Dressing your baby during summer demands a serious sense of baby fashion and a keen awareness of baby health and safety. From overheating from excessive clothing to sunburn and skin damage from too sparse clothing and exposure during the summer, good skin cover and simple cool clothing help keep the baby comfortable, happy and safe during this period.
DRESS THE BABY in a cotton onesie, which is a T-shirt with straps that fasten between the baby’s legs to keep it in place. Also, choose only light colors in the outdoors to keep the baby cool. The T-shirt (onesie) allows you to add extra clothing layers or take them off if necessary in case of a change in temperature while still providing necessary cover and protection for the baby and the skin.
DRESS THE BABY in a pair of shorts, skirts or a pair of pants (lightweight) over the onesie. Choosing short clothing items over the bottoms allows the baby legs to take on fresh air and stay cool especially on the outdoor. For girls, a sundress for newborns can replace the onesie and short combination for freshness, comfort, coolness and styles.
DRESS THE BABY in extra layers of additional lightweight sleepers or long sleeved shirt indoors in a cool air-conditioned room. Add socks if the feet get cold and/or the room gets chilly. Feel for his hands, feet, neck, and forehead to ensure the baby isn’t cold.
DRESS THE BABY in appropriate pajamas that is suitable for the room temperature for sleep. Choose a heavy sleeper or lightweight blanket if the room is air-conditioned. Dress the baby in lighter sleeper if the room is warm during warm summer nights
DRESS THE BABY in the exact number of layers you are wearing comfortably plus one extra layer. If you are on a T-shirt and sweater, add a vest or a sleep-suit or cardigan. If in very hot conditions, a vest, a nappy and a pair of socks will be just fine.
