In winter, when the weather is dry, people generally have the experience of being electrified by static electricity. For babies, regular exposure to static electricity can cause physical harm. So what are the threats of static electricity to babies? Next, Xiaobian will tell you!
Electrostatic threat to baby
In the cold season, mothers always like to put on thick clothes for their babies, but this also causes a new threat – static electricity! In fact, the cause of static electricity is friction, especially in the dry season, the friction between the clothes of chemical fiber products is very easy to generate static electricity. There is a mother’s response: “in the dry and cold season, I am very afraid of my child’s cold, so I put on more clothes for him. When I take off my clothes, I often hear the crackling sound of static electricity. Sometimes my child is” electrified “and cries.” Have you ever thought that in addition, static electricity will also affect the health of baby?
First of all, it will increase the alkaline concentration of the blood and reduce the calcium content, which is a big taboo for infants in the growth and development period. In addition, a large number of electrostatic dust contains a variety of viruses, bacteria and harmful substances, which can cause skin spot inflammation, and even cause tracheitis, asthma, arrhythmia and so on!
All cotton clothes prevent static electricity
When buying baby’s clothes, it’s best to choose natural fabrics such as cotton. Don’t buy clothes made of pure fiber because they are resistant to dirt and easy to wash. At the same time, it’s better to add some clothes care agents into the daily baby clothes washing. Clothes of different texture need different treatment methods. For example, wool fabric needs to shrink and deform in the water solution above 30 ℃, so the washing bath temperature should not exceed 30 ℃, and cotton clothes also need to be softened, so as to ensure long-term deformation. For stiff clothes, adding fabric softener will make them more flexible, which is worth learning for mothers. Remember! Make your baby comfortable, not indulge!
