Dress them like you dress yourself
Remembering to dress your baby like you dress yourself will do the trick. This means that if on a very hot day you decide pick a comfy lose t-shirt & shorts, your baby should wear the same. On days when you prefer wearing warm clothes due to the dip in the temperature, make sure dress your little one too, in a similar manner. To make sure that you have dressed your little one properly, keep a check of the temperature every day.
Remember to cover your baby’s hands & legs when travelling
On days when you are travelling, make sure that you cover up your little one’s hands & legs in order to protect them from the harmful sun rays. Although make sure you do not overheat your body by doing so. You can opt for organic cotton clothing whenever you go for an outing.
Dress your baby in an onesie when sleeping
Babies can get very cranky if their sleep gets disrupted due to heat. To make sure your little one gets a sound sleep, dress him or her in an onesie so they do not feel overheated & get a sound sleep.
Opt for light colored clothing
When you choose light colored clothing for your little one, it will make him or her feel better & cooler during the summer season.
