Do it now vitamin D drops

Description: vitamin D drops

One topic your paediatrician will likely bring up at your first visit: Starting your newborn on vitamin D drops. The body makes vitamin D when it’s exposed to the sunlight, but Child Advisor Dr. Arun Wadhwa says that it’s advisable to keep infants younger than 6 months out of the sun, especially during summer. “The vitamin D drops can be started when the baby is just 15 dasys old to protect her bones, and help prevent diseases such as diabetes and cancer. Your baby requires 1ml or 400 IU of vitamin D drops every day till 2 years of age,” says Dr. Wadhwa.

“Sun Sips and calshine D are some of the commonly used vitamin D drops for babies,” says Dr. Wadhwa. Others, like D-Vi-Sol, come as liquid suspensions (it’s best to squirt a full dropper of it into your infant’s mouth). You should avoid putting vitamins and medications in expressed breast milk, or other liquids: “If your baby doesn’t finish it, you won’t know how much she actually took in,” Dr. Wiskind explains. If you want to do it the natural way, Child Advisor Dr. rajiv Chhabra recommends 20 minutes of daily massage in the sun, in the morning. “The early morning sun (around 8 a.m.) is a great source of vitamin D,” says Dr. Chhabra.

Do it later going down drowsy

Laying your little one in the crib before his eyes shut, so he learns to fall asleep on his own is one of the first steps you can take toward sleep training. Early on, though, he’ll probably fall asleep in your arms – and that’s absolutely fane.

In the first eight weeks, try laying your babe sown in his bassinet when he’s still awake but starting to nod off; this way, you’ll see if he can soothe himself to sleep. If you’re uncomfortable with his crying, pick him up and try again later. Get him used to being horizontal by lying with him on the floor as you look up at a mobile, or listen to music.

You can wait till Baby is about 3 weeks old before laying her on her belly each day. This will build her neck, core, and arm strength, all of which is essential to develop the motor skills she needs to roll over. Tummy time also takes pressure off the back of her head, and can help prevent flat spots. Be sure to do it while she’s alert!

“If Baby is lying on her belly on your lap, that’s tummy time,” Dr. Chandra-Puri says. Once you’re ready to let your cutie do it also, place her stomach-down on a play mat or blanket, and lie on the floor next to her so she’ll be distracted by looking at you. “It’s okay to let your child be mildly uncomfortable for five minutes so she’ll learn to soothe herself in a new setting,” Dr. Wiskind says. Work up to letting her spend an hour a day on her belly, spread out in increments gradually.

To begin, you’ll need a clean pair of infant-size clippers or scissors, and an emery board. “I find it easiest to clip nails when your baby is sleeping or being help by another adult,” Dr. Jana says. Pull the skin on his fingertips away from his nails, and then carefully clip along the carve of the nail, making sure you don’t leave any sharp edges.

Do it later storytelling hour and playtime

Curling up with a book, and playing around with toys are great ways to bond with your baby while building her cognitive and motor skills. “The best stimulation for a newborn is your voice and face,” says Dr. Wiskind. “Talk, sing, coo to your baby – things you do naturally.”

Ready to read? Choose board books with simple stories and colourful picture. “Then find a comfy spot, and hold your infant cradled in one arm while you turn the pages,” Dr. Jana says. Don’t worry if the board books end up in your baby’s mouth, or she turns the page before you’re done; those are signs that she’s engaged and enjoying story hour.

At playtime, introduce toys that make a noise, so your sweetie experiences new sensations. They also help her discover cause and effect, and teach her to reach for objects, Dr. Jana says. Remember, the fun has just begun!
