Infant Care For Summer
Infants are our little bundle of happiness. Summer is season when you have to be a bit extra conscious regarding cares of the baby. Many moms think that its winter when you’re baby needs to be attended more carefully but you have to be careful for your baby as well.
Keep The Baby Hydrated
Keep your baby hydrated as much as possible. Water could help best in fighting with summer and rise in temperature.
Water helps maintain pH level of the body which drops down so quickly in summers. If your baby is less than six months of the age then it would be better to consult doctor before increasing the amount of water.
Switch to some light and easy to digest baby food. In summers, even we elders, are not in mood to have something heavy and stuffy then how could babies have that.
It would be better to give baby some light food. To assure full supply of nutrients shorten the meal intervals. For infants, mother feed is the best diet for all seasons.
Don’t Leave Prepared Food Open And Out
At high temperature, baby food gets spoiled very quickly. Be very careful about that, this may be severe vomiting or may be diarrhea.
Diarrhea in many cases reported as severe as cause of death. The main ingredient of baby food is milk and it could get spoiled due to high temperature. So, prepare the baby just at the mealtime, if it is still some in plate immediately put it in refrigerator.
Proper Ventilation Is Must
Make sure that the room in which baby live is properly ventilated. Poor ventilation can cause suffocation in high temperature.
Use fans and air conditioners to assure comfort for the baby and for lowering the room temperature. Use curtain light and soft curtains on windows. Spraying water on curtains can also help in lowering the room temperature.
