The spring outfits for kids include T-shirts, hoodies, light jackets, dresses. Mostly, spring weather remains unpredictable. If it rains, the temperature can fall below 15 degrees Celsius.

Toddler Clothing Guide with Temperature


Toddlers are more prone to getting cold since their immune system is still developing. You may need an extra layer of clothes to dress up young kids every season. For example, during spring, wear your toddler an extra layer than you wear to be comfortable in the same environment. In addition, your toddlers’ room temperature should be between 68 to 72 Degrees Fahrenheit.

Above 75 Degrees Fahrenheit: American Academy of Pediatrics suggests dressing toddlers in one layer in temperature above 75. Check your toddler’s neck area; reduce the layer or clothes if he is sweating heavily.

The weather is not too hot or too cold between this temperature range. Therefore, dress up your child in lightweight clothes, preferably full-sleeved shirts, pants, undershirts, pajamas, and a light jacket. A light cap is crucial during outdoor visits.

Between 50 to 60: The weather starts getting cold at this temperature range. Layer your child with lightweight clothes such as undershirt and tights.
