Babies can’t regulate their body temperature until they’re six months old, so dress baby accordingly. They should wear the same number of layers of clothing as you.

Make sure your car seat is properly installed, here’s some tips on installing and ask for help if you’re not sure whether it is.

For eye drop time, lay your baby on their back and put a toy on their belly so they’ll look down. Place a drop on the inner corner of the eye, right by their nose. When they look up or open their eye, the drop will fall right in.
