5 Signs Your Child is Dehydrated
While adults are generally busy preparing food, cleaning or working, children are busy running after a ball or playing hide and seek! These activities release the water stored in their little bodies.
An excessive loss of fluids is the definition of Dehydration. Let's discover some of the signs you child isn't getting enough fluids:
1) Dry Lips, Mouth, and Tongue
After physical activities, some children forget to drink water. They end up having dry lips, mouth, and tongue. Remind your child to drink a cup of water or natural juice.
2) Skin Loses its Elasticity
Dry skin is one of the signs your child is dehydrated. Severe dehydration can cause the skin to lose its elasticity.
3) Check Your Child Urine
The darker the urine gets, the more your child is dehydrated. Check your little one's urine to make sure he is getting enough fluids.
4) Frequent Urination Caused by Medication
Is your child urinating more than usual? Some medications can cause the body to dehydrate.
5) Bad Breath, Swollen Tongue, and More
Headache, fatigue, dizziness, and more can happen to your child because of dehydration.
