Safety … honey I burnt the kids

​We’ve all had too much sun on more than one occasion.  Sometimes,even with sunblock, UV swimsuits and umbrellas our little ones manage to get sunburnt. 
Should your baby incur a nasty dose of sunburn,try not to touch the skin. Sunburn at the best of times is nasty and painful, even more so for gentle skin.

The best way to treat baby’s sun burn is to remove all clothing and apply an after sun cream specifically designed for babies. Your chemist should be able to point out the right one for you to use.

Keep baby well hydrated and indoors.

In severe cases of sun burn,take baby to the Dr immediately. Severe sunburn can lead to dehydration,heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
