Autumn is a period of high incidence of children’s illness. It is inseparable from these three misunderstandings in life. Mom will take a look.
When the new semester starts for a period of time in autumn, children in kindergartens and elementary schools will frequently get sick. Either have fever and colds repeatedly, or diarrhea and diarrhea will not be good, and some will have chickenpox or even hand, foot and mouth.
So why do children get sick especially in the fall? Is it because the temperature drops and the weather becomes cold, is it useful to put more clothes on the children to keep them warm?
Xiao Doudou is a kindergarten middle school child. He fell ill less than a month after school started. He suddenly developed a fever of nearly 40 degrees. After hanging up a bottle in the hospital for a few days, the little guy looked haggard.
After he recovered from his illness, his mother Song Xiaodoudou returned to school. After seeing the teacher, she learned that there were more than 10 children in the class who had caught colds, and several of them couldn’t come to school because of hospitalization.
The teacher also repeatedly told Doudou’s mother that she should pay more attention to Doudou’s physical condition recently, so that her child should not catch cold anymore.
Mama Doudou is a little puzzled. She always pays attention to keeping her children warm, and puts on her a thick coat as soon as the temperature drops.
Especially the child’s grandmother, when she took her child out, she wrapped her child in three layers inside and outside three layers tightly, often covering her head with sweat. With such attention to keep warm, the child would not catch a cold or catch a cold, so why did he start a fever?
In fact, many parents are like Doudou mothers. They feel that when the temperature drops in autumn, they immediately put on thick clothes for their children. They feel that as long as they keep warm, they will not get sick.
In fact, this approach is not scientific, because there are many causes of colds. Most colds are not caused by cold, but by virus infection.
So the real cause of a child’s cold is weak resistance, coupled with the change of temperature and dry air, so it is particularly easy to get sick in autumn.
Children fall easy Reasons for the illness
1. Weak resistance
Due to the young age, the child has not developed enough resistance. In addition, many children often stay at home before going to kindergarten, and their parents rarely take their children out. This results in children living in a relatively closed environment all the time, and they are exposed to a single type of bacteria.
Once a child enters a group life after school, he will be exposed to a large number of bacteria and germs, and coupled with the inherently weak resistance, they will be particularly susceptible to illness.
2. The risk of being infected is high
Children are more likely to be infected by the virus than adults because of their weak resistance. Therefore, many epidemic diseases such as influenza, hand, foot and mouth disease, etc., children are high-risk groups.
In addition, children come into contact with many people in the school. The school is densely populated and the environment is closed, so it is easy to cause a cluster of infectious diseases.
3. Did not develop good eating and hygiene habits
Many young children did not develop good eating and hygiene habits. They don’t like to wash their hands and eat indiscriminately. Cold and junk food, irregular eating, picky eaters and partial eclipses, these bad habits can lead to a series of diseases. Such as diarrhea, diarrhea, or gastrointestinal discomfort.
If the diet is not regular for a long time, it may also cause malnutrition and further reduce the immune system, then the risk of being infected by the virus will further increase.
Understanding the main reasons why children love to fall ill in autumn, we can take preventive measures in a targeted manner, adjust daily food, clothing, home and travel, and try to eliminate hidden dangers, so as to achieve The effect of disease prevention.
What about parents in autumn It’s wrong to keep children from getting sick.
1. Dress appropriately
Many parents start to put thick clothes on their children when the temperature drops slightly in autumn, because they are afraid of their children getting cold. The approach is not reasonable.
Because the child has a lot of activity, he loves to sweat, so after wearing it, it will make the child sweat more easily. After sweating, the pores of the whole body will expand. Once a little cold wind is encountered, it is very easy to catch a cold. . Therefore, the clothes for children in autumn should not be too heavy, and children over 3 years old should wear as many clothes as adults.
2. Reasonable diet
In terms of diet, make sure that the nutrition is balanced and the collocation is reasonable. Don’t give your children too many greasy and indigestible foods. Focus on high-quality protein, and eat more fresh fruits and greens. Vegetables. In autumn, you can give your children more fruits and vegetables that have the effect of moisturizing the lungs, such as pears, radishes, and yams.
Usually, give your child more warm water, and don’t blindly take supplements, because the daily foods can already meet the child’s nutritional needs, and there is no need to take additional health products.
3. Healthy living habits
Always let children do outdoor exercises and get more sun exposure. On the one hand, it can prevent calcium deficiency, and on the other hand, it can strengthen the body and improve immunity.
Appropriate outdoor exercise in autumn can also achieve the effect of cold-resistant training. Therefore, parents can take their children to walk outdoors when the weather is fine.
