Children's moisture protection
Every spring, the rain is continuous and the air is humid. Especially in the south, because the humidity is too heavy, clothes often do not dry, and water drops can leak out from the walls and floors. In such an environment, people feel uncomfortable from the inside out, and children are more prone to fatigue and sickness. If you don't pay attention to it, your baby's delicate body is likely to be attacked by "moisture". Therefore, it is necessary to have a detoxification and "dampness" action.
What exactly is "wet"? Where does the baby's moisture come from? What is the cause of the baby's "dampness"? Many mothers want to understand these problems. The editor collected relevant knowledge about babies' "dampness" as follows:
The so-called dampness, which is commonly referred to as water dampness, is divided into external and internal dampness. External dampness is caused by humid weather, wading in the rain, or home dampness, which causes external water to invade the human body; internal dampness is a pathological product that is often related to digestive function.
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the spleen has the function of "transporting and transforming water and dampness". If the body is weak with indigestion or overeating, and eating too much greasy and sweet food, the spleen cannot "transform and transform" and "water and dampness will stop"; and People with spleen deficiency are also prone to invading external dampness, and external dampness often obstructs the spleen and stomach to make dampness grow from the inside, so the two are both independent and related.
Continuous rainy days are the most rampant period for the reproduction of various molds, mites and other microorganisms. Some people with qi deficiency and phlegm are more likely to cause asthma. Humidity increases in spring, which is a season for babies to get sick frequently. Most of the diseases in babies are mainly respiratory infections, including colds, tonsillitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea.
In addition, babies eat fruit uncontrollably, eat mildew-prone foods, or do not pay attention to reasonable nutrition, these are the main reasons for the baby's "dampness" disease.
Symptoms of "moisture" in children
Whether there is "moisture" in the baby's body, there are obvious symptoms, mothers can judge from the following aspects.
1. The baby is not in good spirits when waking up
If every morning when you get up, you see that your baby is extremely tired, can't sleep, can't get enough energy, or is not refreshed like wearing a wet suit, and people are too lazy to move... Then it must be wet in the body. NS.
Second, the baby has abnormal stools
After the baby goes to the toilet, you can observe the stool. Is it stuck to the toilet? A tank of water still doesn't clean. If it is inconvenient to observe the toilet, you can also observe the toilet paper. If it is normal, one or two pieces of paper will be enough.
In addition, the color and shape of the stool can also help determine whether there is moisture in the body. Normal stool is in the shape of a golden banana, but few people now have this healthy stool. When the body is wet, the color of the stool will turn blue, soft and unformed, and there will always be a feeling of dirty drainage. Over time, the toxins produced by the stool accumulate in the body, causing all kinds of diseases.
Three, the baby's tongue is rough and yellow
"The tongue is the seedling of the heart, and it is the waiting outside of the spleen." The tongue can sensitively reflect the baby's physical condition. When cleaning your baby's mouth, you can carefully observe the baby's tongue to see the color and thickness of the tongue coating.
The healthy tongue is light red and moist, with a layer of tongue coating, thin white and quiet, with moderate dryness and wetness, not slippery and not dry. If the tongue does not meet these indicators, it means that there is a problem with the body's function. If the tongue coating is white and thick and looks slippery and moist, it means that there is cold in the body; if the tongue coating is rough or thick, yellow and greasy, it means that there is dampness and heat in the body; if the tongue is red and no coating, it means that the body is already hot enough It hurts to a degree.
Fourth, the baby's appetite is reduced, and the appetite is not good
From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, the heavy moisture in spring causes the spleen and stomach to recede. Therefore, people will feel bad appetite and loss of appetite. The noodles, rice, and porridge were changed to feed, and children were reluctant to eat.
