BABY TEETH CARE BASICS:---Few things are as adorable as a baby's totally toothless smile. But baby teeth development doesn't take long. Before you know it, you'll be navigating your way through the world of teething, brushing baby teeth, losing baby teeth and eventually welcoming in a mouth full of permanent pearly whites. Baby teeth development actually begins before baby is born. Primary teeth are almost completely formed at birth but remain buried under the gums. These mini chompers start showing up when a baby is about six months to a year old.Unfortunately, baby tooth development and eruption is a painful process. Teething can make an infant's gums sore, causing your little one to be uncomfortable and irritable. Experts suggest that during baby tooth development, you massage your baby's gums with a clean finger or give a chilled teething ring, a cool spoon or a cold, wet washcloth to help ease the discomfort.Parents should begin brushing baby teeth as soon as the first tooth arrives. Why bother? These little munchers help baby with proper chewing and speech and hold space in the gums for permanent teeth. It's never too early to start taking good care of your baby's teeth. Here are some baby teeth care basics:----- Prevent early childhood caries, also known as baby bottle tooth decay, by making sure baby doesn't sleep with a bottle containing any sugary liquids -- even breast milk. And never give your child a pacifier that's been dipped into anything sweet.- Start brushing baby teeth as soon as the first tooth appears. Routine baby dental care should also include massaging the gums with a clean gauze pad. When all teeth have erupted, floss at least once a day to help prevent the buildup of dental plaque.- Wean your baby off thumb-sucking if he or she is still doing so by age four. Otherwise, it can cause overcrowded or crooked teeth.- Consider a combination of fluoride treatment and dental sealants, thin plastic coatings applied on baby molars to keep dental plaque from accumulating. Talk to your dentist before giving your child any fluoride dental treatment and have your child use only un-fluoridated toothpaste until two years of age.- Take your child to the dentist after the first tooth arrives or by age one. Regular dental visits combined with daily baby teeth care can help give your baby a good head start on the road to dental health.A great dentist or pediatric dentist can answer any questions you might have about baby teeth development and help provide tips for proper baby teeth care.Call/Text/What's up us @ 8285666226 fir any help.

In some children skin colour fades as they grow older because of excessive exposure to sunlight. Use a suncreen with spf of at least 15. Give vitamin a rich foods like carrot, papaya, green leafy vegetables etc.

The cause is hunk food as you said. Similarity if he is bottle fed stop bottle and feed with a cup or glass and spoon.

I am 26 years old, and I had a 3rd month baby bt breast milk is not sufficient. So I am using 120 ml of lactogen daily. Due to bottle feeding my baby is suffering from cough, doctor asked me to stop bottle feeding, he suggested me to use spoon instead of bottles. My baby is unable to drink with spoon. I used lactare tablets for 1 month bt no use. please can you suggest me how to improve my breast milk.

Baby's face change constantly. Till they are about 18 years age they have constantly changing facial characters. However she may look care for her hair akin, overall health. She will grow up attractive and healthy with self confidence. If you appear unhappy about her looks or critique it in front of her it will harm her self worth. Now she us only 1 month old don't stress about that enjoy the cuddles. I am sure she will look and be good in all ways when she grows up.

YOUR NEWBORN WEEK BY WEEK Newborn Finally, your big moment came…and your little baby came out! Here's a glimpse at your newborn's first week of life. 1 Week Old Baby How can such a little thing make such a big noise? Aside from crying, here's what your newborn is up to in his second week of life. 2 Week Old Baby She may be tiny, but your little bundle of joy sure can eat a lot. Feed me, Mommy! 3 Week Old Baby Your baby's not trying to torture you with all that crying -- he's just trying to tell you something. 4 Week Old Baby Are you talking to me? Yes, she is — and your babbling baby wants you to talk back! 5 Week Old Baby Break out the camera (as if you haven't already!) and capture those first real smiles for posterity — or at least to show to Grandma. 6 Week Old Baby Look what my fingers can do! That might be what your baby is cooing to herself as she test-drives those powerful tools attached to her hands. 7 Week Old Baby Smiles and sounds abound as your baby soaks up stimuli and lets you know he loves the world around him. YOUR BABY MONTH BY MONTH 1 Month Old Baby From newborn reflexes and sleep to things to do with baby, what you need to prepare for the first month. 2 Month Old Baby You might be pretty (ok, very) tired these days but one look at that little gummy grin makes it all worthwhile. 3 Month Old Baby So much has happened in so little time! Your baby has gotten a whole lot bigger and his brain power is increasing every day, too! 4 Month Old Baby Plenty of parents consider the next few months to be the golden age of babyhood, and for good reason. 5 Month Old Baby Peek-a-boo, I see you! Get ready to play this classic and other hide-and-seek games as your baby starts to catch on to the fun. 6 Month Old Baby Your baby is halfway to a year already! Watch for skills (and the desire to use them) to grow by leaps and bounds now. 7 Month Old Baby I like that song, mommy! Sing it again…and again…and again… 8 Month Old Baby At this age, those little critters are itching to bust a move so set'em down and watch'em go! 9 Month Old Baby If it seems like some of your baby's adorable sounds are starting to sound like actual words, they are! 10 Month Old Baby With so much ground to cover, your energizer bunny is probably more interested in exploring than eating these days. 11 Month Old Baby If there's trouble to be found, chances are your little one is on the hunt!

Weaning age is 5 to 6 months but not later than 6 months. Continue breast feed up to 2 years. Weaning starts with thin semi solids like suji kheer Dal khichadi etc once in a day to satisfaction of baby.

There is no evidence of cancer causing substances in baby products. My sincere advise is apply olive oil (massage oil) wait for half an hour and do routine bath. Other than this nothing is required for baby.

this is something like depersonalisation. Usually if it occurs just once in a while its okay. But if this feeling is pervasive and has been present for a long time along with some other symptoms, its better you consult a psychiatrist with all possible complaints and details. You could consult me online too

Breat feeding encouraged upto one year. After this we recommend table diet to babies. To promote breast milk secretion first think is you need to cosume high protein low fat nutritious food in plenty. Commercially available items are not must to promote secretions. More oten it is just for some psychological satisfaction tomothers. Tin. Versicl. Is not related to the products you use.

Lets hope there are no problems in future. For now, I hope you are pumping breastmilk for feeding your baby to be fed in the ICU. That would be the best food and best medicine your baby can get to develop a strong immunity for future.

Hello- The weight loss is due to nutritional deficiency in your body as a result of prolonged breast feeding (More thn 12 months). Its not healthy for you and your baby as well. So stop that immediately.
