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.

Can I use Babyrex for immunisation pain?Good evening my baby is going for immunization tomorrow can I use babyrex for him so as to suppress the pains
Because all teething mixture (babyrex, bonababe, piccan etc) all contain paracetamol. And using as prophylaxis for teething is wrong as prolong use or overdose could lead to PCM toxicity (liver damage). Also, we can't tell when these babies will actually teeth. My 7mo baby hasn't grown any tooth, so imagine I have been given her med for it from 3mo. Give only when needed (having fever)

Hello mum and docs, can give my baby of 1yr six months cornflakes and cocopops.tanx.
Your baby cannot digest cereal efficiently: Let’s get this straight— in order to digest a grain like corn our body needs an enzyme named amylase which is responsible for splitting starch. But guess what! Your little one is incapable of producing amylase in large quantities as it takes time for it to come into play. There might be some salivary amylase production during the first 6 months, but pancreatic amylase, which is required for digesting a grain, is not produced until molar teeth appear.
