FROM OUR CONTINUOUS CONTACT WITH EXPERTS IN CHILD CARE, WE SHARE THE BEST IDEAS FOR YOUR LITTLE ONE TO GROW HEALTHY
Being a new mother is not easy, especially when so much information – often contradictory – circulates everywhere about the care a baby requires. Calm: you don’t need to run from one counselor to another to maintain the good health and well-being of your child; By following these simple tips you will have before you the healthiest and happiest child in the world.
13. GIVE THEM FRESH OR COOKED FOOD
Prefer fresh or steamed vegetable porridge; they better retain their nutritional value (especially minerals) because they are susceptible to boiling.
14. ENCOURAGE IT TO MOVE
Crawling, crawling, and walking motivate your baby to stay active. Even from such a young age, exercise is vital for better respiratory function and the optimal development of your bones and muscles.
15. TAKE IT TO YOUR HEALTH REVIEWS
Vision, hearing and developmental problems, in general, can be difficult to detect without the intervention of a health professional, so do not hesitate to take your child for consultation every month during his first year of life, every three months during the second year and every six months after their third birthday.
16. A MASSAGE
A good massage will represent multiple benefits for your child: it will improve his sleep, help his digestion, relieve annoying colic, increase his muscle tone and, last but not least, make him feel close to you, the most beloved and pampered child!
17. GIVE IT MANY VEGETABLES
The golden rule is that every day you vary the color of the vegetables you include in your diet so that you have access to the full range of vitamins and minerals present in this food group. Don’t forget Brussels sprouts and broccoli, which will provide you with the necessary calcium for growth.
18. SPEND IT OUTDOORS
It is an excellent idea to spend a pleasant time together. Pulling it out will also train your resistance to colds and stimulate their learning of the environment in general.
19. DO NOT PUT SALT TO HIS FOOD
Eliminating the use of salt in the food you give your baby will avoid overloading the function of his kidneys and will favor good eating habits. It prevents excess salt from seeping into your body through processed foods such as bacon and sausage: in general, avoid cold cuts.

21. GIVE ALL YOUR VACCINES
Keep up to date on immunizations. Vaccines are the most effective – and cheapest – we have so far to prevent infectious diseases … at least in their most severe forms.
22. PROTECT YOUR EARS
Reduce the risk of infections in your baby’s ears by trying to keep them as moist as possible. Dry them very well after the daily bath.
23. WHO DOES NOT SLEEP WITH THE BOTTLE
Drinking milk while sleepy and lying down can cause your child to choke; Remember, also, that during sleep there is less salivation, which in a certain way leaves your teeth unprotected against the action of bacteria that cause annoying cavities.
24. CHOOSE YOUR FOOD WITH CARE
Avoid giving foods that contain artificial colors, especially red and yellow, as they are associated with behavioral problems – hyperactivity – and allergic skin reactions.
25. LAUGH WITH HIM!
Did you know that laughter stimulates the immune system? Laughing reduces the negative effects of physical and mental stress while promoting the production of endorphins – hormones that naturally fight pain. Now you know: take time to teach your child to have a good laugh every day.
