Bathing the baby can not only promote the baby’s development, but also find out where the baby’s body is damaged in time, and provide timely care, and can also enhance the feelings between parents and children. But there are many things to pay attention to when bathing your baby. If you don’t pay attention, you will make your baby sick, but many parents don’t notice. But bathing for babies, there are many taboos.
There are many taboos for a baby to bathe
A parent said that his son was born three months ago and just got vaccinated today. The doctor told him not to take a bath for the time being. The parent didn’t understand the reason. In addition, the parents also want to know what is appropriate and taboo for baby bathing.
Baby’s skin is tender, and metabolism is very vigorous. Sweat and other excreta are easy to accumulate. Bathing is an important part of baby’s care, but the time should also be chosen. In some cases, it is necessary to reduce the number of baths or not to take a bath temporarily.
It is better not to take a bath within 24 hours of infant vaccination, but it can be wiped and changed. When bathing in a week, keep the injection area clean and dry, and do not touch water. In 2-3 months after BCG vaccination, it is normal for local exudate to form scabs, and it should be careful not to break them when bathing.
In summer, you need to take a bath every day, or even several times a day. In winter, the temperature is low, the sweat is little, the skin is not easy to get dirty, the bath is a little careless and easy to catch cold, so the number of baths can be appropriately reduced, but at least once a week.
Infants are restless, loss of appetite, crying, usually symptoms of illness or disease, can not take a bath for a while. At this time, bathing will make the child tired, and the water temperature will make the blood vessels of the whole body expand, the blood flow speed up, the condition aggravates or the temperature rises. When infants have fever, frequent vomiting, diarrhea, loss of water in the body, resulting in the reduction of effective circulating blood volume. When bathing, blood vessels dilate, and a large amount of blood is deposited in the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Hypotension is easy to occur, and collapse can occur in severe cases. Infants less than two days after fever (that is, 48 hours) should not take a bath. Because in the process of antipyretic, the pores of the skin are open, the external guard is not solid, and the resistance is low. At this time, it is afraid to take a bath and feel cold again, which makes the disease repeated or aggravated.
It is not advisable for infants to take a bath immediately after feeding or eating, and the interval should be at least 1 hour. The stomach of infants is horizontal, the upper (CARDIA) sphincter is loose, and the lower (pylorus) sphincter is tight. Take a bath immediately after eating full milk. The body position changes too much. After moving, the stomach is like a bottle pouring out. It is easy to spit out the food just eaten, which may cause suffocation and endanger life.
Gastrointestinal peristalsis and blood circulation are mainly controlled by vegetative nerves. After satiety, parasympathetic nerve is excited, gastrointestinal peristalsis is accelerated, and a large amount of blood is filled and accumulated to complete digestion and absorption. At this time, take a bath immediately, the skin will expand with heat, the blood flow will increase, the blood circulation will suddenly decrease, resulting in the decrease of gastrointestinal peristalsis and the secretion of digestive fluid. For a long time, it will affect the function of digestive system and cause symptoms such as dyspepsia and gastrointestinal dysfunction; in addition, if the skin of infants is scalded or suffering from pustules, chickenpox, measles and other diseases, the skin epidermis has different degrees of edema, damage, exudation and other inflammatory reactions. Bathing often aggravates skin damage or induces infection, aggravates illness, and even leads to sepsis, so bathing should be suspended.
&Nbsp; reminder: in addition to the baby’s own factors, it is also limited by the surrounding environment. When bathing the baby, the ambient temperature should be 26-28 ℃, and the water temperature should be 40-42 ℃. The common sense about what health habits children need to cultivate is still in the process of updating. Please continue to pay attention to this website
