Is It Okay To Cheat On A Baby Using Wet Tissue?
Afternoon, I want to ask, r nI often feces BAB, but I always hack it using only a wet tissue ..
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Infants who are still very small (less than 3 months) do tend to defecate more often than adults. This condition can certainly be very troublesome if it requires the mother to clean it continuously with running water. Therefore, wet tissue is often used as a more practical choice.
In urgent conditions, it is not really a matter of cleaning baby's BAB only using wet tissue. It's just that you need to be more careful in choosing this wet tissue. Incorrectly, the use of wet tissue that is not right can actually make your baby's buttocks become irritated. Choose wet tissue made specifically for babies, without containing fragrance or other irritating substances. Not only that, choose a wet tissue that is made from soft so it is comfortable for sensitive baby's skin. Clean your baby's bottom well until there are no more faeces left, from front to back (genitals to buttocks), not vice versa.
However, as mentioned above, the above actions should only be done in urgent conditions, not to be carried out routinely. It is much better if you clean your baby's stool in running water so that you can be sure that no more stool remains on your baby's skin. If you also want to use a wet tissue, this should only be done as a final step. You can use a cotton swab soaked with clean water before drying it with a wet tissue.
That's all our explanation. For more details, please consult directly with your doctor or pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
