Children love to swim, and anywhere there is water there will be children playing and splashing. But what is important to consider when being around water with children? We spoke to a swimming instructor and got some ideas for swimming techniques, safe swimming and safety. Why is it so important for children to learn to swim? Swimming ability is important since it enables people to take care of themselves in the water. The importance of swimming readiness and ability must not be underestimated. There have been cases of children drowning in garden pools. Involuntarily ending up under water can be very stressful if you do not know how to swim or are unaccustomed to being in the water. Can I teach my child to swim …

Not for girls. Not for boys.

Not for girls. Not for boys. We make clothes for children. It may seem obvious, but our belief that boys and girls have the same needs makes us fairly unique. We want to make the best clothes in the world for children. Who wears what – and in what colors – is up to you. This has been our reasoning since we started making children’s clothing in 1976. It is a matter of not only colors, but perhaps more importantly – also fit. Our unisex collection (UNI) consists of clothing that is based on situation and function rather than on gender. There is really no reason to design different models and fits for small boys and girls since there is no great difference in the …

Is there anything more wonderful than the first rays of sunlight in the spring? The sun is always a welcome sight after a dark and cold winter. Remember to take care since children’s skin is especially sensitive to the sun, particularly in the beginning of the season when their skin is pale. The best way to protect all of our little sunshine’s is to make sure they are not in the sun too long and to try to keep them in the shade as much as possible. There is also clothing available that can help. IDEAS FOR SMART SUN PROTECTION Babies should not be exposed to sunlight or excessively high temperatures. Protect them with a sun hat, parasol and clothing. If you are outdoors in …

Dressing a Newborn

How much clothing is right for a newborn baby? Many new parents find dressing a newborn difficult, particularly in the first few months, and especially if those first few months are in winter. You don’t want the baby to freeze, so you bundle up. But it’s most common that parents actually put too many clothes on their baby than too little. A tip for finding the right balance is to look at the thermometer and at what you’re wearing yourself. Infants have a harder time regulating body temperature than adults. That’s why it’s important to make sure the baby isn’t exposed to extreme heat or extreme cold. Adapt the clothing to the temperature and remember to take off the baby’s overall when you’re inside. A …

We love camp! We love camp for all the same reasons you loved camp as a kid—adventure in the great outdoors, new friends who you wrote letters to all year long and life-long memories that you still cherish. Today, camp is even more important since kids don’t have enough daily opportunities to play, explore and take risks. Summer camp, whether it’s sleep-away camp or day camp, provides children with a chance to explore the world in a controlled and nurturing setting. Kids can develop independence and experience things that they may not be able to at home. We talked to our staff and reflected on our own camp experiences. Together we came up with our Top 5 Reasons Summer Camp Rocks! 1. Kids develop a …
