All you need to know about your baby's safety in the dark
Sometimes they may seem resilient, but in the first few month of life infants are still very sensitive and need a lot of care when the temperatures (finally) start to rise. Talked to Sarah Beeson MBE, parent specialist at The Baby Show, to get some advice on how to keep your child safely in the heat.
It can lead to high temperatures and drying out, which is very severe in infants. "According to a survey carried out in Sweden at the beginning of the year, when a baby carriage is placed in the midday between 11:30 and 13:00, it reaches a maximum of 22°C inside the stroller. "Check the baby's lip to see if they have small vertically drawn line and are not as bulging as after a good meal or a good drinking.
It is often a symptom of dehydration. No. Verify the security of mains drinking in foreign countries and whether it is to be drunk safely (bacteriological). In case of any doubts, use filled drinking oil. This is the case, for example, with Évian-Wasser. It may be difficult for you to weather the afternoon sun, but both you and your baby should protect yourself from exposure to the sun between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., and you should look for active shadows for the morning before, during and after lunch.
Avoid exposing your baby to full sunlight, especially from 11 am to 4 pm. It is also important to keep in mind that sensitive baby skins are much more susceptible to abrasion, so keep an watch out when you are out in the sand somewhere. No need to tell you again that only five cases of burns increase your chances of getting cutaneous cancers by up to 80% (oops, just now).
Again, this may seem apparent, but the same Nivea Health Interview found that 40% of adults do not put solar lotion on their kids even though it is very bright, while 58% are underestimating the amount of solar protection needed for use. Again, this is potentially life-threatening for a baby. "Although beautiful, walking around naked in the twinkling of an eye results in sunburned infants.
Restrict the amount of your child's stay in the sun to enjoy a secure solarium. "If your baby gets sunburned before his or her first birth date, you must call a physician immediately, as it may be more serious than it seems for a baby who has this baby. Your physician will ask you about your baby's signs and you may be asked to take your baby to the exam to make sure he doesn't need urgent care.
Next Baby Show will take place from October 21 to 23 in Kensington, Olympia.
