how old is the baby to wear a mask?

regular masks are suitable for children over 3 years old, and it is better not for children under 2 years old. Under 2 years old baby wears the mask, cannot cause the mask to cling to the face, wore also did not have any effect

in addition, the better the antifouling performance of the mask, the worse the air permeability. The mask covers the face tightly. Although it can resist the invasion of bacteria, viruses and PM2.5, it is not good for the baby to breathe fresh air.

(3) disposable mask

this kind of mask does not necessarily have the function of sterilization and disinfection, and can not effectively resist the invasion of haze, dust and virus. 1t is also not recommended to wear it to the baby

(4) masks with material problems

some masks contain silica gel and inferior plastic, which may release harmful gases such as formaldehyde during use, thus affecting the health of the baby. Some masks have high fiber content, which can not only produce static electricity, but also stimulate the baby’s skin. 1t’s better not to wear these masks for the baby

? Choose the appropriate size

the size of the mask is too large or too small, which has a direct impact on the filtering effect of the mask. We should choose the mask according to the actual situation of the baby’s age and face size. Generally speaking, the 8-10 cm mask is very suitable for the baby. 1t’s even better if it has the function of adjusting the size
