Overheated or was cold?

Besides food problems, considerable danger is constituted for the kid by abundance of direct sunshine which excitingly affect nervous system of small children. Their thermal exchange is not perfect therefore the overheat comes quickly and is transferred hard. Besides, skin of kids very gentle, sensitive therefore on it quickly there are burns. First they can and be not noticed, but several hours later after stay, excessive for the child, on the sun skin reddens, temperature increases, the kid becomes whimsical, cries, refuses food. In such cases it is necessary to ask for medical care urgently.

If during walk the child is uneasy

, greedy drinks, and on skin it had small red specks - a potnitsa, so it overheated, and it should be dressed at once easier. In summer day the kid after half a year can be left on the street in romper suit and easy cotton shirts, in a shadow - without headdress, and on the sun - it is obligatory in an easy light hat. It has enough reflected sunshine which fall on it when it is under trees or a canopy.

It is quite possible that today you should dress the kid not as yesterday, and even during one walk or a dream on air to replace to it a jacket more than once and to cover with a flannelette diaper.

we Become tempered!

Summer - the most convenient time for a hardening which has to enter daily life of the child with the same need, as washing. Do not think that the kid should be accustomed to some Spartan, severe conditions - it is about systematic and gradual increase of resistance of an organism to catarrhal diseases, strengthening of its protective forces, increase of its adaptive opportunities.

the softest tempering procedure - air bathtubs. If you already saw off them in the room, now it is possible and it is necessary to transfer this procedure to open air. Begin in warm windless day at air temperature not lower than 22 - 23 degrees. The child can be undressed to a belt or to leave absolutely golenky for several minutes. Increasing duration of such bathtub each 3 days for two minutes, bring it to half an hour. Provide to the undressed kid in a children`s arena or on a blanket freedom of movements - let creeps, sits down, stands up, potters with toys. At the end of summer you carry out such procedures and in more cool days and if it is pleasant to the child, it is possible to increase also their duration.

water has the Fine tempering effect. Damp rubdowns and douches are very effective. It is necessary to rub off the child the terry mitten moistened in water and slightly wrung out. At first only hands, from fingers to a shoulder, in three days also a breast, then - also a back, and, at last, - all body. Water temperature at the beginning - 32 degrees, and days through 7 - 10 reduce it each three days by 1 degree, having finished to 27.

in the Winter of children after half a year can bathe every other day, but in the summer let the baby takes a bath daily: water temperature - 35 - 36 degrees, and for douche - 34 degrees. Rubdown is better to do in the morning, and a bathtub - before a night dream.
