The Effect Of Using A Fan On A Sleeping Baby?
If the baby wants to drink always use a dangerous fan, please explain? The problem is my child, if you have to have a fan, start … if I turn off the fan, I will wake up or cry.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Environmental conditions that are too hot or stifling often make babies feel uncomfortable and eventually have trouble sleeping. This is often tricked by the use of a fan. This action is not absolutely prohibited. However, you shouldn't overdo this action.
The use of a fan can cause dust and dirt in the room to fly, making it more susceptible to being inhaled into the respiratory tract. This condition can make your baby experience coughs, colds, throat with phlegm, shortness of breath, and various other complaints. Not only that, the entry of too much air into the digestive tract due to the use of a fan can also cause the baby to experience bloating, frequent belching, frequent gas, and colic.
Our advice, you get around this condition in the following ways:
When going to bed, give your child comfortable clothes, made from cool
If possible, use air conditioning (cooling the room temperature AC is safer than a fan)
If you still have to use a fan, adjust the wind speed so that it is not too high, do not also direct the fan directly at the baby's body, and as much as possible turn off the fan after the baby is asleep
If the steps above are still unsuccessful in dealing with your baby's complaints, don't hesitate to consult directly to a doctor or pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
