Seasonal changes are a constant thing and so are the issues that crop up with it. Elders and children face most of the trouble as their bodies do not easily adapt to the changing temperatures. Knowing a few tricks could help in making it easier for babies and older adults to adapt to seasonal changes.
You Care, an organization started by a bunch of helpers, as we like to call ourselves, is based in Chandigarh and facilitates professionally trained home caregivers and families in need of caregivers or babysitters find each other. Not every family can afford to take care of the loved ones on their own. Caregivers help them balance their duties and requirements.
We provide comprehensive training to women and help them become certified caregivers, nurses, nannies, and babysitters. Our babysitters and nannies are women with children of their own and are experts in handling babies. With the summer season glaring, let us see a few tips about how to care for babies during this period.
Keep the child hydrated:
- Making sure children are well hydrated is important when the temperatures touch the sky. Always provide children with purified or mineral water and keep tabs to check that they are not dehydrated by the excessive heat.
Wear proper Clothes:
- Baby skin is delicate as compared to an adult’s skin. It gets bruised easily, and the material of the clothes they wear might cause rashes or itching due to sweating in summers. Cotton dresses with a loose fitting which are pleasant and light coloured are the best options.
Avoid rashes due to Heat:
- Also known as prickly heat, tiny red boils, and pinkish rashes appear on baby’s skin causing itchiness and irritation. Using a mild medicated soap and talcum powder, loose clothes and using diapers only when absolutely necessary will help reduce the rashes.
Keep Away the Bugs, Mosquitoes, and Allergies:
- Ensure that no insects or mosquitoes lurk in the house.
- Make sure that the air coolers or the ACs are well cleaned to avoid dust allergies.
