All your Baby Needed

Children's Teeth

Parents, in fact, are responsible for making sure their children's teeth are clean until the child reaches five to six years of age! This is because, on average, younger children do not have the manual dexterity required to brush teeth effectively.


Why should you go to great lengths to brush your child's teeth? The most important reason is that tooth decay occurs faster in children than in adults. By brushing your child's teeth, you remove the plaque bacteria which are responsible for this tooth decay.

Despite the protests and the fight your child may give you, it is extremely important that you brush their teeth to reduce the amount of placque causing bacteria in their mouths. Another reason to help your child learn to brush is that this helps them develop a crucial habit which will last a lifetime.

Every parent wants a healthy baby, But?

When a healthy baby gets sick, there's no reason to panic, but occasional infections and fevers are inevitable. Even parents who have plenty of experience with sick babies can have a tough time distinguishing normal fussiness and mild illnesses from more serious problems.
Trust your instincts. If you think you should call the doctor, go ahead. After hours, you may be able to call a 24-hour nurse line offered through the doctor's office, clinic or your health insurance company.
An occasional illness is usually nothing to worry about in an otherwise healthy baby — but sometimes it's best to contact the doctor. Look for these signs and symptoms:

* Changes in appetite. If your baby refuses several feedings in a row or eats poorly, contact the doctor.
* Changes in mood. If your baby is lethargic or unusually difficult to rouse, tell the doctor right away. Also let the doctor know if your baby is persistently irritable or has inconsolable crying jags.
* Tender navel or penis. Contact the doctor if your baby's umbilical area or penis suddenly becomes red or starts to ooze or bleed.
* Fever. Mild fevers are common and usually harmless, but keep an eye on the thermometer. If your baby is younger than age 3 months, contact the doctor for any fever. If your baby is age 3 months or older and has an oral temperature lower than 102 F (38.9 C), encourage rest and offer plenty of fluids. Call the doctor if your baby seems unusually irritable, lethargic or uncomfortable. If your baby has an oral temperature of 102 F (38.9 C) or higher, give your baby acetaminophen (Tylenol, others). Call the doctor if the fever doesn't respond to the medication or lasts longer than one day.
* Diarrhea. Contact the doctor if your baby's stools are especially loose or watery.
* Vomiting. Occasional spitting up is normal. Contact the doctor if your baby spits up large portions of multiple feedings or vomits forcefully after feedings.
* Dehydration. Contact the doctor if your baby doesn't wet a diaper for six hours or longer or if the soft spot on top of your baby's head seems to sink. Crying without tears or a dry mouth without saliva also warrants a prompt call to the doctor.
* Constipation. If your baby has fewer bowel movements than usual for a few days, contact the doctor.
* Colds. Contact the doctor if your baby has a cold that interferes with his or her breathing, produces thick nasal discharge that's yellow, green or gray, or is accompanied by severe coughing.
* Ear trouble. Contact the doctor if your baby doesn't respond normally to sounds or has fluid draining from his or her ears.
* Rash. Contact the doctor if a rash covers a large area, appears infected or if your baby suddenly develops an unexplained rash — especially if the rash is accompanied by a fever.
* Eye discharge. If one or both eyes are pink, red or leaking mucus, contact the doctor.

Is your baby not eating well? Find out why

Is your baby not eating well? Do you have to struggle to make your child eat? Find out how you can handle this problem and share your experience with other parents. Scroll down to let us know your story.

Hunger is a natural instinct and every child is born with an appetite, which is sufficient to take care of his/her needs. When an adult feels hungry he eats as much as he wants. Let us try to understand why a child won't eat even though he/she is healthy as all mothers complain.

There are two aspects of feeding a child. One is nutritional and the other emotional and both are equally important. The problem of food refusal usually starts around six months and reaches its peak at about one year.

Solid Foods for Your 10-12 Month old Baby - We know what we like and we want to feed ourselves!

Your 10-12 Month old baby has developed a few favorite foods by now. He may also have developed a preference for feeding himself and a distaste for thin runny purees.

As we note in our Is my Baby a Picky Eater page, your baby may suddenly begin to refuse to eat. She's simply too busy to stop exploring her world and she may get quite miffed when you put her in her highchair to eat. With her independence growing, she may also begin to show preferences for certain foods and Refuse to be Spoon Fed. Take heart - this stage of baby feeding, while quite challanging, will soon pass. Let your baby be your guide and try not to get frustrated. It's important for baby to decide the foods she wants to eat. Before you know it, your baby will be eating all the adult foods and enjoying adult meals.

As with your 8-10 month old, continue to expand baby's palate with new flavors. Experiment with new spices (8 months old) and new flavorful combinations. Offer your little foodie a yummy chicken curry for example.
Pasta, veggies, and fruit should all be soft cooked and possibly mashed with a fork or masher. (Bananas need only be mashed.)

