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. ||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. ||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 ||The pacifier’s guard or shield should have ventilation holes so the baby can breathe if the shield does get into the mouth ||During the day, don't try to catch up on chores while the baby sleeps. Lie down and rest ||Set aside time to spend with each child individually, so they don't feel like they're competing for your attention ||Don't ever be afraid to ask for help from a friend or relative. Time away will let you recharge. ||Use a firm mattress and avoid placing your baby on thick, fluffy padding that may interfere with breathing if your baby's face presses against it ||The only acceptable punishment for our children is time-out. No spanking, no shouting and no threatening ||Only close friends and relatives should visit you during your first month at home. They should not visit if they are sick ||
Should i offer my baby some water?

 

You should offer your child water freely as much as he/she wants. Some children prefer to drink sweetened beverages. This is not advised and might be harmful on the long term.

 

Generally, offer your child the same water you are drinking.

 

If you are giving your child bottled water, review the fluoride content of the water. Fluoride is a mineral needed to prevent dental caries and is a component of our bones. Your child needs a minimum of 0.3mg/liter if his/her age is 6 months to 3 years, 0.65mg/liter if his/her age is 3 to 16 years. If your child's drinking water contains fluorides less than what was just defined, ask your doctor or call 2356 for fluoride supplementation advice.
