With approaching winter the infants are most vulnerable section of the society that can develop complications related to extreme cold weather. Here are some tips for new mothers to keep the baby cozy and free of problems :
1. Protecting from Cold :Winter means cold temperature. Babies especially newborn have larger exposed surface area and immature mechanism to generate heat in their body. Hence, they need to be protected with an extra layer of cloth . This should be preferably be a woollen or thick cotton. The more layers will protect against cold conditions. Also , their peripheries need to be covered with mittens/gloves and socks to keep them warm. Caps are a must especially when they get exposed to cold breeze as head is a significant part of their body . Swaddling and maintaining a room temperature of 24-28 o C is also a recommended way to keep babies warm.
2. Maintaining safe sleeping: While sleeping the babies are at a risk of choking at times and hence they should not be overcovered with layers of heavy and bulky blankets. Also the crib in which the baby is placed should not be overstuffed . This causes poor air circulation , makes baby uncomfortable and may cause suffocation in the baby also. Babies should always sleep on their back and never on their tummy.
3.Skin Protection: With winter there is onset of many dry and irritant skin conditions. To protect the newly born from these problems one should moisturise the baby’s skin well after bath. Bathing daily can denude the natural oils of the skin and hence should be avoided. TO avoid allergy to the skin, hypoallergenic products only should be applied on the neonates skin and best oils to be used for massage is coconut or olive oil. The mustard oil and practices like LOI with flour can cause sever irritation on the tiny babies skin.
4. Protection from common infections and cold:With winter many adults too catch cold and cough and they can pass their infections to the neonate. TO protect them use hand sanitizer, use more breast feeding, wash hands frequently before touching the babies and do not allow for kissing and touching the face of the baby with unclean hands. Mothers who have common cold or fever can continue to breastfeed their babies using handkerchief or mask to prevent the babies from catching their infection.
5. Tackling common problems of winter : Common problems like nose block still happens due to winter and hence it is best to use saline drops and good quality nasal aspirators to keep the nose less stuffy. Also use oil heaters which do not let the humidity decrease while giving heat and hence do not aggravate the problem of stuffy nose. Some new items like vaporises and humidifiers can also be used to maintain humidity in the room in which baby is spending most of their time.
6 .Red flag signs in winter: If during winter the baby has any signs like irritability, poor feeding, excessive cry, pulling ears, cough, breathing difficulty, icy cold body , bluish lips or tongue or fever more than 100 degree F then consult your paediatrician immediately as this indicates serious infections too. Do not use home remedies for such small infants.
If you’re a woman trying to have a baby, you probably know that there are many parts of your body that have to work just right. Your ovaries need to produce an egg every month, called ovulation, your uterus has to be in good shape, and your fallopian tubes have to be open. If anyone of these important parts isn’t functioning correctly, you might have trouble getting pregnant.
If your fallopian tubes are blocked, sperm won’t be able to reach your egg or the fertilized egg won’t be able to get into your uterus. Blocked tubes can happen for several different reasons, but no matter the cause, your doctor will diagnose it with a test called a hysterosalpingogram.
Hysterosalpingogram (hsg) - A hysterosalpingogram or hsg is an x-ray procedure performed to determine whether the fallopian tubes are open and to see if the shape of the uterine cavity is normal. An hsg is an outpatient procedure that takes less than one half-hour to perform. It is usually done after menses have ended, but before ovulation, to prevent interference with an early pregnancy.
Hysterosalpingography can help diagnose the following causes of infertility.
- Structural abnormalities in the uterus, which may be congenital (genetic) or acquired
- Blockage of the fallopian tubes
- Scar tissue in the uterus
- Uterine fibroids
- Uterine tumors or polyps
How is a hysterosalpingogram done?
A patient is positioned under a fluoroscope (a real-time x-ray imager) on a table. The gynecologist or radiologist then examines her uterus and places a speculum in her vagina. Her cervix is cleaned, and a device (cannula) is placed into the opening of the cervix. The physician then gently fills the uterus with a liquid containing iodine (contrast) through the cannula. The contrast then enters the tubes, outlines the length of the tubes, and spills out their ends if they are open. Any abnormalities in the uterine cavity or fallopian tubes will be
Visible on a monitor. The hsg is not designed to evaluate the ovaries or diagnose endometriosis. Frequently, side views of the uterus and tubes are obtained by having the patient change her position on the table. After the hsg, a patient can immediately resume normal activities, although some physicians ask that the woman refrains from intercourse for a few days.
