Many women note that it was during pregnancy that the symptoms of meteodependence were more pronounced in them, they could literally predict the future change in the weather. Meteosensitivity of women expecting a child is due to the following factors:

- increase in body weight.

Meteozavisimost in children can manifest themselves with the same symptoms as in adults( drowsiness, fatigue, headache, worsening of appetite).However, there are signs that are characteristic only for children. In particular, the adaptive capacity of the nervous system is not sufficiently developed in children, and therefore they respond more sensitively to weather changes. The younger the child, the more sensitive it is to weather conditions.
In children with neurological problems associated with birth trauma, with weather changes or even seasons( from cold to warm and vice versa), the symptoms of meteorological dependence can be more acute. Such babies in these "transitional" periods can be "not themselves" - a quick change of mood, a general malaise and weakness prevent them from leading a full life, playing and exploring the world around them.
To alleviate the child's condition, it can be given 30-50 mg of vitamin C and 3-5 drops of 10% vitamin E - this combination will improve the supply of oxygen to the brain cells.
To train the adaptive ability, doctors recommend to accustom the child to contrasting water procedures. During a shower, you can make a stream that is warmer, then cooler. The same can be done by simply washing hands and pouring feet. It is more often to allow a toddler to run barefoot, of course, if the temperature regime and the situation allows.
During periods of changing meteorological conditions it is important to protect the child from stressful situations, do not overstrain with training and try to organize pleasant leisure and a healthy sleep. Regular walks in the fresh air combined with active games, for example, with a ball, will be useful.
