Glucose young children appoint a doctor, to make it not worth it. But when you have a specific prescription from the pediatrician does not always work to do – often kids simply refuse to drink water or sugar solution. For starters dilute glucose water in a 50/50 ratio. It often happens that a kid doesn't want to drink too sweet tincture, but water with a pleasant taste with pleasure starts to suck. Even if the doctor prescribed you the solution of a certain concentration, will not harm if you will dissolve the glucose a little more to the state in which it is pleasant to the kid.
Let's glucose in between feedings, but not before meals or immediately after. The fact is that if infants drink liquid immediately before lunch, his appetite will fall sharply in the stomach there is very little space. If you give a sugar solution immediately after eating, not necessarily that the baby they will be interested. And even if you drink, chances are that you will vomit. Let's glucose in small SIPS after a while after eating, the baby managed to drink without harm to appetite and mood.
It so happens that sweet liquid the child is drinking with great pleasure, but then spits up. To solve this problem is simple. Try to hold the baby upright "column" immediately after feeding. Or to walk with him in my arms as all that is needed is ingested. Every mom sooner or later develops its own individual way of feeding and learning to avoid severe regurgitation. Watch your child and make him comfortable and easy.
Individual treatment course of glucose appoint a doctor. In no case do not self and do not give the baby glucose longer than it should be in the regulations. Improper use can cause severe diathesis.
If the baby is breast-fed, water to drink he may not want to, because mother's milk is liquid for it is enough. Try to offer a solution of glucose from a bottle and a spoon. Of course, this may not seem very convenient, but many children are more willing to take such food.
Advice 2: How to build glucose
Normal man gets energy from food. But in some cases it becomes difficult. Impediment to normal eating can be vomiting, infections of the gastrointestinal tract, problems with swallowing and other. In such cases, the doctor will prick glucose (subcutaneous, intramuscular, intravenous, bolus or infusion). But before you introduce glucose to the patient, it should be diluted (if, of course, not divorced).
The solution for injection must be sterile. Now ready solutions for injection are sold in pharmacies. The syringe should also be sterile. You can buy a disposable syringe at the pharmacy: it is inexpensive and safe in terms of sterility. Or you can sterilize the syringe at home. Important: do not reuse disposable syringes! After using disposable syringe should be discarded. The savings in this case is not only justified, but also very risky.
At a dilution of glucose follow your doctor's recommendations. The concentration of glucose in solution should be such that what is prescribed by a doctor. Fill the syringe with glucose and the solution in the right proportions. The syringe, of course, needs to be scaled.
Shake the syringe slightly and shake to obtain a homogeneous solution. A snap of a finger, remove from syringe small air bubbles. Will ensure that bubbles do not remain.
Treat the injection site with a cotton swab in some dry alcohol. Sticking the needle slowly and carefully enter the shot.
Glucose is prescribed not only for injection but also for the use through the digestive tract. Simply put, glucose to drink. Often doctors prescribe to give glucose infants as a complementary source of liquid and energy. In this case, to prepare the solution, add 3 teaspoons of glucose to 200 ml of boiling water. Give your child the solution in small portions between feedings.
