Summer is beach and pool time; of sun and umbrellas, of hammock but those that you have infants in house well you know that when initiating this period of the year it is necessary to take extreme care. If the increase in temperatures, UV rays or water affects adults, what effect can they have on the little ones in the home?
Today we wish to transfer you a series of basic tips to go to the shore with babies. Surely you find them useful.
Matter of age
The big question for most parents is,”at what age can I take my baby to the shore?” Although there’s no exact answer, there are lots of approximate and approximate. In this sense, the skin of infants in their first months of age is very sensitive. The effect of sunlight, the abrasion of hot sand, sweat or sea salt may cause irritations.
In this sense, we suggest that you wait at 10 months of age to take you to the shore for the first time.
Time is the key
The time in which more sunlight strikes and much more damage are accomplished by UV rays is the time between the hours of 11:00 noon and 5:00 p.m.. We recommend that your visits to the shore with your baby are constantly at times outside of these periods and never extend these times of shore more than 80-90 minutes.
When You’re planning your first trip to the beach with your baby, the basic kit you must take includes the following elements:
Cream for chafing and irritation. Georgetown Wildlife Removal
Sunscreen with filter.
Baby bottle with water, milk and pieces of fruit in a thermal bag.
Toys and teethers / pacifiers…
A child wagon.
Obviously, you need to ensure that your child’s skin is fully protected. Thus, children over six months may use specific sunscreen for babies, with the highest level of protection, resistant to water and, rather, physical filter. Unlike chemical filter sunscreens, they do not absorb the components and don’t cause damage to sensitive skin.
Additionally, cover your legs and arms with tops and trousers clear cotton or breathable fabrics (never synthetic). Never forget your hat and that it is as long as possible under the umbrella, both on the towel and in your car seat, when you take him for a walk.
Hydration at all times
Infants tend to remain well hydrated with breast milk available, although it is a good idea to carry a thermal bag with your water bottle, as well as (for slightly older infants ) sections and pieces of fruit (tangerines, orange, melon bits ), nectarine… ) abundant in fresh and water. Keep in mind that the smaller a baby is, the more risk he runs out of dehydration.
You could carry all of your essential items as a luggage, toys as well as crate in a wagon that’s made for the beach.
