World widely parents are becoming quite aware of the fact that initial ages of a baby need a proper baby health care in terms of avoiding risk of infectious diseases. Taking care of your baby health is the primer element of delivering a good parenting. It is also believed that baby names determined the long lasting effect on babies’ health. Before giving birth to a baby, parents indulge in a lot of research about baby health care tips; they even give preference to many sources such as Internet, baby care books, baby health blogs and elder’s advice at home. It is seen that huge number parents are now using internet as a primer source.
Mostly babies born healthy and adapt to the outside world easily but any minor setbacks in babies’ health can be upsetting for parents or family. I firmly believe that effective baby health guidelines can lead to a better healthy living of your baby. Baby health has number of elements such as cleanliness, fresh air, and sunlight, sleep rest and activity, Clothing, food etc. The nutritional needs of a baby are different from the adults.
Healthy food brings the activeness:
According to a research, mother’s milk is the best feed for your baby’s health. In case your baby is not breastfeeding properly then you should switch to some other food options. Other than breastfeeding you can go for cow milk for your baby after the consultation from the pediatrician. If your baby is gaining weight steadily then you don’t need to start food before your baby is 6 months old, after six months you can start giving solid foods to your baby. Before selecting a good solid food you should prepare a checklist of your baby’s taste or choice as I have seen many parents of 10 months old baby who complain about their baby’s lack of interest in new food. Your 7-8 months baby can have homely cooked food such as cereals, rice, wheat etc but it is advised to give in small quantities so that your baby can get habitual of health food. While purchasing solid food from the market or a baby shop you must need to check the ingredients, expiry date, and other details about the product. It should not contain preservatives and artificial flavors. Plenty of purified water is good for your baby health.
Growing time of your baby needs proper attention:
Babies grow more rapidly within their first year than at any other time in life. So you need to take care of your baby in the initial stage of life. Hygiene and cleanliness is the priority parameter for a better healthy living of baby as well as adults. Baby bathing should be carefully done with good products; baby skin is generally very soft and prone to infection easily. Use baby care products of good quality. Most mothers will be taught by the hospital staff, to bathe their new babies every single day. Do not use diaper every time as it can cause rashes on soft baby skin.
