Summer is beach and pool time; of umbrellas and sun, of hammock but those which you have babies 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 small ones in the home?
Today we would like to transfer you a series of basic suggestions to go to the beach with babies. Certainly you find them useful.
Matter of age
The big question for most parents is,”at what age can I take my baby to the beach?” Although there’s no specific 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 the sun, the abrasion of hot sand, sweat or sea salt can cause irritations.
In this sense, we suggest that you wait at 10 weeks of age to take you to the shore for the first time.
The time in which more sun strikes and much more harm are done 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 beach with your baby are always at times outside of these periods rather than extend these times of beach more than 80-90 minutes.
When you are planning your first trip to the beach with your infant, the basic kit you must take includes the following elements:
Ropita, towels and spare diapers.
Sunscreen with filter.
Baby bottle with milk, water and pieces of fruit in a thermal bag.
Toys and teethers / pacifiers…
A child wagon.
Obviously, you must be certain your baby’s skin is fully protected. Thus, children over six months can use specific sunscreen for babies, with the highest degree of security, resistant to water and, rather, physical filter. Unlike chemical filter sunscreens, they do not absorb the components and do not cause damage to sensitive skin.
Also, cover your legs and arms with shirts and pants clear cotton or breathable fabrics (never artificial ). 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 stay well hydrated with breast milk available, even though it is a good idea to carry a thermal bag with your water bottle, as well as (for slightly older infants ) segments and pieces of fruit (tangerines, orange, melon bits ), nectarine… ) rich in water and fresh. Bear in mind that the smaller a baby is, the more risk he runs from dehydration. Look at Wildlife Control Fort Lauderdale for more details.
