It’s good to bathe your baby. However, parents are often in a hurry in the face of the baby. In fact, the knowledge of bathing the newborn is great. Bath water temperature, bath items, bath order and method, as well as touch after bath, etc. are all needed to master. Do you know when baby shouldn’t take a bath? Let’s study together!
Do not bathe your child in six situations!
One: after feeding
First of all, bathing immediately after feeding 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 digestive 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.
2. Frequent vomiting
If you encounter frequent vomiting, do not bathe your baby temporarily. Because it is inevitable to move the baby when bathing, which will aggravate the vomiting and cause the vomit to be inhaled by mistake when not paying attention.
For the sake of the baby’s health and safety, it’s better to wait for the baby to take a bath.
Three: after injection
Vaccination is essential for every baby. At this time, parents need to pay attention that the minimally invasive mouth of vaccination can not touch water, or it may cause redness and swelling of the vaccination site.
After any vaccination, the baby may have redness, swelling and induration at the vaccination site. If the baby is bathed after vaccination, once there is a swelling reaction, it is not very good to judge whether it is due to vaccination reaction or bathing infection.
IV. within 48 hours of fever or fever regression
Improper bathing can sometimes make the skin pores closed, resulting in higher body temperature and aggravation of the disease; sometimes it can make the whole body skin capillaries dilated and congested, 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 the wind cold and cause fever again, or the fever is more serious, so it is suggested that the baby should take a bath 48 hours after the fever subsides.
V: when the baby has skin damage
Baby skin damage, such as pustules, boils, scalds, trauma, etc., at this time should not take a bath.
Because the local area of skin damage will have wound, bathing will make the wound spread or be polluted, aggravate the damage degree of baby’s skin, or cause a series of unnecessary complications.
6. Take a bath carefully for low weight children
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, thin subcutaneous fat and poor thermoregulation, they are prone to temperature fluctuations due to changes in ambient temperature. It is necessary to carefully decide whether to bathe them.
Even if the child is healthy, in such a cold day, you should also pay attention to bathing the baby, do not catch cold!
Parents should pay attention to that they can not bathe their children at any time. Otherwise, it will do great harm to our children. If you are interested in children’s health habits, please go to this safety net for relevant information.
