Tips to Protect Your Little Ones from the Sun

When summer starts, it’s only natural for kids to go out to play under the stinging rays of the sun. And since our kids are more vulnerable to the sun’s harmful rays than us, here are some precautions to take before they run free in the beautiful sunny outdoors.

First, your kids need sunblock not sunscreen, as the latter contains one too many chemicals for their age. In fact, sunblock should be used for your kids until they reach the age of 5 if not more.

Besides that, your 6-month old should not be left outdoors with uncovered legs and arms. So if it’s really necessary to go outside, make sure to dress your kid in long-sleeves and pants in order to protect them from UV rays. With this in mind, you can opt for clothing and hats with UV protection especially if you’re about to spend a lot of time outside.

Last but not least, make sure to provide your little ones with a lot of fluids while they’re spending their time in the sun. This will definitely protect them from getting dehydrated and keep them refreshed.

Now that we have provided you with some useful tips, we want to wish you a happy summer!

Every woman loves jewelry and as a jewelry lover yourself, you won’t be in shock when your little daughter comes to you to ask for a pair of earrings to wear. In fact, every girl sees in her mother a role model and does all that it takes to look just like her. This shouldn’t worry you but to the contrary, it must make you the happiest and proudest mama on earth!

If you were wishing to make your daughter’s dream come true by treating her to a few jewelry pieces, the task might be a hassle because we all know how difficult it is to find jewelry especially designed for kids. Therefore, letting her borrow some pieces from your own jewelry box will definitely make her the most joyful little girl in the world.

But this dictates a few important rules that we will tell you about. First, you should take into consideration that the earrings should be studs or small hoops that won’t hurt her tiny ears. Second, limit her choices to the simplest pieces in your jewelry box in order to avoid her looking like a little woman – at the end of the day, her age should be the main factor affecting the choice and this what will make her look like a chic little princess.

Want some inspiration? Check out below our edit of the simplest ear studs out there.

They’re active, they’re dynamic, they want to have fun and most of all, they’re boys. So yeah, basically, they’re going to soil their trousers whether you like it or not. And yes, motherhood is a difficult job (perhaps the hardest, especially if your kids are borderline stubborn and raise hell every time they have to get dressed. But the thing is, you’ll never be completely satisfied unless you dress them with the same drive you would dress yourself – i.e., with style and confidence.

That said, kids – and especially boys – have little to no patience when it comes to fashion choices. And if you really think about it, it’s not the worst thing in the world considering the amount of stress you’ll be relieving yourself from. The trick here is to find the trousers that best suit your kid’s personality and everyday choices, so as to keep him in his comfort zone. In fact, you don’t always have to go for denim jeans; you can also dress them up really smart with a pair of gorgeous chinos or cargo pants.

And so, we’ve scoured 8 unique trousers that will surely score you some mom points.

Many studies have proven that nothing can enrich the imagination and knowledge of your children while improving their language skills and their way of thinking more than books. And with technology being at the center of their attention at any free moment of the day, you will soon realize that your kids are not taking advantage of the fun that comes with bedtime stories.

In order to avoid that, you should encourage your little ones – no matter their age – to read stories that let their imagination run wild. And if your kid reached an age that allows him or her to read a more difficult text, don’t hesitate to give him or her a book that enriches his knowledge about one of his or her interests such as cars, animals, nature, or any other topic.

With your kid’s interest and your comfort in mind, we decided to help you by narrowing down a list of the latest books that got interesting reviews out there. From stories to informative types, below are 7 releases that you will certainly like to offer as a gift to your behaving little angel. Check them out before taking him to the library for some shopping!
