The right room temperature for a baby

This is often a new parent’s question, what is the right temperature for a baby? Well, small babies are not very good in controlling their temperature and I was told by my health visitor that it is important to prevent little the little ones from getting too hot as it is from getting too cold. So here is what you should do:

• Check if the room temperature is warm enough for you to be comfortable wearing light clothing (16-20c), then it is the right temperature for your baby.
• Give your baby one light layer of clothing more than what you are wearing, but if the room is too hot for you keep your babies clothes light.
• If your baby sleeps with you on your bed, always check your baby as he or she may get too hot on your duvet.
• Always keep your baby’s head uncovered indoors, unless if it’s very cold, as my health visitor said a baby needs to lose heath from his or her head and face.
• Never use a hot water bottle or an electric blanket, as babies delicate skin could burn up easily or scald.
• An ill or feverish baby doesn’t need any extra bedding. In fact they usually need less, as per advice by health professionals.
• And always remove hats and extra clothing as soon as you come indoors or enter a warm car, train, and busses.

No-Scalpel Vasectomies

If you are planning to have a vasectomy as your permanent contraception, then I think you should know this no-scalpel vasectomy procedure called Pro-Vas Occlusion. This no-scalpel vasectomy is said to be the most advance technique of contraception for men which are now being use to block the sperm passage and a procedure that does not require cutting or scalping any part of men’s anatomy. As a result, this will reduced the risk of infection, complications and have less damage to the tissue. Based on research, results shown that most men who have undergone with no-scalpel vasectomies tend to recover quickly and felt lesser pain than the old scalpel method vasectomy. So why suffer?

Ideas on how to make your baby or child fit

It is also important to keep your child or baby fit, in that way they would be able to sleep better and they are more cheerful and easy going when they have the opportunity to run off some energy. At the same time you will also be helping their muscle development and general fitness. Here are some exercise tips I want to share with you for your baby or child.

• Allow your baby to lie and kick his or her legs.
• Make your floor a safe place for a crawler to move around.
• Make time for your toddler to walk with you rather than using a push chair or a buggy.
• Take toddlers and young children to the park to try climbing and swinging or just that they have a safe space to run.
• Find out what’s on for parents and babies at the local leisure centre.
• Take your baby swimming. They can start at a very young age and there is no need to wait until your child has had her immunization.
