Doctors do not advise you to tighten the head and neck of the baby tightly, as there are large arteries that expand from excessive heat and attract more blood from the legs and arms of the child. It is proved that kids with excessively warm scarves around their necks often suffer from sore throats and acute respiratory infections.
2. Also, with the promised weather and no wind, it is not recommended to wear a hood on the cap. The hood over the headdress creates a greenhouse effect that is harmful to the baby’s head.
3. Also, doctors do not recommend wrapping a scarf over the entire face of a baby. This is due to the fact that when the mouth is closed with a scarf, the air is quickly humidified and this easily leads to a cold.
