   Fennel rate of 1: 1000. The child may be given during the day a few teaspoons of water, but usually start with two - three tablespoons per day, reaching up to six and checking the child's response to this drug. If, after receiving dill water on the baby's skin rash, receiving it must be stopped immediately. But usually dill water is well tolerated, and after 15 minutes the child begin to withdraw gases, after which he will be safely breastfeed, bottle or just sleep.

Plantex available in powder and diluted with water according to the instructions. Both of these drugs cause an increase in the motor activity of the intestine with the simultaneous removal of muscle spasms of the intestine and therefore gases begin to move freely through the intestines.

Rare newborn complete without dill water or Plantex. But sometimes these drugs at the pharmacy are not available, in this case, you can prepare the infusion of fennel home.

To prepare dill water teaspoon dried dill seeds Dill: benefits and harms of fragrant spices  Dill: benefits and harms of fragrant spices
   to pour 200 ml of boiling water, leave for an hour, drain, refill to the original level of boiled water and drink the child. If the child is not right to taste some water, it can be sweetened with sugar syrup (but not in any way dry with sugar, this will increase bloating). Of course, this infusion is much less effective than dill water purchased at a pharmacy (where it is made in a special way).

In order to enhance and accelerate the action of dill water in the baby's tummy can put heated, folded several times a diaper. For the procedure required two diapers, one heated and the other is on the baby's tummy.

But sometimes this does not work, the gases do not depart, the baby continues to worry. In this case will the vapor tube of soft rubber - it can be bought at a pharmacy. Venting tube boiled, lubricated with petroleum jelly, is inserted into the anus of the child, is moving a few centimeters inside and her child depart from the intestine gases. If gases other than the baby, and even constipation, then he needs to do a cleansing enema. For newborns suitable rubber spray 50 ml. He also is boiled, then it is typed boiled water, then tip up and press the bottom of the bottle to release air, lubricated with petroleum jelly and insert the tip into the anus with the situation of the child on the left side with legs bent at the hips and knees. The water is introduced slowly, only during inhalation, a slight pressure.

Young mother with time realizes that no hopeless situations, and it is almost always able to help her newborn child.

   Child (feces, urine, sweat, secretions of the sebaceous glands) are the perfect breeding ground for pathogenic microflora. Opportunistic she called because under certain conditions (for example, at too rapid growth) can cause disease. Therefore, if a child does not bathe every day and did not wash away after each act of defecation, its skin irritation appear first, and then it will join purulent infection - this is very dangerous.

But too zealous not worth it: the skin of a newborn baby has its protective properties that can not be broken. For example, it is covered with a very thin fatty film which protects the skin from the introduction of bacteria. If the child's daily wash with soap and water, the film can be dissolved and then the skin becomes vulnerable to infection. Therefore special facilities for bathing the baby (eg, foam) should be used no more than 2 times a week.

Daily bathing - it is also an excellent tempering procedures. Contact with water, stir in water and massage performed mom while swimming (soaping skin, light stroking and splashing on the baby water) are an excellent tool that allows a newborn child to adapt to a new world, get used to it and even learn how to resist various influences environment.
