Winter puerperium, the most afraid of cold, and the new mother after childbirth weak body, poor resistance, the most difficult to resist the attack of cold air, slightly inadvertently easy to have a cold and fever, not only their own suffering but also worried about infecting their babies, so the new mother winter puerperium should pay attention to cold and warm, focusing on the following three aspects!
1. Attention: keep indoor temperature and humidity.
The key point of winter “puerperium” is to keep warm. In the south where there is no heating, air conditioning and electric heating can be used to maintain indoor temperature, and for the dry north, maintaining indoor humidity is also very important.
Indoor air should be fresh.

Indoor temperature should be 20 to 25 degrees. Avoid high and low.
Indoor humidity should be 55% to 65%.
A more convenient way to increase humidity is to buy a humidifier, which is better if it also has a germicidal function, or to put a basin of water indoors, or sprinkle some water on the ground, or use a wet mop to mop the floor several times a day to increase humidity (be careful not to let the woman slip off the bed).

New mothers are weak after childbirth, and they are more afraid of cold. In addition, mothers have to get up at night to feed their babies, which makes them more susceptible to cold. Puerpera mothers must pay special attention to keeping warm during the winter puerperium. Women who have just given birth to babies sweat easily, so winter puerperal clothing must be comfortable to sweat and keep warm.
