COLD WEATHER TIPS:Includes this tip: Teach children to avoid touching cold metal with bare hands or licking extremely cold metal objects. Cold is transmitted more easily through metal and increases the risk of a cold injury, such as frostbite. Also, your child's tongue might stick to the cold metal and be difficult to remove.
Dress children appropriately for the weather conditions.
Remember C- O- L- D:
Cover your child's head, neck and face as much as possible since a lot of heat loss can occur in these areas. These areas are also at risk for frostbite. Apply lip protection.
Overexertion (being too active) can cause your child to sweat and chill more quickly. Sweating causes clothing to become damp and increases heat loss.
Layers of clothing will keep your child warm and protect your child best against wind and cold conditions.
Dry is key in preventing cold injury. Keeping your child dry with waterproof clothing reduces heat loss.
