Infant constipation is the passage of hard, dry bowel movements — not necessarily the absence of daily bowel movements ||Make sure your baby wears a hat if she will be in a cold environment ||Only close friends and relatives should visit you during your first month at home. They should not visit if they are sick ||In case of eczema, use mild, unscented body and laundry soaps. Pat baby's skin dry; don't rub ||After the first hectic weeks, babies take longer naps at predictable times. And you'll become a much better time manager ||Breastfeeding releases Oxytocin which causes contractions of the uterus, helping to stop hemorrhage and initiating weight loss ||The AAP recommends sponge baths until the umbilical cord stump falls off — which might take up to three weeks ||Do not postpone your baby’s vaccines unless he is sick or feverish ||Don't let your baby nap in the car seat after you're home as a substitute for crib since it's harder for young babies to breathe in that position. ||Never pick up your infant by the hands or wrists as this can put stress on the elbows.

Statement by the American Academy of Ophthalmology regarding Children’s Vision and Eye Health and 3-D Digital Products‏

 

 

Recently Nintendo issued a warning about their new 3-D handheld game device that urged parents to prevent children under age 6 years from prolonged viewing of the device's digital images, in order to avoid possible damage to visual development. Other 3-D device companies have issued similar warnings with their new products.

The American Academy of Ophthalmology (Academy) provides the following information and recommendations regarding use of 3-D digital products by children and adults. The Academy's statement is based on accepted medical knowledge and currently available research regarding visual development and function in children and adults.

At this time there are no conclusive studies on the short- and/or long-term effects of 3-D digital products on eye and visual development, health, or function in children, nor are there persuasive, conclusive theories on how 3-D digital products could cause damage in children with healthy eyes. The development of normal 3-D vision in children is stimulated as they use their eyes in day-to-day social and natural environments, and this development is largely complete by age three years.

Children who have eye conditions such as amblyopia (an imbalance in visual strength between the two eyes), strabismus (misaligned eyes), or other conditions that persistently inhibit focusing, depth perception or normal 3-D vision, would have difficulty seeing digital 3-D images. That does not mean that vision disorders can be caused by 3-D digital products. However, children (or adults) who have these vision disorders may be more likely to experience headaches and/or eye fatigue when viewing 3-D digital images.

If a healthy child consistently develops headaches or tired eyes or cannot clearly see the images when using 3-D digital products, this may indicate a vision or eye disorder. If such problems occur, the Academy recommends that the child be given a comprehensive exam by an ophthalmologist.
