How Do I Dress My Baby for Summer?

Dressing your baby in the summer season is very tricky. You cannot over dress them or they could get a heat rash. Their skin is very fragile so if you keep them in the sun to long they could get heatstroke, sunburn, and a fever. All of these symptoms could also result to SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). You will want to dress them in lightweight and loose fitting clothes to prevent them from overheating. Cotton is a very good choice of clothing because they ventilate and absorb water and heat.
