With the heatwaves of summer attacking us, it's very important to take good care of your little ones and their delicate skin. It can be very unsettling to see your baby in discomfort. You want to do everything you can to ensure your baby’s summer months go smoothly.

Don’t worry, having the right baby products is all it takes to keep your baby happy and healthy, apart from the AC or fan, of course!

Summer essential your baby needs to beat this dreadful heat:

Stroller With Canopy: If you’re heading outdoors for a walk in the park or a picnic, a stroller with canopy is the right choice for your little one. A canopy is an extra fabric which protrudes from the hood of the stroller and shields the baby’s eyes from the harsh sun rays.

Cotton Onesie: Fabrics like cotton are the best choice for babies in summer due to their lightweight and breathable nature. Clothe your baby in sleeveless onesies that will allow her to move her tiny hands freely and prevent her from feeling too hot.

Sun Cap: Don’t step out of the house without a sun cap! This is a summer essential that protects your baby’s eyes from the sun. Go for one that is made from breathable cotton and is both stylish and comfortable.

Diaper Rash Cream: Whether your baby wears disposable or cloth diapers, diaper rashes are inevitable in summers. You should get a prescribed diaper rash cream and apply it liberally on your baby’s bottoms. Once it’s fully absorbed into her skin, you can put on a fresh diaper.

Baby Sunscreen: Yes, babies have their own sunscreen too! If you’re planning to take your baby to the beach or any place with a lot of sun, look for a sunscreen product that has zinc oxide. This is an important ingredient that ensures your little munchkin’s delicate skin is safe from harmful UV rays. Most baby sunscreen products also come with cocoa, shea butter and aloe vera extracts to help soothe the skin

Baby Water Bottle: Babies above 6 months of age can drink water in small amounts. So, if your little one has crossed the 6-month mark, don’t forget to keep a baby water bottle and sippy cup in your diaper bag. If you’re wondering when to give water, look out for signs like a flushed face, warm skin, and rapid breathing which mean that she’s dehydrated.

Outdoor Sun Blanket: A lightweight cotton blanket is another summer essential for babies. These blankets are very useful when you’re traveling and want to swaddle your baby, nurse her, or change diapers. They can also be used as a burp cloth and play mat for tummy time at home.

Baby Lotion: The hot weather can make your baby’s skin dry, flaky and itchy. Baby lotion can do wonders for her skin, especially after bath time. Look for products infused with herbs that lock in moisture and restore softness and glow to the skin.

Wet Wipes: Baby wet wipes are a must-have in every diaper bag as restrooms may not be available everywhere. Wipes gently cleanse, moisturize and keep your baby’s skin soft and smooth during summers. The best part is that you can use it for so much more than just cleaning your baby’s bottoms. Give her face and body a quick swipe to keep her cool and cheerful!
