Baby And Toddler – Playground Safety

Keeping your child healthy and safe is among your prime goals as a parent. So here are some tips to help you keep your precious infant happy and healthy.

Most playground equipment consists of swing sets, slides, money bars and an activity area. Regardless of if the structure is in the backyard or the park in the neighborhood, there are still some safety precautions that you should take into consideration.

Oh, Those Bugs! – Along with summer fun come summer insect bites. Be it mosquitoes, gnats, chiggers, ticks, bees, or wasps, these common culprits bite children and can make them miserable. Some insects are carriers of serious diseases, so it is best to avoid the bites when possible. There are many safe and effective insect repellents that you can use to protect your child; check with your physician for brand names. Remember to only use products that are approved for children and wash off the repellent when you return indoors. Be aware that insect repellents do not protect against most stinging insects, such as wasps, bees, and fire ants.

Every child, even from a very early age, learns from the world around them. Toddlers and even infants are no exception. As a parent, you may find it difficult to locate a safe place for your little one to play outside. That is why many parents decide to invest in a backyard playset. The most important part about finding a kids playground set that is right for your young ones is selecting something that is age appropriate. For the wisest investment, try to find something that is adjustable as your child grows.

If your swing set has a slide make sure there are no splinters and if it is metal have it in the shade to prevent burns during the summer heat. If you have monkey bars’ or a rope ladder near the swing set pay special attention to having a cushion material under that area. A solid heavy climbing rope used to be a playground standard in many areas and is still a climbing exercise for kids of all sizes. Knots in it help younger children get the knack of climbing.

Playground safety tiles are specifically designed to offer maximum protection. They minimise the risk of slipping and tripping, and if a child falls, then they have a nice, cushioned surface to land on. You can pick up rubber safety tiles for a reasonable price and they are relatively easy to install. If you’re play area has any equipment where falling is an issue, such as a climbing frame or slide, then you should really think about installing playground safety tiles for complete protection.
