Babies and hot days of summer

Our babies like us feel the heat and are at our mercy to assist them keeping cool so I have put some tips down to help with these hot days .

Firstly babies like us require more fluids on hot days so if breast feeding offer the breast more frequently and DONT forget to drink plenty your self cold water is the best

If bottle feeding offer small amounts of cooled boiled water after baby has had his milk bottle

Dress baby in light, loose cotton clothing

Sponge bath baby with a tepid face washer this aids in cooling Head, Abdomen, arms and legs

Sleep baby in a comfortable but cool place checking to see they arent too cold

Fans in the room help but not directly on baby

Remember if you are hot so is your baby

Muslin wraps are light and breath and best for a light wrap if baby likes to be wrapped
