Covering the stroller can seriously suffocate! Especially in hot weather

The People’s Daily issued a warning in the summer of 2019: As a result, three years have passed, and this scene can still be seen everywhere in the community and on the streets in summer: the feelings of parents are understandable: one is that the epidemic is not completely over now, so The purpose is to make a "mobile isolation station" for the baby; the other is to go out on the street to be afraid that the child will be bitten by mosquitoes, exposed to the rain, and exposed to the sun. There are quite a few patterns of such "protective covers", cloth covers, transparent covers, gauze covers... and some are directly covered with a whole piece of cloth on the cart: ▲The picture comes from @istock ▲The picture comes from @Amozon According to the observation of my colleague, Sister Fork : "Walking in the community, every few minutes, you can see parents pushing baby carriages, children wearing bigger masks inside, and layers of masks on the outside, I feel bored when I look at them!" That's right! , is the word - muffled muffled muffled! Don't think it's okay to be bored for a while, you may not realize that it is this word that turns the so-called "protective cover" into a "big steamer" that hurts children. Today, I must emphasize these two things to you again: don’t add protective covers to the stroller! Do not wear masks to children under the age of 1! Do not cover the stroller arbitrarily! How stuffy can it get when the cart is wrapped (covered)? The Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet did some experiments: On a warm day, they placed strollers on a local sunny street between 11.30am and 1pm. Stroller without guard, temperature reaches 22ºC. For the next 30 minutes with the thin lid in place, the heat in the cart has risen to 34ºC. After an hour, the temperature reached 37ºC. We also did an experiment to simulate daily behavior: we prepared a stroller, a thin blanket, and a toy doll (to imitate the human body, we put a warm hot water bottle not exceeding 37ºC on the doll.) Mother A Ling pushed The baby went to the small garden downstairs to let out the wind. He felt that the sun was a little dry and the wind was a little strong. At this time, the temperature in the cart was 29.4 degrees: A Ling was afraid that the baby would be exposed to the sun, so she naturally covered the cart with a small blanket that she carried with her to ensure that the baby would not be exposed to the sun. After only about 20 minutes, we saw the temperature display: the temperature in the car has reached 33.1 degrees: that is to say, in a short period of time, the temperature in the car rose by nearly 4 degrees after the thin blanket was added. You know, this does not include the breathing factor of the real child, and our blanket is still a thin cotton white blanket that is not too heat-absorbing and has better air permeability. If it is replaced by a real child + a more airtight cover, the temperature in the car should be will rise faster. It's not enough to cover the blanket, and the thin transparent cover and gauze cover are not enough? Researchers in Sweden concluded that hanging anything on a stroller, even the thinnest blanket, could create stove-like heat inside the car, reducing air circulation. Once the heat becomes unbearable, the child is likely to suffer from heat stroke or even life-threatening. The transparent mask has worse air permeability, strong sealing, and will produce some bad substances due to high temperature. If the bad substances are inhaled by the baby, they will be added to the blacklist. But there are always some unavoidable situations where you have to push the baby out. In fact, if you pay attention to these points, the baby will be much safer: 1. Do not add a closed cover to the stroller, the airtight material will be more dangerous; Allow air to circulate around your baby. Umbrellas can be used for shade. 2. When traveling in high temperature, pay attention to more frequent hydration for the baby (give more breast milk before 6 months, and pay attention to properly replenishing drinking water after 6 months). 3. Check your baby every 10 minutes or so, feeling the back of your baby's belly or neck (it's normal for your baby's hands and feet to get cold). If your baby's skin is hot or sweaty, they are too hot. Take your child to a cool and ventilated room. 4. Avoid pushing the stroller to go out between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm in summer, and be more careful during the sweltering heat. Do not go out if it is too hot or too dry. 5. Never leave a child alone in a stroller, just like never leave a child alone in a cart, remember. Don't make a fuss. The physiological characteristics of babies are very different from ours, and many bodily functions are not fully developed. Jia Dacheng, a senior emergency expert at the Beijing Emergency Center, said in an interview with People's Daily Online: Compared with adults, infants and young children have less developed thermoregulation systems and higher basal metabolic rates. heat dissipation. Once the air circulation in the stroller is blocked and the temperature rises, the balance between heat production and heat dissipation of the baby's body will be broken, and the baby will be prone to heat stroke, and even coma or even death in severe cases. To borrow Lao Tzu's words: "A child is not a fish, how can you know the joy of a fish?", our version is: "You are not a baby, you don't know how hot and stuffy the baby is in it." Don't wear it on a baby under 1 year old Face mask! In addition to pushing the cart, recently, there is another action closely related to "boring": Do you still remember this hot search before: Seeing that everyone is praising the cuteness of the baby, the cake mother is really anxious and angry: the baby is full of mouth Breathe! Although I know that everyone wants to give the baby complete protection, the N95 with strong protection has the worst breathability. Even if it is worn for an older child, it is necessary to check the child's breathing from time to time, and take it off every 2 hours or so to rest for a while. It is not recommended for babies under 1 year old. The reasons are: ◆ The baby's respiratory system is immature, and it is easy to feel suffocated and breathless after wearing a mask. ◆ What's worse is that the baby can't express his feelings. After wearing a mask, he can't speak when he is uncomfortable, and he can only breathe with his mouth wide open. It is obviously a signal for help, but it is still regarded as cute and cute by everyone? ? ? Cake mom is really anxious and distressed. You know, the baby is suffocated and hypoxic, ranging from wheezing to suffocation! The most injured is the baby's brain. The brain is very sensitive to oxygen. A little lack of oxygen will cause inability to concentrate, memory loss, and fatigue. If the lack of oxygen continues for a long time, the nerve cells will slowly die, unable to regenerate, affecting the baby's brain development! So, stop wearing masks for babies under 1! The National Health Commission has made it clear before that children under the age of 1 are not suitable for wearing masks. Source: CCTV How to protect without wearing a mask? In fact, for little babies, the best protection method is - don't! go! people! many! of! land! square! At the same time, no matter how young the baby is, you should also pay attention to washing your hands frequently. Washing your hands frequently is more protective than wearing a mask. Parents, by taking precautions outside the home, cleaning and hand hygiene at home can also indirectly protect children. I hope everyone can pay more attention to these little things and accompany their children to spend a safe and happy summer.
