Two to three layers of clothing is necessary . Sweaters, caps, rompers, socks are some of the wrapping clothes.

Netted Baby bed

If your baby is still a cradle baby then cover a mosquito net at nights. This not only repels mosquitoes but also keeps your baby warm. And for a slightly elder baby, who sleeps at bed, wrap him completely with covered clothes and socks as they never use blankets. Also netted baby beds are available for the cosy sleep. 

Avoid outings:

Since your baby is too young, minimise your outings as cool atmosphere and blowing air cannot be resisted by your child. Especially when the air enters their tiny ears, you are encouraging fever and cold in them. But that does not mean to lock your child in a bed room with covered blankets. Whenever you feel he wants to be taken a ride, wrap him closely and keep safe. Even on a stroller, covering completely is mandatory.
