Top Tips For Keeping Your Baba Healthy on Holiday

Holidays are a wonderful time for little ones to explore, learn, and have fun.

Ensuring they stay healthy in a new climate allows them to enjoy every moment and make long-lasting memories. 

Healthy Eating

While it's tempting to indulge in holiday treats, balance them with healthier options to avoid sugar highs and crashes. Bring along healthy snacks like fruits, nuts, and yogurt to keep them fuelled with essential nutrients.

Incorporate hydrating foods such fruits and veggies with high water content like watermelon, cucumbers, and oranges to keep them hydrated and refreshed. 

Skin Protection

Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30, and reapplying every two hours, or after swimming and sweating is crucial to protect your little ones skin from the sun. Don’t forget areas like ears, the back of the neck, and the tops of feet!

Encourage children to play in shaded areas, especially during peak sun hours (10 AM to 4 PM). Use umbrellas, trees, or canopies to create shade when outdoors.

Proper Rest

Try to keep to regular sleep schedules as much as possible, even while on holiday, to ensure they get enough rest. Bring familiar items from home, like their favourite blanket or stuffed animal, to help them feel comfortable and sleep better.

For homesick Baba's, try Baba West Sleep Mist for children to help ease them to sleep. Simply spritz our calming blend of Lavender and Frankincense oils soothing sleep spray at an arm’s length onto bedding, pyjamas, or a muslin cloth and allow to dry before putting your little one to bed.
