Rest on the sea with a small child
Where to go?
Very little children (up to a year) do notto take out to the beach or watch, so that the kids stay in the shadows all the time. The fact that the babies do not yet have their own protection against ultraviolet radiation - the pigment of melanin, which is responsible for sunburn. It is produced very poorly and is fully formed only by three years. Of course, with a small child it's better to rest in the middle lane. But if you really want and the child is already 3 years old, you can go to the south. Only not on a week trip! The children's organism is painfully endured by climate change, and at least the first five days will go to adaptation. Therefore, any doctor recommends that you go with your child on a trip for at least a month. Wherever you relax - outside the city or at a seaside resort - observe the rules of sunbathing, so that the baby comes back rested and strengthened. Leave in the sun only until 11 am and after 5 pm, use sunscreen, do not forget about panama.
What to wear?
As the theater begins with a hanger, and rest - withfees. The main thing - do not go to extremes. Do not take a lot of clothes with you, especially if you are going to stay on the beach for long. Just grab a change of clothes and a clean t-shirt, a warm jacket or jacket in case of rain, a panama with a visor or a kerchief and children's sunglasses. You can also take light slippers to prevent the child from burning on the hot sand, although practice shows that children like to walk barefoot. Children under 6-7 years of age need not wear swimming trunks or swimsuits. It is better, if the kid runs on the beach and bathes naked. Wet panties can cause colds and even cystitis, an indoor swimsuit in girls sometimes provokes bronchitis. In addition, during the games, sand and small pebbles are stuffed under swimsuits and irritations and wounds appear on the delicate baby skin, which is especially dangerous and unpleasant for girls. If your child has very sensitive skin, wear a light long t-shirt that will protect the shoulders, ass and tummy while the baby plays on the floor. But what if you are not a supporter of the "little naked pop" or is your little daughter insisting on a swimsuit to be "as big"? In this case, take with you two swimsuits or two pairs of swimming trunks and change your child every time he comes out of the water. By the time the baby is going to dip for the second time, the first set will have time to dry up. And, of course, you have to make sure that the baby does not get wet before the time.
How not to scorch?
It is better to buy a special baby sunscreenmeans (now they are produced by many brands), especially if you go to the beach for the first time and do not yet know how the skin of your baby reacts to the sun. Children's products are designed specifically for the delicate and sensitive skin of the child, they always have high SPF, and they are less likely to cause allergies. Remember: the sun does not interfere with healthy sunburn and "make-up" vitamin D, so do not be afraid to overdo it. In addition to the cream and panama, from the intense sun can protect clothing made from natural materials (unlike synthetics, natural fabrics let no more than 1% of the radiation pass). Therefore very sensitive to the sun the kid can be dressed in loose clothes from a natural material, for example, a clap.
How to swim?
Be as cautious as possible, even if the childalready completely independent. Issue the baby only in shallow water near the shore, arrange that you enter the water only together or only when you are near and ready to help. Try to choose a place where there are no sharp pebbles and pits on the bottom. If the baby is small, take it in your arms and dip into the water together. Try to stay as close to shore as possible, where the water is as warm as possible. If the child enters the water on his own, make sure that the water level is not bigger for the baby than for the chest. If your baby does not know how to stay on the water, take a special circle, inflatable sleeves or a children's mattress - the baby will be more fun, and you are calmer. It is best during a stay in the water to engage in mobile games that will help the child to feel the water with all its joys, pleasures and dangers. For example, move together along the shore, helping yourself to movements! hands, jump and run in the water, do the "waves" with your hands. Let the baby under your control sink to the bottom and slowly float to the surface, straightening your arms and legs, letting bubbles drop your head into the water, try to swim with inflatable armlets (reduce the amount of air as the child begins to stand more confidently on the water). On a hot day, dip every half hour or so to avoid overheating, and make sure that the baby moves from time to time in the shade. If you rest on the sea, do not forget to wash off salt water after each bath. Otherwise, the skin may dry up and cause a lot of trouble.
What to eat?
If you are going to stay on the beach all day(by the way, do you remember that from 11 to 16 hours you need to stay in the shade?), then for sure you want to have a snack. Do not use the services of beach cafes and all the more do not buy baby patties that are offered by local grandmothers. In the heat, food quickly deteriorates, besides, you can not be sure of their quality. It is better to collect the "food basket" in advance. Put the tomatoes and cucumbers in it (there is a lot of liquid in them, and they do not create gravity in the stomach), carrots, it contains beta-carotene, which helps to resist the sun. In addition, children so love to crunch it, apricots, apples and other sweet fruits and dried fruits. Strawberries, currants, blueberries are also good in the heat. Do not forget to wash vegetables, fruits and berries beforehand - on the beach you will not have the opportunity to do it. If your youngster shows a healthy appetite, grab the buns without fillers, cookies or bread. But sandwiches with sausage, sausages and all sorts of semi-finished meat are best left at home - in the heat they can deteriorate and cause serious food poisoning.
How not to get bored?
For any child, the beach is, first of alla huge sandbox. Be sure to bring molds and sovochek - let the baby builds locks of sand. Look for interesting stones together, paint on the sand, play ball. Try to use the rest time to expand the knowledge of your baby: tell us why the sea is salty water, and in the river is fresh, why the broken glass pieces become smooth, and the color of the water at the shore is one, and the depth of the other. Tell us about animals and plants living in water. Collect a collection of pebbles and shells - you will be pleased to get it in the winter and remember together about the beach.
