Common baby care problems.
The child has different problems than the adult and we often don't know, how to fix them. The list of such ailments is long. Colic is the most common dietary fault. We change it and observe the effects. Symptomatically, you can use dill or cumin in drinking solution, quite strong massage around the navel (circular movements) or you can use a hair dryer by carefully directing its heat stream onto the baby's abdomen. The dryer calms down with its warmth and noise. Prolonged jaundice is reason to see your doctor, but you usually have to deal with it yourself. By 2-3 days we express natural milk, we heat up to 70 degrees, we cool it down and feed it from the nipple. If it does not help - return to the doctor. Phototherapy is sometimes used in the course of such jaundice, after which bran skin peeling develops. The method for it is cholesterol ointment, possibly paraffin or olive oil. To combat burns in the diaper area, it is better to use only ointments until the first month of life. After that, you can also choose powders and powders. If erosions appear, only oil ointment is effective. Prickly heat can also be a problem, usually located on the neck and in the flexions of the limbs. It is the fault of the ambient temperature above 20 degrees, and also the issue of too warm clothes. It should be reduced and action taken. Bathing in a potassium permanganate solution or a starch solution will help with Male and numerous heat rashes (spoon of starch for a tub of water). Large heat rash can be wiped with a cotton swab. One cotton ball for one prickly sweat, so as not to spread them. The fight against the darkroom with the ear lasts for several days. During this time, the hair is oiled with oil and left on 1-2 hours, then the child is combed against the grain and washed its head. Draining the umbilical cord is also problematic. This must be done with each diaper change, and a cotton bud with alcohol or a special agent from a pharmacy works best. The stump will fall off after 2 weeks, after which drying must be repeated for a few more weeks and checked, there is no blood or pus on the swab.
