With Canadians in the midst of another hot and humid summer, it’s important for parents to keep young children well hydrated. One way to do so is through the use of a sippy cup filled with water, breast milk, juice or formula. Sippy cups are extremely popular among Canadian moms. A recent survey by Playtex Infant showed that 88% of Canadian moms have children who have used a sippy cup. According to the survey, moms introduced their child to a sippy cup at varying ages with 44% of children trying a sippy cup for the first time at 10 months old.
Playtex Infant offers these top five tips, that I thought you would be interested in some tips on how to help keep baby cool and hydrated this summer:
- – If you’re feeling hot, chances are your baby is too, so be sure to dress for the weather. Cool cottons and linens are comfortable and let your skin breathe.
- The sun is the hottest from 11am to 3pm so avoid going outside at this time. If you do go out on a hot day, ensure your baby is shaded from the sun as best as possible.
- If you run out of water or it becomes too hot to enjoy, pop into a local cafe or restaurant and most will be more than happy to fill your sippy cup with cool water.
- If it’s a really hot day, try filling one of your sippy cups with ice. By the time your baby is thirsty, most of the ice will have melted, creating a cool and refreshing drink.
