Is it advisable to use a hand fan on a 15 weeks old baby?
  • Best Answer
You can hand fan, use electric fan or even air conditioner for the child. There is nothing wrong with using the Fan or AC as long as the fan is not blowing directly on the baby. Meanwhile, try and keep the baby warm and continue exclusive breastfeeding....No need for twice or thrice daily baths....dress baby comfortably according to the weather....Open the windows and let the room be well-aerated. There is no need to over cover the baby and keep in a stuffy room in hot season like we are having right now

Can I give my baby Bournvita his a year old
  • Best Answer
For bournvita, you can start at one year old. But it is advisable to start from 2 years. These health drinks are not safe to be given to kids before 2 years of age, as your little one’s kidneys are not ready to take the heavy load of these foods. As babies surpass the weaning stage, their digestive system starts to accept new foods. In 2 years your breastmilk helps them grow a strong enough digestive system to take on these complex foods. As baby graduates from infant to toddler, she needs the right nutrients to grow. As per the nutritional recommendations of WHO for children, for healthy growth a baby needs a variety of proteins and micronutrients including Iron, Zinc, Calcium, Riboflavin(Vit. B2), Vitamin B12 etc. Milk along with Bournvita, Complan or Horlicks can act as a great source of these while also making milk flavourful.
