5 ways to prevent your baby from falling ill this winter
5 ways to prevent your baby from falling ill this winter

Winter comes and brings with itself cold and flu viruses- extremely bad news for babies. What makes it worse is that these viruses are contagious, and they spread fast as they are airborne. In such cases pulling your baby away from a sneezing or coughing or sniffling person is not enough. Neither is covering him up in layers of warm clothes. But you can take certain steps to prevent your baby from falling ill.

1. Wash your and your baby’s hands regularly: Washing your and your baby’s hands regularly is the easiest thing you can do to fend off cold and flu germs. It is essential for you to wash your hands after changing diapers, wiping a runny nose and before preparing your baby’s food. As for your baby, washing his before eating or after he comes back from an outing is an absolute must.

2. Vaccinating your baby: You can further prevent your baby from falling ill during the winter season by making sure all his vaccinations are up to date. Getting him an annual flu shot once he becomes 6 months old is necessary, as it protects your child from catching the flu virus.

3. Boost your baby’s immunity the natural way: You can breastfeed your baby regularly to boost his immunity. The American Academy of Paediatrics strongly advises breastfeeding our baby till he is one year old as it is the best way to provide complete nutrition and enhance the immunity of your baby. Breast milk contains minerals, vitamins and proteins that generate antibodies and help in fighting illnesses.

4. Take your baby out in the sun: Even if it’s outside, taking your baby out in the winter sun can do wonders for his immunity. Vitamin D of the sunlight is a very important part of the body’s immune response. Plus, the fresh air and sunlight can help kill all the germs you may have gathered while being cooped up inside. Just be sure to cover your baby well before taking him out.

5. Make sure your baby gets enough sleep: Inadequate sleep can nearly double the chances of your baby falling ill. Harley Robert, professor of paediatrics at the University of Colorado says that lack of sleep is directly related to the health of your immune system. So make sure your baby gets enough sleep, and be sure to put him to bed earlier if he has been around someone who’s sick.
If you follow these measures, then you can greatly reduce the chances of your baby falling ill this winter.

Mothers sometimes feel very sad at not being able to breast feed properly. It can be solved with a little patience. Tell me about his/her wieght, urine, stool, vaccines, any other issues etc.

Eruption of teeth is a normal & does not requre any treatment. But at this time chlidren start exploring all objects by mouth, resulting in recurrent respiratory and gut infections. You may try long pieces of vegetables to cop up itching in teeth.

If baby is active and gaining wt. You need not to worry. Give him breast milk exclusively for 6 months in day time too. Cold is relieved on its own in 4 -5 days. If his nose is blocked, instill 1- 2 drops in nostrils.

As evident by data given above,child seems to be severly malnourished,The child who is not eating sufficient food is likely to be constipated.Start giving semisolid diet at frequent intervals & gradually shifting to solid diet rich in proteins & fats.Expect good results in 3 months.As weight starts picking up all symptoms will fade up.

If his weight is normal for age. Relax. Try giving foods with different tastes. Do not force feed. He will start eating.

My son is 8 years old he is too weak in health but his diet is good but don't know the problem, he is too weak.

This is not adequate information. Many parents equate thin build with weakness .The child will have to get a proper growth and development evaluation and his past history and growth records will have to be scrutinised before we can arrive at any conclusion.

My son is one year old. He is in a stage where his teeth are coming. He is suffering with loose motion for the past 5 days.

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health
Pediatrician, Hyderabad
First you need to understand that loose motions are not due to teething per se., Children used to put hands into mouth because of teething,this causes infection and loose motions. So try avoid that. So don't worry unless he is dehydrated.

You can go for investigations to rule out tuberculosis. Also the lympnodes might be enlarged due to local infection. A course of antibiotics if causes regression of size of lumps then tb is less likely. Also for primary complex (TB) the child must be having features of decreased appetite, weight loss, low grade fever, contact with person having TB or taking drug treatment for tuberculosis.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
"Enlightened Selfishness" says Aristotle, "Is doing good to others. It is not duty, it is joy,for it increases your own health and happiness" Franklin Benjamin said the same thing in simple words " when you are good to others, you are best to yourself"
Why not do a good deed to other (as a parent) each passing day, so our children learn about Enlightened Selfishness. And what is a good deed? A good deed is one that brings smile of joy to the face of another.

Is watching porn and masturbating right for me?(I'm 16 years old. Does it cause any harm to my health or stamina and does it affect my concentration and cause distraction in studies? It wastes lot of my time and I feel a bit guilty after doing it. What should I do? Stop it completely (which is very hard for me) or continue it and do it once in 2-3 days?

Masturbating and watching porn is part of adolescence, but as you mentioned you r feeling distracted and lacking concentration in studies. So need to curtail the time of watching porn.
