Top Child Proofing Products For Summer Baby Safety!

Things change in the summer. Suddenly strollers, swings and sunscreen are put to use. The thing is that child proofing in the summer is a little more difficult and take some thought. To ensure you are experiencing summer baby safety heed these warnings. First of all, it is not recommended to use sunscreen on babies under 6 months.

After that you should find pediatric recommended products or ask your doctor. The best thing to do to avoid sunburn and exposure to UVA rays is to dress your baby where their skin is covered and have them wear a hat. There are a lot of products specifically designed to block the sun and not cause your baby to over heat which is very dangerous for babies!

What You Must Know About Summer Baby Safety & Child Proofing!

Summer is also the time to take your child proofing outdoors. Look for ant hills, bee’s nests, holes and even animal feces in the sandbox that can lead to serious illness or allergic reactions for your baby. If you use insecticides or weed killers make sure that you don’t expose your baby to the grass for at least 24 hours, longer if you can!

Another common summer injury besides sunburn is danger that comes from being at pools. Never leave a child unattended around a pool – even while napping. Each year children accidentally fall into pools and drown without anyone knowing where they are. Use alarms as necessary and make sure that you are constantly aware of where you children are. Drowning is the #1 cause of death for babies and toddlers and no amount of child proofing aside from supervision can prevent it.
