How to Keep Your Child Safe in the Sun This Summer

Protecting the skin from the sun’s harmful rays is crucial at every age. Your pediatrician is likely to recommend that you keep your baby out of direct sun when he or she is less than six months old. Protect your baby’s skin by dressing him or her in loose, comfortable clothing that covers most of the body. Before going outdoors with your child, put a hat with at least a three-inch brim on his or her head.

Apply sunscreen to all of your child’s exposed skin before he or she goes outdoors. Your pediatrician can offer guidance on which type of sunscreen to choose for young children. In general, a kid’s doctor may recommend selecting broad-spectrum sunscreen, which protects against UVA and UVB rays. Choose sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15.

Understanding the Importance of Prenatal Checkups

Receiving prenatal care early in your pregnancy is crucial to support your health and your baby’s health. As soon as you learn you’re pregnant, you can call the doctor’s office to schedule your first visit. Generally, prenatal checkups are scheduled for about the eighth week of pregnancy. If you have health issues, unusual symptoms, or you’ve previously experienced problems with a pregnancy, your healthcare provider may urge you to schedule a prenatal visit sooner than this.

Diagnostic Tests
During prenatal checkups, your physician will conduct a physical exam, check your vital signs, and evaluate your weight. He or she will request a urine sample to confirm the pregnancy and check for signs of infection. You can also expect to have a Pap test, pelvic exam, and tests for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Your doctor may request a blood test to check for potential health issues, and he or she may do an ultrasound. Additionally, you can expect your doctor to thoroughly review your personal and family medical history, discuss previous pregnancies, and ask about previous surgeries. This thorough examination is necessary to evaluate the health of you and your child. Should any medical conditions pose a potential problem, your physician will provide guidance on managing them.

Patient Education
Another reason why prenatal checkups are critically important is that they offer your doctor a chance to review your lifestyle habits. You can expect questions regarding your alcohol consumption, physical activity level, drug use, tobacco use, and stress level. It’s important to be completely honest with your doctor; he or she is only concerned about the well-being of you and your baby. Your doctor can advise you about matters such as the amount of weight you may need to gain and the health hazards you’ll need to avoid, such as certain environmental toxins and dietary choices.
