Here we are suggesting some age wise summer safety tips for your kids.
Safety for babies which are under 6 months:
The two main advices from the AAP to avoid suntan are to avoid sun contact, and to dress infants in lightweight long pants, long-sleeved light colored shirts, and brimmed caps that could shade the neck to avoid suntan. However, when sufficient clothing and shades are not obtainable, parents can apply a minimum amount of sunscreen with at least 15 SPF (sun protection factor) to small areas, such as on the infant’s face and the back side of the hands. If an infant gets suntan, apply cool squeezes to the affected surface.
Safety for all other children:
- The best, line of protection against injurious ultraviolet radiation (UVR) disclosure is covering up. Stay in the shadow whenever potential, and limit sun contact during the peak heat hours – between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
- Try to wear a hat with a three-inch side edge or a bill forward facing, sunglasses and clothing with a stretched knit.
- Try to use a sunscreen with an SPF 15 or better that defends against UVA and UVB rays on both sunny and cloudy days.
- Make sure to apply enough sunscreen which is near about one ounce per sitting for young children.
- Re applies of sunscreens every two hours, or after swimming or sweating in a day would be safe for your children.
- Follow the extra carefulness near water and sand as they could reflect UV rays and as a result in suntan more rapidly.
Heat pressure in child
Infants as well as small children are not able to control their body temperature in the same way that adults can do. Each and every year children die from heat stroke from being left in a hot car, often accidentally, with the greater part of these deaths happening in kids 3 or under.
