Summer is a time of family fun, outdoor barbeques, and running around barefoot in the backyard. Yet, with summer fun comes the summer heat.
And if those sweaty nights aren't enough to keep you up, your restless baby will.
Here's how you can keep your baby cool and happy during their first summer so the both of you can still get your rest.
Use sheets with care
You don't want to cover your baby with a sheet during those hot, sticky nights. This can cause overheating and will leave your baby miserable.
Avoid direct sunlight
You can expose your baby to sunlight when they're six months old. But when you do, you need to apply sunscreen that's at least SPF 30 a half-hour before going outside.
Skip dress-up for now
It can be tempting to dress your baby in shorts and sneakers. But dressing your baby in clothes when they're happy to be in only their diaper during the summer can make them overheated.
Increase your baby's fluids
Everyone needs to drink more fluids during the summer months. This is especially true for your baby.
It's important for you to give your baby the fluids they need throughout the day, even if they don't show signs of restlessness. This is because your baby can become quiet when they need fluids or are too hot.
