Winter Child Care ::
Use lukewarm water for any work of the child, such as washing hands and face, brushing etc.
It is better not to use wipes for cleaning the ribs of very young / newborn children in Oishee. Because wipes are cold.
It is safer to soak cotton in lukewarm water and clean it.
No matter how cold it is, make sure to bathe the baby daily with lukewarm water.
One day bath, one day no gas, this routine is more harmful for the baby, Dr. Rai says, the break of the bath increases the chances of the baby getting cold.
Let the child play in the sun for a while between 10-11 am. This sun contains vitamin D, but do not keep it in the sun after 12 noon. Light sun in the morning is good for health.
If you wear diapers for 24 hours, change them every 4-5 hours. And if you put a very small child in a kantha, change it immediately if you drink it. There should be no breath in the visa.
If you are more than six months old, drink hot water every time, and in the morning you must drink honey only for those who are more than one year old. One teaspoon of honey a day is a great medicine for all diseases, and effective in preventing cold in winter.
Keep the child wearing sandals or socks all the time. Do not walk barefoot on the cold floor.
- If possible, cover the entire floor of the child's playroom with carpets or mats, so as not to roll in the cold, which more or less all children do.
Take warm clothes, but be careful whether you sweat. Sweat is more harmful than cold. Many children feel cold when they sweat in winter. Children's body temperature is higher than ours. Do not start wrapping the baby in kantha blanket as soon as it gets cold.
- Check the child's ears and nose to see if the child is feeling cold. Cold ears and nose means that the child is feeling cold.
Give regular lotion, cream. After washing hands and face in the morning, after bathing in the afternoon, in the evening and before going to bed at night.
Use Vaseline on the lips and feet, jute leaves may crack due to wearing socks all day.
✡️ Many children sweat in winter, it is better to sleep without pillows. Keep thin clothes with them. If the head gets wet during sleep, gently wipe the head repeatedly. Keep the head open while sleeping, do not give anything hat or hoodie.
In Oishee, before going to sleep, massage baby rub on the back of the baby's chest, then if you fall asleep, the cold does not go directly to the chest.
No matter how cold it is, never put a hat on the child's head while sleeping at night. It disrupts blood circulation.
The babies that will be born this winter will take some time to adapt to the external environment.
Within 3-4 days of birth, you can wipe your body with lukewarm water, you can wipe your head with a damp cloth.
In the winter of Mannat's birth, within 1 week of his birth, I used my OK lotion, the doctor told me to do the same.
I have never used mustard oil. I do not know any good or bad side of it.
Newborns should take minimum bath / wipe 3-4 days a week during winter.
