In brief: Dont over-layer

Most babies get heat rash by being over dressed and over heating.
This causes irritated skin and excess sweating leading to red, bumpy skin or 'prickly heat' or heat rash. Dress baby in only the number of layers that you need to keep warm and dont over dress. Otherwise keep baby cool and you should see less rashes.

In brief: Keep cool

Try not to overheat your baby.
Parent's tend to overdress babies. Heat rash is mild, and resolves on it's own.
