Breast milk is best for your baby
The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. After six months of age, infants should receive age appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.

Your cleaning solution may contain kids

When a child arrives, a home naturally grows with love and laughter. But few parents would ever mention that one secret: the list of chores grows too. Well, the good news is, as your child grows, he’d only be too happy to do everything you’re doing. So how about enlisting his help with the household chores? It’d not only sharpen his motor skills; chipping in will make him feel like he’s part of the family too.

But first, here are some guidelines for you so you can make this a fruitful experience for your child: 

  • Mind your manners. Because courtesy creates a cheerful helper.
  • Be specific with your instructions. For example, instead of telling your child to pick up his toys, say “Please pick up your toys and put them in the blue toy box”.
  • Praise often – and get it going right away, even before the chore is done! It is crucial to create positive momentum, especially with young kids.