Meats and proteins such as egg yolk, should be cooked and pureed or chopped into small soft bits. If offering Tofu, you need not cook it first.

Remember, baby will not have molars until sometime around the 12-18 month age range. Foods should be easily mashed between the gums.

babies often bite on 10 month 2 weeks

Biting hurts. At this age, however, it's very unlikely your baby does it out of anger. Older babies often bite because they're teething and may be seeking some pain relief. Some advice:

Play it cool: Hard as it may be, try not to shriek loudly, a response your baby might find interesting and then try to re-create by biting again. Babies this age won't understand too much discipline, so use simple statements and actions. Try a simple "No!" or "Ow!" and a firm "No biting" or "That hurts Mommy." Then show your disapproval by physically separating yourself briefly from your baby. If your baby bites someone else, don't pick her up -- pay attention to the bitten person instead. Ignoring your Baby is the only "punishment" she needs at this age.


My baby is mastering motor control — both "gross" (or large) motor skills, like crawling and standing, and "fine" motor skills, such as picking up objects between forefinger and thumb. It's especially important to keep choking hazards out of reach when your baby has these new pickup skills (and still likes exploring things with mouth and tongue). Coins, buttons, Small Toy parts
, and food that falls to the ground are all potential problems. Consider vacuuming more often at this stag

My baby's personality is really emerging now. She may be very social, granting broad smiles to everyone she meets, or a little more shy, hiding her face when well-meaning strangers try to engage her. She'll gesture for your attention and may wave goodbye when she sees my head for the door. She's also developing a mind of her own, which you may run up against when you try to put her in her car seat or stroller.

Organic Baby Products

Going organic for safety in baby care

Parents, consumers, and manufacturers of baby products are all growing concerned over the safety of infants and babies. You probably would not want to think of your baby eating or drinking chemicals and artificial ingredients and most importantly, you do not want to imagine your baby experiencing an allergic reaction caused by whatever is in what he is wearing. These problems can be caused by artificially-prepared items and organic baby products serve as a possible solution to these issues.

All natural with no additives

Organic baby products are created without the use of antibiotics, pesticides, additives, fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, growth hormones, and other chemicals or man-made ingredients. These products are marked with a certification that proves that they are indeed free from those harmful ingredients. However, before you buy that first organic product for your baby, remember to be wary of how it is made and if the certification is indeed authentic.

Organic is better

There are childcare experts and physicians who believe that organic products are actually beneficial in aiding the development of your baby. Since a baby's immune system is still weak, you need to make sure that he is safe from toxins coming from his surrounding environment: the clothes he is wearing, the food he is eating, and the toys he is playing with. Organic products are known to be toxin-free and organic foods also contain essential nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants that can aid in keeping your baby healthy. Organic clothes are hypo-allergenic, more durable, and softer because they are made from natural materials such as cotton.

Natural ingredients

Organic infant formulas for babies that cannot be breastfed are able to meet with their nutritional requirements through dairy milk and soy. Organic baby food like cereals, puréed food, snacks, and frozen food also have organic options available in the market nowadays. They usually contain whole grains and naturally-grown ingredients like fruits and vegetables.

Personal care products that are organic like lotions, diaper creams, soaps, body washes, shampoos, oils, and powders are friendly and gentle to your baby's skin to avoid allergies. They usually contain ingredients like natural oils from vegetables and natural butters. Finally, clothes can be made with 100% pure cotton that is grown organically. Some manufacturers also combine cotton with other natural fibers like bamboo, soy, wool, and hemp.

When the price is not right

Perhaps the only downside to organic baby products is that they are more expensive compared to ordinary ones. This makes them inaccessible to many parents and caregivers. So don't lose sleep over always buying organically if you simply cannot afford it. There are probably more important things to worry about! There are reasons why organic baby products are significantly pricier and among these include the costs of labor, the limited supplies that cannot meet with the high demand of consumers, the costs for getting a certification. But many parents are still inclined to agree that the price of organic products is well worth it if it means protecting their babies from being exposed to unsafe inorganic items.

Creating a safer environment for your baby
Baby Growth



Organic baby products are able to provide more safety for your baby so you can be confident that he or she will grow up well nourished and free from contaminants and toxic elements that may be detrimental to his or her health. Nowadays, you can find a lot of organic products meant especially for babies and they range from the basic necessities like milk formulas and baby food to wearables like clothes and diapers, personal care, and toys.

A Simple 2-Step Plan To Beat The Biggest Baby Growth And Development Problem

By Dalene Joubert.

Let's go ahead and first look how a lack of a clear route troubles parents.
Many parents instinctively know that babies eventually grow up and learn to crawl and walk.
Most parents are totally unaware of all the clear signs along the baby growth and development route.

