My son just started stuttering since last week. How do I correct it. He is 2years and 5months old

2. Imitation: is there an adult or child they like so much who stutters? Parent should try and observe d child in order to address the reason for the stuttering.

What to do

3. Notice times d child didn't stutter and reinforce the child 4 d clear sentence or statement

My baby has this transparent boils that burst with water and comes out from another spot around his neck.
The commonest cause/source of all these boils for babies is from HANDS OF ADULTS that carry babies. Especially in Nigeria, we do not wash our hands routinely and yet everyone will just carry babies with their unwashed hands full of staph!!! The bacteria in your hands will not hurt you but for a baby whose immunity is just maturing, it can cause all these soft tissue and skin infection. I used to tell my mums when going home, only mum and one other assistant who washes her hands frequently should be allowed to carry and touch babies!!! Every other person coming to visit should be requested to wash their hands or use hand sanitizer BEFORE touching babies before they transfer germs to the new baby. Since that may not be culturally correct, better to keep baby in cot zipped so they can just see than for every one carrying baby and introducing germs
Please is vaginal discharge normal in babies?
Vaginal discharge is a normal phenomenon in babies. It is due to the effect of the maternal hormones still circulating in the body of the baby.
