At about 7 am in the morning, they woke up crying and drinking milk, but the child was extra quiet that day. My parents thought they were sleeping, and they didn’t get up to see him.

“Children within one year old can wear more clothes than adults.” Zhu De Sheng reminded that the child’s quilt and clothes should be appropriately loose, and they should not restrict the child’s hands and feet. If the indoor temperature is low, the conditional families can turn on air conditioning and heating, but the temperature should be controlled at about 25 ° C. At the same time, pay attention to ventilation once every 4-6 hours to ensure that the indoor air is fresh. Children over one year of age can refer to adults to dress, because children of this age are basically the same as adults.

It is important to note that do not pull the quilt too high or even cover the child’s nose. At night, parents must observe their children’s warmth and breathing situations from time to time, and avoid the child’s quilt cover, leading to danger.
