How to dress a newborn in the summertime

How to Dress a Newborn in the Summertime

Summertime is always fun to dress your baby in colorfully patterned clothes, however, dressing safely is a different ball game. Summer is hot and fun for adults, but it's important to keep your baby cool all through the summer months.

Here are a few key factors to help you navigate the types of clothes you should dress your baby with;

  • Choose Loose Comfortable Clothes: Breathable fabrics should be your go-to all through the summer. Cotton fabrics for example are soft, breathable, and absorbent, which will make your baby cool and comfortable.
  • Avoid too much Sun: Summers are hot and your baby needs air but be mindful of sunburns.
  • Carry along with a breathable layering blanket: Yes, summers are hot but it can get chilly in the evenings. Simply wrap your baby with a blanket and you can enjoy your day.

Now that you are certain about the fabric you should dress your baby in, how about keeping him/her cool at different hours of the day?

Keeping Your Baby Cool Outside in the Summer

Taking your baby out to have fun during the summer is a great way to bond and make memories. But the heat is something to consider, so you should;

  • Get your baby out of the carrier as often as possible. Your baby carrier is usually made with metal and other materials that could lead to overheating.
  • Use a stroller with a shade. This will keep your baby cool outside.
  • Try a spritzer. These are fans that you can attach to your baby stroller to keep your baby cool all day.

Tips for Keeping Your Baby Cool on Summer Nights

Summer nights are not as hot as regular days but it's important to keep your baby at an average temperature. Here are some tips to help you achieve this;

  • You can dress your baby in just a diaper and swaddle in a light muslin blanket
  • Mesh swaddles or blankets are also a great choice because they are very breathable
  • It's also advisable to swaddle just your baby's arms and not the entire body

Having an air conditioner or a fan is also the best way to keep your home at the perfect temperature for your baby. Research shows that the optimal temperature for your baby fall within 65°F-72°F. Be sure to check if your baby's temperature is too hot by looking out for excessive sweating. You can also check by feeling your baby's chest for any hotness.
