Baby’s Immune System Is 10 Months Old?
Hello … I want to ask, my child is now 10 months old, he gets sick easily, heals sometimes he will get sick again in a week.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically babies and children do have immunity that is not as strong as adults. This causes children to be very susceptible to infections, especially viral infections in the respiratory tract and digestive tract. Research shows that babies and toddlers can get viral infections in the respiratory tract up to 7-8 times a year. There are many factors that can affect a child's health, including:
child nutrition, whether the child's nutrition properly fulfilled or not
cleanliness of food provided for children
whether the child is getting enough sleep or not (sleep also affects the body's immune system)
exposure to infection, for example if a child is entrusted in a daycare, or often plays with other children who are sick, or many adults around children who often kiss or hold a child when he is sick, etc.
environmental cleanliness around children, for example air cleanliness (whether there is a lot of air pollution or not, whether or not there are people who smoke near children), cleanliness of the house (eg whether the house is cleaned regularly, the bed is cleaned from dust or not, etc.)
other diseases owned by children, for example children who have immune system disorders due to HIV or certain genetic diseases
To help maintain a child's health, here are some things you can do:
Provide complete nutritious food for children, monitor children's growth to always be appropriate for their age
Make sure you prepare and store food in a correct and clean way
Give ASI for children (in breast milk contained immunoglobulin which can help maintain the child's immunity)
Give vaccinations to children according to the schedule provided
Enough child sleep
Avoid children from children or other adults who are sick
Keep your home environment clean
Keep children from pollution and cigarette smoke
Make sure you also check the child's health and growth and development to the pediatrician regularly. If there are indeed certain problems, pediatricians can detect it early and provide appropriate treatment to prevent further growth and development disorders.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
