 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.

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.
