All about using a gas pipe for a newborn
Each future mother studies tons of literature, trying to prepare as much as possible at the time of the birth of the child. However, theoretical preparation is not the key to success, because you will never know what to expect for sure. The most common problem in newborns is intestinal colic and gas. The formation of gazikov is the result of air bubbles due to improper capture of the breast or nipples of the bottle. Cope with the problem will help a gas pipe, capable of replacing many other means.
It sells such a tool in almost any pharmacy and is a small diameter tube, the length of which is about two centimeters. One end of the tube has a rounding, which allows you to enter it without much difficulty. The device is plastic enough, and at the moment of interaction with the baby’s body it becomes even softer, not bringing unpleasant sensations to the child.
Advice of a specialist: when choosing a tube, you should pay attention to the state of its outer coating. Sometimes you can notice on the outside of the tool a notch or roughness – this should be avoided. Any defect in the tube shell can cause a baby to develop peritonitis or other negative consequences.
The gas outlet instrument should be purchased in cases where the following problems are observed in the baby:
- pain in the process of defecation;
- lack of stool for longer than 2 days;
- unpleasant or painful sensations due to the accumulation of gaziches in the tummy of a child.
