Keep your baby safe in the sun!
Today is the warmest day of the year to date. We have had many patients asking how to keep their babies safe in the sun. It is important to remember that during hot weather, babies can fall very ill if affected by dehydration, sunburn or heatstroke. Babies under the age of 6 months should be kept out of direct sunlight. Their skin does not contain enough melanin to protect them from the sun. A sunscreen with SPF of 50 should be applied to your baby's skin regularly, especially if they are in a pool or in the sea. Where possible, ensure that your child wears a hat that has a wide brim to protect the head and neck from the sun. Ensure your child drinks plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration. As well as water you can give them sugar free diluted juice, home made fruit lollies etc to keep their fluid intake up. At night time, keep nightwear and bedding to a minimum. It may be worth considering using a single sheet that is well secured so that it will not cover their face or get tangled during the night. For any advice call in and ask a member of staff. Remember we are open from 9 am until 10 pm Mon-Fri as well as 9am-8pm Saturday and 9am - 6pm Sunday.

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
