Dressing up your kid is a favorite hobby for most moms, and that includes me, we are so engrossed in turning them into mini fashionistas that we tend to overlook their comfort. I’m not saying that you should dress them up in pajamas, I’m saying that you shouldn’t take it overboard. Dress them in a nice but comfortable way, summer is coming up so here are some things you should keep in mind when dressing up your child.
During summer times, we shouldn’t add many layers of clothing as they will feel really uncomfortable, instead stick to a one layer clothing style. Dress them up in a way you would dress up on a summer day, snaps and zippers are ideal choices as they look good and are easier to remove when you want to change their clothes or diapers. Please avoid ribbons and strings, it could easily choke your child if it comes loose while playing.
Precautions you should take when going out
If you’re taking the toddler outdoors, whether it’s to a beach or a nearby park, make sure to slather on some sunscreen of at least SPF 15 on them 20 minutes before going out. A toddler’s skin is very delicate and sensitive especially if they are fair so the sun can burn them easily. You would also need to get her a pair of sunglasses to protect her eyes from the sun and make them wear a hat. You can find sunglasses and toddler hats online or in a kid store if you don’t have any.
The sunglasses and hats can make them look adorable, especially snapback hats and if you are lucky you might be able to find a store that has a snapback for sale. You can pair this up with a cute sandal, sandals are important when going to the beach as the heat from sand can burn your toddler’s feet. Those are the basics you need to keep in mind when dressing them up.

Once you are outdoors, you should keep an eye on your child as she plays, if he/she looks sweaty or flushed, it is an indication that she feels hot so it would be good to take your child indoors or somewhere with a shade. Look for signs of overheating, restlessness, thirst, dizziness, cramps, and nausea. This might be uncommon but it’s better to look out for these signs of hyperthermia. If any of this happens, then wrap them in a cool blanket and call 911 as soon as possible.
