Great article! You forget about the hydration when you get busy! It makes me crazy, but I keep 2-3 full sippy cups of water around during summer. It is kind of a free for all for the little ones, but I know they get a drink even if I forget!

Wearing a lifejacket is very important whenever your child is in the pool, beach, river and such like. Most drowning accidents happen in swimming pools so if you're a pool owner it's important to have pool safety equipment and close your pool with pool cover when not in use.
