If you are in the puerperal period of this summer vacation, Congratulations, your baby is in the beginning of the school season and will not have to wait another year for school. However, this summer is extremely hot. Do you feel the same with wood? Such hot weather is really bitter for the new mothers in the puerperium. But don’t worry too much about the new mums. I’ve collected some tips to help the new mums refresh their puerperium and spend the summer safely.
▍ cool puerperal period in summer, use air conditioner correctly
The puerpera cannot blow to the wind, otherwise it is easy to fall into the moon disease, so some people think that the puerpera is not suitable for air conditioning. How can I do without air conditioning on a hot day? In many parts of the country, if you don’t blow the air conditioner, aren’t you afraid of the new mother’s heat? In fact, as long as you don’t directly face the blowing and avoid the air outlet, it’s no problem to turn on the air conditioner in the puerperal period in summer.
New mother blowing air conditioning, in addition to avoiding the air outlet, the air conditioning temperature should not be too low, 26-28 ℃ is appropriate. When opening the air conditioner, pay attention to regular air change. Open the door and windows every other time to let the air in the room renew. Especially when the weather is cooler in the morning and evening, close the air conditioner properly, open the doors and windows to let the new mother breathe the fresh air.
In addition, if the air conditioner is on for a long time in the room, the air will be dry. You can use the humidifier to increase the humidity of the room, which will make you feel more comfortable.
The puerperal period cannot blow to the wind, even if the reheat cannot directly blow to the wind, especially the joints, do not get cold. Therefore, it is suggested that postpartum mothers should also wear long sleeved shirts and trousers to cover the joints in summer. If it’s really hot, the air conditioning temperature can be slightly adjusted to a low point, but avoid the fan’s wind.
In addition, it is not recommended that mothers sleep directly on the bamboo mat in summer after childbirth, because when the air conditioner is on, the bamboo mat will be particularly cold. If the new mother sleeps, it is easy to catch cold when her waist and abdomen contact the bamboo mat directly.
▍ in summer, the puerperal period is fresh, and personal hygiene cannot be sloppy
Under the influence of traditional ideas, some mothers really endure childbirth for a month in summer. Oh，My God！ In a hot day, if you don’t wash your hair for a month, you may be sending out sour odor all the time. Does it mean that even the baby can smell the odor and often cry?
Before the poor living conditions, when the puerperium shampoo afraid of cold, so do not let the mother shampoo. But the living conditions of modern people are much better. As long as the moon washes her hair, pay attention to care, dry it as soon as possible after washing, and don’t blow the wind. It’s all right. If you don’t wash your hair, it’s hard to itch your head, and it’s oily, dandruff and bacteria. It’s bad for your baby’s health to take care of her every day when she’s dirty.
If the physical strength of the mother in childbirth recovers smoothly, she can take a shower three days after childbirth. But if it’s a C-section, you have to wait for the wound to heal before taking a shower. Before that, you can use warm water to wipe yourself. Maternal shower time should not be too long, 5-10 minutes; water temperature should not be too cold, even in hot summer can not be cool fast; pay attention to shower do not bath.
Clean the privacy
If the vagina wound of the mother who gave birth is swollen and painful, she can use 95% alcohol wet compress. Generally, the wound will be healed in a few days. There will be lochia after childbirth, whether it is a normal delivery or a caesarean section. Before lochia is cleaned, use a sanitary towel or pad to change it frequently. In addition, wash the vulva with warm water every day to prevent infection.
