Beebi vannitamine ja küünte lõikamine.

Paljud pered arutavad juba enne lapse sündi mitmete asjade üle, üks paljudest on vannitamine ja küünte lõikamine.

Millegipärast on nii kujunenud, et isad on nendes kahes asjas väga osavad ja nii jääbki see osa üsna tihti beebide eest hoolitsemisel nende kanda.
Kui tuleb perelisa lapse näol, siis ei pea muretsema beebivanni ja kõiksugu muid udupeeneid vidinaid.

Kui on plaan ruumi kokku hoida ja kodus on kas vann või duššinurk, siis üks võimalus on muretseda (pildil) vannitamise alus, mille sisu on pehmest silikonist. Alust saab asetada nii vanni kui duššinurka. See teeb beebi pesemise väga lihtsaks neile, kel hirm, et laps libiseb käest ja vannitamine saab olema stressirohke kogemus nii lapsele kui vannitajale.

Ole loominguline – kõrgema servaga pesukauss või pisike ämber – need kodused vahendid sobivad ideaalselt.
Kuid kõige mõnusam beebi jaoks on kui ühtegi ülaltoodud variantidest ei kasuta, vaid võtad lapse endaga koos vanni või dušši alla, kuid siinkohal soovitan seda üksi mitte teha, vaid keegi peaks aitama beebit anda ja ära võtta, sest märja jalaga võid kergesti libiseda ja kukkuda. Beebi jaoks on see aga võimalus nahk naha vastas aega juurde saada.

Mis peaks olema vannivee temperatuur?
Soovituslik vannivee temperatuur võiks olla 37-38c.

Kui tihti peaks beebit vannitama ja mida kasutada pesemisel?
Beebit võib vannitada iga päev. Hea aeg vannitamiseks on enne õhtusööki, ehk 5-6 vahel õhtul.
Selleks, et vannitamine sujuks ilma nututa ja beebi peaks vastu, anna enne vannitamist natukene süüa umbes 5 minutit rinda või 30ml piimasegu.
Beebi pesemisel ei pea kasutama vannivahtu või teisi pesuvahendeid. Kui toidad rinnaga siis pane umbes 20ml rinnapiima vannivette, see neutraliseerib vee ja teeb beebi naha mõnusalt pehmeks või kasuta lihtsalt vett, sest beebi ei jookse õues ringi ja ei saa mustaks ega puutu kokku bakteritega selliselt nagu suuremad lapsed. (Kui rinnapiima on suuremas koguses, siis proovi, lisades seda endale vannivette – erinevust on koheselt tunda)

Miks iga päev vannitada?
Kui vannitada iga päev on see osa päevakavast ja beebi teab, et peale seda on rahulik aeg enne ööund. Samuti on vees sulistamine rahustav ja sinna juurde veel massaaž tekitab endalgi tunde üks mõnus vann päeva lõpetuseks võtta.

Kui kaua peaks vannitama?
Mõni päev läheb vannitamisele 30 minutit, kuid teine päev 10 minutit – tee täpselt nii nagu sul endal tuju ja beebil vaatupidavust.

Kuidas- ja millal küüsi lõigata?
Alles hiljuti küsiti mu käest, et kuidas beebil küüsi lõigata, sest haigla koti nimekirjas on ära toodud, et küünekäärid võtke ise kaasa. Tegelikult on beebi küüned sedavõrd pehmed, et need murduvad juba iseenesest. Kui siiski on soov küüsi lõigata, siis küünetangidega naksata on ohutum. (Kuid ära lõika liiga küünenaha juurest) Küünte lõikamisega peab eriti ettevaatlik olema enne kui pole tehtud teetanuse süst, lisainfo teetanuse süsti kohta saab siit: https://www.kliinik.ee/teemalehed/vaktsineerimine/aid-24899/teetanus
Selleks, et beebi nägu ei kriibiks ja sõrmi/käsi suhe ei paneks antakse haiglas kindad või soovitatakse sokid käte otsa tõmmata. Tegelikult on väga oluline, et laps saaks käsi suhu panna, sellega õpid ta enda keha tundma ja ise ennast maha rahustama.
Mõnusat vannitamist,

Babies: All about taking baths and clipping nails

Many families discuss everything they can think of beforehand, one of these things is bathing a baby and clipping their nails.
For some reason it seems that the dads have some superpowers and do extremely well in these two things. Quite often this becomes their part of the daily routine when taking care of the baby.
If you have a new addition to your family, then please do not worry about getting a special bathtub for the baby and all those fancy accessories that are not necessary at all.
If you plan to save some space in your already tiny bathroom and you either have a bath or a shower, then one option is to arrange a bath support (as shown on the picture) , which is made of soft silicone. This can be placed both in the bath and in the shower, making bathing an easier and a more comfortable experience for the baby and for the parents as well. No more worrying that the baby could slip from their hands and this bath support would ensure a less stressful bathing session for both the baby and the parents.
Be creative – you can also use any smaller tubs which have higher edges or a small bucket – these things usually found in own homes can work perfectly.
The most comfortable option for the baby of course is not using any of the above, but to take the baby with you to the bath or under the shower. On this occasion I do have to stress that this shouldn’t be done alone, it is necessary for someone else to be present to hand you the baby and to take them away due to slippery surfaces. But please do keep in mind that this does give the baby more time they can spend against your skin.
What should be the water temperature?
I would advise around 37-38 degrees by Celsius.

How often should baby be bathed and what to use? Babies can be bathed every single day. Good time to do so is before dinner, more or less around 5-6pm. To ensure that this will be a smooth process and as least stressful as possible for the baby, before bathing I would advise to breastfeed the baby for about 5 minutes or give him or her around 30ml of baby formula milk. For washing the baby, you do not have to use any products. If you breastfeed, you can add around 20ml breast milk to the bathing water. This neutralises the water and makes the baby’s skin soft. You can use just water on its own as well as the baby is not in contact with bacteria as bigger toddlers are. If you do produce milk in larger quantities, you can add some to your own bath water as well – you can feel the difference immediately.
Why bathe every day?
If you make this a part of your daily routine, the baby will know that after a bath everything will be calm before sleep. Additionally, playing around in water is comforting and adding a baby massage on top of the bathing experience makes you want to take a nice relaxing bath as well.
How long should be the bathing process?
Sometimes it can take 30 minutes, another day 10 minutes – it’s totally up to you and the baby.
When and how to clip nails?
Quite recently I was asked how to clip baby’s nails, because when looking at the hospital bag list you are given, you can find scissors on there. Actually the baby’s nails are so soft that they break on its own. If you do wish to clip his or her nails, then using special clipping scissors would be the best – safety first!. Keep in mind that you should not clip it off too close. This does require you to be cautious, especially before the baby is given tetanus vaccination shot. More information about the tetanus vaccine can be found from the following page:
http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Tetanus/Pages/Introduction.aspx
Tetanus – NHS Choices
http://www.nhs.uk
Information about tetanus, a rare bacterial infection, including how you get it, the symptoms, how it’s treated, and the tetanus vaccination.

Another thing I have noticed is that in hospitals they give you gloves or advise to pull socks over the baby’s hands to avoid the baby scratching himself or herself. I would advise against this as actually it is very important that the baby can place their hands into their mouth as a way to learn about their body and to calm themselves.

Wishing you a beautiful bathing time,
Kadi
