How to Train your Baby to Brush Teeth

It is very important for parents to take care of their kid's teeth, as, teeth are not only important for health but also for their cute and beautiful smile. Now the question is when to start cleansing the teeth and why it is important to take care for baby teeth or milk teeth that do not last even for a decade and baby would have new permanent teeth at age of 6 or 7 years?

The answer is very simple. The most common disease among  kids is tooth decay. Therefore we can do good for our kids to fight against the cavities, by training them properly for the maintenance of their teeth.
A toddler have twenty primary teeth that are for few years. But milk teeth are as important as adult or permanent teeth, because, milk teeth are basically guide for adult teeth. If a child lost his baby teeth due to decay than he would not have enough space for adult teeth to be appear. other than this the child will suffer from infection and pain and other problems related to teeth. Therefore it is very important to take care for the baby teeth.

When a baby to start brushing teeth: 

The parents should clean the gums of their infants before appearing the teeth. You should clean their gums with soft cloth, gauze or infant sized toothbrush after every feeding. When your baby have first teeth at the age of 6 or 7 months you should have a visit to a dentist. And set up a proper routine of brushing teeth twice a day; after breakfast and before sleep. The tooth brush should be soft and small headed. Brush your baby's teeth with water, don't use tooth paste until your child learn spitting.
When a child become 2 or 3 years old he should brush his teeth by himself.You can trained him for self brushing by many ways. When you yourself brush your teeth, give brush in his hand and do brush  together.
Or set a proper time for his brushing and make him follow the routine and properly guide him how to brush his teeth. 
In short the tooth brush training is necessary for the toddlers for their hygiene and beautiful smile.

Note: If you have some tips for training a baby to brush his teeth please share in comments.

Bolt

Bolt is an interesting movie for kids. My son love to watch this movie.  By watching this movie kids can easily distinguish between reality and fiction.  Because many of the kids, because if their innocence, consider many things as real that they watch in movies.  By watching bolt it is easy for them to differentiate between fiction and nonfiction.  I remember my nephew was addicted of ben10, he demanded ben10 watch .  So his father  brought a toy ben10 watch for him.  When he wear it and wanted to become hero as ben10 and he could not,  then there was a great Ambrassment for his parents.  It was hard for them to make him understand that this all is not real.

So this type of movies can help the parents as well as kids to consider movies and animations only entertainment,  not reality.
So enjoy bolt with your kids.

Toy Story

Toy story is a very interesting animated movie. My little son enjoys it very much. I also enjoyed it with my son and concluded the movies like "Toy Story" are great help for the parents who have little kids. All of us know that the toys are weakness of kids. Some kids are very sensitive and caring for their toys, but, some kids have the bad habit of destroying their toys. This habit becomes a headache for parents.
There is a great lessons for kids about toys. As they show that toys also have feelings and attachment for the kid to whom they belong. They also get hurt if they are treated in bad way. They also feel pain and become sad. Toys like those kids who keep them with care and love.
It is a psychological effect that the watcher of movie consider himself as hero and want to follow him if they have a chance. Therefore all kids who watch "Toy Story", want to be like Andy. I will suggest all parents to show "Toy Story" to their kids. I am sure they will observe a great change in their kids about their toys. They will keep their toys with more care.

Chocolate and Kids

Chocolate is liked by almost everyone. It seems as everyone is  big fan of chocolate. Mostly young kids are so happy when they get a tasty chocolate bar, particularly, when they are munching for chocolate. Even adults also sometimes addict of chocolate.  But, excessive use of chocolate for kids is harmful as it can damage the teeth, because it causes tooth decay. Anyhow it is very difficult for anyone to stop oneself  from chocolate if it is in approach.

I think chocolate has good effects on mood when someone is suffering from boredom. Imagine if your kid is fan of chocolate like you, and he want to eat some thing and you take him a creamy and tasty chocolate bar he will be happy and can be stay in good mood for a long period.
Sometime it happens that your child is angry with you and have not eaten anything for a long time, then present him with a tasty chocolate bar. It will not only have pleasant affects on his anger but also will restore his energy by keeping his sugar level normal.
Other than this chocolate is best for refreshment when you go for jogging or walk in morning or evening, you feel yourself tired then a small chocolate bar will make refresh. In short the crunchy chocolate is the  need of every chocolate fan for entertainment and refreshment. But, keep in your mind the effects of chocolate on the teeth. So enjoy chocolate but with care.
Other than this kids also love chocolate flavor in other sweet dishes and deserts. My own son love chocolate and everything in chocolate flavor, particularly, chocolate biscuits and cakes and creamy chocolate bar is his favorite. But , as a mother I never allow him excessive use of chocolates or other sweets.

Iron Deficiency in Kids

Iron is an important constituent of hemoglobin, myoglobin and the enzymes which contains iron.The iron deficiency in kids up to one year of age is very dangerous. Iron deficiency at this age can impair the development of brain. Therefore treatment of the iron deficiency at this age is of extreme importance. Other than this the mother should also be aware of importance of iron and calcium during the pregnancy and should take external dosage of these elements if the food is not fulfilling the need of  foetus. Because, if a mother gives birth to a baby with the deficiency of iron, then it would be very difficult to overcome the affects of iron deficiency.  

Affects of iron deficiency in kids.

 In general, iron deficiency can cause 
  • chronic fatigue,
  • lack of concentration,
  • irritability,
  • nervousness, 
  • headache,
  • loss of appetite,
  • susceptibility to stress and infection, 
  • paleness, cracks at the corners of mouth (rhagades), 
  • dry skin, 
  • brittle hair and nails 
  • as well as loss of interest in play in children of all ages. 
Iron deficiency effects the production and size of red blood cells (RBCs). therefore, decreased amount of hemoglobin and RBCs in blood stream is called Anemia. The RBCs carry oxygen throughout the body. So the lack of RBCs resulted in lack of oxygen in the cells and tissues. There fore, it needs proper treatment and therapy for the restoration of red blood cells.

