When you are traveling during the day, wear full sleeves shirts or t-shirts. When you are at the beach or by the swimming pool make your children wear a swimsuit that covers their back, arms, and legs. You can also give them a hat which can protect their head and neck from the sun.
Stay in the shade during the middle of the day
When you go out for summer shopping, add a parasol or a UV shade to your list, which can give a good protection to your baby while they are sleeping in their buggy. A light sheet or muslin is also a good substitute. During the middle of the day spent your time indoors.

A cool bath before sleep helps reducing body temperature. A nice cool bath is helpful for a better sleep. For the babies, it is important that they sleep in the room which has a comfortable temperature. Use a nursery thermometer to monitor the room temperature.
