Common mistakes of novice parents in baby care
Daily care for babies under one year old is very important. If the care is not correct or wrong, it will also bring harm to the healthy development of the baby. Many parents have mistakes in baby care.
What are the common mistakes of novice parents in baby care?
The following editors will answer the common mistakes in baby care.
1. Turn on the lights to sleep and turn off the lights to sleep.
The light at the bedside almost affects the baby’s sleep quality and then affects vision development.
Any artificial light source will produce a faint light pressure on the human body. This kind of light pressure persists for a long time, causing infants and young children to be worried, nervous, and difficult to sleep.
Sleeping in the light for a long time will affect the mesh activation system of the eyes, resulting in shortened sleep time, lighter sleep depth, and easier to wake up.
The proportion of babies sleeping in the light to those sleeping in the dark is 4 times higher than the incidence of myopia.
2, wear too much clothes to sleep should not wear too hot.
The high humidity of the quilt and the strong metabolism of the baby can easily cause “smoldering syndrome”, which can cause the baby to sweat and even collapse.
Similarly, the use of electric blankets can easily affect health due to mild dehydration caused by high temperatures.
3. Waking the sleeping baby to urinate the baby’s sleep is very important. If the baby’s precious sleep is sacrificed just to not cause his little ass, then it is worth the loss.
Choose high-quality diapers to protect your baby’s ass. If your baby is wet and uncomfortable, he will cry to remind you to change in time.
When babies at the age of two or three are urinating at night, some of them already know how to call others, and some of them will naturally wake up when they have urine, and there is no need to wake them up.
4. Fix the sleeping position of the newborn baby. In the newborn’s birth, the infant remains in the fetal position and his limbs are still curled. In order to help him swallow some of the water and mucus solution in the birth canal, he should still take a low-lying position within 24 hours after birth.
The long-term supine position of the child’s head is deformed. The correct way is to often turn over for the baby. This time, the sleeping position should lie down next time and then lie down again, so that the baby’s head shape will look well.
After feeding, pay attention to do not lie on your side, so as not to spit milk into the trachea.
When lying on the left and right sides, be careful not to press the contour of the child’s ears forward, otherwise the auricles are often folded and easily deformed.
5, milk powder brewed too thick milk powder should not be too thick or too light.
The sodium content of milk is twice that of the human body. The more the milk concentration exceeds sodium, the infant’s blood sodium concentration is likely to increase, causing constipation, increased blood pressure and even convulsions, coma and other symptoms.
6. Feed solid food with a baby bottle and solid food with a small spoon.
Too many parents are afraid of trouble, or worry that the baby is eating too little. Fill solid food such as rice noodles into soft milk bottles to feed the baby.
This may increase your baby’s food intake, cause her to be overweight, and also lose her chance to practice chewing.
In fact, one of the important purposes of babies eating solid food is to let the baby understand the process of eating.
7. Feed the eggs prematurely. Feed only the yolks within 4 months.
Egg whites and films contain allergens, which are consumed prematurely by babies, which can easily cause allergic diseases such as eczema and urticaria.
Babies with milk moles and diaper rashes may experience repeated symptoms and aggravation after eating eggs.
8. Add premature foods at least prematurely. Wait at least 4 months before adding supplements.
Breast milk is the perfect natural nutrition and drink for babies. It provides all the nutrients your baby needs, including water and most vitamins.
Therefore, for infants less than 4 months old, pure milk replacement does not require additional water and other beverages.
The above-mentioned several issues about baby care are many mistakes that novice parents are prone to make mistakes. Parents must pay attention to some mistakes that are not conducive to the healthy growth and development of the baby. If the above errors exist, parents should make timely improvements.
