Proper weight gain is the sign that your baby is having enough milk. Not crying and not comparing with other kids ||Whenever possible, don't get involved in your kids' clash. Step in only if there's a danger of physical harm. ||Expressing milk should be painless. If it hurts, stop. ||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. ||Plan for regular family meals. Enjoy being together as a family and give a chance for everyone to decompress from the day ||Sleep sacks and sufficient layers of clothing are safe alternatives to blankets for children less than six months of age ||AAP recommends to avoid blankets (a potential suffocation hazard) until your baby reaches her first birthday ||If every feeding is painful or your baby isn't gaining weight, ask a lactation consultant or your baby's doctor for help ||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. ||Bathe baby for no more than ten minutes in warm water especially if he shows signs of skin eczema. ||
Should i offer my baby some water?

 

You should offer your child water freely as much as he/she wants. Some children prefer to drink sweetened beverages. This is not advised and might be harmful on the long term.

 

Generally, offer your child the same water you are drinking.

 

If you are giving your child bottled water, review the fluoride content of the water. Fluoride is a mineral needed to prevent dental caries and is a component of our bones. Your child needs a minimum of 0.3mg/liter if his/her age is 6 months to 3 years, 0.65mg/liter if his/her age is 3 to 16 years. If your child's drinking water contains fluorides less than what was just defined, ask your doctor or call 2356 for fluoride supplementation advice.
