The baby is almost two years old, but does not like to eat, sometimes loves to vomit, very thin, very anxious...
Through communication, we found that there is a big problem in feeding the baby in Marble. Perhaps many parents are accustomed to do so, that is, to use chopsticks to give the baby dishes, scoop soup with a spoon, and try the temperature with the mouth first. Some elderly people even chew rice with their mouths to feed their babies. They don't think they say they are afraid of anything. We used to feed our children this way, but not all of them grew up this way.
Another mother left a message saying that she had a fight with her husband two days ago. The reason was that the food she made was a little spicy and the baby couldn't eat it. Her mother went to pour water to wash the baby's vegetables. As a result, when she came back, the baby's father was throwing the dish into his mouth. Remove the spicy taste, and then spit it out Parenting Station for the baby. Baoma immediately collapsed
Perhaps many mothers will think this is unhygienic and really a bit disgusting. Some mothers know that feeding the baby in this way will infect the baby with bacteria from the adult's mouth and affect the baby's health.
What I want to say to you is: the problem is much more serious than you think!
Do moms know? When we touch children's food and utensils directly or indirectly in the name of love, we are likely to be infected with the most infectious, contagious, and potentially cancer-causing bacteria in the world. The name of this bacterium is Helicobacter pylori.
H. pylori is a particularly cunning bacterium. It hides in the small wrinkles in people's stomachs. It wasn't until 1984 that two Australian doctors, Rubin Warren and Barrie Marshall, discovered it and set off a worldwide craze to study H. pylori.
People realized that those tormenting stomach diseases, such as stomach ulcers, gastritis, stomach pain, acidity, bloating, and bad breath, turned out to be H. pylori making trouble! In addition, more than 50% of people have H. pylori in the upper part of the digestive system, which further extends the contagiousness, such as kissing, sharing utensils, towels, etc.
Do you know how many Chinese people are infected with H. pylori, 768 million! Almost every two people have one, as the saying goes, nine out of ten people have stomach. Xiao Guojun believes that this is related to Chinese eating habits: not sharing meals, sharing utensils, and preferring to use their own utensils to give others dishes.
Currently the main mode of transmission of H. pylori is oral transmission, and many people are infected as children, which has a lot to do with the way they are fed.
Children are a susceptible group for H. pylori. According to the Chinese H. pylori Research Cooperation Group, the prevalence of H. pylori infection in children ranges from 25% to 64.39%. Children with H. pylori infection are mostly asymptomatic carriers, and chronic abdominal pain is the most common manifestation of H. pylori infection.
There is usually no obvious regularity after eating. The site of pain around the umbilicus is not precise. Abdominal pain in children can only be manifested as restlessness and changes in normal eating behavior, in older children the symptoms are like those of adults, followed by hiccups early satiety, nausea upper abdominal discomfort, and acid reflux. Eating hard, cold, spicy food or cold, temperature drop, can cause or aggravate the symptoms some children may have loss of appetite, fatigue, thin, dizziness, accompanied by gastric erosion can appear black stools, etc.
(1) Infancy and early childhood: children in this period are commonly affected by acute onset, irritability, loss of appetite, sudden vomiting of blood, black stools, early loss of appetite, repeated vomiting and abdominal pain, growth retardation, etc.
(2)Preschool age:In this period, abdominal pain symptoms are obvious, mostly located in intermittent episodes around the umbilicus, unclear relationship with diet, nausea, vomiting and acid reflux, anemia and upper gastrointestinal bleeding.
(3)School age:With the growth of age, the clinical manifestations approach those of adults, with symptoms of upper abdominal pain, predominantly periumbilical abdominal pain, sometimes pain at night, or acid reflux, hiccups or chronic anemia. A few people show painless black stools, fainting or even shock.
H. pylori is stubborn, difficult to cure on its own without treatment, and can torment people for the rest of their lives, unknowingly infecting more people.
However, in China, there is a lack of awareness in this area. Many people do not take stomach discomfort seriously. If they really feel uncomfortable, they go to the pharmacy and buy some medicine to take. This doesn't solve the problem at all. Of course, it is hard to bear to go to the hospital for examination. They are often seriously ill or at an advanced stage.
Now parents know that they must pay attention to the scientific method of feeding their babies, and never touch the food and baby's utensils directly with their mouths for convenience. Usually also less direct mouth-to-mouth kissing of the baby, parents and nannies who take care of the baby must pay attention to hygiene, wash their hands often, and it is best for mother and baby to have different beds.
When the baby grows up, special tableware should be used, and it is best to share meals. If a family member has an upset stomach, be sure to go to the hospital to get checked for H. pylori. If it is detected, it must be treated and cured by taking medicine.
If the child has symptoms such as long-term loss of appetite, yellow face and abdominal pain, it is best to go to the hospital for examination.
