Welcoming Spring: Tips for You and Your Baby to Enjoy the Season

Posted in

As the last chilly traces of winter recede, and the birds begin to chirp in the emerging sunlight, there's a palpable sense of renewal in the air. Spring is finally here! 

The changing of the weather brings a plethora of changes for your baby as well. So with a fresh season on the horizon, it's a good time to refresh your knowledge on how to ensure your baby's comfort, safety, and play during this beautiful time of year. 


Dress for the Weather

Spring weather can be so unpredictable, with breezy mornings turning into sunny afternoons and vice versa. Therefore, dress your baby in layers that can easily be added or removed to adapt to the changing temperatures. Opt for soft, breathable onesies and outfits to keep them comfortable throughout the day.


Sun Protection

Oh, the glorious sun! Soaking up all that good sunshine sounds dreamy, yet it’s important to protect your baby's delicate skin. Use a gentle sunscreen with a high SPF and give your baby added coverage with a wide-brimmed hat, a cute pair of shades, and a sun canopy when spending time outdoors. 

Remember to seek shade during the peak hours of sunshine.


The Great Outdoors

Springtime is the perfect opportunity to introduce your little one to the wonders of nature. It’s warm enough to enjoy outdoor activities, sans the intensity of scorching summer heat. 

So, put your baby in the stroller and get going! 

The CYBEX AVI Jogging Stroller is lightweight and perfect for hitting the streets or running on leafy park trails. 

Planning a longer walk and want your baby to enjoy the view without feeling cooped up or restricted? The Wonderfold Wagon is a great option for keeping your tiny tyke contained yet free.

Savor the sunshine all the way by having a family picnic under the shade of a tree, or simply lying with your baby on a blanket over the grass to watch the clouds drift by. 

And being that April showers means the sky can send some drizzles your way, stash a raincover in your stroller basket whenever you’re walking in iffy weather conditions.


All Fun and Games in the Open Air

The best play area is nature’s playground! Set up a safe outdoor playscape in your backyard or head to the local park and watch as your baby becomes a little nature aficionado. 

Have fun with age-appropriate toys, balls, or kites, and engage your baby in sensory activities like playing with sand and grass.

Toddlers love to zip around on the Micro Kickboard scooters. 


Water, Water, Water

Warmer temperatures mean an increased risk of dehydration, especially for infants. A long nap in the stroller can also make a baby quite sweaty. Be sure your little one stays well-hydrated by offering frequent feedings and drinks from a sippy cup.

If your baby has started solids, incorporate seasonal fruits and veggies that are hydrating into their diet, such as watermelon or cucumber.


Allergy Awareness

Along with blooming flowers and cherry blossoms, spring weather brings an increase in airborne allergens such as pollen and mold, which can trigger allergies in both adults and babies. 

Keep an eye out for common allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itching, or watery eyes. Consult with your pediatrician if you suspect your baby is experiencing seasonal allergies.

To minimize exposure, keep your windows closed on high pollen days, use air purifiers indoors, and regularly clean your home to reduce allergen buildup.


Prepare to be Prepared

Arggg! The frustration of finally making it outdoors and having to run back home for a pacifier or tissue….

Maximize your time outside and minimize the homeruns! by being prepared with anything your baby may need.

Take along a diaper bag or backpack stocked with essentials like:

  • diapers
  • wipes 
  • snacks
  • bottles 
  • a change of clothes
  • a mini first aid kit. 

Having the basics on hand will extend the duration of your outings and make them stress-free and that much more enjoyable.

Spring into Action

With the right precautions and baby gear, you’ll be set to lap up all the goodness and bounty that spring has to offer.

Here's to a season filled with sun, fun, and laughter!
