The time for vacations will begin very soon and, of course, many parents will prefer to rest by the water. However, to celebrate, do not forget about the rules of behavior on the water.
The sun’s rays are helpful, but not at noon. Yes, I want to sleep, but still try to go sunbath early, sleep your own during the daytime sleep. Remember that hiding from the sun in the water is meaningless, because water does not have the ability to reflect the rays.
Do not forget to apply sunscreen on your skin after each swim, even if it is waterproof – it will not be worse. Before bathing, you should not take off the headdress, if you are afraid that the panama of the child will swim away, fix it with an elastic band.
Coaches do not recommend to use the inflatable circle for swimming. It is believed that he teaches the child to hold the water vertically, while in swimming it is necessary to take a horizontal position. Honestly, I learned about this recently, as a result, for two years already, my daughter was swimming with a circle.
Not superfluous will be inflatable sleeves. For me, it was a discovery that they should be inflated already put on the shoulders of a child, before that I was sure that my daughter was given a defective product.
Inflatable vehicles are popular with children – we had a giraffe, a turtle and a cat. The giraffe was uncomfortable with the fact that it constantly turned over, and the cat and the turtle had holes for legs, so it was more convenient to control and hold onto them.
Do not let the baby swim himself, no matter how he tried and asked for it. If you have already decided to rest with the child, be prepared for the fact that he constantly will need your presence and attention. If we are really lazy, take an inflatable pool to the beach, fill it with water and toys, and place it near you.
So that the baby does not freeze, it is necessary to constantly move in the water, and water aerobics are much more effective and more beneficial than performing similar exercises in the air.
In addition to swimming trunks or panties, it is better to wear a T-shirt to the baby, so as not to burn his shoulders. Try to keep your child not in wet clothes for a long time. The ideal option for a boy is a swimsuit in the form of one-piece shorts and a t-shirt. For girls, you can choose a one-piece swimsuit and throw a towel or pareo on the shoulders. The presence of headgear required.
ALWAYS keep the child in sight, do not allow yourself a nap on the beach. Recently I watched the Psychic Battle, in which the mother of a four-year-old child turned to psychics for help in order to find out the reason why her son had drowned while she was sunbathing. I was very outraged by this – it’s not a dozen children and two dogs, but only one child, how could one not see him?
During the rest by the water you need to have enough drinking water, because in the heat sweating, and the skin dries up. Watch what your child eats – after all, in the heat, food deteriorates faster, and intestinal infections are rampant. Do not forget to wash your hands – after each visit to the toilet, before eating, even fruit.
By the way, about the toilet – it is obvious that it is impossible to allow, and even more so, to accustom the child to write into the water. Yes, children often ask for a toilet, but they should not be relieved of the need for a common pond or directly on the beach. This is at least rude. If the child has not yet reported the desire to go to the toilet – use a diaper or special panties for swimming.
It will not be superfluous to take along a minimal set of medicines – peroxide (in my gel, it is more convenient), panthenol for burns. Also pre-determine the location of the medical center.
So that after a rest on the water only positive memories remain, follow the above rules. I repeat, for a second do not leave the child out of sight.
