Always check the water temperature with your hand before bathing your baby. Be sure the room is comfortably warm, too ||The only acceptable punishment for our children is time-out. No spanking, no shouting and no threatening ||Set aside time to spend with each child individually, so they don't feel like they're competing for your attention ||Your baby's foot may seem flat, but that's because a layer of fat covers the arch. Within two to three years, this extra padding will disappear. ||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. ||Don't ever be afraid to ask for help from a friend or relative. Time away will let you recharge. ||Look for early signs of hunger, such as stirring and stretching, sucking motions and lip movements. Fussing and crying are later cues ||Don't allow your pet on the couch while you are holding baby. This makes dogs bigger and taller in relation to your infant and may encourage aggression. ||Use each feeding as an opportunity to build your newborn's sense of security, trust and comfort. ||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. ||
How to Choose a Pediatrician

 

With a list of doctors in hand, call the office of each. Explain that you are looking for a pediatrician for your child, and inquire about the doctor's background and training, as well as general office procedures. Here is some key information you might inquire about and consider during this first meeting:

    • What medical school did the pediatrician attend, and where did he or she undergo postgraduate and residency training? 
    • What are the doctor's present hospital appointments? If it becomes necessary for your youngster to be hospitalized, where would he be admitted?
    • Is the pediatrician's office conveniently located? Is it easily accessible by automobile or public transportation?
    • Are the office hours convenient for your own schedule? If you are a working parent, you may desire evening or weekend hours.
    • Is the doctor in a group practice with other physicians? Does another physician cover for the doctor at times? Who handles phone calls when the office is closed or during vacations?
    • Do you sense a genuine interest by the doctor in the problems of your child, including particular health disorders he may have?
    • Do both the physician and the office staff appear amicable and courteous? Do they demonstrate compassion and patience? Or do you feel rushed in the office, as though the doctor is eager to move on to the next patient?
    • Does the doctor communicate clearly, and does the doctor make an effort to ensure that all your questions are answered?
    • If your child should ever develop a complex illness that necessitates the care of one or more specialists, will your pediatrician coordinate care among all the doctors providing treatment?
