Newborn baby bottle: danger or need
Before giving birth, future parents try to buy everything that is needed to care for the child after discharge from the hospital if they are not superstitious and do not plan to acquire everything necessary only after the fact of birth. You need not forget to buy a lot: a bath, a changing table, a crib, diapers, bottles, a water thermometer, and a first aid kit. A warmer for a newborn can be rightfully included in this list. Why is it needed, and what precautions should be observed?
At once it is necessary to say that the usual rubber hot water bottle, which is filled with water, is a certain danger. To avoid injury to the child, you do not need to add too hot water, the temperature should be comfortable. You can not fill it to the brim, enough water is enough. Before you put it to the baby, you need to check if the baby's warmer is sealed tightly and wrap it in a dense fabric. In no event can you use electric models to warm the baby's legs - just to heat the crib.
Recently, various modifications of heating devices have been invented which do not present any danger in use. Particular attention deserves a toy-heater for newborns. Its price is about 600 rubles, the usual cost is four times cheaper. What is it? It is made of natural materials, in appearance a usual soft toy dog, duck or any other animal, which is filled with millet and lavender petals. It's easy to use: you just need to warm up it for a few minutes in the microwave. Then give the baby or put in a crib. This warm toy will remain so for several hours, spreading the gentle scent of lavender.
An excellent option can serve as a salt pad for a newborn. It is also completely safe and made of non-toxic materials. The shell is a plastic bag of increased strength and tightness. Inside there is a special solution of salt, which is used in medicine. No harm can be caused to a person when used correctly. On the contrary, this is a guarantee that there will be no overheating and burn.
Many mothers believe that such a salt pad for a newborn should be in every home. They are available in various forms and are designed to treat and prevent a large number of diseases. They also perform the usual functions of warming the kids during sleep or walking on the street. To start its work, it is enough to press the activator floating inside the solution and wait until the salt crystals spread from it. Immediately feel the heat. After a few minutes, the fully crystallized hot water bottle needs to be crushed in the hands, like a dough, and put where it is required. Such a baby's warmer (for newborns in particular) easily takes the contours of any part of the body. For a child under three years old, it is better to wrap it in cloth. And for the youngest, you must keep the distance from the body at least 5 cm.
