When the baby is still in the mother’s stomach, it is growing up in amniotic fluid, so the baby is born to love playing with water, so most babies love bathing. But a lot of time is not suitable for bathing, in order to avoid injury, the baby should not bathe in the following six situations!
When can’t the baby take a bath
Situation 1: after the injection.
You can’t take a bath after your baby’s injection. That’s because after the baby’s preventive injection, there will be a pinhole on the skin that is difficult to see with the naked eye temporarily. At this time, bathing is easy to contaminate the pinhole.
Case 2: frequent vomiting and diarrhea.
Do not take a bath when the baby has frequent vomiting and diarrhea. Because when bathing, it is necessary to move the baby, which will aggravate the vomiting and may even cause the vomit to be inhaled by mistake.
Case 3: fever or fever regression within 48 hours.
Taking a bath for a feverish baby can easily make the baby shiver and even convulse; improper bathing can sometimes close the pores of the skin and lead to a higher body temperature, sometimes make the whole body’s skin capillaries expand and congest, resulting in the lack of blood supply to the main organs of the baby’s body. In addition, the resistance of the baby after fever is very poor, and it is easy for the baby to take a bath immediately to suffer from wind cold, which causes fever again. Therefore, it is suggested that the baby should take a bath 48 hours after the fever subsides.
Case 4: skin damage.
When the baby has skin damage, such as pustules, boils, scalds, trauma, etc., it is not suitable to take a bath at this time. Because the damaged part of the skin will have wound, bathing will make the wound spread or be polluted.
Situation 5: just finished milk.
After eating the milk, take a bath immediately, which will make more blood flow to the expanded epidermal blood vessels stimulated by hot water, while the abdominal blood supply will be relatively reduced, which will affect the digestion function of the baby. Secondly, because the baby’s stomach is dilated after feeding, taking a bath immediately is also easy to cause vomiting. So bathing should usually be done 1-2 hours after feeding.
Situation 6: low birth weight.
Low birth weight babies usually refer to babies whose birth weight is less than 2500 grams. Most of these babies are premature. Due to immature development, low living ability, thin subcutaneous fat and poor thermoregulation, they are prone to temperature fluctuations due to changes in ambient temperature. So for this kind of special baby to be careful to decide whether to give a bath.
