Why you should be careful when bathing yourself or a child

 child bathing

Little and developing children are very fragile elements which require the undeterred attention and care from parents and guardians.

Now, there are precautions which are taken, and they are other activities which the parents and others do to keep the child happy and warm, although some of these activities are somewhat dangerous especially the one I used to do before, in which you throw the baby in the air and catch him..

Now its the case of bathing and swimming, (and any other way in which a child would inhale water)  these growing children systems are not as effective as that of an adult and thereby ignorant parents would put their child at risk without even knowing it. 

Some ways in which we bath a child can lead to secondary drowning, although this is rare it leads to a fatal outcome if the warning symptoms are overlooked.

Although secondary drowning affects both children and adults alike, there are more chances for an adult than the child. 

Whenever the child inhales a small gush of water, (which is likely to happen during bathing or swimming) it the irritate the lungs and lead to swelling. Usually a small amount of water is present in the lungs when secondary drowning occurs, but that small amount is enough to hinder the lungs ability to provide oxygen to the bloodstream, and then death, which leads to the term "Secondary drowning".

A fatal case has already been identified in Nigeria of a three year old child who died from such. This is something we should take seriously and ignorance is not an excuse. And also to adults too be careful when swimming or bathing and as not to put your own self at risk of such as terrible scenario.

Stay Healthy, Stay Wise.
