Baby and summer heat

Baby and summer heat

The first “summer” change that parents notice is that the little one now sweats much more.

Before the year, the sweat glands in babies are not yet fully developed, and babies begin to sweat heavily already at a temperature of 27–28 ° C. Together with sweat, the crumb loses a lot of liquid: for example, in a 3-month-old baby weighing 5 kg per day almost a glass of water can evaporate from the skin!

From overcooling baby protects a thin layer of subcutaneous fat. Slender children who can not boast of its large reserves, easily cooled when they sweat.

And chubby kids, on the contrary, quickly overheat.

What if the pussy sweats heavily? First, water it often.

In the heat, water should be given even to children who are breastfed. Secondly, wear the crumb correctly – just wear it, because the naked baby will not become cooler, but he will sweat more.

Best of all, the child will feel in the vest, sliders or body and a thin cap. Natural fabrics (cotton, linen, cotton knitwear) retain heat and at the same time are well ventilated.

To make the baby comfortable, the temperature in the apartment should not exceed 26 ° C. Otherwise there is a risk that the child will get a heat stroke without leaving the house. If this trouble has happened to the baby, he becomes restless, and then suddenly sluggish.

His skin reddens, his temperature rises, and convulsions, vomiting, or diarrhea may begin. Baby can even lose consciousness.

In such a situation it is better to immediately call an ambulance, and before the arrival of the doctors take the baby to a cool place, wrap it in a wet sheet and put a damp towel on his forehead. Wiping with medical alcohol half diluted with water will help reduce the temperature.

After these procedures, the baby should be wiped and wrapped in a dry diaper so that it does not overcool.

In fine days, you want your baby to be on the air longer! But moderation is also important here.

From 10 to 14 o’clock the baby should not be taken out at all, even in the shade. It is better for a child to walk and take air and sunbaths before 10 and after 17 hours.

Leave it naked for no more than 20 minutes twice a day.

Even in the heat of the baby, it is enough to bathe, as usual, once a day, but it is necessary to pay special attention to the purity of the “delicate” parts of his body. In summer, babies often have diaper rash, so that at this time it is better to alternate disposable diapers with gauze.
