 Sun Safety

Here are a few tips for keeping your children safe in the sun: Keep babies under 6 months in the shade as much as possible. Keep older children safe by following the SunSmart Code. Take care whether you are in Ireland or abroad - UV damage from Irish weather is just as harmful as that from warmer climates.

Safe Sleep for Babies

It is not safe to place a baby on their side to sleep because they may roll onto their tummy. Babies who sleep on their tummies have a higher risk of cot death. Always lay a baby to sleep on their back, with their feet to the foot of the cot.

To learn more about safe sleep positions for babies follow this link: www.mychild.ie

Keep Active

You can help your children or any children you look after to be active. Children whose parents or guardians are active are more than 5 times as likely to stay active.