Risks and side effects-
- Mild pain during or after the procedure.
- Light bleeding for two to three days following the procedure.
- Feeling of light-headedness or faintness during or after the procedure.
- Exposure to a small amount of radiation
A radiologist will look at the x-ray images and send a report to your doctor. Your doctor will talk about the results with you and explain if more tests are needed. It may show a complete normal report suggesting bilateral tubal patency and a good uterine cavity. In case, if a pathology is suspected like blocked single tube/ both tubes, an irregular filling defect in the uterine cavity necessary management can be advised accordingly. It's relatively a safe and cheap alternative to laparoscopy surgery. However, a hystero-laparoscopy is the gold standard for evaluation of the entire female genital tract as it is not only diagnostic but also corrective in case if pathology is diagnosed in the same sitting.
If the report shows that your fallopian tubes are blocked, you might need a procedure called a laparoscopy. It lets your doctor look directly at the fallopian tubes. She may also recommend in vitro fertilization (IVF. Your doctor will talk to you about your options and help you make the decision that is best for you.
Understand the history and implications of the crip walk. The crip walk is a controversial dance move which originated in the 1970s in South Central Los Angeles, among members of the Crip gang.
Originally, the foot movement used in crip walking was meant to spell out the letters "C-R-I-P" and was used to display gang affiliation at parties and other gatherings.
- Later, the dance was used as a signature by Crip gang members after they had committed a crime, as the foot movement would leave distinctive shuffle marks on the ground.
- As a result of these associations, crip walking was banned from a large number of schools in certain L.A. neighborhoods, while MTV refused to play any rap or hip-hop videos (such as those by Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, and Kurupt) containing the crip walk.
- More recently, the crip walk has been appropriated by American culture and, in general, is no longer intended to display gang affiliation.
- However, it is important to be aware of the history and implications of the crip walk, as performing it could still potentially cause offense in certain situations.
Learn the shuffle. The shuffle is the most basic part of the c-walk. To shuffle, stand with your right foot planted firmly on the ground and your left leg extended out in front of you, balanced on the ball of your left foot.
- Now, reverse this position by standing firmly on your left foot while your right leg is extended in front of you, balanced on the ball of your right foot. Jump as you switch your feet, so the switch is completed in one fluid movement.
- Now keep jumping and switching your feet -- this is the basic shuffle movement. You can make it more interesting by moving sideways or around in a circle as you jump, or by keeping the same foot forward in a double jump.
- Variation: A common variation on the shuffle step is the shuffle kick. To do the shuffle kick, balance your front foot on the heel rather than the toe and give it a flick to the side.
- Alternating between the basic shuffle step and the shuffle kick will add more flavor to your crip-walk.
Learn the heel-toe. The heel to toe is perhaps the hardest part of the crip walk and will require some practice.
- Type one: Turn so that your body is facing diagonally towards the right, then put your left foot forward, balancing on the heel. Swivel on your left heel and the ball of your right foot until your body is facing diagonally towards the left.
- Now jump and switch feet so your right foot is in front, balanced on the heel, and your left foot is behind. Keep practicing this movement until you get it fast and smooth.
- You can add some variation to the movement by doing a double heel-toe -- do the heel-toe as normal but instead of switching feet try to swivel in the same direction twice, keeping the same foot in front.
- Type two: The second type of heel-toe is pretty much the same as the first, except for one major difference. Instead of balancing on the ball of your back foot, try to balance on your toe. Then instead of swiveling on your toe, drag it across the ground as you change directions.
- Type three: The third type of heel-toe involves the same movement as the first, except that you keep repeating the heel-toe with the same foot in front while moving in one direction. So, starting with your body facing diagonally towards the right and your left heel in front, swivel so that your body is facing diagonally towards the left. Now instead of switching feet, jump back to the starting position (facing the right, left heel in front) and repeat the movement again.
Put it all together. A good crip walk will involve a combination of the movements described above, with as many variations and as much personal style thrown in as possible.
- Just try to get the movements as smooth and fluid as possible -- crip walking is supposed to look effortless and loose, not tight and exact.
- Practice as you listen to your favorite hip-hop or rap tunes and try to dance in time with the beat.
- What you do with your arms is up to you -- some people leave them loose at their sides, while others put their hands on their hips.
- Remember that everyone's c-walk is unique, so just do what feels good for you.
