Playtime is fun not only for your baby but also for the entire family. Cause when the baby is having fun, is happy and gurgling, there is feeling of joy in the entire house. Here are some tips to make your baby’s playtime Soft and Safe!
Place Your Feeding Pillow Around Your Baby
If your baby has just learnt to sit, the feeding pillow works amazingly well to protect your baby from all three sides. Or else, use cushions and a soft playmat to ensure your baby does not hurt himself.
Select Toys Carefully
Ensure that the toys that you give your baby have no sharp edges, which can hurt your child. Also ensure that you don’t give them toys that are too small as these can be a choking hazard for your baby.
Carefully Baby-Proof Your House
Cover all sharp edges with corner guards to ensure that your little one does not crawl into or walk-into anything that can hurt him. Baby’s are still figuring their balance and hence will fall and bump into things a lot more than you can imagine. Also block all dangerous areas like stairways to ensure that they are safe and put away all your artifacts at a high level as soon as your baby gets mobile.
Playing in a Playpen
Do not leave your baby un-attended when in their play-pen. Also ensure that the play-pen is sturdy and the net is not torn from any place. This can lead to buttons from your baby’s clothes getting stuck which could cause an accident.
Ensure that toys have no loose batteries as this can be a major choking hazard to your baby.
Restrict Water Play
Do not allow your baby to play too long in the water as it dries-up your baby’s skin. Apply moisturizer on them after water-time.
Always Use a Sunscreen
For babies 6 months+ always use a sunscreen while playing outdoors.
Check The Temperature of Swings and Slides
On sunny days, the surface of playing equipment can become too hot for your baby’s soft skin, hence check the temperature before placing your baby on them.
Ensure that your Baby’s Clothes are Not Hanging Out
Baby’s clothes and loose accessories can get stuck in swings and slides and hurt your child. So ensure that their clothes are well tucked-in.
Protect You Baby From Mosquito Bites
This is one of the biggest hazards to your baby’s health and skin while playing outdoors. So ensure that you dress your baby in comfortable-covered clothes and use a mosquito patch to protect them from mosquitoes.
Keep First-Aid Handy
Baby’s are prone to falling and getting small hurts, so always ensure that your basic first-aid is always handy.
