It's good to get out of the house, but babies are especially sensitive to temperature changes, so make sure your child isn't too cold -- or too warm.
Protect Against: Heat Rash
It's not just a summer thing. If your baby's bundled up, he can become overheated. Itchy red bumps appear when tiny sweat glands get clogged.
Skin Saver: Dress your baby in breathable layers, and remove one if he's hot. Use a 1 percent hydrocortisone preparation to help with the itchiness, suggests Sandra Marchese Johnson, MD, a dermatologist in Fort Smith, Arkansas. But the rash will go away on its own after a few days.
