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!
