Baby baths are not as casual as adults. The water temperature, the amount of bath gel and whether to add hot water should be paid attention to by Baoma. If you don’t want to heat it, you must heat it according to the baby’s needs. Otherwise, it’s really dangerous. But have you heard? Baby bath water can not be used!

When the baby takes a bath, it needs to be diluted by 4-5 times

A 1-year-old boy was declared brain dead Sunday morning in the intensive care unit of Shenzhen Children’s hospital. The cause of death was that the child had a fever and his parents used industrial alcohol to cool him down physically.

Song Chunlan, director of the ICU of the Municipal Children’s Hospital, said that industrial alcohol contains a large amount of methanol, which is highly toxic. “Ordinary medical alcohol should be mixed with water in a proportion of 1:1 for normal people, and even drinking white wine must be mixed with water in a proportion.”

With the increase of temperature, the use frequency of flower dew is higher and higher. Recently, the news of a 3-year-old baby’s left leg burning with water and flowers spread on the Internet.

The main component of the flower dew is ethanol (i.e. alcohol), which is inflammable and explosive, and the ignition point is very low. Zhuang tanyue, director of Pediatrics of Zhengzhou people’s Hospital, said: “parents should try to choose the flower dew for their children, not for adults. In addition, if you want to use the flower dew in the bath, you should first dilute it 4-5 times, and avoid direct contact with the children’s eyes.”

Because the absorption function of infant skin is much stronger than that of adult, and the detoxification and metabolism ability of liver is not perfect, if a large number of application, it is easy to cause alcohol accumulation and poisoning.
