Day 117 - Gone Swimmin'

Today's Tip - Take extra protection from the sun when you take your baby to the pool

Took my son to the pool for the first time today with my friend Nick. Just like all guys, he didn't really like the 74 degree water when it got near his waist, but after awhile he was splashing and having some fun.

If you're going to take your kid to an outdoor pool, take some extra care with protecting your baby from the sun. The sun's rays bounce off the water and hit your skin with a double-UV-whammy. Put on plenty of waterproof sunblock, a hat and some baby sunglasses are a good idea too. Once you get out of the pool, have some pants and a lightweight long-sleeve shirt on hand to cover up your baby's sensitive skin.
