While 9 months is the average age that babies start to crawl, it's neither unusual nor abnormal for babies to put off crawling until 11 or 12 months or in some cases, not crawl at all. One main factor seems to influence when babies crawl: Bigger babies tend to sit up, crawl, and walk later than leaner babies

Please do not self-medication. Most cold and catarrh are viral infections that will be left to run its course."For catarrh, Keep your baby warm. Adequate hygiene around a baby is expedient. If nostrils are congested, u can buy saline drops to help relieve congestion or do steam inhalation (both of you will have to do it) If no improvement, kindly consult with a paediatrician for further assistance.

Pacifier use during naps or nighttime can prevent sudden infant death syndrome. Doctors aren't sure how it works, but if you give your baby a pacifier while she's asleep, you might lower her risk of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) by more than half. Satisfy the suck reflex. Babies have a natural need to suck. If you're nursing your baby, wait until he's a month old to give him a pacifier, to make sure breastfeeding is well established. Some studies show that a pacifier at sleep times seems to have a protective effect against SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome).

Can I give my baby custard? She is 9 months
Dr. Dara Abiodun

Medical Doctor

Not Recommended because Custard is a very rich food, and is high in fat. Your baby doesn't need to eat a lot of fatty foods at such a young age, and you are not doing them any favours by introducing this at this time. You want to wait until your baby is more active, crawling around or after they've learned to walk.
