That weather can drag in diseases like pneumonia. Here at this point proper clothing is the utmost necessity. Try to buy good clothing for your baby that can save him/her from coolness. Never allow your baby to keep in cool place for long time. When picking your baby from bath tub, immediately use a dry towel to make its skin dry. Use warm clothes and try to ensure all the parts of the baby is covered except eyes and nose. If you keep the ears open of your baby, it can be dangerous even if you covered rest of the body. So be careful about it.
