I believe many people will drool when they sleep, and their pillows will be wet after waking up in the morning. It turns out that drooling while sleeping may be a siren sounding from your body.
Moms, has this happened to your children? Immediately deconstruct the cause of the child’s drooling and health crisis, and see if there is any way to improve it!
Causes of drooling while sleeping
Sometimes, even after brushing and cleaning the mouth, bacteria will breed in the mouth, and there is leftover food in the teeth, which is more likely to cause dental-related diseases, such as periodontal disease, tooth decay, and toothache. If it causes inflammation, ulcers in the mouth can promote saliva secretion, which may cause your child to drool while sleeping at night.
2.Poor sleeping position
Children who are accustomed to sleeping on the side and lying on their backs are more likely to drool when sleeping than those who sleep on their backs. When the child’s face is pressed, his mouth will open unconsciously, which increases the chance of drooling.
3.Weak spleen and stomach
From the perspective of Chinese medicine, the cause of drooling may be related to diet. Children usually eat more food that is difficult to digest and heat, which will cause the spleen and stomach to become damp and hot, which will weaken their functions.
4. Mouth breathing while sleeping
Under normal circumstances, humans use their noses to breathe during sleep, but in some cases, they use their mouths to help hold their breath, such as nasal congestion and sleep apnea. When the mouth continues to open, the chance of drooling will increase.
3 Methods to Improve Baby Drooling While Sleeping
1.Improve sleeping posture
A good sleeping position not only guarantees the quality of sleep but also effectively improves drooling during sleep. Parents can accompany their children to improve their posture. It is best to lie flat in bed and fall asleep slowly with their face up.
Parents are advised to prepare some light food for their children to avoid affecting digestive function. At the same time, do not return the child to eat more fire, fry food, reduce the impact of “hot air” on the mouth, and improve drooling during sleep.
3. Clean the mouth
Develop a good habit of brushing your teeth with your child in the morning and evening, and remove the food between the teeth to ensure that there is no sweet or salty taste in the mouth. Regular dental health checks are also required to maintain oral health and hygiene. Drooling will be slow. Slowly disappear.
