Now that the weather is warming up, you’d like to take your baby outdoors.
Even if he’s a newborn, you don’t need to wait (unless your doctor says otherwise).
Fresh air and sunshine are good for everyone.
Let’s talk about how to enjoy some safe time outside with your baby.
I’ll divide up this post into problematic topics.
Your little one has delicate skin.
It’s best to enjoy the good weather before 10 AM and after 4 PM.
Then, if you’re in the sun, don’t let your baby have direct exposure for more than fifteen minutes.
That way, you’ll avoid the strongest UV radiation and minimize the chance that he’ll get sunburned.
Since she can’t tell you if she’s too hot or too cold, you’ll have to guess.
Dress her as you would yourself for that kind of weather.
You don’t need to bundle up a baby to take her outdoors (1).
On the other hand, layers are helpful. Then you can remove the clothing she doesn’t need to keep her comfortable.
No one likes getting bitten by bugs.
Did you know that you can put bug spray on your baby?
Once your child is at least two months old, you can protect her with insect repellent.
