Keep baby safe – Avoid Summer Stroller Danger AS UK & IRELAND to see temperatures 25°C! 🌡️😲
Covering buggies & strollers with a blanket to shade baby from the sun can lead to ROCKETING TEMPERATURES and possible HEATSTROKE! 🔥😥
COMPLETELY covering over a stroller with even a thin blanket can create a furnace like environment! If there is no air being circulated under the blanket, temperatures can rise FAST! 📈🌡️
Signs of heatstroke could include..
⛔ vomiting and unconsciousness
⛔ rapid pulse
⛔ hot, red or dry skin
⛔ restlessness or lethargy
⛔ rapid, shallow breathing
How can you help avoid heat stroke?
✅ Stroller umbrella shades are a great option for keeping baby out of direct sun, but not letting heat build up. Or a specific cover shade such as the Dooky shade which will allow air to circulate.
✅Give little one more fluids than usual on hotter days. You could even try breast milk ice lollies if you are breastfeeding!
✅Dress baby in lightweight, breathable cotton preferably, loose-fitting clothing.
✅If the temperature is especially hot, keep your baby inside if you can.
✅Try to keep baby in shade when outside and check to make sure that he’s staying cool during any essential car journeys.
**AND REMEMBER – all babies under 6 months should avoid direct sunlight completely! ☀️❌
Enjoy the good weather and STAY SUN SAFE! 👍

Information from Baby Doc Club. Similar advice can be found on many parenting sites, likes Mumsnet etc. It’s easy done, as instinctively you thing you are providing shade, but you could actually be inadvertently causing the internal temperature to rise rapidly. Keep your baby safe, and dogs if you use a dog pram.
