How To Take Care of A Sick Child

 

 

 

While your child is feeling ill, they are likely to demand a lot of attention, and may be irritable and easily bored. Most children become more babyish when they are ill, and both babies and children need lot of cuddling and reassurance.

Keep your baby with you during the day- let them sleep in their cot, so that you can check on them frequently. Let your child lie down in the sitting room, so that they are near you.

At night sleep in the same room as your child if he/she is very unwell, so that you are nearby if they need you. Many children vomit when they are unwell, so keep a bowl nearby. Vomiting is rarely a serious symptom and, while it is often a sign of illness, it can also be brought on by emotional upset or excitement. Frequent or persistent vomiting can be a sign of a serious condition, and may lead to dehydration.

 

Eating and Drinking: Your child will probably have a smaller appetite than usual while they are ill. Because they are not running around much, they will need less energy, so don’t worry if they don’t want to eat much for a few days- it won’t do them any harm

Allow them to choose their favorite food, and offer small helpings. Let them eat as much or as little as they want; when they will feel better, their appetite will return. Babies may demand feeds more frequently than usual, but take very little milk each time. Be patient if your baby behaves like this- they need the comfort of feeling close to you as they suckle.

Drink is much more important than food while your child is ill. Make sure that they have plenty to drink- about 1 and half litres a day, especially if they have a raised temperature, or has been vomiting or have diarrhea- to make sure that the baby doesn’t get dehydrated.

 

Encouraging your Child to drink: If it is difficult to persuade your child to drink enough, make her drinks seem more appetizing by trying some of the ideas like, offering frequent small drinks in a doll’s cup pr an egg cup, rather than giving large amounts or make drinks look appetizing and more fun by letting your child use a straw.

Comfort and Entertainment: There is no need to insist that your child stays in bed, though it he is feeling very ill, he will probably want to stay there. If he wants to get up, make sure he keeps warm and that the room he is playing in isn’t draughty. Try to keep your child occupied, so that he doesn’t get bored, but remember that he will act younger than his age while he is ill.
