Mommy Tips Monday

When it's HOT HOT HOT outside, the sun is relentless. So in light of all that, here's some tips and ideas about playtime outdoors in the sun and heat...

1. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. It is so important to monitor you little one's fluid intake - especially when it's so hot out! My doctor today suggested bringing pedialyte with me to our vacation last year since most of it was spent outdoors and my baby girl probably wasn't going to drink all the formula she needed while in the heat but would probably drink the pedialyte well.

2. SUNBLOCK! Can't have enough, can't apply it often enough! Also keep those little ones in the shade as much as possible. Wear hats and any protective clothes that make sense in the heat but also cover as much as possible.

3. Keep your eyes open and watch those babies! There's lots of hazards indoors and out for curious little babies and toddlers. Remember to always keep your eyes on them!


Hope these are some handy tips as you get ready to ramp up the summertime fun! Do you have any tips you'd like to share with others? Email me at MageeMommy at gmail dot com and I'll feature you and your website here!
