Baby Caps

Cap is an important part of dressing. Sometimes it is needed to be wear for style, sometime for protection from clod weather, sometime for protection from sun. Any how, there are many types of cap; simple cap, P cap, hat, etc.
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 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. Because in case, if you are going to buy a birthday cap at your kid's first birthday, then be careful, at that stage kids use to put everything in their mouth. And most of these caps are made up of hard paper. that's why parents should keep in view this aspect also. Other caps are also used at particular occasions, such as, Christmas cap.

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 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.

When a child is suffering from skin rash, it would be a great problem for parents. Among infants and toddlers , rashes are usually appeared in nappy area and under arm. The bright red rash always alert the parents.
 A common rash disappears by themselves within a day or two by applying a common baby lotion or cream.
But be aware before using a rash cream or lotion, that are commonly available in the market. Because most of them use lanolin which makes the rash more worse, in the case when a child is naturally sensitive or allergic to lanolin. However, it the most trusted ingredient that is used in rah creams and lotions and is not harmful to the majority of kids. But in very few cases it is seen more reactive to the a specific type of skin.
Anyhow, a common rash is not much thing that is usually caused by some particular kind of fabric that i a kid wearing, usually woolen clothes have some type of reactions to the sensitive and delicate baby's skin. Or it is caused by diapers in nappy area, or, by extreme weather especially winter. But, what so ever rash always irritates the babies.
In some cases, it is more dangerous. Because, sometimes, it is giving threats of some harmful and fatal diseases, such as measles, chicken pox etc. In that cases the rash should be taken more seriously and should not be treated with common creams and lotions but the kid should be taken to the doctor in a moment. Because, some of these diseases are life threatening for kids.

How to recognize if it is common rash or some diseases?

5 Point for Kids Playground Design

Play ground for kid are necessary for their proper physical fitness, development of motor skills, social interaction and much more. Building a great play ground involves to combine all those ideas that can create a single integrated place that is not only loved by kids but also, is an aid for their development and physical fitness.
Here are some points that will help you to design and build a nice play ground for your kids.

Free Play:

Today kids have lot of choices, such as, soccer, gymnastic, tea ball, craft classes, DVDs, and more than 50 TV channels. No the question is, Where does the play ground fit it?

The adults think that the bet experience for kid is the game and activities directed by adults. But, the truth is, hen kids play without adult intervention, they become more confident, creative and spontaneous. Because organised activities does not allow the kids to pretend and express themselves freely. 
 The play grounds promote free play, that builds social skills, sportsman spirit, confidence and self-esteem satisfaction.   There free play activity by play ground authority is much important.
Free play does not mean without the presence of adult. It mean without intervention of  adults.  

Kids Stuff:

Now the question is how to promote free play at play grounds. Its all about stuff in play ground. There are many issues regarding equipment; its size, safety and cost etc. And the stuff is needed according to different age groups of kid. Therefore it should be divided into three parts. one for Pre-school kid, one for 5-10 years kid and one for 10 and more. 

Approach for all kids:

While building a play ground it should also kept in view that the play ground should be accessible for all kids. The designer should also keep in view the special kids. There should be activities for handicaps, the blind the deaf and dump kids also. 

Balance :

80% injuries in play grounds are caused by the unbalance surfaces.  Hence, the surface should be balance and smooth for all games.  Other than this the equipment, like ladders swings, monkey bars etc, must have standard height. For the school age children not more than 8 feet and for Pre school kids not more than 6 feet high. 

Safety and Security of kids:

Safety of kids is necessary. There should be proper partition for each age group part and particularly the area that is bounded for special kids. So, that the younger and elder kids do not get mixed. Other than this there should be a ground supervisor, who can interfere when the play gets dangerous. 

The National Program for Play Ground Safety provides a kit for play ground supervisor. It includes manual and video

The Top 10 Things for a Child to Deter him from the abuse of Alcoholism

Alcohol is a drug like cocaine and marijuana. It is dangerous for kids and its use is illegal for individuals under the age of 21. The kids, who use alcohol, may become the victims of violent crimes or can be involved in drinking related traffic crashes or accidents. They may also have to face the problems at school.

