6 reasons why your baby sleeps and molars
Core tip: what to do if the baby sleeps and molars?
The mother should first find the cause of the molars before taking countermeasures.
1. Parasitic worms have tapeworms in their small intestines and plunder nutrients, which will stimulate the intestinal wall, secrete toxins, and cause indigestion.
Children’s stomach often has faint pain, which can cause insomnia, irritability and nighttime molars.
In addition, tapeworms can cause bruising.
Ascaris is usually in the large intestine of the human body. After the child falls asleep, ascaris will creep to the anal mouth to spawn, causing itching in the anus, causing the child to sleep uncomfortably, and bruising.
Coping Strategies: Deworm children.
Develop good hygiene habits.
2. Overeat at dinner. Overeat at dinner, or adding a meal before bedtime, not only affects nutrient absorption, but also increases the burden on the internal tract.
Because when sleeping, a large amount of undigested food still accumulates in the gastrointestinal tract, the entire digestive system has to “work the night shift”, work continuously, and even the chewing muscles are mobilized to involuntarily contract and cause bruising.
Coping strategies: Don’t let your child overeat before going to bed, wait a little while after you are full, and let your child go to bed.
3, children with rickets due to lack of vitamin D, due to calcium and phosphorus metabolism disorders in the body, can cause decalcification of bones, muscle soreness and autonomic disorders, often sweating, night terrors, irritability and night molars.
Coping strategies: Under the guidance of a doctor, supplement your child with vitamin D and calcium tablets, and usually get more sun, and the molars at night will gradually decrease.
4, mental factors, a few children usually do not molars, but if you listen to exciting stories before going to bed, or just after watching horror, nervous TV or distortion, due to nervous system overexcitation, nighttime molars will also appear.
Another reason is the high pressure, such as not adapting to kindergarten life, afraid of a child in the class, arguing with parents or family members, etc., will make the child nervous, causing the child to sleep at night and molars.
In addition, some hyperactive children also experience nighttime molars.
Coping strategy: Don’t let your child watch those overly exciting TVs before going to bed.
Often communicate with the teacher and the child. If the child has a heart knot, help him solve it in time to relieve his psychological pressure.
5, the teeth are uneven, the chewing muscles are too strong, or the long-term use of twisted teeth to chew, and the teeth occlusion relationship is not good, the occurrence of mandibular joint dysfunction, can also cause nighttime molars.
In addition, children with unevenly distributed teeth often have abnormal masticatory muscle positions. When they sleep at night, the masticatory muscles often contract unconsciously and cause molars.
Coping Strategies: Take your child to the dentist regularly, and do orthodontics and treatment according to the doctor’s recommendations.
6. Poor sleep posture If the child’s head is often biased to correct when sleeping, it will cause the chewing muscles to become uncoordinated and cause the compressed insertion of the chewing muscles to contract abnormally, resulting in molars.
Children sleep with their heads covered at night. Due to the excessive accumulation of carbon dioxide and insufficient oxygen supply, it can also cause teeth bruising.
Coping strategies: If you find that your child is not sleeping well, help him adjust in time.
Do not let your child develop the habit of sleeping with his head covered.
