This information sheet explains what baking soda mouthwash does, how to make it, and how to give it. </p><h2>How to make your own mouthwash:</h2> <p>To make your own mouthwash, you will need a box of baking soda, a measuring cup, measuring spoons, a clean bottle with a lid, and tap water. </p> <p>Follow these 5 steps to make your own mouthwash:</p> <ol><li>Fill a measuring cup with 1 cup (250 mL) of water from the tap.</li> <li>Measure 1/4 teaspoon (1 mL) of baking soda with a measuring spoon.</li> <li>Put the baking soda you just measured into the cup of water from the tap.</li> <li>Stir the baking soda in the water until the baking soda dissolves.</li> <li>Pour the mouthwash from the measuring cup into the bottle and close the lid.</li></ol> <p>Your mouthwash is now ready to use. This mouthwash can be used for 24 hours. After 24 hours, throw away any unused portion and make a fresh batch. </p><h2>How should you give your child baking soda mouthwash?</h2> <ul><li>Ask your child to swish the baking soda mouthwash around in the mouth for 30 to 60 seconds and then it spit out </li> <li>Then rinse the mouth with plain water </li> <li>Baking soda mouthwash SHOULD NOT be swallowed.

If your child has mouth sores, you may wish to use a Toothette? instead of a toothbrush to clean your child's mouth. </p> <p>Ask your child to rinse the mouth well with the baking soda mouthwash after they have vomited or thrown up.

Foods to avoid are:</p> <ul><li>citrus fruits and juices, such as orange juice, lemons, tomatoes </li> <li>spicy foods </li> <li>rough or crunchy foods, such as tortilla chips </li> <li>foods that are very hot in temperature </li></ul> <p>If your child has mouth sores, give them foods that are easy to chew and swallow.

Cette fiche de renseignements explique ce que fait le rince-bouche de bicarbonate de soude, comment le préparer et la façon de le donner. </p><h2>Comment préparer votre propre rince-bouche :</h2> <p>Pour préparer votre propre rince-bouche, vous aurez besoin d'une boîte de bicarbonate de soude, d'une tasse graduée, de cuillères graduées, d'une bouteille propre avec un couvercle, et de l'eau de robinet. </p> <p>Suivez ces cinq étapes pour préparer votre propre rince-bouche :</p> <ol><li>Remplissez une tasse graduée avec 1 tasse (250 ml) d'eau du robinet.</li> <li>Mesurez 1/4 de cuillère à café (1 mL) de bicarbonate de soude avec une cuillère graduée.</li> <li>Mettez le bicarbonate de soude que vous venez de mesurer dans la tasse d'eau du robinet.</li> <li>Mélangez le bicarbonate de soude dans l'eau, jusqu'à ce que le bicarbonate de soude se dissolve.</li> <li>Versez le rince-bouche de la tasse graduée dans la bouteille, et fermez le couvercle.</li></ol> <p>Votre rince-bouche est maintenant prêt à être utilisé. Ce rince-bouche peut être utilisé pendant 24 heures. Après 24 heures, jetez toute portion inutilisée, et préparez un nouveau mélange. </p><h2>De quelle façon devriez-vous donner ce médicament à votre enfant?</h2> <ul><li>Demandez à votre enfant de se rincer la bouche avec le rince-bouche de bicarbonate de soude pendant 30 à 60 secondes, puis de le cracher. </li> <li>Puis, rincez la bouche avec de l'eau. </li> <li>Le rince-bouche de bicarbonate de soude NE DEVRAIT PAS être avalé. Le rince-bouche n'est pas dangereux si de petites quantités sont avalées accidentellement. </li> <li>Votre enfant devrait utiliser le rince-bouche de bicarbonate de soude plusieurs fois par jour, au besoin, après les repas et au coucher. </li></ul> <p>Si votre enfant n'est pas assez vieux pour se rincer la bouche et cracher le rince-bouche de bicarbonate de soude, vous pouvez nettoyer les dents et les gencives de votre enfant avec une brosse à dents douce trempée dans le rince-bouche. Si votre enfant a des ulcères dans la bouche, vous pouvez utiliser une Toothette® plutôt qu'une brosse à dents pour nettoyer la bouche de votre enfant. </p> <p>Demandez à votre enfant de bien se rincer la bouche avec le rince-bouche de bicarbonate de soude après qu'il ou elle a vomi. Le fait de brosser les dents sans d'abord neutraliser les acides gastriques dans la bouche pourrait causer la détérioration de l'émail des dents. </p><h2>Quelles mesures devriez-vous prendre quand votre enfant utilise ce médicament?</h2> <p>Si votre enfant a des ulcères de la bouche, il devrait éviter les aliments qui irritent la bouche. Les aliments à éviter sont :</p> <ul><li>les agrumes et les jus d'agrumes, tels que le jus d'orange, le jus de citron et le jus de tomates; </li> <li>les aliments épicés; </li> <li>les aliments durs ou croquants, tels que les croustilles au maïs; </li> <li>les aliments qui sont très chauds. </li></ul> <p>Si votre enfant a des ulcères de la bouche, donnez-lui des aliments faciles à mâcher et à avaler. Voici des exemples de ces aliments :</p> <ul><li>laits frappés; </li> <li>céréales cuites; </li> <li>œufs brouillés;</li> <li>fruits et légumes tendres et en purée, tels que compote de pommes et pommes de terre en purée; </li> <li>crèmes-desserts au lait, crèmes-desserts et gelées (Jell-O®); </li> <li>yogourt glacé, sorbet ou crème glacée. </li></ul> <p>Votre enfant peut également sucer des morceaux de glace ou des sucettes glacées pour aider à soulager les ulcères de la bouche.</p> <p>Des pailles peuvent être utilisées pour boire les liquides.</p> <p>Si les ulcères de la bouche de votre enfant s'aggravent, parlez au médecin ou à l'infirmière de votre enfant pour connaître d'autres remèdes.</p> <p>Pour obtenir d'autres suggestions, ou si vous avez des préoccupations en ce qui concerne la diète de votre enfant, demandez à parler à un ou à une diététiste.</p> <p>La plupart des rince-bouche vendus dans les pharmacies ou les épiceries ne devraient pas être utilisés. Ils peuvent contenir beaucoup d'alcool, et ils peuvent assécher ou irriter la bouche et les gencives. Les agents aromatisants et colorants peuvent également être irritants. </p>
