Teething has nothing to do with cough. Continue to breastfeeding your baby. The cough will definitely stop.

Dear mum, do not give your child any of the foods for now. All she needs for now is exclusive breastfeeding. You can express and preserve it well for her to take at the Creche. We at ATP are advocates of exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months after birth and WHO also recommends the same. If that isn't convenient for you, then you can get an age-appropriate formula for her.

Usually, newborns grunt when they learn how to pass stool. However, this grunting can occasionally indicate a health issue, such as trapped mucus, gastroesophageal reflux or irregular breathing. So you should consider seeing a doctor if it persists

It's okay to use fan for your baby. The fan won't have effect on your baby if you don't place baby directly under the fan, directly centred or facing the baby.
My baby is almost 11 weeks and he chews on his tongue and spits alongside. What could be the problem? I'm a 1st-time mom? please h...
Tongue sucking is one of the common oral habits seen among children. It is normal for infants to suck their tongue, thumbs or fingers. It gives them a form of comfort or emotional security but when this habit goes beyond the age of 5 years when the permanent teeth start to erupt, then it can cause dental problems such as the teeth being out of alignment. You do not need to worry or do anything for now. As the baby grows older you will need to encourage him or her to stop by positive reinforcement that is giving rewards on days when the child does not suck. I hope you find this very useful.

Please do not use any drugs or medications. No teething drugs should be administered. Don't do self medication. Just do proper hygiene to prevent child from having diarrhoea or infection. Teething doesn't require drugs. It's a normal physiological Process.

Your baby is probably having fun. In some cases, your baby is trying to scratch her feet or discovering her feet for the first time and most likely is not linked to her fussy behaviour.

Your baby might not be eating enough if he or she doesn't appear satisfied, even after feeding, and cries constantly or is irritable. Call your baby's doctor if you're concerned your baby is not getting enough to eat. A few weeks after birth, breastfed babies tend to have fewer bowel movements than they did before.

Remove the Sticky Stuff. Sometimes mucus hardens into a crusty or sticky mess around your baby's nose. You can also Vaporize by Placing a cool-mist vaporizer or humidifier in your baby's room to add moisture to the air. Give Love Pats. Gentle taps on your baby's back can help ease chest congestion.

Many doctors advise all women to wait 18 to 24 months after they've given birth before trying to conceive again, but this is especially true for those who've delivered by c-section. This time-out gives your body a chance to heal and recover from surgery

Most babies will move into delivery position a few weeks prior to birth, with the head moving closer to the birth canal. When this fails to happen, the baby's buttocks and/or feet will be positioned to be delivered first if the doctors or midwives can achieve this naturally. This is referred to as “breech presentation.”

At 37 weeks, Contractions may feel like a tightening or cramping in your uterus, similar to menstrual cramps. Some women feel them in their back, as well. ... Some women confuse contractions with Braxton-Hicks contractions, which are sometimes referred to as “false labor.”

You have to make sure it's prescribed by your caregiver. Fansidar is usually prescribed twice in one pregnant, the first dose as soon as you feel your baby's movement (btw 16-22weeks) then the second dose a month after. You can take it in your second trimester but not safe in the third trimester after 34 weeks cause of d risk of ur baby having jaundice. If u have malaria symptoms, see your care provider. They know d best drug of choice to prescribe depending on ur weeks of gestation. Besides, Fansidar is only meant for preventing malaria not for treating it. All the best!
