Summer has already begun. Across the country, children went on vacation, the seasons of vacations, trips to the countryside and barbecue began. The weather outside pleases, newborns no longer need to be wrapped up, and older children are happy to disappear on the street themselves. Psychologists confirm the benefits of daily walks, but when is the best time to go outside with a child?
Why is it good to walk?
We have all heard that walking is good. Let us recall a little why it is so important for children to be on the street every day.
- Health. Walking will help strengthen the immunity and vision of the baby. And active games will be a good workout.
- Vitamin D. The sun is the main supplier of vitamin D, which is especially important for the development of babies of any age.
- New experience. Walking on the street, the child encounters new objects every day, acquiring a unique experience. You can’t get it if you stay at home.
- Mood. This is where serotonin or the “hormone of happiness” will help us. And a nice bonus will be new experiences every day.
The best hours for walking?
The weather in summer allows you to walk with your child all day. But there is a nuance. During active play in the summer, the child may overheat. To prevent this from happening, we advise you to walk in the morning before 11 am and in the evening after 4 pm. If the sun is “softer” and the temperature is lower, both the baby and the mother will be comfortable. The baby’s clothes should also be weather-appropriate, preferably made from light and natural materials.
What will mom wear?
Summer is the time for T‑shirts, shorts and open shoes. Natural materials and basic colors are well suited for walking with a baby. This summer Wish Woman prepared a collection of cotton t‑shirts oversized for every day in 4 colors: white, black, khaki and beige. There are sizes from 40 to 54. T‑shirts do not deform during washing and wearing, which will save mom’s time for long summer walks with the baby.
