Water Safety Tips for Kids

Summertime is the best time of the year for outdoors and swimming is the best pass time of the summer. It’s the time to buy some bathing suits, new floaties for a pool or beach umbrella. With all this, also think about the safety of your kids that how much you prepared your kids for pool or beach? Water can be dangerous for kids.

Association director of the Injury Prevention and Research Center stated that drowning in pools is the main cause of death for one to four years old kids while five years or older are more likely to drown in natural water resources like rivers, ponds etc.

Here are some water safety tips to make sure that your little one is safe in the water.

Watch out your child near the Water

It is important to keep eyes on kids when they are near the water. One can easily get distracted. It is important to make sure that kids are getting your full attention when they are in the pool that means not talking on phones for too long or trying to take a perfect selfie. There is nothing more important than your child.

Use of sunscreen

It is important to use the sunscreen or wear sunblock, especially for kids. The sun’s ultraviolet rays are powerful and sometimes causes skin cancer. Baby skin is soft and can be affected by ultraviolet to cause serious diseases. So it is important to take care of skin and use sunscreen.

Floaties and life vests

Make sure you have floaties on your kids and talk to your kids about their uses. Sometimes if they accidently fall in water these life vests prevent them from drowning.

Pop-up tent and umbrellas

With a tent or umbrella baby can take a nap under the umbrella or you can breastfeed in shade to stay cool. These tents or umbrella can also prevent your baby from sunlight. You can easily get these items from your local stores during the summer.

Baby hat

Hats are essential for kids. That will help to protect little scalp and tender eyes. It will help to protect your baby’s face from the sunlight. Sometimes your kids can lose their hats. Be sure you have an extra hat in hand.

Assign a guardian when you are away

You can assign a guardian when you can’t watch the kids. A mistake that many people make is thinking that other people are watching their kids. But it is important while leaving your kids, you can tell someone to watch your kids until you came back there. Don’t think that someone is going to keep their eyes on kids until you give them a responsibility.

Keep your babies safe and secure every summer. Keep eyes on your kids when they are in a pool or lake or even near the mall fountain. They will be safe when you are with them.

Many people put-off baby proofing because they do not have the time- there is absolutely no excuse for that. I have taken care of patients who have their babies fall down stairs, choke on door stoppers, and pull down furniture onto themselves. This can be prevented. And the service is very affordable- the only additional cost versus doing it yopurself is the labor cost.Thank you to Baby Safe Homes for providing an excellent service to me and my patients.

Hi all. I just wanted to let you know that we recently used Baby Safe Homes to childproof our house. More than a few friends referred us to this company and I can’t speak highly enough it. They came to our house for a consultation, made recommendations, and did immediate installation. He was very honest and didn’t pressure us to buy or install anything we didn’t feel we needed to. If you have an infant ready to crawl (as we do) I’d highly recommend Baby Safe Homes.

Thank you very much for making my house a safer place for my twin girls. You did a wonderful job! Everything works great, and I’m starting to appreciate all the devices even more as the girls get better at getting into things. I will certainly recommend Baby Safe Homes to all of my friends with kids and my patients.

Baby Safe Homes was an absolute pleasure to work with. I felt so overwhelmed by the process of babyproofing I procrastinated until my 8 month old was on the go. Within a few short days of my initial call Baby Safe Homes came out, gave me the guidance I needed, and proofed my entire house with top of the line products all within a 2 1/2 hour period. I can actually get more done now without constantly stopping to chase my son!

Thank you for helping us babyproof our new home. I loved that you gave us all the options and didn’t push anything on us and allowed us to pick what we felt was necessary. Also, I couldn’t believe how quick everything was finished. Within a few days of speaking with you, you came out and installed everything in just 2 hours! Our stair gates look and work great! I wish I had heard of you before and I will definitely recommend you to all of my family and friends. Thanks again.
