Children's nutrition and diet
To quickly pass the diathesis, we use folk remedies for our crumbs, but in addition to such manipulations, nutrition remains an important aspect. Of course, parents must rid the baby of the allergen, and only then it will become much easier for him.
If you do not know which foods made your baby feel bad, you need to remove from the diet all highly allergenic foods, such as citrus and other fruits, dairy products, foods that contain chemical additives and preservatives.
You need to select food strictly according to the age of the child, because digestion depends on this. You can eat cereals, lean meat, herbs, vegetables. It is also important to drink a lot of liquid, it can be not only water, but also compotes, teas, still purified water.
Do not worry if your baby has diathesis, unfortunately, this is a hereditary disease, but its symptoms are quickly treated if you take it seriously and carefully. Also, it will not hurt to consult a specialist in order to accurately establish a diagnosis and choose the right means.
