Tips and Tricks for keeping your family happy on those hot summer days
Thank you to all the mothers who shared their tips and tricks with us at the JOHNSON’S® Baby Beach Oasis in Sydney and Melbourne last month. We received so many useful pieces of advice to help keep your children cool and comfortable this summer.
In the spirit of sharing, below is a list of the top 10 tips to help all motherInc mums this summer! And remember – don’t forget to pack a bottle of JOHNSON’S® baby powder in your beach bag!
Carry cheap water spray bottles and make it fun to squirt each other and cool each other down.
Samantha Young, VIC
Frozen watermelon slices are great to take to the beach to cool down little people!
Lynn Lang, NSW
On a hot day, put a baby sheet and wrap in a bag in the freezer until cool then wrap the baby before a nap, for a relaxed, cool sleep.
Kate McDonnell, NSW
Pour lite custard and pureed berries into ice-pop holders and freeze for a delicious summer treat
Abigail Isacowitz, NSW
Teach your kids to swim from a young age and make putting on sunscreen a part of their daily routine.
Rebecca Atlas, VIC
Put suntan lotion on half an hour before you go out. I also make a rule - if you go outside you have hat on. No hat no outside!
Tanya Cominotto, VIC
Spray each other with a bottle of cold water.
Alison Walsh, VIC
We have an umbrella over a paddle pool in the backyard, and fill it with balls as well. My son loves it.
Sara Konyari, NSW
Keep sunscreen in the cooler bag.
Pitch a sun tent to keep baby busy and shaded from the sun.

JOHNSON’S® baby powder - Keeps skin feeling soft, fresh and comfortable.
It's a classic. JOHNSON’S® baby powder works by soaking up the moisture on your skin, making sand easy to dust off, leaving you and your family clean, comfortable and sand free all summer long. It also helps to eliminate friction while keeping skin cool and comfortable. It's made of millions of tiny slippery plates that glide over each other to help reduce the irritation.
