The rains not only bring the much-needed relief from the heat but also many woes in the form of diseases that could trouble your child.
Health problems, especially in babies, are always on the rise during the monsoon season. So, how do you ensure your little one remains safe and healthy during this season?
In the article, ‘Monsoon Care For Babies’, published in being The Parent.com, the common illnesses that affect babies during monsoon are viral infections, blocked nose, congested chest, muscle pain, etc. Here are few tips that might help:
- Maintain food hygiene: Always give your baby fresh food and boiled water to drink (the water should be cooled). Make sure you wash your baby’s feeding utensils thoroughly.
- Clothes: Dress your baby in loose cotton clothes that absorb sweat as it can get humid during monsoon. Damp clothes can lead to fungal infections. Long sleeve clothes can be worn to avoid mosquito bites.
- Keep your home clean: Ensure there is no stagnant water in and around the house. Get the drains cleaned regularly and try to keep your surroundings from becoming a breeding place for mosquitoes.
- Avoid the rains: Try not to go out with your baby if it is raining. The monsoons cause the temperature to go down suddenly and your baby might catch a cold.
According to Z News, one way to protect your little one from mosquitoes and mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue, malaria, and chikungunya would be to apply mosquito repellents on your baby’s skin before he goes to sleep and during play.
