From birth, babies crave skin-to-skin contact. Carrying your little one ergonomically in a baby carrier is the ultimate solution to comfort them or keep them close to your body. On hot days, however, this might not always seem easy. After all, babies are not yet able to regulate their body temperature properly, especially at extreme temperatures. The tips below will help you outsmart the summer heat and make baby wearing as comfortable as possible for your baby and yourself!
A baby carrier is actually an extra layer of clothing. A bodysuit may be enough for your baby on hot days. A sun hat and sunglasses are no unnecessary luxury. What to do if the wind picks up? You can protect your baby with a muslin blanket or with the integrated hood by Ergobaby and Tula.
Plan your walks
Do you go out with your little one every day? Then think carefully about the time and location of your walk. Avoid the hottest time of the day and go out in the morning or late evening, for example. It’s best to take a walk in the shade the trees in the forest or park instead – trees act as natural air conditioning – or go to the sea for a walk while enjoying a nice breeze.
Need to freshen up? Wet a muslin and place it briefly against your child’s head or neck.
And finally: use your common sense!
