No one is left out of the clutches of Omicron. Everyone from the elderly to the newborns are being infected. Because of the immature immune system, children under one year of age are at greater risk of contracting covid than adults. Although Omicron still has a very low mortality rate. Mild to mild to moderate illnesses have been reported. The little ones get sick but get well in 2-3 days. Yet resistance must be built first. To keep a young family member healthy, they need to take some urgent measures with themselves and their baby.
First of all, parents must wear a mask when handling a child as a primary care. They need to wash their hands frequently. Make sure the parents have taken only 2 doses of Kovid. The baby also needs to be given a flu shot.
According to the doctor, parents must keep a safe distance from their newborns. Stay away from the baby if you have symptoms like cough, runny nose, sore throat, throat infection, body aches, fever and fatigue.
Normal and proper ventilation of the house is necessary to protect small children from covid infection. Keep the baby in a room where ventilation is normal. Avoid going in or around a crowd of relatives with the baby. Remember, Omicron is highly contagious. Therefore, special care must be taken with the health of the child.
According to pediatricians, do not ignore any symptoms like cough, vomiting, fever in your young child. A pediatrician should be consulted in an emergency.
Babies can never be guinea pigs. So do not play with the health of the child with any intelligence or medicine made by your brain. Do not give any medicine to the child by yourself. As a result, the condition of the child’s body may become more deplorable. Never take risks with the health of the newborn.
According to experts, no evidence of covid infection during breastfeeding has been found so far. Therefore, Kovid positive mothers should consult a doctor before breastfeeding their baby.
Here are some things parents should keep in mind when caring for a newborn.
– Wear a mask while leaning around the baby
– Wash your hands frequently.
– Complete the covid vaccine. Give the baby a flu shot.
– Never take the child away from public gatherings and crowds of relatives.
– If there is a cowardly positive person in the house, do not go near him, stay in a separate room with the child.
