Follow the tips below to help keep your baby cool and safe during hot weather.

Paddling Pool

Playing in a paddling pool is a good way of keeping babies cool. Keep the pool in the shade during very hot weather and keep watch at them carefully at all times.


A lukewarm bath before bedtime is often beneficial.

Keeping the Room Cool

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.


It’s important to keep your baby’s nightwear and bedclothes to a minimum, a soft cool cotton sheet would be ideal to use for bedtime.  

Do ensure, if you have an air-conditioner, the room does not get too cold; setting the temperature to about 24 to 26 degrees Celsius is low enough.
