Here are some common things babies do that effect their health and things parents need to be aware of when caring for their newborn infant.
Sleeping face up does not lead to choking on saliva. Babies who frequently spit up (see our article on gastroesophageal reflux ) should sleep with their heads higher than their feet, but they usually are still safer on their backs. Sleeping on the stomach and sleeping on soft mattresses may increase your baby’s risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
Acid reflux, which is also known as gastroesophageal reflux (GERD), is one of the most common problems among infants. Babies with suffering from acid reflux often present a range of conditions. Acid reflux, also called GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), in simple, mechanical terms is a correctable impairment in the digestive system. In a healthy individual, the lower esophageal sphincter (a term which stands for a ring of muscle that acts as a valve between the esophagus and the stomach) prevents gastric acids from flowing back into the esophagus.
SIDS is the leading cause of death among infants who are one month to one year old. Despite years of research and studies, SIDS is still unpredictable and largely unpreventable. SIDS is a classification that is used to describe a deceased infant. It is not a disease, nor can it be a diagnosis for a living baby.
Fire retardants are supposed to protect your baby in case of a fire, but they can also be very lethal. Fireplace accidents occur too frequently to be overlooked by safety-conscious parents. Don’t let your child become the next statistic.
Safety gates can help keep children away from stairs or rooms that have hazards in them. Look for safety gates that children cannot dislodge easily, but that adults can open and close without difficulty. Safe travel items for infants are the necessary things to be carried.
Gate closes nicely and tightly with a nice click reminiscent of the way a well designed car door shut. Gate swings open either way, No Would definitely buy again – we have two of them and are very pleased. Gates at the top of stairs should be the style that are attached to the wall. Chests of drawers should also be attached to the wall.
Car seat safety check. Is it properly installed?
Parents and Caregivers should also be aware that furniture with movable parts, such as reclining chairs or daybeds can be hazardous if a child becomes stuck in moving pieces. All dangling ropes and cords, especially window blind cords, need to be shortened and/or tucked out of reach so babies cannot strangle themselves or pull heavy objects down upon themselves. Caregivers should run their hands over a crib and make sure there are no splinters, tiny pinching crevices, or sharp points. If a crib is a hand-me-down, make sure that lead paint was not used in one of the earlier layers of paint; lead paint was outlawed in baby furniture in 1974.
Baby safety products include baby safety table covers, baby safety gates and other baby safety products. Nothing is more important than baby safety. Baby safety products are needed from the ground up, so watch for issues with window blinds and table lamp cords as well.
Baby monitors are either powered by batteries or by alternating current from wall outlets. If you want to be able to use your monitor in places without easy access to outlets, or to be able to carry it around with you, you probably want one that uses batteries. Baby monitors are well known. A standard baby monitor consists of a transmitter and a receiver, each of which can be powered by a battery or an A/C current source (usually with an inline transformer).
