Everybody loves the sunshine, but if you have a baby or a toddler you will find the hot weather makes lifting and carrying them harder whilst they are generally unhappy about being too hot and uncomfortable.
Nappies can make any child feel uncomfortable in the heat, however they are essential wear for your baby so ensure that their other clothing is loose fitting, in cool colours and is made out of breathable materials such as cotton.
If you are planning a visit to a local garden or a park nearby, make sure they are not in direct sunlight – at this time of year a small child or baby’s skin can be burnt in only 10 minutes or so and you may not see any of the warning signs such as redness immediately. A shaded area, a high factor sun block and a breeze are ideal for a toddler to keep cool and amuse themselves or a smaller baby can lie comfortably in a pram, with you supervising of course.
Having them both together means you can keep an eye at the same time and what better excuse for you to sit and enjoy the sunshine.
