Keeping babies and young children cool in the hot weather

Why does it matter? 
Babies and young children are particularly vulnerable in hot weather as they can’t regulate their heat and they can’t communicate how they feel very easily. They can become ill during very hot weather and their health may be seriously affected by dehydration, heat exhaustion and heatstroke, and sunburn. Keep a close eye on babies and young children during hot weather.
