Baby's health is them prime concern of each and every parent. There are many precautions which parents need to take to maintain their baby’s health and safety. Some of them are as below:

Doctor's Treatment and Check Ups:

During your baby's first three years of life take them to doctors periodically for checkups. Check whether they are developing and growing at a normal rate or not. Take your infant for check up every 2 to 3 months and make sure that your baby is developing appropriately or not. Also take tips from doctor for child care like what to give baby to eat, how much sleep should infant take, etc.

The basic pattern as suggested by experts is that a child should be checked up when they are 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 and 24 months old, and then once a while in a year until they are school age.

Doctors generally check up general appearance, skin, head, eyes, ears, nose, mouth, neck, heart, lungs, abdomen, muscles, genitals, arms, pulses, hips and other body parts.

Routine and regular check ups are highly encouraged.

Infant's Diet:
To maintain good health of a baby their daily diet is the most important factor.

Take care their diet does not have excess of any single nutrient. Baby food should be free from nitrates because nitrates can cause a poisoning called Methemoglobinemia in infants, which is very hazardous. It prevents infant's blood from absorbing oxygen. Some of the vegetables have naturally occurring nitrates in them like carrots, green beams, spinach, beets etc.

Also do not use salt, sugar and spice or any other such items in infant's food. Excess of these items in food can cause childhood obesity

Infant's clothing and bed: should be kept clean. Babies fall sick because of lack in cleanliness in their surrounding. Keep extra pairs of clothing for a baby ready always. Change the clothes of baby at least twice a day to avoid any kind of illness.

Take care that you do not cover babies with heavy blankets. Many a time heavy blankets result in a SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). Use light weight and clean blankets to cover your baby.

Also take care that flies and mosquitoes does not tease your infant. Always cover the infant with the mosquito nets when they are sleeping.

These are some of the measures and precautions should be taken to maintain your baby's health and safety.
