Summer dressing tips

Remember that dressing baby in the sweltering months is all about keeping baby comfortable. But temperatures can be much, much colder inside restaurants and shops, so dress baby in layers or pack along a light, breezy you can cover baby in if the temperatures indoors or out suddenly drop. It's also wise to pack socks (or soft-soled shoes) and a wide-brimmed hat in the diaper bag for summer outings.
