This includes information about the birth details of your baby like date of birth, time of birth, mode of delivery, condition of baby at birth, any complication, etc.
Developmental observation card (DOC):
We will provide a chart which will give you information about the development of baby stage wise at different months. It’s a phase to test and learn. That’s what all babies do. It is important however to understand how your baby thinks and what is important to keep in mind.
Breast milk is the gold standard in infant feeding. We will explain about advantages of breast feeding, facts and techniques, duration of breastfeeding, correct positions, why it is best for babies and how to increase breast milk supply.
IAP 2015 growth charts:
Growth monitoring is important to identify growth faltering and growth is a very good indicator of the overall well-being of the child. So, we will provide you with growth charts to monitor the growth of your baby.
TDSC, LEST Charts:
These charts are for the early detection of developmental delay, language delay
IAP recommends vaccination chart for routine use. Childhood immunisation was implemented to reduce the spread of certain harmful diseases amongst local communities. It has proven to be a very successful tool in keeping our kids healthy.
Complementary feeding is the feed given in addition to the breast milk. We will tell you when and how to start weaning, what to give and what not to give.
We will provide you with the information about the nutritional food to be given and in what quantity. What do babies need to grow and develop into bouncing babies and healthy active toddlers? Looking after the nutritional needs of an infant until six months is fairly easy feed them breast milk (ideally) or formula. But at around six months, a baby's nutritional needs exceed what he or she can get from milk feeds, which is why we begin complimentary feeding or solids. Breast milk or formula will still remain a considerable part of their nutritional requirements right through until at least 12 months.
Infant skin care:
Skin acts as a protective barrier and temperature regulator. There are differences between adult and baby skin, so how to take care of your baby’s skin will be explained, what products to be used, baby massage and baby bath. Taking care of your new born baby can be a "challenging" experience at times. How warm should the bath water temperature be or how to coax your little one to a restful night of good sleep, find the answers to these questions here with our detailed information. Your baby's skin is so soft and smooth and just delightful to touch. However, this also means that the skin is very sensitive and prone to bouts of the occasional irritating skin problem and when baby is irritated, chances are, so are you.
Providing the right stimulation at the right time is the key for brain development. The stimulation program will be of use to the parents of high-risk babies as well as to the normal child to bring best out of them. Mother should be therapist for this program. Age appropriate toys and stimulation environment plays key role in development of the child.
We will be discussing about certain problems which are common in babies and could be tackled easily without being panic. We would also be telling you the situation when to seek immediate help.
Age appropriate toys:
Toys safety guidance lines: pick up age appropriate toys, avoid sharp points/ edges, make sure your child is ready for toy.
Behavioural problems, symptoms and acts:
Behavioural disorders, also known as disruptive behavioural disorders, are the most common reasons that parents are told to take their kids for mental health assessments and treatment. Behavioural disorders are also common in adults. If left untreated in childhood, these disorders can negatively affect a person’s ability to hold a job and maintain relationships.
This includes the do’s and don’ts to prevent the accidents
Adolescent: common problems and parenting
Adolescent development typically begins around 11 years of age and continues until 19 to 21 years. The developmental stages of adolescence, which include physical, cognitive and social emotional development, are divided into early, middle and late adolescence. The goal of adolescent development is to move toward a more mature sense of self and purpose. Teens learn how to establish and maintain healthy relationships, share intimacy comfortably and to understand abstract ideas and develop their own moral viewpoints.
