2- Breastfeeding your new baby ...Breast milk provides all the nutrients that babies need for the first six months of their life and guards against many illnesses and allergies. Also, breastfeeding can help build a special closeness with your baby. Breastfeeding is one of the best things you can do for your baby. ||Use each feeding as an opportunity to build your newborn's sense of security, trust and comfort. ||Design a kid corner and fill it with things safe for your toddler like Tupperware, toys, empty boxes, etc. ||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. ||A great deal of body heat is lost through a bare head, so make sure your baby wears a hat if she will be in a cold environment ||Put a photo of a face – yours – on the side of the cot for your baby to look at. Human faces fascinate babies ||Until your baby is 6 months old, he'll get all the hydration he needs from breast milk or formula, even in hot weather ||As a new mommy, sleep when your baby sleeps. Silence your phone and ignore the dishes in the sink ||Don’t forget to put labels with date and time on your expressed milk bottles to check expiry dates ||Alternate the first breast you offer at each feed ||
Foods causing disturbing or embarrassing side effects


Can freshly harvested or just cooked food cause side effects? Yes. Food may cause side effects.

However, it doesn't mean that you should avoid the food represented on this list. Most side effects do not occur in everyone and they occur not every time you eat such food. And besides that, the significance of most foods (especially fruits, vegetables and even chocolate) outweighs the possible side effects they may cause.

Here is a list of disturbing or embarrassing side effects that may be caused by food.

These foods have odors which are picked up by the blood system and are exhaled through the lungs up for several days after a meal. These foods are:

  • Onions / Garlic / Cabbage / Curry / Alcohol / Dairy foods (in lactose intolerant persons) / Sugars


Body Odor
According to research, red meat and processed foods consumption has a negative impact on body odor attractiveness.

  • Fructose containing foods - onions, artichokes, pears, wheat