One of the easiest and best ways to follow your infant's development route, is by following the "baby milestones" -or simply milestones.Merely knowing which milestones to look for goes a very long way towards helping parents to measure their baby's development.

Baby growth and development is more than merely following a specific route. Most parents are unaware that there's a schedule to mastering the milestones. Years' research and observations have proven remedial actions to get baby development back on track should it be too slow. Most parents allow too little time for any remedial actions to take effect and correct development problems.
This only leads to disappointment, more stress and worries... and a persisting baby development problem.So, how do we overcome our baby growth and development worries?Here's a 2-Step Plan to beat the most common baby growth and development problems:
Step 1: Learn the major baby milestones and the accompanying skills your infant must master
Step 2: Learn the schedule for reaching these milestones - when must it be mastered?
However simple these 2 baby growth and development tips may be, they work.

Your 7-month-old: Week 2

How your baby's growing:

By now, you may have already told your baby that the telephone isn't a toy, or that rattles aren't for throwing, or that her sister's hair isn't for pulling. At this age, your baby may begin testing your authority by refusing to follow your simple directions. She's not really being disobedient or willful — just curious.
Your life: Treating yourself well


Being responsible for a tiny creature 24/7 or rushing from work to baby can be rattling. A few midway-through-the-first-year reminders:

Stay healthy. Don't skimp on your own nutrition — whether or not you've lost your pregnancy weight. Avoid caffeine and alcohol: Their stimulating and calming effects are only temporary and wind up making you feel worse later. Do some moderate exercise several times a week, even if it's just walking after parking your car a little farther from work.

Allow yourself plenty of sleep, including naps if possible. And wash your hands a lot and avoid touching your eyes to prevent catching a cold, especially if your baby has much contact with other children.


Get out. Enjoy some fresh air by taking a walk or gardening. Your baby is still small and portable, so take advantage of this before she's a toddler on the go. Venture out on your own, too: Arrange an excursion with a friend or your partner for a little adult conversation, or treat yourself to another activity you miss.

Pamper yourself. Splurge on a massage, a facial, a manicure, or whatever makes you feel special. A nice long bath can do wonders, too.


Get centered. Consider yoga, a stretching class, deep breathing, or other relaxation exercises.

Your 7-month-old's

Recognition skills

Your baby now actively engages in hiding games. Place one of his favorite toys on the floor and cover it with a napkin. Pull the napkin off and say, "There it is!" Cover it again and repeat.

For more fun, hide an object under something and wait for him to discover it. It's one of the easiest ways to keep your baby occupied!



Your baby can remember that the jack-in-the-box pops up at the end of the song — yet he'll still laugh every time. He's also able to recognize different tones and inflections and may burst into tears if you speak harshly.

Stimulating toys and games

Because he likes predictability, your baby enjoys playing the same game or reading the same book over and over. In addition to patty-cake, try adding classics such as "If You're Happy and You Know It" and "This Little Piggy" to your repertoire.

Learning to grab


Your baby's fine motor skills are coming along, too. By now she can probably scoop things up with just one little hand and transfer them from one hand to the other fairly easily. She may also be able to clasp her hands together and sip from a two-handled cup (with your assistance). Before long you'll probably notice the noise level increasing, not only because of your baby's babble, but also because she'll find out how much fun it is to bang objects together.

To encourage fine motor activity, place a toy just out of your baby's reach and watch her try to get it. Of course, this will give her ideas, and she'll soon be rocking back and forth on her hands and knees and may crawl or repeatedly roll over to move about the room. Aid her explorations and mobility by dressing her in loose, comfortable clothes
Teething

While your baby may already have begun teething (the average age is five or six months, though it can start as early as three months or as late as 12 months), about now you can expect to see the two upper central incisors, then the two lateral incisors. Don't be alarmed if your baby has gaps between some of her teeth; teeth often come through the gums at odd angles, and any spaces commonly disappear after all 20 baby teeth have broken through. Once your baby starts teething, you can expect more drooling and experimenting with sounds as she adjusts to having these strange new things in her mouth.

Milk Samples

Two 25ml samples of human breast milk pumped from the same woman, at the same time to illustrate what human breast milk looks like, and how human breast milk can vary. The left hand sample is Foremilk. Foremilk has a higher water content and a lower fat content to satisfy thirst. The right hand sample is Hindmilk. Hindmilk has a lower water content and a higher fat content to satisfy hunger. Although the names may suggest otherwise, hindmilk and foremilk do not flow one after the other respectively. As breastmilk is made continuously including and during the feed itself, the milk is constantly switching between Foremilk and Hindmilk until the baby has had enough

Exclusive breastfeeding

baby growth
Breast milk refers to the milk produced by a mother to feed her baby. Breastfeeding also provides health benefits for the mother. It assist the uterus to return to its pre-pregnancy size and reduces post-partum bleeding as well as assisting the mother to return to her pre-pregnancy weight. Breastfeeding also reduces the risk of breast cancer later in life.

