If a child is crying it doesn’t always mean that they are hungry a baby may cry because something hurts or just because they want to see their mother sometimes people try to comfort them with food but it might lead to overfeeding that causes discomfort in the stomach, a buildup of gas and spitting up.

Don’t insist if your baby doesn’t want to eat if you think that your baby doesn’t eat enough consult a pediatrician you might be wrong.

Often children don’t eat from the breast well so in order to feed them, mothers pump the milk in general there is nothing dangerous about this but sucking from a bottle is easier than from a breast and it’s easier to get used to over time. Due to this children often stop breastfeeding completely which can lead to an overbite speaking problems and a decrease in the amount of breast milk that is produced.

Recently people believed it was beneficial to wrap babies to keep them warm because “babies are used to the hot temperature inside the mother’s womb.” However overheating is so dangerous and increases the risk of sudden infant death pediatricians recommend maintaining a comfortable temperature between 64 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit don’t cover babies with several blankets and don’t put them next to heaters take their hats off while they sleep.

How can you know if a baby is overheated? Touch their belly it’s supposed to be warm but not hot. Red cheeks and intense sweating are also symptoms of overheating.

The older generation thinks that children should be washed in boiled water the sheets should be ironed from both sides and the room where the baby lives should be cleaned several times a day. A lot of  young parents even get rid of pets worrying about the health of their babies. However pediatricians believe that when everything around is too clean it only hurts the child’s immune system making it hypersensitive.

According to studies conducted at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center children that encounter household germs and the fur of pets during their first year of life are less prone to having allergic reactions or asthma after the age of 1 contact with cats and dogs is not so beneficial anymore.

Unfortunately we can’t always make sure that our children are completely safe but what we can do is follow the generally accepted rules to keep them secure one such rule is entering an elevator with the stroller holding the baby in your arms few people do this but it’s
because machines are not very reliable and the elevator doors can close at any second.

Also parents often cross the road with strollers in the wrong way they push it in front of them but the stroller is lower than the cars and drivers might not see it because of other vehicles driving rules state that strollers should be pushed on the side.

Children often cry so hard that it looks they hate their parents this causes irritated mothers and fathers to start rocking the baby nervously it’s not that they want to hurt the baby it’s their aggravation that makes their movements so rushed.

Remember that children have weak neck muckles and softer brains than adults do so there is a big chance that a child can get injured such injuries are known as shaken baby syndrome it can make a child disabled or even lead to death.
