Don't forget to watch what you say and do around your child: Imitation is one of the ways toddlers learn socially acceptable behavior. ||The AAP recommends sponge baths until the umbilical cord stump falls off — which might take up to three weeks ||Never pick up your infant by the hands or wrists as this can put stress on the elbows.

Don’t worry ||Sleep sacks and sufficient layers of clothing are safe alternatives to blankets for children less than six months of age ||Infants raised on breast milk tend to score higher on tests of mental development than those on formula ||Expressing milk should be painless. If it hurts, stop. ||Ask your baby's doctor about vitamin D supplements for the baby, especially if you're breast-feeding ||Your baby should have 4-6 wet diapers per day. This is a great way to monitor if they're getting enough milk ||Design a kid corner and fill it with things safe for your toddler like Tupperware, toys, empty boxes, etc. ||
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.