The amount of iron that kids need:

Although mostly babies are born with the iron stored in their bodies, but, they need a sufficient amount of iron for their growth and development. Here is a general guideline for the kids "approximate iron need/day":

  • 7-12 months need- 11 milligrams
  • 1-3 years need------ 7 milligrams
  • 4-8 years need----- 10 milligrams
  • 9-13 years need----- 8 milligrams
  • 14-18 years boys--- 11 milligrams 
  • 14-18 years girls---- 15 milligrams

Each type of cap is fancy and useful according to demand. Now, here you would see different type of caps, their uses, and other aspects.

Warm/ Woolen Caps:


It is stretchable 
there are hundred types of warm caps are available in the market. Theses caps are used to protect someone from cold season. Usually, in winter these cap are used. And small kids need more care against extreme cold. Usually warm caps are made up of woolen yarn. Some mothers prefer to prepare at home and some prefer to purchase a nice and beautiful piece for their kids. When you re going to buy a woolen cap for your kid, you should be aware about approximate size of you kid's head. Either, woolen caps are stretchable to some extent, so there would not be much problem in case, if you buy a smaller cap in size. But if you get a larger one than there would be a problem for your kid and for you too, because, it would not only cover your kid's eyes, but also it would keep much warm your kid's head. And, sometime it would may fell down from his head. And if you knitting at home, then, you need to choose an excellent yarn that should be soft and smooth, and design of the cap also must be simple and soft that may not irritate your kid. Particularly in case of infants

Hat:  



Hat is an oldest type of cap. It makes a child's look more decent and charming. Particularly, in West it is liked more to wear. There are many kinds of hat and hats are available in different fabrics and materials in the market. I will suggest the parents, when they go to buy  a hat for their kid, they should must to know about the size of their kid. Otherwise it may cause a great problem. The hat size chart will help the parent to learn about their kid's size. Other than this, you also should keep in view the material of the hat, because hard material will irritate the child. In some cases, there is a red rash appears at the back of the kid's ear. So, to avoid from that type of condition you need to be careful in purchase.

P Cap/ Cloth Cap:

P cap and other cloth cap are usually used to save the kid from sun. Because that type of caps have a shad that keeps the kid's eyes save from direct sun P caps also used in sports field. Another important thing about P caps, that is useful for parents, is, P caps are adjustable. Because at the back these caps have adjustment strip. Other cloth caps usually used by girls for fashion and styles. Some of them need a specific size and some are adjustable. in short, caps make a kid more cute and charming.

Caps For Events: 

The caps not only used as casual but some caps are used to wear at  some specific events and occasions. Such as, at the birthday parties, kids used to wear colorful caps with different beautiful designs. Kids like to wear those type of caps at their on functions or at their some friend's party. At the time of getting that type of caps parents must be aware about their design; if it is suitable for their kid and is according to their age also.

Is Your Baby Ready to Walk!

A baby who can stand with some support, such as by holding on mom,s finger, by holding a chair, small table or anything else. Now you should be prepared for his next step, that is to walk around. Most of the babies take their first independent step around their first birthday. But it does not mean that each baby should start walking up to his first birthday. Some babies start walking up to 8 or 9 months and some others start at round about 18 to 19 months, those are also normal.
In fact, when babies are able to stand with support, then they are near to walk. first they tried to walk with support, such as by holding up their mom's finger or by holing a thing that they can grip easily and there is enough space to walk. So when you observe that your is standing confidently, then provide him opportunity to walk. You can do this by putting him in a walker, or make him stand in such a place where he can find a support easily to walk, for example, make him stand with a sofa or bed or table or with a row of chairs. I want to say you make your baby in a place where he would have a margin to walk.
 after few day or weeks a baby try to walk independently without a support. So, be careful, and do not leave your alone when he is in position to stand or walk with support. Because, when a baby try to walk independently he may can hold himself and may cause some accident. Therefore at this time a baby need more attention and care.
You can reinforce your baby by clapping or calling him to you. You should encourage your baby to walk. And make an effective plan for your baby. If going to buy a walker for him, then keep in your mind the walker should not be more heavy or too light. Because more heavy walker would be hard for a baby to drag it with him. And too light walker may cause some accident as it can be turn over. So, the design and shape of walker is much important. Other than this you should be careful about shoe selection also.

Baby's Teeth Problems and Dental Care

The kid's milk teeth are as important, as permanent.kids need healthy teeth, strong jaws to chew their food and have a charming smile. Milk teeth keep space in jaws for the permanent teeth. If a milk tooth lost too early, the teeth beside it may drift into the empty space. and at the time of permanent teeth there may not be enough place. This can be resulted into crooked and crowded teeth. The infants can also get cavities.
The cavities are caused by acid attack on a susceptible tooth. The acids are formed due to the interaction of bacteria(plaque) and ferment-able carbohydrates.
The ferment-able carbohydrates and the liquids is allowed to pool around the teeth, the bacteria that are present will form acid,  which eventually leads to decay. Upper anterior teeth are more pron teeth than others.

Care and tips: The tooth decay is preventable, But for this purpose, parents need to take some steps.

  1. do not allow the child to have bottle in their mouth.
  2. after each feeding, wipe the baby's gums with something soft, such as damp gauze pad. And reinforce your toddlers and elder kids to brush teeth minimum twice a day, especially before going to bed.
  3.   Discourage your kids to use more sweets and juices.
