These days, it seems like people celebrate with fireworks almost all year long. Birthdays, major holidays, baseball games, graduations - the list goes on and on. And while fireworks are enjoyable to watch and you may even enjoy setting them off on your own, things will probably change now that you have a baby.

For instance, those backyard displays may be fun, but experts recommend leaving the fireworks to the professionals for a variety of reasons, mostly safety related. After all, thousands of people are injured every year in at-home firework’s accidents. Beyond leaving the actual fuse-lighting to the professionals, try these tips to keep your firework’s viewing as enjoyable as possible, for every member of your family.

Protect your baby’s hearing

Your baby may love the bright colors of a firework’s display, but the loud noises can be frightening. HUSH Baby Sleep Hats are a great way to protect your child’s sensitive ears, so he or she can enjoy the lights without being distracted by those loud, frightening bangs.

View from a distance

If you can, consider viewing the display from a distance. While many families enjoy being up close to large displays, those with very young children often find being a mile or so away allows for a good view without some of the shockingly, bright lights or loud noises that can cause fear.

Have a backup plan

No matter how well you plan, you really can’t predict how your baby will react during a firework’s display. You may find out that she loves it. Or you may find out that you need to watch from the car, or the house because he’s upset. But adjusting is just part of life with a baby, isn’t it?

With a little planning and forethought - and a HUSH Hat - every member of your family can enjoy a firework’s display, no matter the occasion!

Flying with a Child on your Lap

Flying with a Child on your Lap

  1. Pick flight times when you know you and your baby will do best on.
  2. Only bring things that are absolutely necessary and check your baggage so you have less to drag around. Be sure to check beforehand what your airlines allow you to check or bring (strollers, car seats, etc.)
  3. Be ready for Security check. Rules are always changing so make sure to read the most recent TSA rules and be prepared. If they are available use the TSA family lines.
  4. Let the TSA people know what your liquids and baby food are. You can take all the formula, milk, and even water bottles to make your formula.
  5. Carry on your most important items (diapers, formula, food) and even bring extra. You never know if you will have an unexpected layover or if your luggage will be lost.
  6. Dress your baby appropriately. Layers that are easy to take off.
  7. Wear comfortable and functional clothing to the airport.
  8. Bring a variety of toys and new toys your child has never played with before.
  9. Wear your baby. Your carrier doesn’t have to go on the security belt.
  10. Give your little one something to eat while you are taking off and landing because they don’t know how to pop their ears yet. A pacifier will work as well.
  11. When you get to your gate to check-in ask if there are two open seats anywhere on the plane. If there are bring your car seat on the plane with you.
  12. Get everything set up before you take off.  It’s easier to get stuff from the pocket of your seat, instead of a diaper bag by your feet, if you’re flying alone.
