1. Pick the Right Clothes.
Dress you baby in loose-fitting, lightweight clothes preferably made from a natural fibre like cotton.
2. Make use of Air Ventilation.
Remove any padding from around your baby’s cot to allow for ventilation. Open windows in a few rooms in the house to allow for a through-breeze.
3. Keep your Baby Hydrated
Make sure your baby is drinking enough throughout the day. If you are still breastfeeding, nurse more frequently. If your baby takes a bottle, give him extra formula.
4. Limit Outdoor Activities.
Outdoor activities should be limited between 10am and 2pm when the sun is at its hottest. Try to keep baby in the shade at all times.
5. Limit Skin-to-Skin Contact
Heat is transferred much faster via skin contact. If you are still breast feeding or must keep your baby on you for some other reason, put a cotton sheet/cloth between you and your baby.
