Given the rise in cases globally in the past few months of Covid-19, mothers can be expected to be feeling nervous about taking their under three-year-olds out and about.
With the older children now working on a hybrid model of education across the region, the need for removing the distraction of the younger siblings is paramount. Peace of Mind products has these tips to make your trips less stressful:
1. Planning trip timing
Avoiding busy times is easier when you have young children as they wake early, which fortunately (or unfortunately for your shut eye) allows you to go out when the restaurants, stores and supermarkets are less busy. In the weekdays, these locations are not too crowded before 3pm, where as in the weekend pre 1pm is the best time to be out and about – leaving your afternoons for time by the pool or playdates with friends.
2. Dining outside
When dining, especially when the weather is not too hot, outside spaces are recommended. They allow for better air circulation and in most places allow for the table to be a little bit further apart from other diners.
3. Back to school family protection
With your older children going to school each day, you need to ensure they get into the habit of sanitising when they arrive home. Have a bottle of sanitiser by the door or in your car if you are collecting them and ensure they clean their hands before touching the infants face. It is exciting for them to see their siblings so having a routine of sanitisation as they walk in the door ensures they are protecting their family as well
