Baby Wear For Hot Summer Days
On a hot day, the last thing you want to do is dress your baby in too many baby clothes. Like their parents, babies want to feel comfortable in high temperatures. But you do not need to jeopardise baby style for practicality or to protect them from the sun’s harmful rays.
Loose fitting baby booties and clothes are the perfect option as they are easy to put on your little one. Summer baby wear will also be made from lighter materials such as cotton.
When buying baby clothes, look for light colours, elastic waist bands or baby wear which opens from the bottom. This will help make dressing easier in hot weather and will help your baby’s skin breathe, making him or her feel more comfortable. It will also make your job easier as you will not have to spend as much time bothering with baby booties, fussy buttons and zips. This is great if you are also trying to cool yourself down in the heat.
Baby dresses are an option for little girls as they will keep the air circulating around their skin, keeping them cool. The bottom will be open, meaning little girls will feel cooler when wearing baby dresses. Baby boys can wear shorts and t-shirts to stop them becoming cranky with the heat.
In hot weather, you may choose not to put a hat on your baby as this may trap heat. If you are worried about protecting him or her from the sun, invest in a parasol for your buggy.
