With the summer months upon us, it's important to practice good child safety. First and for most NEVER leave a child in a car. Not even for a second. The internal temperature can rise to dangerous levels very quickly. Children have a difficult time regulating their own body temperature making just a few seconds in a hot car unbearable. This rule also applies to pets as well.
Water is super important. Children need to drink all day long. Keep water handy and accessible in sippy cups, baby bottles, or water bottles. For a cool product that easily turns a water bottle into a baby bottle click here.
There is no substitute for parental supervision at the pool. Accidents can happen quickly and drowning is silent. Many people think they will hear the child wailing around in the event of a drowning incident, but that is not the case. Drowning is mostly quiet and still. Never leave any child unattended at the pool and always be sure to use sunscreen.
Finally, be careful placing small children in hot car seats. The metal buckle can easily burn their sensitive skin. Hot air also becomes trapped behind them resulting in a potential overheated child and sweaty backs. A simple solution to this problem is with a car seat cooling device.