In normal homes, pay more attention to open windows for ventilation, and change and wash children’s clothes and beds. Try to avoid crowded and unventilated public places to ensure adequate sleep. Only by developing healthy living habits can you avoid getting sick. These four types of people want to hold a newborn, and mothers must dare to say “no”, and refuse no matter how good the relationship is.
About 40 weeks of pregnancy, the fetuses are finally about to start, and pregnant mothers feel that At the moment of contraction, I had to rush to the hospital, and some even admitted to the hospital in advance, just to wait for the moment of delivery.
The most important thing in a woman’s life is marriage and childbirth. When she gives birth, especially in the latter half of her life, relatives and friends with better relationships will come to visit and wait together.
After more than ten hours of waiting, the baby is finally taken out of the delivery room. Everyone will rush to look at the little guy. By the next day, after everyone knew the news, they went to the hospital one after another.
If it is a normal child, you can basically be discharged after 2 to 3 days in the hospital, but if it is a C-section, you must stay in the hospital for at least a week before being discharged.
Actually, there are relatively few family members who come to the hospital to visit the newborns. When the new mothers return home, relatives of all sizes will naturally come to visit. It is inevitable that you will meet some relatives at this time. What should I do if I ask to hold a newborn baby?
1. People who have a cold
At the time when I had just given birth to a child, my mother came to the hospital to visit. As the child’s grandma, she naturally wanted to get close to the child, and it was best to be able to hug the child.
But during that time, my mother happened to be ill, and it was quite serious. Originally, she didn’t wear a mask at home, but because she came to see the baby, she wore a mask carefully, fearing that she might infect the baby.
The thing that touched me most was that even though my mother was wearing a mask, she was not too close to the baby. She was still worried about affecting the baby. She looked at the baby at a distance of about half a meter.
In fact, very few people have this kind of consciousness, which is why it is recommended to parents, if the relatives who come to visit have symptoms of colds or other diseases, they must not be in close contact. Baby, otherwise it may cause the baby to get sick or catch a cold.
Because babies are born with low immunity and the cold virus carried by adults is relatively active, if they are accidentally transmitted to the baby, the possibility of the baby getting a cold will increase.
Furthermore, the baby is in the golden period of growth and development for a period of time after birth. If the baby catches a cold at this stage, it will naturally affect their growth and development.
2. People who don’t pay attention to hygiene
Similarly, if those people who don’t pay attention to hygiene usually have a lot of dirt on their hands, or don’t change clothes often, it’s best to refuse such people to treat their children. Intimate contact.
After all, such people usually carry more bacteria on their bodies, and they may also cause infections to children. The principle has been emphasized above, and it is also due to the problem of children’s weak resistance.
3. People who have just finished drinking
I’m angry when I talk about this. My cousin felt that he finished drinking that day. His youngest son was about a month or so. At that time, he returned home at 11 o’clock in the evening. , Had to lift the little son from the crib to coax him, the little guy was still asleep, and was awakened by his muttering.
The cousin drank quite a lot. At the time, it was useless to persuade the cousin to bring the child over. He didn’t let him go, but later he couldn’t stand firm, and the drunk had no strength. , Maybe his hands were weak, and he fell directly to the bed without holding the little guy, when the little guy cried directly.
Such a disturbance made my cousin sober, and my uncle and aunt also got up. Fortunately, there was nothing wrong with the child later. From that time on, my cousin decided not to drink anymore.
Therefore, if Bao Dad drinks alcohol, it is best not to hand over the little guys to Bao Dad. After all, drunk people are not very clear-headed and their bodies are relatively weak. Take control of the strength to hold the baby, fall or hold the baby too tight, these may hurt the baby.
4. People who smoke frequently
Be aware that more than 100,000 people die from second-hand smoke every year in my country. According to investigations, second-hand smoke is more harmful than smoking. If some people who smoke regularly ask to hold the baby, it is not recommended to hold them.
Because the smoke particles may adhere to clothes for several days to dozens of days, and the baby’s respiratory tract and nasal cavity are not fully developed, the smoke particles will enter the baby’s respiratory tract through the nasal cavity. It may cause the baby’s respiratory tract infection or rhinitis, and in severe cases, it may cause infection, so you need to pay special attention.
It is also not recommended for those people to smoke directly in the room where the newborns and new mothers are. If this happens, they must be stopped in time. Don’t be afraid to refuse because they are relatives or good friends.
Know that those who really care about you will accept your opinions and feel sorry for their actions.
If you dare not refuse, it may be that the little guy is sick or catches a cold. In addition, the child is still so young now, if the root cause of the disease falls in the future, it will be useless to regret it in the future.
