Remember that it’s essential to consult with your paediatrician for personalized advice and guidance regarding your child’s health and well-being. They can provide specific recommendations tailored to your child’s needs and development.
The recommended vaccination schedule varies, but it typically includes vaccinations at 2, 4, 6, 12, and 18 months, with booster shots in later childhood. These vaccinations are essential for protecting your child from serious diseases.
Colic is often a self-limiting condition, but you can try techniques like swaddling, gentle rocking, or using white noise to comfort your baby. Consult with your pediatrician for guidance and to rule out other issues.
Common signs of food allergies in children include hives, difficulty breathing, wheezing, vomiting, diarrhea, and swelling of the face or lips. If you suspect a food allergy, consult your pediatrician for evaluation and testing.
Most babies are ready for solid foods around 6 months of age. The first foods should be single-grain baby cereals or pureed vegetables or fruits. Consult with your pediatrician for specific recommendations based on your child's development.
Offer a variety of nutritious foods, set a positive example by eating healthy yourself, and create a structured mealtime routine. Avoid using food as a reward or punishment.
It's common for infants and young children to wake during the night. Establishing a consistent bedtime routine and addressing any sleep issues with your pediatrician can help improve sleep patterns.
Most children are ready for potty training between 18 and 24 months, but readiness varies. Look for signs of interest in using the potty and follow your child's lead. Be patient and offer positive reinforcement.
Developmental milestones vary, but they generally include rolling over, sitting, crawling, walking, and speaking their first words. Consult your pediatrician to track your child's progress and ensure they are meeting these milestones.
To prevent injuries, childproof your home by securing cabinets, using safety gates, removing small objects that can be swallowed, and ensuring a safe sleep environment. Always supervise your child during playtime.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends limiting screen time for children aged 2 to 5 to one hour of high-quality programming per day and encouraging co-viewing for educational content. For children under 18 months, screen time should be avoided except for video chatting.
