My baby and the sea
Having a baby is a super exciting time for parents because they will have to teach their child everything, from toys, fun, etc. One of the things parents are dying to do with their child is to take him to see the sea. But there are certain things that you should keep in mind before taking the baby to the beach.
First of all, the protection of the baby’s skin. Their skin is very delicate because it is very thin, babies feel hotter and colder, it burns more easily in the sun’s rays, and it can be easily damaged. Dermatologists and pediatricians do not recommend the use of sunscreen in children under 1 year of age. So you will have to consider taking your child to the sea after his first birthday. Considering this, also think about the use of floats with an anti-drowning system, in addition to never leaving your child alone in the water and without supervision.
The benefits that going to the beach brings to the baby
- Increases defenses
- Strengthens the body
- Promotes a healthier lifestyle by reducing sedentary lifestyle
- Improves family bonding
- Contributes to improving the skin, especially if the baby has diaper rash
Avoid the hours where the sun is at its highest intensity. When you are enjoying this moment, do not forget to hydrate your baby by giving him a drink, since spending hours in the sun, even if he is under a shade, can quickly dehydrate him. Taking into account all the care, you will not have to worry about more than enjoying the moment.
