Bathing a newborn baby can promote blood circulation, speed up mental metabolism, wash off fatigue and dust, and is especially good for the baby’s body! However, it is not always possible to bathe a child. If you take a bath at an inappropriate time, it is easy to cause unnecessary injury. Therefore, novice parents need to see: baby bathing live.
(1) precautions for entering water
When holding the baby, it is required to adopt the horizontal holding type. In order to prevent the bath water from entering the ears, lift the baby’s head with the left or right hand palm, press the two ears with the thumb and little finger, and lift the baby’s buttocks with the other hand. When putting the child in the bath, the action should be light so as not to frighten the child. The gauze for bathing should be a large piece of gauze that can cover the whole body. This gauze can replace the towel, which can wash the face or wipe the body.
(2) take a bath for 10 minutes
After putting the baby in warm water, release the hand holding the hip, and then use this hand to wipe the baby’s face with gauze. When washing the eyes, wipe them from the inner corner to the outer corner. For the head and ears that are easy to hide dirt, wash them with soap. When washing the body, wipe the chest, arms and abdomen successively from top to bottom.
To prevent water droplets from entering the baby’s ears, it is advisable to lie down horizontally and wipe the back and buttocks with gauze. Then the baby will lie on his back, wipe his feet with gauze, then rinse with water, and the bath is over.
It only takes 10 minutes from undressing to bathing and then changing into new clothes. In fact, babies spend about five minutes bathing in warm water.
(3) replenish water for children
Dry and dress your child quickly before the water cools. Wipe off the moisture with a bath towel. Clean baby’s nostrils and ears with a cotton stick, but never too deep. The navel is pressed with disinfectant cotton and gauze, and then glued with adhesive. After taking a bath, you should replenish water for your child in time. You can feed some cold boiled water or milk.
(4) when unable to wash
When a baby has a cold, fever or diarrhea, stop bathing and wipe his face and buttocks with a towel to keep them clean. Sponge can also be used to bathe the baby. After the baby is undressed, dip the warm sponge in soap to clean the body parts to be washed. Then wipe off the soap with the soaked gauze and towel, and then wipe again with the dry towel. If the baby’s body is not very dirty, do not use soap, just wipe it with soaked gauze or sponge.
&Some adults like to take a bath in the morning, so they will do so after the baby wakes up. But the morning is the most vulnerable time of the day. Taking a bath will take away a lot of heat energy from the baby’s body, resulting in discomfort all day long, which is actually bad for the health of the body.
