Sun Safety For Children

Sun safety for children is high on every parent’s agenda when the sun comes out.  This summer has been amazing so far. Lots of sunshine and dry weather and plenty of opportunities for the little ones to be out in the fresh air. However as parents it’s drummed into us that we should protect our children’s skin from the ‘dangerous’ sun rays.

Of course we also need to think about keeping the children hydrated and cool too. So with this in mind we need to always think three important things!

  1. Cover all visible skin with high factor suncream, ideally SPF50
  2. Dress the kids in cool organic cotton clothes
  3. Pop a cool cotton sun hat on them

Young babies and children are particularly vulnerable in the summer and extra care needs to be taken with protecting them. Babies under 6 months should be kept out of the sun whenever possible, and older babies and children should be allowed in the sun for a limited time and only when they are well protected.

  • Apply a minimum of Factor 30+ sunscream, Anything below SPF30 does not really give adequate protection. To be honest even adults should never go below a factor 15 and children ideally Factor 30+. Apply the suncream 15-30 minutes before they go out and try to use waterproof sun cream, especially when they are playing in swimming pools or the sea.
  • Even during term-time, remember that children are outside at school for break and lunch times. Look at buying the 10 hour protection creams and putting it on the children before school. A lot of schools allow the children to take sun-creams in but the staff are not allowed to apply it on the children.
  • Encourage your children to wear a hat and cover up. Loose organic cotton clothes are the most comfortable. The sun can still penetrate thin clothing, so ensure you cream them all over.
  • Don’t be tempted to buy cheap sunglasses for the children. We all know that children easily lose and break sunglasses but cheap ones can do more harm than good.
  • Use the shade as much as possible, especially for babies. Under trees and sun umbrellas are perfect for children to play under.

Sun Safety for Children

A survey revealed that:

  • 83% of British parents don’t think it’s necessary to apply any sun protection to their children in the summer months before going to school.
  • Over half of parents don’t give their child a bottle of sun protection before they go to school during the summer.
  • A staggering 19% of mums and dads say their children do NOT have a shaded area in their school playground.
  • 37% of parents buy lower than an SPF30 for their children.

Sun Safety Facts

  • babies burn faster than children or adults
  • you can burn in the shade from reflected light
  • a wet cotton t-shirt lets through nearly as much sun as no shirt
  • don’t wait till you feel hot, 10am sun burns as much as 2pm sun
  • always re-apply suncream after swimming even if waterproof
  • apply sun cream at least every two hours
  • cloudy days are dangerous- a lot of UV still gets through cloud
  • watch out for cool winds or water, it can make you think you are not getting burnt

TIPS

  • plan your trips to avoid being in the heat of the day 10-2pm
  • have picnics in the shade and play in the shade
  • enjoy the woods
  • encourage the children to wear hats and long sleeved t-shirts
  • give children regular drinks of water or fruit juice to keep them hydrated.

I hope you don’t feel like I’m lecturing you here. Sun safety is so important though and with skin cancer rates rocketing year on year, we must remember to protect our babies and children.

Top Sustainable Clothing Videos

Organic clothes baby

As a new parent trying to learn about what’s best for your baby when it comes to clothes, it’s pretty easy to work out quickly that organic baby clothes are best!

Organic clothes baby are better when it comes to baby skincare and obviously better when it comes to the environment. Buying organic is a real no-brainer when you come to think about it.

I’ve been having a look at YouTube to find the best videos for new parents.  Hopefully you can have a look and see why sustainable clothing is better for everyone. From FairTrade baby clothes to bamboo babygrows and other organic cotton kids clothes, there’s information about all things organic on YouTube.

I particularly like the video telling you five fab facts about organic cotton.  There’s something about hearing the words being spoken which helps the information to stick in your brain more readily.

The Sustainable Cotton Movement have many great videos and the one explaining why organic cotton matters, is an interesting watch too.

Eco friendly fashion for children is very much on the rise for all sorts of reasons.  The video below explains why and is also worth watching.

The fashion designer Stella McCartney is a firm believer in sustainable clothing.  Brought up a vegetarian, she has always believed that her clothes should be ‘answerable’.  The true cost of clothes is important to her. It’s not just about where she sources her materials but also about the people who harvest the cotton and make the clothes. As Meghan, the new Duchess of Sussex found.

The images of Meghan and Prince Harry getting in to their blue Aston Martin with her wearing her new Stella McCartney evening wedding dress is already an iconic image from the day of their historic wedding.

Cheap fashion is having a massive negative impact on our planet and we all need to work together to try and combat this.  When you become a parent for the first time, is as good a time as any to start thinking about sustainable clothing. Start small by buying organic cotton baby clothes from an ethical retailer like Tilly & Jasper or the many other online organic baby clothes sites.

Think twice about buying cheap and cheerful ‘disposable’ clothes and consider how the companies sell such cheap clothes.

