Hot weather can be dangerous for babies because they are easily affected by the heat. They need to drink regularly, wear light clothing and be kept cool.
Keep your baby cool and protect them from the sun.
Cover your baby’s body, arms and legs with clothing, and make sure you put a sunhat with a wide brim or a long flap at the back to protect their head and neck from the sun.
Babies less than six months old should be kept out of direct sunlight.
Apply sunscreen to babies over 6 months and use a sunshade on your stroller.
- Keep your baby’s bedroom cool during the day by closing blinds or curtains. You can also use a fan to circulate the air in the room making sure the fan doesn’t point towards your baby.
- Keep nightwear and bedclothes to a minimum. If your baby kicks or pushes off the covers during the night, consider putting them in just a nappy with a single layer (0.5 tog*) baby sleeping bag or a well-secured sheet that won’t work loose and cover their face or get entangled during the night.
- A nursery thermometer will help you monitor the temperature of your baby’s room. Your baby will sleep most comfortably when their room is between 16 to 20 C or around 65-68 F.
