To help your kid stand up to negative peer pressure, encourage him to talk, use role playing with him, get to know the parents of your child's friends and finally deal with your own peer pressure. ||AAP recommends to avoid blankets (a potential suffocation hazard) until your baby reaches her first birthday ||Design a kid corner and fill it with things safe for your toddler like Tupperware, toys, empty boxes, etc. ||The more you help your toddler put his feelings into words (“I’m mad. I want the truck.” “I’m sad. I can’t find my bear.”), the less they will show aggressive behaviour. ||The most important thing on growth curves is how your baby grows over time. If he's small but growing at the appropriate rate, there's usually no cause for concern. ||As a new baby mother who has to breast feed you should make sure that you drink lots of water ... Make a habit out of drinking a glass of water every time you feed your baby. This will ensure that you are getting your water, and help your body produce enough milk. ||Don't forget to watch what you say and do around your child: Imitation is one of the ways toddlers learn socially acceptable behavior. ||Contact the doctor if your newborn isn't gaining weight, wets fewer than six diapers a day or shows little interest in feedings ||Put a photo of a face – yours – on the side of the cot for your baby to look at. Human faces fascinate babies ||Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently. It’s not the type of soap that prevents the spread of bacteria and viruses; it’s how you wash your hands. ||
Nutritional advices


Basic advices for this age:

 

Allow your child to eat solid foods as much as he/she needs. He/she controls the quantity; you (the parent) control the quality.

 

You are advised to offer your child at least one meal containing fruits &/or vegetables &/or salad, at least another meal containing animal proteins (other than milk and dairy products) e.g. egg, fish, chicken or meat (all better boiled and mashed). These are the two essential meals for your child at this age in addition to breast feeding (or formula feeding in some children). He/She should have these two meals at least 5 days a week regularly.

 

If your child is not receiving these essential meals for more than 2 weeks in a row you need to contact the doctor or 2356 for advice including vitamin and mineral supplementation. Cereals and carbohydrates are allowed but are not daily essentials. Note: Better avoid cereals containing milk if your child is breastfed.

 

Better avoided foods include milk (until the age of one year) and dairy products including yoghurt and cheese for all those who were exclusively breast fed (until the age of nine months); salt and sugar (until the age of one year); oranges and citreous fruits until the age of 8 months.

 

Never force or threaten your child to eat. You just offer him/her to eat the right choice of food then leave to him/her to decide when to eat and how much to eat. On the other hand, if he/she refuses do not allow other unnecessary foods (sweets, fried potatoes..etc). Be patient, it might take few days until your child eats the proper food you are offering.
