Baby Safety Tips For Winter

Winters are the vacation time for kids. The cool temperature invites them outside for fun as they get a break from regular routines and with lack of discipline they consume a lot of junk food which causes infections. During winters, make sure your kids have enough protection against infections like flu, cold, etc. these are some common health issues.

Here are some tips that can help you to prevent infections and your child can enjoy the winter without visiting any doctor.

Keep the System Hydrated

In winters, kids tend to drink less water because of low temperature. Winter is a dry season so it is important for us to be adequately hydrated. To keep their skin hydrated you should make sure that they drink enough water. Try to give those fruits and fruit juice at room temperature. They would not cause any cold when they are consumed at room temperature.

Change the Regular Bathing Bar

The regular bathing soap can make skin drier. Instead of regular soaps, you can choose some milder soaps that can’t harm to your skin.

Massage Regularly with Body Oil

Kids have very soft skin that can be badly affected by the chilling winter winds. To protect the skin of kids you have to massage them with oils like olive oil or coconut oil which are enriched with fatty acids and vitamin E. After applying these you can rub it softly so that skin can soak it.

Reduce Bath Time

Make sure that kids take a bath in lukewarm water. Hot water can rob the natural moisture from the skin. As per expert’s recommendation make your kids bath routine at night time throughout the winter. It will help them to get ready for sleep. Also, reduce the bath time and always use lukewarm water instead of hot water.

Moisturize Baby Skin

During winter’s cold air, chilled wind and central heat all are working against the moisture of the skin. After bath routine, make sure you use a moisturizer on a baby. A moisturizer will provide healthy and soft skin for babies, even in winters.

Dress the Child Up in Layers

When it is cold outside, the easiest way to keep them warm is to dress them in several layers of clothing so that when they feel a bit hot they can easily take off the upper layer. If you see heat rashes from overheating treat them with low dose hydrocortisone for a few days. But remember, it is a medicine not a moisturizer so don’t use it for a long time.

Check the Diet

Check the diet of kids in winters. They need a balanced diet that has the required amount of essential nutrients. Having a variety of candies, pastries are fine, but also try to include green and crunchy vegetables in a kid’s diet.

Also, ensure that your kids get the required amount of workout daily. Add regular exercises and the afternoon game sessions in their daily routine. This will enhance their immune system to fight off the winter infections like common cold or flu.

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.
