It’s that part of the year every toddler eagerly awaits. Yep, It’s Summers; with longer days, shorter nights and all the more of worrying. Summers always call up for tonnes of fun, be it vacation breaks, trips to ‘Nana-Nani’s’ home or kids pursuing their hobby classes. We are pretty confident you are already being bombarded with questions like, ‘When do we leave? When are we visiting them?’ etc.

It’s just not these plans that require immense attention and care but the kids too. Summers can be harsh on the skin and their routine. Hence, it’s really important to protect them from bugs and injuries before they rush out of the doors. Today, we are sharing some summer ready plans that will make your work as a parent easier and your young ones’, more fun and frolic.

  1. Dress kids in protective clothing and hats. Clothing can be an excellent barrier of ultraviolet rays. Many light-weight sun-protective styles cover the neck, elbows and knees.
  2. For kids six months and older, sunscreens with an SPF of 15 or greater reduce the intensity of UVRs that cause sunburns. Reapply every two hours because proper application and reapplication are more important factors than the SPF..
  3. Dehydration can occur in extremely active kids. During exercise and staying outdoors give them lots of water and other cold drinks. Juicy fruits like watermelon, lemon and oranges will help the kid’s body to combat dehydration.
  4. Do not let them drink any cold beverage right after coming home from outside. The sudden fluctuation in body temperature might be hazardous.
  5. Make sure the child stays indoors or in the shade during the peak hours of the sun i.e. between 11am -4 pm. Try to plan outdoor activities such as skating, swimming etc. in the mornings and evenings.
  6. Kids must be kept away from stagnant water where mosquitoes thrive. If a child comes scratching from outside wash the area with soap and water 2-3 times. Then apply a cream or calamine lotion.
  7. Kid’s skin must be given proper vaccination against the bacteria and viruses that are generally known to spread during summers.
  8. Organize fun games and activities at home and make sure they enjoy in order to keep them away from going out in the sun.

These are tiny-tiny yet essential measures you can take to have a fret free summers!
