Now that it’s officially the hottest time of the year, it’s vital that your baby feels comfortable in his or hers clothes, whether inside or outdoors. Overdressing a baby can lead to overheating, which can then lead to heat rash, heatstroke or fever. Picking the right clothes is therefore essential to keep him or her protected and comfy at all times!
The Right Clothes for Summer
A good rule of thumb if you’re staying indoors is to dress your baby the way you dress yourself. If you’re feeling too hot or cold, then your baby is likely to be feeling the same. If you’re wearing a T-shirt or a cardigan, for instance, you can probably dress your baby in a similar style. Loose-fitting, lightweight garments (preferably made from cotton) absorb perspiration really well, so they’re always a good choice!
So Which Clothes Should You Get?
Sailor-themed outfits never go out of fashion – they always look cute! If you want your baby to look stylish and stay protected against the harmful effects of the sun, our Sarah Louise range has exactly what you need, for both boys and girls.
Because babies love to be wrapped for sleep, blankets are always an option too. While indoors, you may want to strip him down to his nappy and wrap him in light fabric, like muslin or cotton. Your baby’s head and hands should poke out, so that he can self-cool. Outside, socks, shoes and hats are a must, as your baby’s skin is very sensitive and can get sunburned very easily.
