happy Baby
Protect your baby's feet from wet and cold with suitable footwear
Recommendation: Choose waterproof shoes or boots made of breathable materials
Make sure they fit well and don't forget to regularly check the shoes for moisture

6. Indoor activities in inclement weather
Choose indoor activities to keep your baby busy on those rainy fall days
Recommendation: Play together, paint with finger paints, read something to your baby, or take a bath together
Create a safe play environment by removing sharp objects, childproofing the room, and keeping it warm