          You may think, “My child is not drinking yet.”  No, you are wrong. You must keep them aware of drinking and drugs. If you want to be strong parents, then, you would have to plane for it. As a parent you, yourself should have proper awareness about alcoholic products and their harm. After that, you need to take some steps for your child, against the use of alcoholic drinks.

          Now the question is how you would deter your child from alcohol abuse. You can do a few things to prevent your child from alcohol.

1)    You should observe keenly your child’s activities, i-e what is he doing? How does he spending his time?  You should inquire about his routine, time to time, so that the child remains alert about his routine which is being observed by his parents. But it does not mean you impose yourself on him/her, this may make him frustrated. Your behavior should be friendly.
2)    You need to build strong taboo to your child. You need to discuss his/her problems and try to make yourself caring parents, so that they do not hesitate to share their problems. Because sometime they are forced to take alcohol. You need to discuss with them about their problems and get them out of bad situation.
3)    You must keep an eye on your child’s company.  You should be aware of their friends and their parents, because, oftenly company affects the habits. If your child is moving in a community having alcoholic background, then, there would be a chance, your kid may start drinking.
4)    Another big reason for drinking among kids; especially in teens, is, ad campaigns on TV channels and other electronic media. The motivating style of ads and other programs, such as movies, TV shows etc. attracts the innocent minds to use alcoholic drinks. Hence the parents should make their children aware of fatal effects of alcohol. The parents also need to avoid their children from watching such harmful programs on electronic media.
5)     Another reason for drinking among kids or teen is their boredom. Sometimes children start drinking to beet their boredom. For this purpose, parents need to indulge their children in some healthy activities, such as, after school supervised activities, and other co curricular activities. If you belong to the community where schools do not offer such activities, then, you have to manage alternative. For example, you can arrange a get together with the help of other parents. Then your child no more need to drink to beet his/her spare time.
6)    The most important thing for parents regarding this issue is their role in their child’s life. A parent is a role model for their young ones. Walk the talk, how can you expect your child to stay away from alcohol if you, yourself don’t. You need not to drink in the presence of your child.
7)    The depression is another main reason for drinking. Therefore you need to keep your child away from the issues that may make him/her depress. You must have to resolve your family issues that cause tension in your family life.
8)    Research your state law for underage drinking. Then have a sitting with your child and discuss the outcomes of getting caught. It will make your child not only aware of rule but also responsible.
9)     You can create a drinking contract for your child. Suppose, you do not allow your child to attend a party where alcohol is available, you also would have an offer to drive for your child anytime. Your child would not travel with a person who is drinking. You can decide different articles of contract by mutual understanding, and the consequences, in the case of breaking contract.
10)                       You can seek positive mentor for your child, outside the family. The groups or persons who would fortify belief and values of your family. Your child can formally obtain a mentor through spiritual or religious groups.
Your child is most precious treasure for you. You need to keep him away from bad situations. Although, it needs a bit struggle, but your little effort can save your future, because, child is your future. So, save your child, save your future.

Child Labour

Children are the gifts of God and they are considered the future of a nation. That's why kids are loved by all. People take care special care of their growth, education and training. But many children are deprived of even their basic rights. They have to serve hard labor. In many developed countries child labor is banned, but, in many countries, especially in under developed countries, children have to perform tough duties, such as, wash dishes at local hotels, work in mechanical work shops, collect objects from garbage, sale different things at stop points and signals.
Many of these kids lost their lives in road accidents. Many of them lost some part of body and became disable person for the his remaining life. The most fact about these kids is, the sexual torture. It is a so painful aspect of the life of those kids. Other than this, they become the victim of physical torture also. last year in Pakistan many kids, who were serving in house hold tasks Such as house maids,  were dead because of physical torture of their masters, most of them were girls. And there were great protests against this child torture.
Know the question is why the kids have to do that type of job? There are many reasons; the first reason is poverty. because of poverty these kids have no more way to do. Second reason is number of children in  family. The people having lack of resources, gave birth to many kids. Therefore, they put their little kids in work for more earning. The most crucial reason is there is no proper legislation in that states for children rights.
Any way, in any case we should not force the kids for hard labor. But, we should do something for their education.
