Poisoning a newborn baby
Intoxication or poisoning refers to the body’s response to toxic toxins that disrupt its normal functioning. In young children, digestive organs are just beginning to form, so the toxicoinfection is much heavier, more intense than in adults. Any poisoning is fraught with complications and at the slightest signs of intoxication you should consult a doctor
The ways of getting poisonous substances into the body are different:
- oral – through the mouth;
- cavitary – getting into the ear cavity or into the rectum;
- Inhalation – inhalation;
- through the skin – bites and nyxes.
Oral intoxication can cause poor-quality or spoiled lure, poor handling of the bottle or nipples. Up to six months, doctors do not advise to introduce into the ration of babies meat mashed potatoes, cereals and cow’s milk. Early heavy lure can cause indigestion and poisoning. All products that the mother uses to make mashed potatoes must undergo a thorough thermal treatment.
When breastfeeding, you should pay due attention to hygiene to avoid food poisoning. Before each feeding, you should wash your hands with soap and wash your breast with clean water. The first drops of milk are better to express, they can contain pathogens. (See also about – Pyloectasia in an infant)
