My TOP 8 HOT WEATHER BABY-WEARING TIPS
PICK THE RIGHT CARRIER
A sling is great hot weather carrier. Our slings are minimal in design and are made from cool and airy linen that not only blends seamlessly with your lifestyle; they’ll match your wardrobe too.
DON’T OVER DRESS BABY
In hot weather, dress your baby in one thin, natural fibre layer, like a soft cotton vest. This is so you don’t stick together, which will make both feel hot and sweaty! If baby is in a nappy only, place a little flannel between you both instead.
ADD A SUN HAT
A cute brimmed bonnet of a cotton sun hat for baby is vital! The tail of the sling can be hovered over baby’s head as a temporary shade too. (Always ensure baby has plenty of fresh airflow and that the fabric is not covering their airways.)
SUNSCREEENApply sun cream to exposed skin and don’t forget to protect yourself too.
BE A SHADE SEEKER
Stay in the shade wherever possible and travel light. Lugging an over packed baby bag is going to work up sweat.
It’s an obvious one, but often forgotten! Stay hydrated - especially if you are breastfeeding. Babies tend to feed morein the heat.
DRESS COOLChoose loose natural fibres and don’t forget your sunglasses and a large wide brimmed sunhat.It may even help shade baby too.
OBSERVE YOUR BABYALWAYS observe and monitor your baby to see how they coping and act accordingly.
Be safe, follow your instinct and have fun in the sun!
