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. ||Never pick up your infant by the hands or wrists as this can put stress on the elbows. Lifting under the armpits is the safest way ||Use a firm mattress and avoid placing your baby on thick, fluffy padding that may interfere with breathing if your baby's face presses against it ||Your toddler may be clumsy simply due to her trials to master so many new physical skills at the same time. The more active she is, the more likely she will drop things, run into things, or fall down. ||Don’t rush into solving your kid's problems. Give him the chance to conclude, all on his own, that things are going to be okay. ||If your child's scalp is very crusty, put some baby oil or olive oil on the scalp 1 hour before washing to soften the crust ||Trim your baby’s nails weekly after a bath when the nails are softened ||Reading aloud will help your baby be a better reader when she's older ||Never tie a pacifier to your child’s crib or around your child’s neck or hand. This could cause serious injury or even death ||Preservatives, fragrances, harsh soap, rough fabric, sweat, and stress can be potential irritants for babies suffering from eczema ||
Our baby teeth seem discolored. Should we be concerned?
Baby teeth, also called primary teeth, are typically off-white or ivory. Baby teeth can become discolored for many reasons, including:
  • Inadequate brushing. If baby teeth aren't brushed properly, bacteria (plaque) may form on the teeth — which can lead to tooth discoloration.
  • Medication use. Liquid supplementary multivitamins, which have been given to the toddlers, contain iron and this results dark stains on their teeth. Taking the antibiotic tetracycline during pregnancy can cause discolored baby teeth, too.
  • Tooth or gum injury. Trauma to baby teeth or gums may give baby teeth a pink or gray tint.
  • Weak enamel. A genetic problem with enamel formation may lead to discolored baby teeth.
  • Excessive fluoride. Too much fluoride (fluorosis) may cause bright white spots or streaks on the teeth.
  • Newborn jaundice. A baby who develops jaundice after birth may have baby teeth with a green tint.
  • Serious illness. If a baby suffers from a chronic disease or high recurring fever, his teeth become discolored
 
If the discoloration is caused by inadequate brushing, more thorough brushing — using water and a small, soft-bristled toothbrush or the fingertip variety designed for infants — is likely to help. There's no need to use toothpaste until your child learns to
spit, usually about age 2 or 3.
 
If your child drinks from a bottle, remember that sipping milk or juice throughout the day or while falling asleep may lead to tooth decay. Don't let your child carry a bottle during the day, and don't put your baby to bed with a bottle — unless it contains a small amount of plain water.
 
In other cases, treatment options may include bleaching the discolored teeth or simply watching the teeth for signs of other problems. Discuss your concerns about your son's baby teeth with his doctor. He or she may offer a referral to a pediatric dentist.
