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. ||Always keep the number of Poison Centre posted beside your phone ||The more you help your toddler put his feelings into words (“I’m mad. I want the truck.” “I’m sad. I can’t find my bear.”), the less they will show aggressive behaviour. ||Don’t forget to put labels with date and time on your expressed milk bottles to check expiry dates ||Until your baby is 6 months old, he'll get all the hydration he needs from breast milk or formula, even in hot weather ||Children who gain weight quickly during their first six months are more likely to be obese or at risk of obesity by age 3 ||Trim your baby’s nails weekly after a bath when the nails are softened ||Reading aloud will help your baby be a better reader when she's older. ||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. ||Every milestone is an accomplishment, but it means your child is more independent and needs you a little less ||
Button batteries are dangerous to kids

 

The coin-sized batteries children swallow come from many devices, most often mini remote controls. Other places you may find them are: singing greeting cards, watches and bathroom.

It takes as little as two hours to cause severe burns once a coin-sized button battery has been swallowed.

Once burning begins, damage can continue even after the battery is removed.

Kids can still breathe with the button battery in their throats. It may not be obvious at first that something is wrong.

Repairing the damage is painful and can require multiple surgeries.

The batteries can become lodged in the throat, burning the esophagus.

Top Tips for Battery Safety

    • Search your home, and any place your child goes, for gadgets that may contain button batteries.
    • Secure button battery-controlled devices out of sight and reach of children and keep loose batteries locked away.
    • Share this life-saving information with caregivers, friends, family members and sitters.

In Case of Emergency 

    • Go to the emergency room immediately. Tell doctors and nurses that your child may have swallowed a battery. If possible, provide the medical team with the identification number found on the battery’s package.
    • Do not let the child eat or drink until a chest x-ray can determine if a battery is present.
    • Do not induce vomiting.
    • Call the National Toxicology Institute Hotline at 800777099 for additional treatment information.
