Is it possible or impossible to bathe a child after vaccination? Opinion of pediatricians and mummies

As a preventive measure against various viruses and diseases, babies are vaccinated from an early age. After vaccination many parents try to refrain from water procedures with the child, as there is an opinion that it is impossible to bathe the baby after the procedure for at least 48 hours. Some doctors confirm this opinion, considering that the child really should not bathe for 2 days. But more and more pediatricians deny this point of view, arguing that there is no connection between vaccination and the child’s contact with water.

Inoculation; it is an injection to increase the immunity and ability of the child’s body to resist various infections. In the blood together with the vaccination comes a very small number of weakly active bacteria and viruses, from which the body must be protected. Immunity of the child is activated, triggering a response to the inoculation, which prevents the development of the disease in the body.

There are recommendations of specialists that the baby should bathe the day before the expected vaccination, and then abstain from the water procedures for 2-3 days. Such actions the child want to protect, even from the very minimal possibility of infection with any infection.

First of all, you need to be guided by the condition of the baby, in order to understand whether you can bathe or not. If the baby’s fever has risen or he just does not feel well after the vaccination, it is better not to bathe. If the child is vigorous, active and cheerful, then there are no special restrictions for bathing after vaccination.

It is believed that immediately after vaccination children can not be bathed, because the body is weakened and it is believed that there is a risk of infection due to water, because running water is a source of pathogenic microorganisms and is not cleaned properly (in fact, water does not carry any dangers for crumbs). It is also considered that you can overcool and catch cold. Therefore, many parents do not bathe their children for 1.5-2 days after the injection.

At first, the protective power of the body is indeed slightly weakened. The amount of antibodies produced is not yet enough to actively combat infectious diseases. In the first 24 hours, children may get fever after the vaccination, get a sore throat, a cough may appear. Bathing can provoke all these negative consequences due to the temperature drop.

Due to the fact that the body is weakened, doctors also recommend limiting the stay in the fresh air. Immediately after the injection, the probability of getting infected with airborne viruses increases, or you accidentally catch a cold.

To bathe a child is contraindicated if there are signs of flu or cold:


Many therapists and pediatricians advise to refrain from water procedures after vaccinations. But now such advice is given by doctors less and less, as there are no negative consequences for the child's organism from contact with water. If children do not bathe for too long, do not allow hypothermia and immediately wrap in a towel after bath procedures; the risk of catching a cold is very small. Do not bathe the child after vaccination, doctors recommend in order to additionally prevent and avoid fever, cough and a cold.

Dr. Komarovsky believes that if the baby feels well after the vaccination, then there is no need to impose restrictions. You can continue to live according to the usual regime, go for walks and swim.

Conclusion: bathing after vaccination does not pose any threat to the health of the baby and you can swim. The main thing is the normal temperature of the baby's body, just watch for his well-being and do not allow hypothermia. Observing simple precautions, you can continue to conduct water procedures in the usual way.
