Summer Safety - A Guide To Keeping Your Little One Safe This Summer
Wednesday, January 30, 2019
Summer is a time for family fun and bright adventures, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t safety measures you should put in place during this time. To enjoy long summer days and longer nights, put these simple summer safety measures into practice to give you total peace of mind.
Summer calls for entertaining alfresco and endless BBQ’s. This packed social calendar, while exciting, does open the opportunity for safety slips around the home. When there are so many people coming and going from your home in Summer, you will need to have the right gate barriers in place to mitigate this flow. Without the right barriers in place, your crawlers will be able to access rooms that may not be safe and could even point them towards the road or unsafe machinery.
Indoor safety accessories
While there is a lot to love about summer, it can sometimes be too warm for your babies or toddlers. This typically means more activities take place inside in the cool, so there is a greater need for your home to be fitted out with the right indoor safety accessories. These measures can be anything from safety multi-purpose straps, cord shorteners, finger pinch guards and cabinet drawer latches. Modern safety accessories are no longer clunky and obtrusive, and most are clear and subtle in design.
Moderate body temperatures
Throughout the rest of the year, you can make an assumption that your little ones are not buckling to the will of the seasons. Summer is a different story entirely. Summer is felt even stronger by children, and can cause them to overheat and dehydrate after only a few hours spent in the sun. Fortunately there is a guard against this that extends past just sunscreen. Keeping a quick read ear thermometer on hand will give you peace of mind at any point in the long summer season, making sure the heat isn’t causing harm or discomfort.
Safety in the water
Summer fun is synonymous with swimming in the pool and the ocean. Is there anything better than taking a dive into that clear water on those hot, hot days? A fun pastime for most, but for parents it can be a daunting idea to have one or a couple of little ones in the water. This fear can be easily squashed, by sticking to a swim training regime with your little one. This can take place year round, and will give your children water confidence early on in their life. Some parents start as early as four weeks old, with the idea of having them swimming on their own by aged four.
Enjoy everything summer has to offer, having complete confidence that your children are safe all season.
