As a parent, you know that nothing matters more than your child’s health. If the flu, fever or diarrhea worry you and run you to the emergency room, the story of this newborn who spent 5 days in the hospital because he was kissed on the mouth should surely traumatize you.
In their early years, babies are likely to catch several bacteria and viruses, and even as they grow older, their immune systems remain weak and unable to operate completely. Some of these dangers and infections can be prevented through vaccination (bronchiolitis, varicella, meningitis), but it is necessary to prevent them before they turn into other more serious diseases.
Kissing a baby on the mouth can be serious:
Babies are too cute, everyone wants to kiss and caress them. For some parents, this natural gesture is affection and tenderness and is more or less tolerable. In others, kissing her baby is indisputable. In reality, it is necessary to be more careful or even strict with this kind of behavior that can cause diseases.
So let’s stop judging parents to be super attentive or overprotective towards their children. Here’s why !
A kiss can put your baby’s life in danger!
Due to a kiss, your baby may be contaminated by mouth and may develop multiple infections and viruses. If you do not know, about 85% of the population is carrying viruses. Given the number of people who are approaching your child, this is something to worry about.
In some cases, it is easier to avoid the risk, for example if you see someone with herpes, ask her to stay away from your child. You can do it politely. In any case, the contamination risks reaching other organs of his body, for example the liver and the brain and you will not be delighted!