For a bit of fun, have a look at how this family have taken sustainable parenting to a real extreme!

The Benefits of Organic Cotton Baby Clothes Products

There are a number of reasons to choose organic baby products for your infant. While synthetic baby products may, in some cases, be less expensive, organic products provide a safer and more natural product for your baby. Organic cotton baby clothes do not contain the chemicals or pesticide residues that conventional products contain, making them the more reliable choice for natural baby care.

Organic cotton baby clothes

One of the most important products for your child will be their clothes. Organic cotton baby clothes are made from organic and natural components that contain none of the chemicals or pesticides of standard conventional clothing for infants. Organic cotton baby clothes are traditionally made using organic cotton, which faces none of the chemical treatment aspects that conventional cotton products experience on their way from the field to the factory.

Organic cotton baby clothes are rather affordable, too. They are also significantly more comfortable than conventional cotton products because there are less itchy fibers and unnatural components to the clothes. Organic cotton baby clothes are created with fair trade laws and are environmentally friendly, so parents can feel good about spending money on natural baby products and can be assured that their dollars are being spent in responsible, fairways.

Organic Skin Care

Along with organic cotton baby clothes, skin care products are among the most important organic baby products for your child. Because you don’t want any harsh chemicals or additives around your baby’s skin, organic skin care products for your baby are the only logical choice. With a wide variety of products available for a variety of skin care types, you can rest assured that organic skin care products for your little one have only the best in mind.

It is true that many of the chemicals in the marketplace have never been tested properly for problems relating to human skin. With animal testing and other sorts of harmful, problematic testing options occurring, it is hard to trust products that do not contain all-natural ingredients. Organic skin care for your baby puts the trust back in the purchasing and allows the consumer to make educated choices so as to know what the ingredients are and be assured that they are chemical-free.

Chemicals are everywhere, but organic cotton baby clothes offer a much-needed respite from the problems of chemical reactions. With chemicals in the air, water, soil, and just about every substance on earth, it’s nice to know that there are companies that still care about the environment and your baby’s health. Choose companies that put your child’s health and welfare before profits.

Safe Toys

Buying safe toys for your child can be complicated, especially with so many products on the market vying for your child’s attention. Reject current market trends and purchase safe, wooden toys and chemical-free books instead. This will allow your baby to experience growing up the right way and will provide hours of entertainment with none of the safety of health concern. As most toys are coated with plastic and chemical products, it’s nice to have safe wooden products that are free from pesticides and harmful components. Choose your child’s safety first.

Best Advice I Had Before My First Baby

Best Advice I Had Before My First Baby

Exciting times! You’ve told everyone you’re pregnant.  Now everywhere you go, some well-meaning soul or other will be giving you nuggets of advice. Buy organic baby clothes. Use a bamboo swaddle. Breast is best. Don’t buy a dummy…. Etc. Etc. Ignore the lot of them, I say!

One of the best pieces of advice I was given before I had my first baby was to relax and enjoy the baby and not to worry about stupid things like housework. The house will be there in 3 months’ time but you can never get back the time spent with a newborn baby. They grow so quickly. Before you know it, it’ll be their first birthday!

Best Pregnancy Advice

Here’s some of the best and most useful advice I was given before and after the birth.

  • I think one of my best pieces of advice was to sleep when baby sleeps. So if during the day your baby has a nap, you should have a nap too. The first few months can be tiring for a new mum.
  • Another useful suggestion was to accept help after the baby was born. I think pride gets in the way sometimes but you really do need all the help you can get in those first few weeks, whilst you are getting used to being a Mum.
  • Also, always go with your instincts. No one knows a child better than their mother.
  • Take everything other mums say with a pinch of salt! When another mum goes on about their baby (who’s the same age as yours sleeping through) – just ignore them as its normally a lie. All babies are different too so don’t compare your baby with others!
  • Invest in a good buggy!
  • Definitely do your food shopping online! Wandering around supermarkets with a baby whilst “tender” is not a good idea!
  • Do a lot of cooking and freeze in batches before the birth. Then you’ve always got a meal ready for the first few weeks after the baby arrives.
  • Don’t be afraid to say no. People obviously want to visit, but if you’re too tired to see them then just tell them no!
  • Don’t try to be Supermum or Superhuman. Your body cannot take it: like it or not it’ll take a while for your body to get back to normal…
  • Don’t try and get back in your pre-pregnancy clothes straight away and give your body chance to get over the birth.
  • Pack a dark coloured towel for the shower/ bath after the birth and buy some comfy baby pyjamas because you probably won’t be wearing anything else for the first couple of weeks
  • Use cheap sanitary towels after the birth, the ‘Always’ and ‘Ultra’ type draw moisture away and make any stitches pull – the cheaper the better, even if they do feel like bricks in your knickers

This is one of the best times of your life so don’t stress the small stuff!  Enjoy!
