Important points for the care of your Newborn baby:

Important points for the care of your Newborn baby:
  • Aim for direct skin-to-skin contact with your baby soon after birth. The first yellowish breast milk (colostrum), though produced in small about, is enough to meet the needs of your baby.
  • A crying baby may need body contact. Pick her up; don’t worry about spoiling her.
  • Bathe a newborn with plain lukewarm water for the first 7 to 10 days of life. Soap and oil may be used later. There is no need to buy medicated soaps and expensive baby soaps and oils. In fact, some babies may develop skin rash with their use. Any non-scented bath soap and a locally preferred oil like till (sesame) oil, coconut oil, groundnut oil or mustard oil is adequate. There is no need to go in for almond or olive oil. Talcum powder, including special baby powder, irritates a baby’s nostrils and can cause severe lung disease. At times, it gets caked in the skin folds. Avoid using all types of powders. If you fee you must use it, restricts its application to the nappy area or where the skin tends to chafe, never buy prickly heat powders; they are often medicated and unsafe for babies. Some children get skin rashes with gram flour or Milk cream. In general, we do not recommend their application.
  • Do not try to push the foreskin of a male child’s penis to separate it from the soft front portion. It is meant to protect the delicate part of the penis.
  • Do not put oil into the ears and nostrils of the newborn. Oil, if aspirated into the lungs, can be dangerous. The baby’s nose may sometimes be obstructed by thick secretions. These should be moistened with cotton soaked in water and then removed gently with a clean cloth. Do not clean the tongue and mouth of a baby. Avoid pacifiers (dummies); besides interfering with proper feeding habits, pacifiers increase the risk of infections (including middle ear infections) and malocclusion of the teeth.
  • Never use ear buds or cotton buds for the baby. After a bath, use a corner of the towel to clean the external ear. The wax normally found in the ear canal protects it. Do not try to remove it. Also, do not blow into the baby’s ears after a bath.

CHILD IMMUNIZATION

WHAT IS IMMUNIZATION ?
This is giving a vaccine by mouth or injection to make a child resistant to a specific
virus or bacterium. The diseases your child will be immunized against are infectious
and unpleasant; some are fatal, while others may cause permanent disability.
What illnesses can be vaccinated against ?
Your child usually needs immunization against the following diseases. In areas where tuberculosis (TB) is common, children are given a tuberculin skin test and, if it is positive, a chest X-ray. Polio (poliomyelitis) A virus that affects the nervous system and can cause permanent paralysis, or even death if it affects the chest muscles. Diphtheria A serious throat infection that can spread to the heart and nervous system. Tetanus A potentially fatal bacterial disease that can paralyze the muscles, causing painful spasms. Pertussis (whooping cough) A bacterial illness that causes persistent severe coughing, and can result in vomiting, convulsions, and lung damage. Hib (Haemophilus influenzae b) A bacterial infection that causes a range of serious illnesses, including meningitis and pneumonia. Chickenpox A virus that produces a rash of blisters; may lead to pneumonia and encephalitis. Measles A virus that can cause chest infections, convulsions, and permanent brain damage. Mumps A viral infection that can cause painful inflammation of the salivary glands. It can affect the nervous system and cause meningitis. Rubella A virus that produces a rash and fever, but causes serious birth defects in unborn babies. Hepatitis B A virus that causes liver disease. Pneumococcal meningitis A bacterial form of meningitis linked with septicemia and chest and ear infections. Can cause long-term complications.

When will my child be vaccinated? 

The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Family Physicians recommend the following schedule:

  • Birth Hep B #1 (hepatitis)
  • 2 months Hep B #2; DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis); Hib (Haemophilus influenzae); IPV (inactivated polio vaccine); PCV (pneumococcal vaccine)
  • 4 months DTaP; Hib; IPV; PCV
  • 6 months Hep B #3; DTaP; Hib; IPV; PCV
  • 12–18 months DTaP; Hib; PCV; MMR #1 (measles, mumps, rubella); varicella (chickenpox)
  • 4–6 years DTaP; IPV; MMR #2.


