Remember, remember the 5th of November? While a firework display can be magical time for tots, there are safety precautions you need to take
Fireworks night is one of the best nights of the year for the whole family, as the night sky is lit up with incredible light displays.
And let’s not forget the chance to toast marshmallows on the bonfire. But while fireworks are amazing to watch they can be noisy and scary for young children.
To make sure your family’s night goes off with a bang, follow our expert tips for a safe night all round.
1) Lessen the noise
Your baby’s ears are super sensitive and the noise of the fireworks will probably be the loudest noise she’s ever heard.
If the fireworks are being set off in a small place such as a garden, keep her inside and let her watch from a window.
If you’re watching a display in a park then keep your baby’s ears protected (from both the sound and the cold) with a pair of earmuffs.
You can also buy baby earplugs, which are easy – and safe – to insert into your baby’s ears.
If you still think it’s too noisy, try watching the lights from inside your car with your baby to muffle the sound even more.
