Out and About Accessories

No matter whether visiting the local park, your favourite sandy beach, or even whilst adventuring on holiday, it's essential to make sure you, and your little one, are well equipped to handle the warmer weather. Pushchairs and Strollers often feature extendable visors and breathable linings that are specially designed to help keep your youngster feeling comfortable for longer as they're transported from A to B. Looking to stay prepared against all weather types? Raincovers are perfect for those unexpected downpours.


When it comes to UV protection, sunglasses are sure to be popular, whilst accessories such as the SnoozeShade are designed to be easily attached to most prams.


Caring for your little one when it comes to feeding time needn't be a chore either. Large feeding bottles are perfect for helping keep your baby fuller and hydrated for longer, whilst picnicware and storage coolers are sure to keep their favourite snacks and treats well-chilled whilst away from home.

Paddling Pools and Outdoor Playsets

An excellent way to help your little one cool down whilst outside enjoying the garden environment, inflatables are sure to provide hours of endless entertainment.


For those not yet fully acquainted with swimming, be sure to invest in some durable, supportive floats such as armbands.


Specially designed suncream is available for helping keep your little one's skin protected against harmful rays. It's important to keep their skin protected with SPF Factor 30 or higher, even whilst playing in the shade or the water. It's recommended that you apply lotion liberally before they head out into the sun, and then once again every 1 - 2 hours. Be sure to avoid direct exposure to the midday sun (between 11am and 3pm) and always seek shade wherever available.



Keeping Cool At Night

Making sure you choose the perfect bedding is an essential step to helping your baby, toddler, or young child sleep with ease during the warmer months. Breathable sheets and blankets made from cotton or linen are designed to keep them cool as they drift off to sleep.


Still struggling to find ways to reduce the temperature in their nursery or bedroom during Summer evenings? Leaving windows slightly ajar to create a flowing through-breeze is sure to help - or if you'd rather not leave them open during the night time, then why not leave them open during the run-up to bedtime to cool the air. Bringing bathtime forward to just before bedtime is another excellent way to help them cool down. Make sure you opt for a tepid water temperature and let them air dry whilst lying down to allow the water to evaporate from their skin.


If you're looking for a way to help monitor the temperature of their bedroom or even their next bath, then a thermometer is sure to help provide added peace of mind.
