How to treat rickets in infants

To help your child cope with a shortage of vitamin D, experts turn to complex therapy. It includes several items.

1. Adjustment of diet and diet

The doctor will recommend breastfeeding the baby for as long as possible: Mom’s milk contains the optimal doses of vitamins and minerals necessary for the development of your baby. A nursing mother can help the baby by taking special vitamin-mineral complexes and following the recommendations of dieticians during lactation.

Dietitians recommend that babies with rickets and who are bottle-fed be given a fermented milk 1-2 times a day instead of the usual mixture: it improves metabolism and absorption of minerals important for bone formation.

This diagnosis does not affect the timing of the introduction of complementary foods, but the first food will most likely be porridge. Nutritionists say: purchased baby cereal is more useful than homemade. If the baby has rickets, she will also provide additional help.

First, the majority of children’s cereals of industrial production are enriched with calcium and vitamins. Vitamin D is specially added to some of them. Secondly, phytic acid is destroyed in the process of preparing purchased porridges in cereals, which hampers the absorption of key nutrients for the development of the baby.

2. Walking in the fresh air

With food, we can get a maximum of half the daily intake of vitamin D. The remaining 50% is produced by our skin under the influence of sunlight. In order to adjust this process, it is necessary to walk with the baby at least 2-3 hours a day; during walks, it is desirable to leave the top of the stroller open so that the sun’s rays fall even on the baby’s face.

3. Reception of vitamins

To compensate for the deficiency of vitamin D in children with rickets, it is possible only at the expense of the drug, which is a liquid solution of vitamin D. It is prescribed by a doctor.

When rickets need to move as much as possible. In order to stimulate physical activity, in the first months of life, the baby is given a massage in combination with gymnastics elements.

Stroke the arms and legs, massage the back, shift the crumbs on the tummy. You can also swing it in the fetal position on the ball.

Of the exercises, diluting the arms and legs to the sides, alternately flexing them (“bicycle”), sliding steps, and turning the body are useful.

In the cold season, the doctor may send a crumb to physical therapy. For example, on quartz.

It should be carried out only in a polyclinic under the supervision of medical staff. Ultraviolet radiation (UV) sessions stimulate the production of vitamin D. The course is carried out once a year.

Not be superfluous and stimulation of the immune system – electrophoresis. The course duration is 10 days, the duration of the procedure is about 10 minutes.

Coniferous baths are also effective in treating rickets in children. Aromatic substances contained in the extract of needles, reflexively increase blood flow in skeletal muscles, and essential oils soothe the central nervous system.

The course consists of 10 coniferous baths, which the child takes in a day. This procedure can be done without fear at home.

To do this, it is necessary to add coniferous extract to the water prepared for bathing the baby, in the right proportion.
