10 Ways to Keep Baby Cool this Summer

There are as many hot weather hacks as there are days in the summer, but with a newborn baby at home, it's important to employ ones that are both easy and effective.

I'm sharing 10 ways to keep baby cool this summer to ease the transition to warmer months and avoid the discomfort that comes from hot days and nights!

10 Ways to Keep Baby Cool this Summer

  • Don baby in lightweight and light color clothing for optimal comfort.
  • Wrap baby in a cotton or bamboo muslin sleep sack for nap time and bedtime.
  • Beat the heat with a lightweight and breathable baby hat with SPF fabric and at least a 2" brim. Add a chinstrap if necessary to keep baby's hat in place.

10 Ways to Keep Baby Cool this Summer in the Nursery

  • Keep shades drawn during the day or from 11a through the afternoon to keep baby's room cool. 
  • Create your own air conditioning unit in baby's room with a box fan and a jelly roll tray of ice. Let this run for an hour before baby's nap.

10 Ways to Keep Baby Cool this Summer in the Home

  • If central air conditioning is still on your home wish list, open windows and doors for cross ventilation.
  • Set up a play area in the basement for cool fun.

10 Ways to Keep Baby Cool this Summer while Traveling

  • Tote an insulated bag packed with frozen teething rings and damp wash cloths to wipe down baby's face, hands, neck and tootsies for a refreshing pick-me-up during travel time.
