Babies always have lower resistance and immunity. So they are easier to get sick. Once your baby gets ill, he/she should be treated on time. Taking babies to see a doctor and caring for their illnesses is very important. Because a baby can become very ill easier, or even die quickly if the illness is not recognized or treated appropriately. Parents need to address the issue of babyhood and childhood illnesses.
Today’s article will introduce some common diseases of babies. Mothers can read for references, and learn how to avoid them. Because some illnesses can be prevented and cured.
1. coughs, sore throat, fever, colds
Coughs, sore throat, fever, these symptoms are all manifestations of a cold. When there is a big temperature difference between day and night or seasons, babies are easier to get colds. Parents should pay more attention to adding or reducing their babies’ clothes, be careful for babies not to catch a cold.
Especially when babies are asleep at night, they are easier to get colds. Babies need suitable sleep sacks. Below are some recommendations:
Firstly, I am gonna introduce the fabric of this newborn sleep sack. This is made of bamboo fiber - a more breathable, softer fabric that is super suitable for summer wear. Why do babies need breathable sleep sacks in summer? Because breathable fabric allows moisture-wicking and can promote heat dissipation, and allow air circulation. Babies will feel comfortable while sleeping in it on hot summer days.
Secondly, this sleep sack has a wrap-around closure design that simulates the uterine environment for babies. Babies can feel more secure. Two folded sleeves also help to prevent babies from self-scratching and also can keep their hands warm.
In order to prevent babies from getting cold. Getting a thick, warm sleep sack is necessary. This winter sleep sack can meet this need. It has 3.5 TOG which can offer babies enough warmth at night. Compared to the above newborn sleep sack, this one has a wider range of sizes. Babies and toddlers from 3 months to 24 months all can wear it. There is a seatbelt slot on the back of the sleep sack. It is easy to transfer babies between stroller, car seat, etc. It not only can be worn at night but also can be worn outside. Every sleep sack has a long two-way zipper in the bottom. Mothers can help babies put this sleep sack on and off more conveniently. It is also easier for diaper changing and helps parents to save time and energy.
2. diarrhoea, vomiting, indigestion
Babies are fragile and easy to have problems with digestion. Sometimes, after a heavy meal, or eating something unclean, babies may have pain in the stomach. It also can make them vomit or have diarrhea. For babies, breast milk is a kind of perfect food. It is not just clean and more digestible. It is also healthy and has high nutritive value.
3. skin rashes
All babies have sensitive, delicate skins. So they are also easy to get skin problems. Babies are more likely to sweat. If you don’t change babies’ diapers and clothes in time when they are wet and dirty. On one hand, babies will feel uncomfortable and cry. On the other hand, it can cause skin rashes. Parents always want to keep their babies clean, so they would like to bathe them. But bathing babies too often also may cause skin problems, such as eczema, rashes, etc.
What can parents do? Below are some of my suggestions.
- Buy some suitable baby lotions to soothe and nourish your baby’s skin.
- Let your baby wear breathable baby clothes at any time.
- Reapply sunscreen for your baby when going out.
- Replace your baby’s dirty or wet diapers and clothes in time.
