Potty Training: What do we talk about?
When you know that 90% do not wash their hands before a meal and 25% of them do not wash them with clear water only, no soap, we understand how important it is begin learning hygiene from an early age. hygiene is the toilet daily from all parts of the body: mouth, face, hands, feet, genitals and hair. But when and where to start? And how to make hygiene becomes automatic?

Head to foot

To take care of personal hygiene, bathing daily from birth allows him not only to protect against bacteria - the baby is very vulnerable to infections - but also save the time as a practice, a relaxing and game because the game is the best way to learn for a child's bath time should be related not to discard.

Thus, even if the child before 4 years is hard to wash himself, he can learn early on different parts of his body as and when they were washing him. The task can be complicated for hair (wash between one and three times per week), because many children can not bear to get water in his eyes. But it will put a glove to protect water flowing and avoid this time a real ordeal for all ...

Past 4-5 years, let him wash his own body, including her private parts, but always under your supervision to ensure that it is properly washing (it should foam!) And to avoid injury (burns or slide, for example).

Hands as often as possible

The hands and nails are the targets of microbial contamination, and those children are no exception since they are used to explore the world around them.

Wash their hands several times a day should be automatic for all, let alone for parents whose children mimic every move. So learn your child to wash their hands counting to 30 every time he comes home, he returns from the bathroom and he hit an animal (even the house) ditto before and after each meal, and when it starts to catch what he has on his plate.

Again, these practices become automatic if they already are for you ... It is good to remember that proper hand washing means remove rings and jewelery, wet your hands with warm water, wash in all corners, between fingers and under nails with soap for thirty seconds making good lather to loosen microbes and finally rinse hands and dry them with a clean cloth to prevent new microbes are not redeposited.

And do not forget that for nails are more likely to stay clean, it is preferable that they are short.

Wash your teeth, fly your nose!

The power of contamination of nasal secretions (runny nose, sneezing ...) is particularly high.

From birth, cleaning the nasal cavity allows discarding of many diseases (colds, bronchiolitis ...), not only in winter but defensively throughout the year. Using a fly baby will quickly relayed by the child himself at 18 months, the child is able to imitate the grunting of a pig and blow her nose. Enjoy the teaching him to blow harder and show the result in the tissue and especially in its ability to breathe better. Do not forget to use disposable tissues to avoid nests microbes, as well as saline or sea water to prevent irritation.

Once the first teeth, put in the hands of your child a toothbrush with toothpaste suitable special junior. Again, nothing beats the model represent the parents. Growing up, brushing after every meal and at least twice a day helps to remove plaque and food waste and fight against cavities. Using a timer can also help to brush their teeth long enough to be effective brushing.

Become clean, what is it?

Layer to the toilet through the pot and the ability to wipe only as it should, it takes several years.

The first month, parents are the guarantors of good hygiene since changing diapers and caring for their child's toilet. Potty training, which is gentle to 2 years, allows child to go quickly realize a kind of ritual related to cleanliness: wipe private parts (from front to back for girls and boys), evacuation of feces in the toilet, washing hands. When these practices are repeated systematically, they value controls for the child who acquires them as such.

Gradually to 5 years, the child is able to go to the toilet alone, to wipe properly until there is no residue on the paper, flush and wash hands with soap.
