Babies themselves should like to take a bath very much, but they should be very careful when taking a bath, because not all parts can be washed. Take care when bathing your baby. It’s best not to wash these parts for your baby.
Event replay: the mother found a yellow dirt on her baby’s forehead and wanted to wash it off. Found that this dirt is too stubborn, how to wash also can’t wash off, so the mother used a towel hard in the baby’s scalp friction. Finally, if the towel doesn’t work, just rub it with your hands. As a result, your baby’s forehead is red and the dirt hasn’t been removed. The next day, the baby suddenly started a high fever, sent to the hospital, it turned out that the mother was too hard to dig the sludge of the baby’s fontanelle, resulting in the baby’s brain infection.
Can’t you really touch the fontanelle? Can’t you wash it?
1. Why is it dangerous to wash the fontanelle too hard?
First, understand what is fontanelle. The baby has two fontanelles, one is called the anterior fontanelle, in the front of the head, which is composed of the front upper corner of the parietal bone on both sides and the frontal bone, in a diamond shape; the other is called the posterior fontanelle, which is composed of the junction of the parietal bone and the occipital bone, in a triangle shape, naturally in the back of the head.
Imagine that there are two openings in the skull to protect the baby’s fragile brain tissue, and if you rub these openings or touch them with hard objects, it will be very easy to cause brain infection!
2. Failure to wash the fontanelle may also lead to brain infection!
If the fontanelle is lack of care and cleaning, and dirt accumulates, it will stifle a seborrheic eczema (commonly known as psoriasis). If the fontanelle is not cleaned for a long time, it is easy to cause scalp infection of the baby. Those pathogenic bacteria run into the baby’s brain through the fontanelle, but it is very easy to cause meningitis!
So, still want to wash fontanelle for baby. Baby shampoo can be used to gently rub and wash your fingers at the fontanelle. As long as you don’t have to press or scratch hard, you won’t hurt your baby.
If it can’t be washed out, it can be steamed with sesame oil or refined oil. Soak the dirt for 2-3 hours. When the dirt becomes soft, wipe it off with sterile cotton ball according to the growth direction of baby’s hair. One wash can not be divided into several wash, do not worry about hurting the baby.
Be careful! Bathing babies and touching these parts is the most vulnerable
In addition to the fontanelle, when the mother washes these parts for the baby, it is easy to cause “accidental injury”!
Baby’s navel and fontanelle are a little similar, directly into the baby’s body, but also easy to be infected. Many people on the Internet also say that the baby’s navel can’t be touched, which is easy to infect. In fact, the baby’s navel does not clean, long-term hiding dirt is more likely to infect, causing navel inflammation!
Cleaning skills: do not clean every day, but clean every other time. If there is scab and dirt, you can soften the dirt with olive oil first, and then gently wipe it off with a medical cotton swab.
When bathing the baby, some mothers are used to washing the baby’s ears with towels, and even cleaning the inner ear canal with cotton by the way. But this is wrong, earwax accumulation will not affect the baby’s hearing, but also to protect the ear canal.
Cleaning technique: rotate the cleaning at the outer ear canal, and do not go deep into the place you cannot see.
3. Private parts
Baby’s private area should also be well protected, and should not be cleaned randomly. In particular, some secretions of female babies are like natural protective films. If they are washed out frequently, it is not conducive to health. And frequent stimulation of the lower body when cleaning, easy to lead to premature sex.
Cleaning skills: just wash with water, do not use soap.
Therefore, we should pay attention to each part of the baby can not be touched at will, these parts must be avoided to prevent body injury. If you want to know more about the health habits that children need to cultivate, please lock in the next continuous update of Baibai safety net!
