Summer is beach and pool time; of umbrellas and sun, of hammock but those which you have babies in house well you understand that when initiating this period of the year it is necessary to take extreme care. If the increase in temperature, UV rays or water affects adults, what impact can they have on the small ones in the home?
Today we would like to transfer you a collection of basic tips to go to the beach with babies. Certainly you find them useful.
Matter of age
The big question for many parents is,”at what age can I take my baby to the beach?” Although there’s no exact answer, there are lots of approximate and approximate. In this sense, the skin of babies 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 old to take you to the shore for the first time.
The time in which more sun strikes and 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 always at times outside of these periods rather than extend these times of shore over 80-90 minutes.
The complete kit
When you are planning your first trip to the beach with your baby, the basic kit you must take includes the following components:
Ropita, towels and spare diapers.
Sunscreen with physical filter.
Baby bottle with water, milk and pieces of fruit in a thermal bag.
Toys and teethers / pacifiers…
A kid wagon.
Obviously, you must make sure that your child’s skin is totally protected. Thus, children over six months can utilize specific sunscreen for babies, with the highest level of security, resistant to water and, preferably, physical filter. Unlike chemical filter sunscreens, they do not absorb the components and do not cause harm to sensitive skin.
Also, cover your arms and legs with shirts and trousers clear cotton or breathable fabrics (never synthetic).
Infants tend to remain well hydrated with breast milk available, even though it is advisable to carry a thermal bag with your water bottle, as well as (for slightly older babies) 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 greater risk he runs out of dehydration.
