Home care priorities for diarrhea babies
Point 1 Early replenishment of lost body water Many mothers rush to the hospital as soon as their baby has diarrhea.
In fact, most babies are slightly dehydrated at the beginning of diarrhea.
Under the guidance of a doctor, treatment can be done at home.
This is not only timely and convenient, but also reduces a lot of hassles, which is very beneficial to the baby’s recovery.
So, the first thing the mother needs to do is to determine whether the baby is slightly dehydrated.
Slightly dehydrated babies have thirst, dry lips, less urine than usual, yellow color, and show irritability and crying.
Mom can choose one of the following rehydration methods: refill with homemade sugar brine, that is, add 1 to 5000 ml of warm water.
75 grams of refined salt and 10 grams of sugar, 1.
75 grams of refined salt is equivalent to half of the beer bottle cap, and 10 grams of white sugar is equivalent to 2 tsp.
75 grams of refined salt; refill with ORS (oral rehydration salt) prescribed by the doctor. The ORS rehydration salt is a prepared dry powder.
Then, in the first 4 hours, give 20?
40 ml of liquid.
Since then, take it orally at any time, as much as you can drink.
Can babies under 2 years old every 1?
A small spoon is given in 2 minutes, and older babies can drink in small cups.
If the baby vomits, wait for 10 minutes and then feed it slowly; once the baby’s eyelid edema appears, indicating that there is some excess fluid, drink boiled water or breast milk temporarily.

Point 2 Give your baby plenty of food to prevent malnutrition. Traditional diarrhea treatment is called fasting your child’s diet.
However, this hinders the body’s nutritional supplementation and is prone to malnutrition.
It is now generally accepted that diarrhea-free babies should not be fasted, but the principle of requiring a small amount of extra meals and eating at least 6 times a day.
Breast-fed babies continue to eat breast milk, but the mother’s diet should be lower in fat, otherwise diarrhea will worsen; babies who are artificially fed within 6 months can drink milk as usual;Baby, you can eat some digestible foods, such as gruel, rotten noodles, minced fish, a little vegetable puree, fresh fruit juice or banana puree, until 2 weeks after the diarrhea stops.
Point 3: The baby’s small butt should be treated with extra care. Because the baby’s defecation frequency has increased a lot, it will continually pollute the small butt.
Moreover, the feces discharged during diarrhea irritate and fracture the skin.
Therefore, every time the baby defecates, the mother should wash the small butt with warm water, especially pay attention to the cleanliness of the anus and perineum. It is best to use a soft and clean cotton diaper and change it frequently to avoid red hip and urinary tract infections.
If the small butt is red, it should be exposed to the air to dry naturally, and then apply some diaper rash cream.
Point 4: Observe the baby’s condition closely. If the baby’s irritability is aggravated, the cardia and eye sockets are sunken, there is less tears when crying, and the mouth looks dry and dry. Also, when you pick up the skin of the thigh and immediately release the hand, the skin foldsThe flat time is more than 2 seconds.

If the baby has a fever and blood in the stool, take the baby to the hospital for diagnosis and treatment.
