Plantex for newborns
Granular preparation for preparing Plantex tea contains fennel extract and essential oil, a recognized helper in the fight against colic. It is from the fruits of fennel that the well-known dill water is produced, which is considered a panacea for pain in small tummies. Plantex compares favorably with dill water in terms of shelf life and the ability to have the powder on hand anywhere.
Colic and Plantex
Colic is much higher during artificial feeding than during natural breastfeeding. The baby's imperfect digestive system is only trying to adapt to normal functioning, so any factors - inappropriate mixtures, swallowing air during feeding and crying, stress - can cause a malfunction in the metabolic process.
The most painful manifestations are colic, when small areas of the intestine are pinched, the child feels a sharp pain. The most effective methods, of course, are "grandmothers". This laying out on the stomach - it is better if on the stomach of mom or dad, a warm diaper, laid on the tummy and the baby's upright position. But sometimes this is not enough, then try giving the baby Plantex.
Ways to use Plantex
A bag of Plantex granules must be diluted in 100 grams of warm boiled water, stir until completely dissolved. The tea has a pleasant smell and neutral taste, it is not sweetened. During the day, the prepared tea can be given to the baby in a few spoons, or by pouring it into a bottle, if the child is an artificial.
Plantex can be used starting from 2 weeks of age, up to three months, the rate of the drug per day does not exceed one sachet. After this age, if necessary, you can double the rate, but it is better not to get carried away even with such a harmless drug, but to try to establish digestion in a natural way.
Difficulties and contraindications
Not all children will like the taste of Plantex, then a syringe from suspensions will come to the rescue, which is filled with tea and injected into the baby's cheek. As a rule, each baby has its own Plantex rate, which the mother sets empirically. Therefore, it makes sense to buy a few sachets of granules for a start, because the drug cannot be called cheap.
Contraindications to the use of Plantex tea are galactosemia, lactase deficiency. Also, the drug in rare cases can cause an allergic reaction in the form of redness and itching. Then the mother who is breastfeeding the baby can drink Plantex.
Take care of yourself, your baby and be healthy.
