KEEPING CLOSE AND COOL THIS SUMMER: WITH COOL BABY WEARING TIPS
Our little ones love to be kept close - so here are some simple tips for keeping close but cool this summer:

1. Dress Baby and yourself to Suit
Dress your baby in cool cotton clothes. Avoid synthetic clothes Dress your baby in lighter and fewer layers to keep cool.

2. 'Skin to Skin' Regulates Body Temperature
Keeping your baby close ensures that you are closely regulating your baby's temperature.

3. Moisture Barrier
Placing a small square of light cool cotton fabric between you and your baby can help absorb any moisture without losing the benefit of skin to skin contact.

4. Infant Insert Tips
If you are using a carrier with an infant insert - Peel open the sides of the Infant Insert a little to expose more of baby's torso, allowing for even more air to pass over the body, while still maintaining premium head and neck support.

5. Out of the Sun - Keep Baby's Head Uncovered.
Uncover baby's head when sun protection is not required. This allows baby's head to be fully exposed to airflow which helps further regulate temperature.

6. Out and About - Keep Baby's Head Protected - Hats/Using an Umbrella
Get a quality sun hat for your baby (Make sure it has a wide rim, and that it fits well) or use an umbrella to shade both of you - carrying portable protective shade.

7. Great Baby Carriers Solutions for Summer Check out our range in our Summer Cool Category. Here are some examples:
  • Mesh open weave options like the Ergobaby Performance Ventus Carrier and the Lillebaby Airflow and Lillebaby All Seasons give some cool breathable options.
  • Lighter fabrics and organic materials have the added advantage of being cooler - such as the Organic Fabrics of Manduca, and Ergobaby.
  • Moisture Wicking Mesh Lining- such as in the Ergobaby Performance Carrier designed to be lighter and draw the moisture away from the baby.
  • Cooler Infant Insert - Cool Mesh - If you use an Ergo with an infant insert then consider the mesh Performance Infant Insert.
  • Baby Wraps - The Hugabuglight weight wraps and the ByKay linen/cotton blend wrap all offer cooler options. - Baby Slings eg. the Hugabub Cool mesh Ring Sling offers excellent ventilation.

8. Stay indoors during the peak heat hours (10am-5pm)
It is best to stay indoors during the hottest hours of the day. If you need to step out in the sun, ensure that your baby is well protected. Walks are best early in the morning or late in the evening.

9. Let your baby cool off with some water play
Summers are a good time to let your baby enjoy some water play Check out our Aqua beach range with the sun protection water wrap and the sling thing carrier solutions for the pool or beach.

10. Take Baby Wearing breaks
If either you or your baby feels too warm, simply take a baby wearing break to cool off. Find a shady spot or go inside to some cool, air conditioned area until you have cooled to a comfortable range again.

11. Keep Well Hydrated
Be sure to keep both yourself and your baby well hydrated. Drink plenty of cold water and regular intake of fluids throughout the day.

12.Use Cold Packs and Damp Cloths
Small Cold packs can be placed in the carrier pockets or wrapped in a light cloth in between the adult and child. Placing damp cloths around yours and your baby's neck is also another simple but effective cooling idea.
