Baby’s protection against cold air is the key
The cold winter is here, the cold wind tells Xiao Xiao of the winter with coldness, and my parents must have noticed that the recent weather has changed a lot.
According to the weather forecast, “strong cold air hits most of the country again, and the local temperature has dropped by more than 20 ° C.” Now even the warm southern country is infected with chill.
A few degrees of temperature drop is a huge challenge for adults, not to mention children.
How can a baby cope with the sudden cold air?
Faced with the sudden cold air, moms and dads need to take precautions against cold for our babies!
Cold wave strikes, babies under 3 years old test!
We know that the baby’s body has reduced immunity in the cold winter, especially infants and toddlers aged 0-3 have been severely tested by the cold wave.
Because the development of various organs in infants and young children is not yet mature, the ability to adjust to the environment is poor, and it is easy for diseases to enter.
Once you find that your child has cough, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, vomiting, crying for no reason, fever, etc., you must not ignore it, so as to prevent the development of a minor illness into the four key parts of the serious illness, prevent the cold, and not be afraid of a cold surge
When the cold wave hits, parents can’t stop it. All they can do is keep the baby warm.
However, it’s not that the more you wear your baby, the warmer it will be.
Too much wear will reduce the baby’s cold resistance, coupled with the baby’s activity, it will generate heat itself, and the heat energy metabolism in the body will be damaged if worn too much, but it will be more susceptible to colds and other diseases.
Moms and dads, in fact, as long as you keep the following key parts warm and choose the right clothes for your baby, you can keep him warm through the winter.
1. The skull baby’s head is rich in blood vessels, and in the superficial skin, about 30% of the baby’s parts are emitted by the head, so if the head is cold, the baby’s body will be emitted earlier.fast.
In addition, the baby may have a thin subcutaneous skin. This area is cold, which causes the baby’s resistance to decline.
Necessary clothing: (1) Hat: prepare a warm and comfortable hat for the baby, and wear it when going out in winter, which can reduce the emission of whole body scattering and thus keep warm.
As far as possible, choose a hat made of pure cotton. Wool hats can easily irritate the skin, causing skin infections and inflammation.
(2) Scarf: The scarf is almost directly against the skin. Some of the baby’s skin is very sensitive and fragile, so the fabric must be soft and comfortable, or cotton.
Don’t just try to be beautiful, don’t choose a scarf with pompoms, buttons and other decorations, otherwise it will be easy for the baby to eat by mistake.
When buying a scarf for your baby, you can try it on your neck first, and then buy it without discomfort.
Unless the wind or sandy weather, do not cover your mouth and nose when wearing a scarf, otherwise the baby’s adaptability to cold air will be reduced, and the bacteria in the fiber of the scarf will be easily inhaled by the baby or cause allergic diseases.
In addition, the scarf has many opportunities to contact the child’s eyes, nose and nose, and should be cleaned frequently.
2. Abdominal cold can easily damage the baby’s spleen and stomach function, and it will cause abdominal pain, diarrhea, indigestion and other diseases, so keep your tummy warm.
If your baby has symptoms such as abdominal discomfort due to cold, you can keep the abdomen warmer for a long time. For example, wrapping a hot water bottle with a towel and placing it on your small belly through clothing can alleviate your baby’s discomfort.
Necessary clothing: (1) Cotton underwear: underwear can play the most basic role in keeping warm.
The soft cotton underwear not only has better sweat absorption and breathability, but also can keep the air around the skin, cause body heat loss, and make the baby less vulnerable to cold and illness.
Underwear must be medium in size, and slightly looser. If you are one size bigger, you will lose half of the warmth.
Never choose chemical fiber underwear for your baby to wash easily, because the skin is in a transitional state when cold, and sweat gland secretion is reduced. If you wear chemical fiber clothes to your baby, it will increase the dryness and discomfort of the skin.
3, close to traditional Chinese medicine believes that people’s proximity is the confluence of yang, adjacent to the warm, cold and cold, and the evil of the wind is most likely to invade and cause disease, so maintaining “appropriate warmth” close to can prevent disease and reduce the chance of colds.
However, don’t keep the front warm too much. If you sweat too much because you wear too much, you will be susceptible to wind and cause a cold.
Necessary clothing: (1) Cotton vest: When it’s cold, don’t wear a lot of tops for your baby. Too much clothing and overweight will restrict your baby’s activities and even affect breathing.
It is recommended to prepare a small, soft, warm cotton vest for the baby, which is windproof and warm, and does not hinder small-scale and small-hand activities.
(2) Sweater: When it is slightly cold, it is recommended to choose a sweater, sweater or cotton sweater with a snap button on the neckline, so that you can wear more time and make it easy for the baby to put on and take off.
Many times, baby clothes cannot be worn, not because the clothes are short and narrow, but because the head cannot pass through the neckline.
It is important to note that you should not choose long-sleeved and easily depilated sweaters, otherwise the replaced fluff can be easily sucked into the trachea and lungs by mistake.
4. The feet are cold from the feet, our feet are farthest from the heart, and the blood supply is small. If cold, the blood circulation will be further reduced, and the upper respiratory tract mucosa and microvasculature will be reflected, which will lurk in the nose and throat.Pathogenic microorganisms take the opportunity to reproduce in large numbers, which can easily lead to respiratory infections in babies with low immunity.
Keep your child’s feet warm to adapt to changes in the outside climate.
Necessary clothing: (1) socks: suitable size, loose socks, elastic and comfortable fabrics, all three can only be a good pair of socks, so that the little feet can have free movement. The socks can be cotton or bamboo charcoal.
Because the baby’s metabolism is relatively strong, the little feet sweat more, the socks are often shorter, it is easy to breed bacteria, and the baby’s feet are cold. Therefore, check the baby’s socks frequently.
(2) Shoes: Slightly loose shoes are more suitable. Too large is not good for heat preservation, and too small is not good for moisture loss.
The toe is mainly a round toe, and it is better not to hinder the development of the foot shape and squeeze the toes.
The upper should be soft.
The soles must be moisture-proof and non-slip.
Choose a soft cotton fabric for the lining. Such shoes can not only be comfortable for the baby, but also have good thermal insulation.
It is best to dry your baby’s shoes every night before going to bed to remove the moisture from the day, so that it will be more comfortable and warm the next day.