Breast milk refers to the milk produced by a mother to feed her baby. It provides the primary source of nutrition for newborns before they are able to eat and digest other foods; older infants and toddlers may continue to be breastfed. The baby nursing from its own mother is the most ordinary way of obtaining breastmilk, but the milk can be pumped and then fed by baby bottle, cup and/or spoon, supplementation drip system, and nasogastric tube. Breastmilk can be supplied by a woman other than the baby's mother; this is known as wetnursing.



The World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding until six months of age, with solids being introduced at this age. Breastfeeding is recommended for at least twelve months and can continue as long as mother and child wish. Breastfeeding continues to offer health benefits into and after toddlerhood. These benefits include; reduced risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome , increased intelligence, reduced likelihood of contracting middle ear infections and cold and flu bugs, reduced risk of some cancers such as childhood leukemia, lower risk of childhood onset diabetes, reduced risk of asthma and eczema, fewer dental problems, and reduced risk of obesity later in life.

Breast Milk

Not all the properties of breast milk are understood, but its nutrient content is relatively stable. Breast milk is made from the nutrients in the bloodstream and bodily stores. Breastfeeding uses an average of 500 calories per day and helps the mother lose weight after giving birth. The composition of breast milk changes depending on how long the baby nurses at each session, as well as on the age of the child.

Research shows that the milk and energy content of breastmilk actually decreases after the first year. Breastmilk adapts to a toddler's developing system, providing exactly the right amount of nutrition at exactly the right time. In fact, research shows that between the ages of 12 and 24 months, 448 milliliters of human milk provide these percentages of the following minimum daily requirements:


*Energy: 29%

*Folate: 76%

*Protein: 43%

*Vitamin B12: 94%

*Calcium: 36%

*Vitamin C: 60%

*Vitamin A: 75%


The quality of a mother's breast milk may be compromised by stress, bad food habits, chronic illnesses, smoking, and drinking.

It can also appear on the nappy area. It may not be a good sight for you to see your baby with a cradle cap, but there’s nothing to worry about as it is quite common.

Cradle cap is thought to be result of hormonal changes which stimulate secretions from the oil glands in the skin. It usually disappears within a few days using natural treatment, but still can recur.
What to do about it?


* To remove the crusts, massage sorbolene cream or mild baby oil into the affected area 2-3 time daily.



* Leave it on overnight, and wash off at bathtime the next day with a special hypoallergenic shampoo such as Infaderm. Some doctors’ recommend leaving it on for 20 minutes.



* Massage the scalp with a facewasher, soft baby toothbrush or baby brush to lift off the crusts. DO NOT use your nails to pick off the crusts.



* Repeat this procedure everyday until it clears.


How to prevent it?

Wash and massage your baby’s scalp and gently brush their head (even if they don’t have hair) every day.

* Bath your baby in lukewarm water and avoid soaps and cleansing lotions. Use sorbolene for bathtime and nappy changes.



* Put mittens on baby’s hands to stop them from scratching



* Avoid using fabric softeners or wool mix; just use pure soap to wash bab ‎y’s clothes.



* Place a cotton sheet on the floor before you put baby down, do not put her on the carpet. Also vacuum the house regularly.

Once your Baby is past 6 months old, milk alone is just not enough. Your baby needs solid food. In fact, between the ages of 4 to 6 months, babies should start getting used to eating solid foods.


Start with a taste of baby food. Just 1 teaspoon in the beginning. Some babies might love these new tastes while other babies may hate it.


Don't fret if your baby refuses these new foods. You could coax baby by adding a little milk to the baby food, so that baby is assured by the familiar taste. For a breastfed baby, add a little breast milk. For a formula fed baby, add a little formula milk to the baby food.


What you feed baby at this tender age makes a difference to his or her future tastes. Give baby greens at this young age so he or she would grow to love veggies.

Sounds far fetched?

With my kids, that is exactly what happened.

I was on a health food craze and bought plenty of brocolli baby food for them when they were babies. I practically weaned them onto broccoli.

Fast forward to today. My son aged 6, insist that every meal we have at home must include a plate of broccoli.where kids are notorious for not touching their veggies, grabbing the broccoli, eyeing what is left on the plate and once we are off guard, he would grab the entire plate of broccoli and dump everything on his plate and finish it off. That usually means there wouldn't be any broccoli left for us grown ups.


This is the time to get baby to eat and to appreciate carrots, spinach as well as the usual meats that your family might eat. Tofu would be a great food to introduce to baby as it is soft and very healthy. As baby gets older, a healthy porridge full of veggies and proteins would be really good.
