The Cause Of A Baby’s Head Is Often Hot In The Morning?
I want to ask what causes my baby’s head is often hot if entering dawn after that better again. When it was dawn, it started to heat up, and later in the dawn it was better like that.
Thank you for the question.
Hot or not can be a very subjective complaint. So, if this happens to your baby, you should first make sure of this by checking his body temperature using a standardized thermometer. If it turns out that his body temperature is normal (around 36.5 to 37.5 degrees Celsius), chances are that the heat you feel in the body is not a dangerous condition. This heat can arise due to the increased metabolic effects of the body, for example when finished eating or finished feeding, after a lot of physical activity, being in a hot environment, and so on. Overcome this condition by more diligent breastfeeding, give him a lot of drinking water (if he is 6 months old), let the baby rest a lot, give him comfortable clothes and absorb sweat, and do not carelessly drink baby drugs without a prescription directly from the doctor.
However, if it is true that his body temperature increased by more than 37.5 degrees Celsius, and this condition recurs every morning, then you should be more vigilant. It is feared, this body heat indicates your baby has an infection, inflammatory disorders, malignancies, thyroid gland disorders, immune disorders, or other diseases. Check your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician if this complaint recurs more than 3 days, or to make your baby weak, fussy, lazy to suckle, tightness, vomiting, seizures, and other severe complaints appear. That way, the doctor can certainly give your baby the right treatment according to the cause.
Hope this helps ...
