First 5: Is your child ready? Summer safety

By
From page B3 | June 02, 2014 |

First 5 FairIt’s almost summer. June is here and that means family outings including the El Dorado County Fair.

When packing the car for the fair or other summer outings, don’t forget a few items to keep your little ones safe from the sun:

Dress your baby in lightweight clothes with long sleeves and pants and wide-brimmed hats. If you cannot avoid the sun or find yourself without the right clothes, you can use a little sunscreen with at least 15 SPF to areas touched by the sun.

Babies are little and require water or other fluids more often to keep hydrated. Keep water bottles and other fluids on hand.

Recognizing that infants and toddlers can get overheated and dehydrated, First 5 El Dorado Children and Families Commission partnered with the El Dorado County Fairgrounds in bringing the Baby Corner to the Fairgrounds.

The Baby Corner is a space for families with young children to nurse, change diapers and tend to the needs of their children.

Through generous donations from the community, the Baby Corner is family friendly including books, toys and chairs in an air-conditioned room. The room has been stocked with sunscreen, baby wipes and access to water to ensure that babies can safely enjoy the fair and other local events.

The theme for this year’s El Dorado County Fair is Photos, Fathers and Fair running through Father’s Day weekend, June 12-15. Thursday, June 12 is kid’s day, offering free admission for children 12 and under. Children 6 and under are always free.

Kicking off the fair will be a 1K fun run for children 4 to 12 years of age hosted by the El Dorado County Superintendent of Schools, Jeremy M. Meyers. If you miss the fun run, be sure to stop by the Superintendent’s interactive booth for kids.

Join First 5 El Dorado in celebrating children and families at the fair.

For more information on summer safety, families can visit the AAP Website at healthychildren.org or contact the commission at 530-622-5787.
