Compulsory Course for Baby Safety: Safety Protection for Babies Aged 0 ~ 3 Months

The baby grows up day by day and all aspects are developing little by little. They explore the world in their own way, but they do not know that the danger is around them. At this time, they need their parents to know more about safety precautions and be truly prepared for emergencies.

There are many potential safety hazards,

    The baby sleeps on his stomach or side, which is likely to cause asphyxia due to mouth and nose blockage. After lying down and feeding at night, the mother fell asleep, which may cause galactorrhea and blockage of nose and mouth. Holding the baby with hot drink and hot rice in hand, accidentally scalding the baby; The baby fell from the rocking chair, crib and diaper changing table. When holding the baby, the caretaker slipped and the older child threw objects, etc.

What should babies under three months pay attention to?

Step 1 Protect the spine

The spine of the newborn cannot support the head and body yet. When holding the baby, you should hold the baby in your arms with both hands and hold the baby’s head, neck, trunk and buttocks, so that the baby’s upper limbs bend in front of the chest and the lower limbs are frog legs, instead of the upper limbs being backed behind and the lower limbs stretching straight.

2. Prevent asphyxia caused by nasal blockage

The newborn’s breathing is very shallow, even a small handkerchief may affect his breathing, and the baby will not remove the objects covered on his face with his hands.

Therefore, nothing can be placed around the baby, such as plush toys, too soft bedding, small pillows or towels, thermos bottles, water basins filled with water, ropes and other dangerous articles, especially plastic films, and try not to let long-haired pets approach the sleeping baby. Be sure to put the baby in the crib to sleep and pull up and buckle the bed railings.

    Turn the sheets under the mattress and lay them flat. The small quilt is covered under the baby’s armpit, not at the neck. When letting the baby exercise prone position, be sure to help the baby turn his head to one side so that his nose and mouth are fully exposed, and the parents’ sight cannot leave the baby for a second.

Before the baby cannot lie prone and look up for a long time, do not let the baby take the prone position or lateral position to sleep, so as not to block the respiratory tract and cause asphyxia.

3. Safety Details of Holding Baby

When holding the baby, never take dangerous objects with the other hand, such as hot water, knives and forks, hard paper, lit candles, etc., nor do you hold the baby to light gas, pour hot water or cook.

Do not put the baby in the back brace. It is recommended to put the baby in the front brace to ensure that the baby’s face can be seen at all times and breathing difficulties can be found in time. It is not recommended to hold the newborn with the help of the brace.

When carrying the baby around on the ground, make sure the ground is clean and free of water stains and obstacles. Once the foot slips or is caught by obstacles, due to the lack of protective support of the upper limbs, the fall will be very heavy, and even there is a danger of throwing the baby out.

The shoes worn should also be anti-skid with the feet and soles, especially when bathing the baby in the toilet, more attention should be paid to anti-skid.
