Fun without injuries: how to celebrate the New Year without problems
During the holidays, especially in the winter, the work is dramatically increased.. And the problem is not only in the snow and.
How to make the holiday not darkened by anything - in our material.
It would seem that during the holidays all the adults are at home: both mom and dad and grandparents. But preparations for the New Year take up a lot of time from adults, and the apartment is becoming more and more dangerous, falling, breaking and hurting a child.
The feeling that the holiday is close, reduces the sense of control, instills in adults the carelessness and euphoria. And from a glass or other champagne, vigilance falls and unwarranted optimism is infused.
Universal rule for parents during holidays -set a kind of duty. Someone alone is always a certain period of time with the child, not being distracted by other worries, then you change.
Believe me, this is easier and more correct than reproaching yourself for carelessness, but no one is immune from accidents.
Scratches and cuts
Doctors have a peculiar hit parade of items that traumatize children for the holidays. In the first place - broken glasses and Christmas decorations, on the second - open cans and on the third knives, which young cooks try to chop vegetables into a salad. Palms and fingers are affected, less often - feet.
If the child is injured, wash the wound with cool and better boiled water. Then treat with 3% hydrogen peroxide to kill the germs. Lubricate the skin near the wound with brilliant green or iodine.
If the wound bleeds, it doesn't matter, so the blood washes away dirt and bacteria that have fallen into a cut. If it is not possible to stop the blood for a long time, raise the hand of the child up and in this position, re-wound the wound.
In the first place, thermal problems - hot dishes on the table. A child may inadvertently pull a cup of tea, hot sauce or another dish, it will turn over and the baby will get burns.
On the second place of the pedestal of danger is our favorite sparklers. They are able to easily set fire to the airy dresses of little princesses and snowflakes, often made from flammable synthetics. Also, their sparks easily ignite the paper.
Use Bengal lights can only be on the street, keep them on an outstretched hand (and it is best not to give children under 5 years of age), in any case not to bring to the face in order to avoid burns to the eyes. If the festival's scenario includes the launching of fireworks, fireworks and firecrackers, it's best to leave the children at home, let them look at the action from the window.
If the child does get burned, first cool the affected area with running cold water and do it for 10-15 minutes - such actions will reduce pain and reduce the likelihood of pain shock. After that, treat the burn with a healing spray and no greasy ointments and oils!
After treatment, apply a sterile dressing on the wound, or at least a clean cloth, and as soon as possible to a doctor. If blisters form on the wound, do not pierce them in any way so as not to carry the infection!
When a cheerful carapace plays in a salon in a small apartment or jumps from a chair to a chair, there is a high probability that it will fall and hurt. Most often - it is not dangerous. If the injury is not strong enough to apply a cold and crumb will jump again about their business.
But there are cases and more serious, for example, playing, the child can pinch the door with his fingers or hit his head, ribs, chest against the corner of the furniture or wall.
To reduce the hemorrhage to the injury site, be sure to apply a cold: in this case it does not hurt to always keep a liter bottle of water in the freezer. Also, keep ready anesthetizing non-steroid ointments, and if you see that the place of the bruise has swollen, the baby has become quiet and constantly complains of pain - it is urgent to the doctor, it may have a fracture.
Do you think that the wound, burn or bruise of the baby is not too serious? If possible, show the crumbs to your doctor, even after the holidays, even if the kid has already forgotten about his traumatic adventure.
Poisoning and Allergies
During the New Year holidays, food allergies can occur if the child eats more than he could digest. Control the amount and combination of foods that go into the baby’s mouth.
If the problem is the quality of the food, the child is poisoning, diarrhea or vomiting has begun, be sure to maintain the amount of fluid in the body to avoid dehydration. To avoid poisoning just do not give children adult food!
Pediatrician EO Komarovsky tells: “Signs of a critical lack of fluid in the body: a child cries without tears; there is no urine for more than 6 hours.Also due to dehydration the temperature may rise. The best assistant and obligatory component of the home medicine chest are solutions for reradic rehydration. Juice or just water will not help, but to restore the water balance in the body until someone went to the pharmacy, a decoction of raisins can. ”
Remember that the children's New Year, it's not food and salutes, but positive emotions, attention and games.
