Top tips to survive the fireworks with little ones.
Top Tips For Fireworks Displays
So we know that there were a few displays on Saturday but Sling and Meets local event is being held on Monday night so we thought we would share our 3 top tips for an enjoyable and safe Bonfire Night. (And let’s face it there will be displays from now till New Year!)
1. Toasty Toes.
This is all about clothing. It’s turning cold now so it’s time to start thinking about what to wear when babywearing in the cold. It’s all about layers and protecting the extremities like toes, arms and head.
Several thin layers means you are able to control your babies temperature by removing or adding. So avoid a snow suit over normal clothes think vest, T-shirt, jumper etc. This will not only be safer for baby but also give them more mobility in their joints.
ALWAYS REMEMBER THE CARRIER COUNTS AS A LAYER.
So include the carrier in layer count. A stretchy would be three layers, a buckle carrier one etc. Also remember your body heat effects your traveller.
Then add extra to arms, legs and head. Arm warmers, leg warmers, extra socks, warm shoes and a hat.
2. Keep them cuddled.
Ideally you want your little ones facing in. This way they have a safe space to hide from anything that becomes too overwhelming.
3. Banish the booms.
The whizz, pops and bangs can be overwhelming enough for us so protect your little ones with some ear defenders so they can enjoy the lovely light display without becoming too alarmed.
Have a fun and safe bonfire night. As always we are here to answer any questions you may have. Please get in touch.
