Why Should You Take Care of a Baby In Winter Season?
Newborn babies need to be cared for and nurtured until they become self-sustaining. They must take extra care in winter because a decrease in temperature triggers processes in the body that keep the vital organs working well. The body then uses a large portion of its energy to maintain its temperature, which diverts it from other areas. As a result, the immune system of the body is affected. Winter is a time when microbes and viruses flourish and find hosts to infect. Due to decreased immunity, babies become easy targets and their chances of falling ill increase.
Tips To Take Care of Newborn Baby In Winter Season
1.Important To Layer Up, But Not Too Much
We bundle our children up when it is cold outside so they are protected from the elements. Wearing multiple layers of clothing for your baby is the easiest thing to do. In general, newborns need one more layer of clothing than adults. Put your hand in your baby’s clothing to see if he seems hot. Take off one layer if it’s too much. If you see a small heat rash from overheating, treat it with a dab of hydrocortisone for a few days. It is important not to use hydrocortisone for long periods of time since it is a medicine.
