We all miss the heat and the sun so much that at the slightest of its manifestations we do not hesitate to get light clothes and walk late. However, it is worth remembering that the spring heat is very deceptive, as evidenced by seasonal out-soldies in pharmacies and polyclinics.
What to do to not get sick with a sharp change in the weather? Let’s share experiences and secrets!
It is no secret that spring is the period of avitaminosis. After all, there are no seasonal fruits and vegetables, after winter the body is weakened. To strengthen the immune system, I give my daughter vitamins and some vitamins separately.
Their choice in the pharmacy is huge, I advise you to study in advance and compare their composition. It is even better to look in advance on the Internet the daily need of the body for essential vitamins and minerals and compare these figures with the label. Additionally, I give my daughter vitamin C and fish oil. I do not know what it is connected with, but my daughter is extremely rare.
This issue should be approached seriously, because for a child both overheating and overcooling are dangerous. And, contrary to popular belief, overheating in this case is far from the best option.
From birth, I control the condition of my daughter, touching the upper back. If it is wet, the baby is hot. This method is more truthful than the traditional one with a spout and handles.
I never dress my daughter warmer than myself. After all, she behaves while walking is much more active. I always make sure that my back is not exposed. I’ll tell you a secret, until three years my daughter went to bodybuilders, and I still wear combidress from September to May.
When the air temperature is above 15, I don’t wear tights and a hat and take out a vest. However, in the presence of wind a thin hat or headphones will not be superfluous. In the evening I try not to wear rubber shoes, after all, the earth is still not so hot, and the legs can freeze.
During the height of viral infections, do not forget to regularly flush the baby’s nose with saline. Especially, after visiting public places and clinics. By the way, you can not flush your nose just before going out, you need to wait 20-30 minutes.
It is very important to follow the basic rules of hygiene. In the spring, the daughter constantly touches something – flowers, grass, sand, animals, etc. That is why it is very important to wash your hands not only after a walk, but also during it. A typical miniature antiseptic or special wipes will do.
Exercise helps keep the body in good shape and strengthens the immune system. Therefore, we walk every day in any weather. During the walk we try to spend time as actively as possible – scooter, outdoor games, roller skates, bicycles, etc.
However, even a leisurely walk in the fresh air is much better than the same time spent at home. Especially useful to walk after a thunderstorm – humid air moisturizes the mucous membrane, and its saturation with ozone in the body is only good.
And how do you protect children from spring colds?
