Beat the Heat on Summer

It's Summer here in the tropical country Philippines, and everybody can feel the heat even our little ones. Babies do feel uneasy whenever the weather is warm and distressing, and cooling them down is not an easy task.

How are we going to cope with the challenge? Here's some of the tips that can help our babies beat the summer heat.

1. Of course for those who have air conditioning at home, you can always turn it on the whole day if you want. Just close your eyes and pay the electric bill without seeing the amount to be paid because I'm sure it's twice the usual. But for family like us, keeping our place well ventilated by opening all the windows and to be accompanied by an electric fan is the best option.

2. Keep babies hydrated. Most babies will drink their milk 50% more than the usual. For babies 6 months above giving them water aside from formula is also an option.

3. Give your baby a bath everyday or even twice a day to freshen them up.

4. Lastly, don't over dress you babies with overalls just for the sake they look cute on it, instead let them wear cotton sleeveless shirts and shorts/panties/briefs.

These are some of the tips that I had done to help my little one feel fresh during the day.

How about you? Do you have any tips? Feel free to share.
