Ensure Monsoon Magic, not Mania, For Your Little Ones
Dear mamas, if you want to enjoy a rainy day, you must be prepared to chase the storm clouds away.
Here are Greendigo’s tips for keeping your baby snug, happy, and safe.
Pick absorbent clothing
When the weather is wet, place your bet on Greendigo’s organic cotton clothing. Our thoughtfully designed garments are both breathable and absorbent. These features will not only keep your baby comfortable but also wick away any moisture, preventing skin irritation.
Dress your baby in layers
The rainy season can be an unpredictable affair. The solution; always be prepared. Dress your little one in layered clothing that can be adjusted according to the climate. Start with a base layer made of organic cotton e.g., a half-sleeved onesie. Throw on a lightweight cardigan and a pair of socks.
Choose comfortable footwear
The monsoons call for a firm grip. Select waterproof and slip-resistant footwear to ensure that your baby's feet stay dry and cosy when you're on the move. Avoid cheap, plastic rain shoes as these can cause foot allergies. Instead, opt for good quality shoes with skid-proof soles.
Invest in rain gear
Pitter-patter goes the raindrops… are you ready to protect your tiny tots? Make sure you have the following baby gear - raincoat, waterproof booties, and an infant umbrella. These important items will protect your baby from rain splashes and keep them warm and dry when you need to venture out.
Be on diaper duty
There’s nothing worse than a wet diaper during wet weather! So, always have an extra pair of nappies in hand. Greendigo recommends opting for eco-friendly diapers with excellent absorbency, to prevent leakage. Care for those bottoms throughout the day, so that your baby's delicate skin remains dry.
Stock up on wet wipes
For quick and convenient clean-ups, turn to good old wet wipes. This versatile product is a parent’s most trusted companion, ideal for diaper messes, sticky fingers, and grimy faces. Keep a stash of them at all times, this monsoon season.
Opt to stay indoors
On rainy days, staying indoors can be a delightful escape for mama and baby. Carve out a special spot with an array of toys to keep your bub entertained. You can even recite monsoon-themed nursery rhymes to set the mood. Did you know, Greendigo’s GOTS-certified organic cotton blankets make for perfect play mats?
Keep the nursery ventilated
Tackle this season’s humidity by ensuring your home is well-ventilated. This will ensure that your baby is comfortable and content at all times. You can use a dehumidifier for the nursery to maintain an ideal environment.
Care for your baby’s skin
Keep your baby's delicate skin healthy with a mild baby lotion. Humid conditions create an ideal environment for the growth of bacteria and fungi, leading to skin infections such as diaper rash and prickly heat. Tis’ the season to moisturise between those chubby folds.
Every season comes with its own set of challenges, but with a little prep, you never have to fret.
