Keep Your Little One Cool this Summer
It's been really hot here in the Philippines, and now that it's summer already, I think the heat tripled! No exaggeration at all!
|Summer is here! <3|
*look at Maco's look though. HAHAHA!
And with the heat, my problem is my little girl, and the kids/babies in general. It's hard for them esp. to the parents to see their kids so irritated by the heat or worse being sick, plus let's be real, it would be costly! And no one likes that! So I would like to share with you some tips~ on how to help your little one with today's heat. These may work for my little one, and may not work for your little one, though I really hope they do!
S U M M E R T I P S F O R Y O U R L I T T L E O N E
P O W D E RPowder your little one. I know some moms would say 'nahhh' and be moving their heads left and right too hard, because as we all know, it's not really advisable - BUT just those powders with Talc. So, if you're going to powder your little one, make sure it's Talc-free! And DON'T put a lot, please. We're not trying to bake our little ones! Heehee! Or if you're still a no-no for it, then you don't have to. ;)
OR just make sure - if you're baby's a tabachingching - that your little one's neck gets some air.
N A P P Y C R E A MNappy cream. Or Diaper Rash Cream. Or in our case, we use Drapolene cream. I put it on my little one just to prevent diaper rash. With today's heat, you never really know when your little one would have rashes when their singit-singit perspires.
P U T T H E M H A I R U P !If your little one has long hair, make sure to tie them up all the time! Well, this one is kind of a personal thing, but isn't it too icky when your nape is covered with your hair and sweat?! Ugh, just no. And your little one might get irritable by it!
If you're going to a swim, put sunblock on to your little one, and yourself, and to everyone else! And don't go to the pool between 11am-3pm! The sun at those times are just unbearable, we don't want to burn our skin - but having a tan is nice. Heehee ;) Get your tan before 11am and after 3pm!
W A T A A H H HWater. Of course! This is a must, even if it's not summer. Give your little one and yourself lots and lots of water today! We don't want to be dehydrated, do we?
C O L D R E F R E S H M E N T Z Z ZIce cream, halo-halo, fruit shakes - anything cold you could drink or eat for refreshment! ;)
Or better yet, if you don't want the hassle of being out and about. Let your family stay indoors and enjoy watching some good ol' Children movies like Matilda, turn the A/C on, and still, have some ice cream!
Now, enjoy your summer! ;)
