Coronavirus has been spreading across the globe at an exponential rate with the number of cases doubling in a matter of few days in some states. It is necessary to take all precautions to keep them safe during this pandemic. Here are some tips that will help you protect your toddler from coronavirus.
Practice hand hygiene
The most basic and effective way to keep the virus at bay is by washing your hands properly. Teach your toddlers to wash their hands for 20 seconds and the right way to do it. Ask them not to touch their nose, mouth, or face after coming home from outside.
Avoid shaking hands
Make sure your toddler does not shake hands with people they meet as it is not advisable under the given circumstances. It is best to maintain distance and greet others from afar until things get better.
Keep your children away from crowded places as coming in contact with unknown people can increase the risk of contracting the infection. Ask your children to stay at home and practice social distancing.
Keep your home clean
Make sure you clean the corners of your house well and especially in places where your toddlers play. Staircase railings, doorknobs, toys, etc should be cleaned regularly and wiped off with a disinfectant.
Eating healthy will keep them fit and increase their immunity too.
Keep Them Busy
As its lock down and kids cant go out so try to keep them entertained else they will get restless and cranky.
Here are some tips to keep your toddlers safe. Remember to take care of your hygiene as well since kids imitate their parents.
