PLEASE DO NOT COVER BUGGIES OR CAR SEATS WITH BLANKETS IN HOT WEATHER

The NHS advises that you keep young children SHADED from the sun using a parasol or sunshade if they are in buggies during hot weather. However completely covering a buggy or car seat with a blanket can result in warm air becoming trapped inside which may lead to overheating! Breathing the same trapped air over and over results in a build up of CO2 and a reduction in Oxygen. Good ventilation is part of the general advice issued by the NHS in relation to the prevention of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
