It's winter here and our place doesn't have central heating. We have been using freestanding heaters and layers of clothing to keep warm. In order to keep our daughter's hands warm, I've been putting socks on her hands.
I've been trying to limit this to overnight when it's coldest but have had to during the day as well because it has been particularly cold this week so far. We're expecting it to be this cold all week, and for the majority of the next month at least, although there will be warm days.
Would covering her hands for the next few weeks the majority of the time be a problem for her development? Although she is very small and isn't doing much with them right now, I am concerned about her not having a range of tactile things to feel if she's just feeling socks all day.