The Canadian Paediatric Society recommends the following schedule:
  • Birth Hep B #1 (hepatitis—may be administered in infancy or preadolescence)
  • 1 month Hep B #2
  • 2 months DaPTP-Hib #1 (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio [given orally as IPV in some provinces], Haemophilusinfluenzae); pneumococcal vaccine #1; meningitis C vaccine #1
  • 4 months DaPTP-Hib #2; pneumococcal vaccine #2; meningitis C vaccine #2
  • 6 months DaPTP-Hib #3; pneumococcal vaccine #3; Hep B #3; meningitis C vaccine #3
  • 12–15 months MMR #1 (measles, mumps, rubella); varicella (chickenpox); pneumococcal vaccine #4
  • 18 months DaPTP-Hib #4
  • 4–6 years DaPTP; MMR #2.

Baby teeth development



How can I help my child have healthy teeth ?

Start brushing your baby’s teeth in the morning and
evening as soon as they appear. Initially you can
hold him on your lap and brush from behind. When
he’s old enough to sit or stand unaided, brush from
the front. Even when he can brush by himself, you
should supervise his technique. Only give fruit juice
at mealtimes and avoid bedtime drinks unless he
brushes afterward. If your child has sweet food, get
him to eat it all at once rather than lingering over it.
Encourage him to choose healthy snacks and make
sure his diet is rich in calcium, minerals, and vitamins.
Begin dental checkups at an early age.

Are carbonated diet drinks better for teeth ?

No. Carbonated diet drinks don’t contain sugar, so
you might think they’re tooth-friendly, but their
acidity makes them harmful—when dissolved,
carbon dioxide makes carbonic acid. Put a coin into
a diet drink and watch it being eaten away.

Does my child need fluoride drops ?

It depends on where you live. Sometimes fluoride is
already in the water, either occurring naturally or
because it has been added by the water provider. If
your area doesn’t have fluoride in the water, your
child may need drops from babyhood onward. Too
much fluoride may discolor the teeth permanently,
so don’t give fluoride drops without first seeking
advice from your doctor or pediatrician.

Can medicines affect my child’s teeth ?

All medicines containing sugar can have an adverse
effect on a child’s teeth. Many are now available
in sugar-free formulations that still taste good to
children. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for sugarfree
alternatives whenever possible. Some antibiotics
can also be detrimental to dental enamel, especially
tetracycline. This is why they shouldn’t be given to
children under 12 years old (or to women who are
pregnant or breast-feeding).


HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TAKE MY CHILD TO THE DENTIST ?
Your child needs to visit the dentist regularly—at least every six months—for checkups, even if her teeth look perfect. It’s important for her to get used to sitting in the chair without fear. Look for a dentist who is good with young children—ask your friends, neighbors, or doctor.
When should I start taking her to the dentist ?
I think the earlier you start, the better. You can
leave it until the age of two. Better still, you can
take her as soon as she has teeth, even if it’s just
to watch you sitting in the chair (if going to the
dentist usually worries you, try to hide the fact!).
At first your child will probably want to sit on
your lap to be “examined”—in reality these visits
will be little more than a social call because there
aren’t many teeth to examine. As she grows older,
she’ll be able sit in the chair on her own.
What if my child does need treatment ?
Try to be calm, but don’t pretend it won’t hurt.
Many new techniques reduce pain and avoid the
noise of the drill, but some treatments can hurt. If a
cavity is shallow, she may need no injection, but a
deeper one may demand an injection of local
anesthetic—the gum can be numbed first with a
cream. The dentist may recommend a sedative or
even a general anesthetic, in which case ask for the
treatment to be carried out in a hospital where an
anesthesiologist will be present during the procedure.
Will my child need a filling ?
Most children’s primary teeth never need a filling,
but it’s important to treat any cavity before it
enlarges and becomes painful (if it isn’t already)
and the tooth needs to be taken out. A child
shouldn’t have to lose a primary tooth prematurely
since these teeth affect speech development. Loss
of primary teeth too early can also cause poor
positioning of the permanent teeth.

Step-by-Step instructions to Make Handicraft by just folding the paper for your child

There is an art of folding uncut sheets of paper into decorative objects such as birds or animals and to many unbelievable structures. I'm going to attach few of the books which will show you the step-by-step procedures to make the decorative objects. These books can be used as a text or lesson plan for individuals, schools students. Start from the beginning and fold through it, One model at a time. Diagrame symbols, techniques and terminology are introduced progressively, and each model builds the skills aquired in completing prior ones.

Every model has been tested by novices. Nothing included here is impossible, but some areas require to perfect. If you find a new technique especially difficult to acquire, persevere. Start again from the beginning, or put the model aside and try again later.
