Always a hat when outside
The Sun will be your baby’s number one enemy in the summer, even more than the heat. Newborn’s skin is very delicate and sensitive. Too much sun can permanently damage your baby. A hat is a great choice when outside. If you are planning a trip to the beach or the springs, make sure to buy a UV protection hat. The headgear you decide to purchase must have a large brim all around, to ensure that your baby is protected from all angles.
How much sun is too much sun?
The best way to approach the Sun dilemma is to think of no Sun as the best kind of Sun. Even the incidental Sun rays can be damaging for your baby’s eyes. Keeping this in mind, what other things must you consider when protecting your baby in the Summer?:
- Apply water-resistant sunscreen even when your baby is fully covered. You can never be too safe! The SPF of the sunscreen must be a minimum of 30. But, we recommend it for babies about 70+.
- Position your baby in the shade. If you go to the beach bring an umbrella big enough to ensure shade at all times of the day.
- Keep your baby hydrated. Whether your baby is just breastfeeding or they can already drink water, keep them drinking. A dry mouth is a sign of dehydration, if you see this sign, force them to drink.
- Maintain your baby cool, you can do this by seeking a breeze or bringing along a portable fan. Even using a hand fan might be helpful for those hot dry days. Splash your little one with a bit of cool water, when the temperature reaches an all-time high. The best places to wet are the face and the neck, to bring that temperature down the fastest.
Babies are very resilient, but it’s up to you to keep them protected against the weather. The Sun is your biggest enemy, so maintain it at bay with the different tricks we have shared. And remember you don’t need to buy designer baby girl clothes or expensive boys garments to have good quality baby summer clothes.
