Stay Cool Top Tips for Babies

How do you keep your baby cool when temperatures soar?

The best way to stay cool and comfortable in hot weather is to keep your baby in the shade especially between 11 am and 3 pm, when UV radiation is at its strongest. A sun tent can provide shade, but make sure that it doesn’t get too hot inside.

If you do need to venture out in the heat, dress your baby in lightweight cotton clothing (synthetic fibres will make your baby sweat) that cover the legs and arms, and a brimmed sunhat. Attach a sunshade to the pushchair to keep your baby cool and to provide skin protection from the sun. Check that there are no metal parts on the pushchair that can get hot and burn your baby.
