Helping Your Baby Beat the Heat

As a parent, there are many things you can do when you get hot. Jump in the shower, stand in front of the AC, put some ice down your pants, or curse the heavens and dance around until the skies open up and rain down wondrous drops of cool, liquid joy. Okay, so maybe not every method there actually works, but at least you have some outs! Your baby, however, does not (enter sad smiley).

Newborn babies overheat particularly quick, and unknowing mothers might assume it’s changing time, or feeding time, or burping time, or nap time, or any other time except the time your baby’s really trying to run away from – summertime. So be cognizant that your baby can get really hot in a hurry, and be ready to do something about it.

Start by preemptively checking the weather if you’re going to be out and about with baby in tow. Anything north of 80, especially with the humidity, could cause your baby to become very cranky, exhausted, or worse. Try a lighter diaper, a onesie, and always keep your baby in the shade, even ensuring he or she has a little brimmed hat to fight off the sun (plus it’s stylish).

A kiddy pool is also a great option. You don’t have to buy anything deep and elaborate in its setup. Just get one of those plastic things, leave the hose in it for 20 minutes, and take baby floating around with you for some chilled aqua relaxation.

If you need to purchase some new summer gear for your baby, whether it’s a little pool, some onesies, a hooded stroller, or even some cool hats, you moms out there would do well to shop at Target. They have great prices on a wide range of baby items, and those prices only get better when you use a Target coupon code.
