Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently. It’s not the type of soap that prevents the spread of bacteria and viruses; it’s how you wash your hands. ||When your infant is carried, he should be oriented toward the carrying adult ||Design a kid corner and fill it with things safe for your toddler like Tupperware, toys, empty boxes, etc. ||Make sure the highchair has a wide base, good fit, adjustable secure straps. Consider a post between the child's legs. ||Make a habit out of drinking a glass of water every time you feed your baby. ||Never tie a pacifier to your child’s crib or around your child’s neck or hand. This could cause serious injury or even death ||Excessive warmth and overdressing are as harmful as cold weather. Temperature inside your home should not exceed 23 degrees ||Every milestone is an accomplishment, but it means your child is more independent and needs you a little less ||Alternate the first breast you offer at each feed ||Most newborns need eight to 12 feedings a day — about one feeding every two to three hours ||
