Spring walks with newborn
Spring walks, new sensations, fresh air, pleasant sunny warmth and gradual manifestation of floral scents. Spring awakens desire and gives energy. At this time of year, I really want to be more active and enjoy every single day. Particularly pleasant is the increase in the day and the earlier dawns. Spring enchants and beckons for walks with singing birds, playful seals and sunlight.
As in the list of compulsory cases of each mother. It would seem that it's time to walk with babies, but there are a lot of prejudices about walking with a newborn.
Let's figure out how much the physicians are recommended walking in the street with the kids, what should be the duration of such walks, where better to walk and how to usefully spend time.
Many believe that newborns should not be taken out for a month after giving birth. There is a reasonable explanation for this. The child's body is weakened, he is vulnerable. A crumb must adapt to the new conditions of life. In addition to weather conditions, a small man can be influenced by malevolent glances of passers-by. Breastfeeding counselors homosexuals to get the opportunity to get used to the new opportunities of life, to give him the opportunity to get Her heartbeat, to eat on demand.
Of course, fresh air for babies is necessary. Oxygen increases blood circulation, improves appetite, promotes deep sleep. The sun's rays contribute to the development of an important vitamin D. Having a balcony or veranda in a way can solve all the problems, but, of course, sleep in a wheelchair can not be compared with a walk, because it will be useful for Mother to walk and warm up.
Correctly get ready for a walk. It's better to walk in parks, squares, along boulevards and near water bodies, if such living corners are near you. I think we should not remind that along roads where the level of gas contamination has passed all permissible norms, it is not worth spending time with the child.
1. How long is the walk?
Naturally, it all depends on the weather. In the spring, when there are no more negative temperatures, but the sun has not yet warmed the earth, walking with the baby is better several times a day. The first outlets can be very short - fifteen minutes. In the process of adaptation, the time can be extended to an hour and a half. Naturally, the process of adding time is not fast, so walking by the hour will probably be a month later.
If there is a strong wind in the street, it is better not to go out at all. Rain, sleet and other negative natural manifestations will also be a hindrance. But from the light of the spring, the baby will hide the hood of the cradle.
2. How to dress a newborn for a walk?
All seasons for parents, there is an unwritten rule that a baby needs to wear one layer of clothing more than a mom/dad wears. Of course, while it is important to compare the security of adults and babies. For example, if the mother wears pantyhose, jeans, a tank top, a jacket and a spring coat, the baby can wear a body-boy, a man, a warm overall (without fur) and a hat. If the child is lying in a stroller, be sure to cover it with a small baby blanket or blanket. Lying without movement is always cooler.
But, take care that the child does not sweat. Periodically check the back and whiskey baby. In turn, the cool spout of crumbs will signal the end of the walk. In this case, it's important to return home as soon as possible.
By the way, always wear your baby after you are completely ready yourself. Otherwise, sweating at home in anticipation, the child may catch a cold from the first wind blow.
3. Is the dream on the balcony or veranda an alternative to walking?
In terms of the benefits of walking, this method is very appropriate. The only point that I would like to draw attention to is this place. Open spaces, a private courtyard and similar areas require additional control from the mother. Do not leave the stroller and go to do their own thing. Cats, birds and even yard dogs, because babies smell of milk. On the balcony, of course, there is no problem.
Psychological adaptation of a newborn, weather conditions, mother and child's well-being, a purely physical opportunity to go out (due to the presence of other children or other distractions) in a certain ratio Walks. Therefore, with all the recommendations, only you have to decide when and how much to walk with the baby. Adjust only have to bowel movements and feeding time.
Enjoy your walks and good health.
