Even in winter, you can't wear too thick socks for your baby
Babies are in a period of continuous growth and development, with immature development of various organs and systems, as well as thermoregulation. The heat production capacity is small, the heat dissipation capacity is large, and the peripheral blood circulation is not good. If the child is put on socks, it can be raised from a certain degree of soil Keep warm, avoid catching cold. But even in winter, you can't wear too thick socks for your baby. Why?
Baby's feet sweat a lot, thick socks aggravate sweaty feet
Little babies are "sweat feet" because children are in a period of vigorous physical development and have a high basal metabolic rate, but the feet are where the sweat glands are most dense. Therefore, after the baby is strenuously exercising and walking for a long time, foot sweat will be particularly many.
Thick socks are not breathable and will only increase the sweat of the feet. The baby's feet are very likely to get beriberi or foot infections. If you don't perspire in time in winter, you may get frostbite.
Thick socks do not absorb sweat, sweating makes it easier to catch a cold
Thick socks will aggravate foot sweat, but they do not absorb sweat and are easy to get wet. A large amount of moisture will squeeze out the air in the fibers of the socks, due to the lack of air, an excellent heat insulator;
When the socks are wet, they will make the baby’s feet cool, reflexively causing the respiratory tract resistance to decrease and catch a cold.
Thick socks will cause the baby's feet to be tightly wrapped, and too tightly wrapped in footwear and socks will also affect the blood circulation of the steps, which is also the reason why the body does not feel warm.
Thick socks affect baby's tactile development and leg shape
If your baby’s socks are too thick, it will affect the ankle movement, and will easily cause pressure on the baby’s feet and legs, affecting blood circulation.
Thick socks and soles will also affect the development of the baby's toes and soles.
Little babies don’t have heels, and thick socks are easy to slide down and shift. When the baby walks, the heel position slips to the sole of the foot. The baby wears slippery socks, and when walking, his feet will hit the ground hard and the posture is very awkward.
How to choose the right size socks for your baby
Before choosing a purchase, it is best to measure the size of the baby's soleplate, because the actual length of the soleplate is the most reliable: the actual length of the soleplate is within a range of plus or minus one centimeter is an absolute safety range. 9-11 cm socks are absolutely no problem, if they are particularly fat, increase the size appropriately.
