How to Keep Your Baby Cool in the Summer

New England is known for having pretty intense summer weather. From the humidity to the sun, there is little escape for late summer. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to keep your newborn or young baby safe from the heat, and Bourgeois Baby has a few suggestions for you as the season approaches.

Limit outdoor time. Peak hours of the day for the heat are between 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM. If you are able to limit your time in the direct sun during these hours, you can avoid some of the complications these extremes can cause a newborn or young baby.

Find shade. If you find yourself outside during these warm days, be sure you find a spot in the shade! No only is it cooler, it saves your baby from being exposed to the harsh rays of the sun. Remember, your baby’s skin is delicate!

Hydrate. Depending on your baby’s age, you might have a specific regiment for feeding. Be sure you’re keeping your little one hydrated, whether it be through breast milk, formula, or small amounts of water.

Choose appropriate clothes. Protection from the sun with long sleeves while using lightweight materials, like cotton, are the best ways to keep your child safe. Luckily, you have options for baby bibs as well. Bourgeois Baby has quality baby bibs made out of lightweight, organic cotton that are comfortable and safe to wear in all kinds of weather.

If you’ve been thinking of ways to protect your child in these warm months, our newborn bibs are a great option. They are suitable for longer wear times, which means less drool on their clothes and a dry, cool fit for the rest of the hot season.
