Tips to Keep Babies Safe While Using the Air Conditioning System

Pediatricians across the world believe that a room that is humid and hot is very unsafe for a baby. Using an air conditioning system along with some precaution can prove to be effective. Most of the experts recommend using a properly cooled, airy ventilated room, so that the baby sleeps comfortably and grows healthily. Some of the key tips are-

Maintaining A Room Temperature That Is Comfortable

Cooling of AC’s is affected because of changes in the outside temperature. Due to this, the room might get very cold and the baby might become uncomfortable. So, setting a comfortable temperature of neither too cold nor too hot is very important. Leading pediatricians recommend using a temperature that ranges between 23 to 26 oC. Other different tips to maintain room temperature are-
  • With the using of an AC, the timer of the AC should be set in such a way that it takes a certain duration for cooling the room. If the AC does not have a timer, an alarm clock should be used to remind oneself.  Moreover, if  the AC does not have a temperature display, a thermometer should be kept in the room to continuously monitor the temperature.
     
  • If the user is using a cooler, the window or the door should be left partially open to facilitate the passage of air, especially during the humid season like the monsoon season. A cooler usually evaporates water to provide a cooling effect. Hence, it increases the level of humidity in the environment. If the room is completely closed, the humidity goes up continuously and the cooling effect will stop altogether, which brings in a gradual rise in temperature and makes the room sticky and hot.

Keeping the Baby Far from The Ac’s Blast of Cold Air

This is very important because the direct blast from the air conditioning system can affect the baby’s health. The other tips include-
  • The baby should be dressed in light layers that completely cover his/her legs and arms. By doing this, the baby will be protected from chilly air.
     
  • Using a light cap and booties or cotton sock for covering the feet is good as well.
     
  • If the parent plans on using a light blanket, he/she should ensure that the blanket is tucked below the baby’s elbows and avoid covering  it’s face.
     
  • In an ideal situation, the baby should wear an extra layer compared to the parent. Care should be taken to ensure that the baby is not wrapped too much or too warmly for the room.

Getting the Air Conditioning System Regularly Serviced

The manual should be checked thoroughly or speak someone at the service center for details on when, how, and where should the servicing should be done.

The Baby Should Be Well Moisturized – An Air Conditioning System Can Dry Up the Skin
It is a well-known fact that immersing an ear swab in baby oil and wiping it gently on each nostril helps in preventing bleeding of the nose. However, the parent should check it with the doctor before doing this. Few mothers recommend that a bowl of clean water should be kept in the room. The mothers say that the water reduces the dryness in the air by moistening the air in the room.

The baby should not be taken to a warm area immediately after leaving the air conditioning environment. The sudden changes in the temperature might cause the infant to fall ill. If the air conditioning system is switched off, enough time should be given for the baby to get acclimatized to the external temperature.
