Public health guidelines on how to ensure babies’ thermal protection are available (e.g. dressing with 1 extra layer of clothing than the adult); yet little is known on the strategies that parents adopt to ensure their babies’ thermal protection when these are carried in a sling (i.e. babywearing). The aim of this study was to survey parents’ practices during babywearing with regards to baby dressing and thermal monitoring in the heat and cold.
