The weather condition is very extreme these days globally and in Nigeria its an exception with extreme heat condition in the last two months ..
The most important thing is to keep hydrated… the entire family… kids and parents… carry your bottle of water everywhere and take intermittently dont wait till you are thirsty … ensure young children drink often as well.
Keeping cool. Dress babies and young children in light, loose clothing (singlet and nappy, loose top). Regularly sponge down with lukewarm water (tepid water), or try a lukewarm bath. Cool or cold water should not be used – babies and children start shivering and usually crying and this causes their temperature to rise .
Heat rash is common at this time so keep a prickly heat powder handy and use appropriately. Also get a rechargeable fan, mobile and stationary for the house. What do you think about the videos below? Great way to chill in hot weather:
