#1 Warmiebabes Suit

An important matter to note before taking your child for a fun day out at the pool is that your child’s body cannot retain their body heat.

The suit is also chlorine-resistant and has UV protection! Get this Warmiebabes Suit on Babydash’s website by clicking here.

A cute outfit is not complete without a bucket hat! Keep your child protected from the UV rays in this reversible sun hat from Cheekaaboo.

Easy Ways to Build Water Confidence With Your Little One

I know water can be terrifying for us parents to introduce to our little one. As parents, we should play an active role in encouraging our children to explore something foreign and let them be an adventurer. With the right method and close supervision, they will enjoy their time being in the water! Here are some easy ways I have gathered to help you build water confidence with your little babes.

It is not essential to take your little one to the swimming pool right away. It could also make them feel nervous to see so much water! Hence, the first easy step is to start at home by familiarising your baby with water by conducting fun bath-time activities. Get your baby some bath toys to accompany them bathing. Get this Playgro Floating Sea Friends on Babydash by clicking here.

If you decide to take them out to the pool, be sure to choose a warm pool as babies, especially very young ones are not very good at maintaining their body heat! Always ensure you are equipped with a bathrobe or a towel to wrap them up so they are warm and snuggly when they are out of the water. Or you can first introduce them to a small pool at the comfort of your own home. Just click here to purchase this Whale Shade Pool from Intex on Babydash.

When your little one is more confident and comfortable being in the water, you may want to find the right buoyancy aid to encourage them to try more water confidence activities. The buoyancy aid can help your child to learn how to use their arms and legs to move them along in the water. Get a cute pair of arm floaties from Cheekaaboo on Babydash – just click here.

Also parents, one important matter to note is that to take it slow and do not be pushy. I know sometimes we tend to be impatient when our child does not show any signs of progress but it is important to keep in mind that our child does not built the same as others. Some child are brave, some are a bit cautious. Do not rush them but instead follow your child and keep supporting them at their own pace.

Lastly, just enjoy spending the time together in the water! Swimming is one of the activities that the whole family can take part in together. It is a wonderful way to enjoy each other’s company. Swimming together with a child can develop their water confidence better when they see that everyone is having a good time in the pool.

There you go, folks! These are the easy ways to help build water confidence with your child. It takes a little patience, close supervision, and understanding that your child is not the same as others. Celebrate small wins even it is just them dipping their toes for the first time in the pool!

And great news, Moms & Dads! Cheekaaboo is having an amazing deal on Babydash. Spend a minimum amount of RM79 on Cheekaaboo products to get a colour-changing croco bath book for FREE! Click here to check out the deal.

Bedtime Ritual To Help Baby Sleep Better At Night

We know how normally babies don’t sleep through the night and it is sometimes will take a toll on parents! It is not a perfect process and it is all about trying new things and see which is best for your baby. Here I gather
5 bedtime rituals to help you (especially if you are a new parent!) get through the process.

#1 Give your baby a warm bath, then give them a massage

Bathtime is a great way to start your baby’s pre-sleep ritual. Warm bath especially will help your baby to feel more relaxed before bed. Giving them a gentle body rub or massage after a bath will help promote good blood circulation, hence your baby will sleep better. It is also an amazing way to make your baby feels secure and loved! Get one from Badger for your baby on Babydash by clicking here.

#2 Swaddle your baby to keep them warm and snuggly

Babies are used to warm temperature ever since they were in the womb. To provide the warmth for your baby, it is best to swaddle them up for bed so they would feel warm and snuggly so they can have a good night’s sleep. But remember not to swaddle too tight as it might put your baby’s health at risk! Purchase one set from aden+anais on Babydash’s website by clicking here.

#3 Offer your baby a feed to ensure they sleep comfortably with a full tummy

To ensure your baby get an uninterrupted sleep at night (hopefully!), try offering them a feed before bed so their tummy is full and can sleep peacefully and comfortably without having to wake them up in the middle of the night for a feed!

#4 Darken the room and keep the ambience calm and cozy

Get your baby to feel relaxed by dimming the light of the room. This would make them feel sleepy and fall asleep eventually. It is also important to make sure your baby sleeps in a calm and cozy ambience. To get you achieve that, you can place an aromatic diffuser to create a spa-like atmosphere. Get one from Crane here on Babydash.

#5 Place your baby in their cot and turn on a lullaby

Lastly, place your baby in their cot and put on a white noise or a lullaby (or parents can sing the lullaby too!). This will encourage your baby to fall asleep on their own. If you don’t want to sing the lullaby, you can purchase this portable baby soother from Skip Hop on Babydash by clicking here.

There you go, folks! I would like you to note that these tips might or might not be working on your baby as each baby has different needs. But hey, there is no harm in trying!
