Certain precautions should be taken in order to make the most of the fine weather, without going to the point of staying indoors throughout the summer, which is, of course, out of the question. Exposing kids under the age of 3 to the sun is not recommended, so think carefully about where your walk will take you, giving preference to shaded routes for sun protection.
You should also take into account the orientation of the sun according to the time of day: you can enjoy any location, you just need to avoid times of the day when the sun is at its highest, in particular between 12 midday and 4pm. Make the most of these moments to have lunch or take a nap, in the shade of course!
For parts of the baby's body without protection, don't hesitate to apply thick layers of sun cream and remember to reapply every two hours. Check that the packaging mentions "baby", double UVA/UVB protection and a factor of 50+.
It is preferable to use mineral sun creams that, despite the inconvenience of the white marks, minimise the risk of allergies (compared with chemical filters) and help you to visualise any areas which have been forgotten!
YOU ARE NOW READY TO MAKE THE MOST OF THE SUMMER IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT YOUR KIDS ARE NOT IN ANY DISCOMFORT WITH SUFFICIENT SUN PROTECTION!
