To increase the baby’s defenses, it is important to play free air so that this type of experience helps to strengthen the immune system, preventing the appearance of most allergies to octopus or mites. In addition, a healthy diet helps in the production of defense cells improving the immunity of the child.
The baby’s immune system is strengthened over time through maternal lactation and also by coming into contact with viruses and bacteria that are normally present in the environment, which will stimulate the production of defenses.
Tips to increase your baby’s immunity
Some simple and interesting tips to increase the baby’s immunity can be:
breastfeed the baby, and that maternal milk poses antibodies that reinforce the baby’s immune system. Know other benefits of maternal lactation;
Put all the indicated vaccines in the vaccination calendar, because these expose the baby to the microorganism in a controlled way and stimulate the organism to produce antibodies against the disease. So, when the baby is exposed to the bacteria or the virus, her body will have the way to fight it;
adequate restsince sleeping hours are necessary and fundamental to strengthen the immune system;
Consume fruits and vegetablesbecause they are foods that contain vitamins and minerals necessary to strengthen the immune system.
In addition, some studies indicate that there are also pets at home that could help to increase immunity, reduce the time that an illness lasts and reduce the risk of allergies.
The intake of medicines to increase the baby’s immunity, such as homeopathic medicines, must only be carried out under the indication and guidance of the pediatrician.
What foods should be included in the diet
The foods to increase the baby’s immunity are mainly maternal milk, fruits, vegetables and yogurts.
Fruits and vegetables can be offered in the form of soup, purees, juices or whole grains and chopped, depending on the age of the child, such as: la manzana, pear, banana, calabaza, papas, zanahoria, coliflor, camote, onion, puerro, chayote, broccoli, fresas, orange juice, repollo, beetroot and cucumber.
Although there are fruits and vegetables on the lips and listed in the supermarket, it is important that the baby eats foods without processing, as they have more nutrients available and are more easily absorbed by the body, strengthening the immune system faster.
It is frequent that there is some resistance of the baby to eat, mainly vegetables, but when you insist on the consumption of soup daily after 15 days or 1 month, the baby starts to accept better food. Find out more about baby food in the first year of age.
