The last month of summer was especially hot. If in the first months all the time I heard disturbances about the missing summer, now it has been played out in earnest. What can we say, if at night the temperature reached 29 degrees?
Due to the intense heat, going for a walk with a 3-month-old daughter became problematic. Previously, we walked twice a day: from 10.00 to 13.00 and from 18.00 to 21.00. But now in the morning it is so hot that our walk was reduced to 10 minutes. This is the time I spend to take my eldest daughter to kindergarten.
Evening walks also did not remain unchanged. We leave an hour later, and we go in when it is already dark outside. However, such a schedule does not cause us inconvenience. We are happy to spend days in the apartment, where it is cool and cozy.
Of course, it is necessary to walk with the child in the summer as much as possible. Do not forget that walks in the sun provide the growing body with vitamin D, which is so necessary for the health of the child. But how to organize walks in such a way as not to harm the child, even if adults do not always withstand the summer heat?
Rules of walks in the summer
one. Move the walk at a time when the sun’s rays are less aggressive. Usually this time before 11 am and after 17 pm.
2 Choose shady avenues and parks for your baby’s walks. Try to avoid roads to protect your baby from exhaust fumes and dust.
3 Do not overheat the child. I often see how, in the heat of more than 30 degrees, the kids are dressed in closed blouses, caps with ties and socks. In this case, the mother goes in short shorts, a T-shirt and fan fan. We are a pediatrician said that at 23 you can safely undress the child to the body, and in the summer socks are out of the question. We adhere to this principle.
four. Remove the winter cape from the stroller. To many, this advice will seem ridiculous. But many mothers, especially those whose children are not yet sitting, prefer to close the stroller. Whether from cold, or from prying eyes. As a result, a sauna effect is created in the wheelchair, which should not be tolerated.
five. Do not carry the baby in the sun without a hat. Best of all panama made of light natural fabrics. It should not be too tight to the head. 2-3 fingers should be placed between the cloth and the baby’s head.
6 If you go to the pond, in any case, do not dip the baby in the water! He will not experience the joy of such bathing, but he can catch the infection.
7 If the child is drinking on the street, limit yourself to boiled water. Compotes in this weather sour too quickly.
And the most important rule – try not to allow the dehydration of the child’s body, the main feature of which is the dropping of a spring and its pulsation. If you notice these signs – contact your pediatrician.
Let the walk bring you joy!
