As the crisp autumn air rolls in across the UK, many parents may find themselves wondering how best to continue outdoor adventures with their little ones. With the right mindset and a few tips, getting outside with your baby can be a truly magical experience.
We have put together some top tips for a sensory experience when getting out with your baby this Autumn:
Protect your skin
As important as a factor 50 for your face is protecting your little one from the elements. Our ‘wrapped in love’ calming anti-pollution baby face cream will deeply hydrate, nourish, neutralise free radicals and provide an ultra-protective shield between innocent skin and harmful pollutants.
Autumn weather in the UK can be unpredictable, so plan for a variety of weather conditions. Dress your baby in layers so you can add or remove clothing as needed, and make sure they're protected with a hat and gloves if necessary. Remember to pack waterproofs and a rain cover just in case you need them.
Plan your route carefully and be mindful of the ground conditions. Consider whether you will be able to push a pram, or would a baby carrier be more appropriate. It is also worth remembering that the days are shorter, so think about the timings when you are planning your day. Setting off earlier in the day ensures you make the most of the sunshine and soak up all the Vitamin D that is great for your skin.
Autumn is a sensory experience for your baby. A chance to get tactile with textures and engage their senses in nature. Squishy mud, rough tree bark, and soft moss are all ideal for sensory play.
After a delightful walk with your little one, there's nothing quite like unwinding with a soothing bath. Our ‘bubbles in the breeze' top to toe wash and our ‘floating on clouds’ bedtime bath milk are perfect companions for your post-walk bath routine. These products include vitamin-rich aloe and cucumber fruit oil, which hydrates and soothes, whilst comforting extracts of oat kernel and meadowsweet calms irritation and relieves redness.
