Hygienic Tips to clean Ears, Eyes, Nose, Nails of your Child.

To clean your ears, eyes, nose or cut your nails, are the treatments that are practiced every day. When it comes to a baby, it is important to adopt basic hygiene rules and gently manipulate the child. Discover the essential gestures of daily care for your little one.

 

Learn to wash baby without apprehension.

Parents learn how to provide first aid to their baby at maternity, with the help of medical staff. But after back home, cleaning the umbilical cord or its ears can cause some apprehension. How to manipulate this small being so fragile without hurting him? Which products to use? There is no anxiety to have, the fears will disappear as you repeat with love and tenderness the same gestures every day.

 

1. Cleaning the umbilical cord.

During the pregnancy, the umbilical cord was the bond of life between you and your baby. This small little aesthetic stub called stump, remains hooked to the navel between 5 and 15 days after the birth. It is systematically cleaned after bathing and exchange (if the cord has been in contact with urine or stools) to avoid possible infections and to facilitate healing.

From the base to the end.

First of all, it is essential to wash your hands thoroughly, a necessary condition for any manipulation of a baby (change his diaper, give him the bottle, etc.). Once the baby is lying on the changing table, have a sterile compress soaked in antiseptic (the one you were advised at the maternity ward). Then pass the compress from the base to the end. Fold the compress and repeat the action until the cord is completely disinfected. The latter will fall on its own.

Disinfect the scar.

The disinfection of the scar is prolonged one week after the fall of the cord. And never mix two different antiseptics, they may react together.

2. Clean baby’s ears.

For cleaning a baby’s ears, you should never use conventional cotton swabs! Choose bigger cotton stalks, so that you do not go too far into the ear canal and touch the eardrum.

Avoid sudden movements.

As for the roof and the back part of the ear, it is advisable to clean the residue with soap and to get rid of the small fluff with a cotton disc soaked in water. Be careful, your baby’s ears are very fragile, so make sure your little one does not move abruptly, holding the head firmly while you clean the ear canal.

3. Cleaning the baby’s Nose.

Before 2 years, a baby does not know how to blow her nose, he needs a little help. There are several methods for him to cleanse the mucus. The simplest is the use of a coiled hydrophilic cotton in the form of a small rocket. Insert it into the nostril and remove the mucus. Effective and rapid, this method unfortunately does not remove all the microsites responsible for the viruses that proliferate in the otorhinolaryngological sphere (ENT). For him to clean the nose in depth, it is preferable to opt for the physiological serum or the fly-baby.

Use physiological saline.

Sometimes it is possible to unclog a baby’s nose only with physiological serum. It exists in aerosol or in small ampoules (the aerosol better dissolves the mucus). Clean the nose in the morning and, of course, when you see that the mucus irritates it to breathe. Lengthen your baby on the changing table with your head turned to one side. Inject half a bulb into the nostril that is up or spray if you use an aerosol. Repeat the gesture for the other side. The baby sneezes in general afterwards, which allows him to evacuate the mucus.

The baby fly.

Although very little appreciated by babies, the fly-baby is another possibility for him to clean the nose. It consists of a tip, a tube and a head that fits the baby’s nose. With the mouthpiece, gently inhale the mucus. In the head of the tube, a filter limits the suction pressure and retains the mucus. If they do not drain well, add a little physiological serum to the nostrils, and a few minutes later, inhale again.

4. Clean baby’s Eyes.

Taking care of the baby’s eyes is important because toddlers produce much more mucus than adults. That’s why they have to be cleaned every day, in the morning, when baby wakes up with his eyes glued.



Remove the mucus.

Take a sterile compress through the ends and fold it like a small parachute. Then, soak it with saline and pass it on your baby’s eye, from the center to the outside, to eliminate the mucus. This action prevents infections of the inner membrane of the eye. Caution: always use one eye compress once, not one for both eyes to avoid possible contamination.

5. Cutting baby Nails.

You can cut your baby’s nails from the age of a month. Keeping them short is very important, above all for its safety, as toddlers scratch themselves with their hands. Use special baby scissors with rounded tips.

Choosing the Right Time.

For a baby, these gestures are not pleasant, so choose a moment when the baby is calm and rested: after the feeding or during feeding, or after the nap. Some parents do it even when their child is asleep.

Nails straight.

Sit your baby on your lap, back to you. The scissors must be in the hand that keeps the baby quiet. In the other, his little hand is extended flat. With the thumb, isolate the nail that you will cut. Cut it straight. It is not worthwhile to round the edges, it would require more time and dexterity!

It is important to think about disinfecting the scissors as often as possible.
