Questions Parents Ask Regarding Three-Month-Olds

Is it all right to take my baby outdoors?



It is a good idea if your baby spends some time outdoors every day, as long as the weather is not too hot or too cold and as long as he is feeling good. Babies should be dressed for the weather. If he is sweaty or flushed, remove some clothes. If he is shivering or has goose bumps, add some clothes. It is important for your baby to wear a cap to cover his head in cold weather.

Use sunscreen made for babies. Put it on your baby before you take him outside. Even with sunscreen, it’s best to keep him shaded when he is outdoors. Keep him out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. The sun is hottest during this time. Don’t let him get sunburned.

Is it all right to take my baby to crowded places?



The only problem with crowds of people is the germs that your baby might pick up. People want to hold or pick up a small baby. Babies can pick up illnesses very easily. Try to keep strangers from playing with your baby. It can prevent the spread of germs. You should also keep your baby away from people who are sneezing or who have runny noses.
