Simple Steps to Prevent Infections During Pregnancy

healthychildren.org

Here are 11 things you can do during pregnancy to protect yourself and your baby from infections.
1. Maintain good hygiene and wash your hands often—especially when around or caring for children.
2. Cook your meat until it's well done.
3. Avoid unpasteurized (raw) milk and foods made from it. Do not eat soft cheeses such as feta, brie, and queso fresco unless they have labels that say they are pasteurized.
4. Ask your doctor about Group B streptococcus (GBS). About 1 in 4 women carry this type of bacteria, but do not feel sick.
5. Talk to your doctor about vaccinations.
6. Get tested for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), such as HIV and hepatitis B, and protect yourself from them.
7. Avoid people who have an infection.
8. Protect against insects known to carry diseases.
9. Do not touch or change dirty cat litter and avoid contact with potentially contaminated soil.
10. Stay away from wild or pet rodents, lizards and turtles, and their droppings.
11. Only take vitamins in the doses recommended by your doctor.

healthychildren.org ​Infections during pregnancy can hurt both the mother-to-be and her baby. Making healthy choices and taking a few extra precautions can improve the chances that babies will be born healthy.  ​

Winter Car Seat Safety Tips from the AAP

healthychildren.org

Winter is a tricky time for car seats. As a general rule, bulky clothing, including winter coats and snowsuits, should not be worn underneath the harness of a car seat. In a car crash, fluffy padding immediately flattens out from the force, leaving extra space under the harness. A child can then slip through the straps and be thrown from the seat.
See other car seat safety tips here.

One of the most helpful tips to help your child's shot visit to be less stressful: Be Happy & Calm - A smile goes a long way, especially between parents and their children. Children often take their parents’ moods into account when experiencing the world around them. Hugs, cuddles, soft whispers, and a calm, reassuring attitude will help ease children through the vaccination process. Remain upbeat and relaxed before, during, and especially after shots. Let your child know everything is ok.

Brush, Book, Bed: How to Structure Your Child’s Nighttime Routine

healthychildren.org

How to Care for your Child's Teeth:
As soon as baby is born, you can start good oral health practices. If possible, use a soft washcloth to wipe your baby's gums after feedings. Remember not to put babies to bed with a bottle filled with milk. And, when it is time to introduce solids, choose healthy foods to reduce the risk of tooth decay.
For children under age 3: As soon as you see a tooth in your baby's mouth you can start to BRUSH! Use a smear (grain of rice) of toothpaste with fluoride 2 times per day.
For children ages 3–6: Use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. It is OK to let them practice with the brush, but you get your turn too.

healthychildren.org Having a predictable nighttime routine will help your children understand and learn to expect what comes next. Additionally, routines may ease the stress that some families experience at nighttime

Thanksgiving often means family and friends including many who want to hold the new baby. Many parents find that it helps to set limits and say no to family and friends if you feel that you (or your baby!) can’t cope.
- Try to make sure that your baby is nursing according to their usual pattern.
- Be alert to your baby’s cues.
- Be prepared to intervene if your baby is getting over-stimulated or needs to nurse.
- Try finding a quiet place to nurse so that your baby is less distracted.
- Don’t allow yourself to feel guilty if nursing is preventing you from “helping out”.
- As an added bonus, baby is less likely to become sick especially thanks to the protective antibodies in your milk.

Antibiotic Prescriptions for Children: 10 Common Questions Answered

healthychildren.org

Have Questions about Antibiotics for your Children? Top Ten questions answered here:

1. My child has a really bad cold. Why won't the doctor prescribe an antibiotic?
Colds are caused by viruses. Antibiotics are used specifically for infections caused by bacteria. In general, most common cold symptoms—such as runny nose, cough, and congestion—are mild and your child will get better without using any medicines.

2. Don't some colds turn into bacterial infections? So why wait to start an antibiotic?
In most cases, bacterial infections do not follow viral infections. Using antibiotics to treat viral infections may instead lead to an infection caused by resistant bacteria. Also, your child may develop diarrhea or other side effects. If your child develops watery diarrhea, diarrhea with blood in it, or other side effects while taking an antibiotic, call your child's doctor.

3. Isn't a nose draining yellow or green mucus a sign of a bacterial infection?
During a common cold, it is normal for mucus from the nose to get thick and to change from clear to yellow or green. Symptoms often last for 10 days.

Sinusitis is a term that means inflammation of the lining of the nose and sinuses. A virus or allergy can cause sinusitis and in some cases, bacteria can be the cause.

There are certain signs that bacteria may be involved in your child's respiratory illness. If your child has a common cold with cough and green mucus that lasts longer than 10 days, or if your child has thick yellow or green mucus and a fever higher than 102°F (39°C) for at least 3 or 4 days, this may be a sign of bacterial sinusitis.

If your child has developed bacterial sinusitis (which is uncommon), an antibiotic may be needed. Before an antibiotic is prescribed, your child's doctor will ask about other signs and examine your child to make sure an antibiotic is the right medicine.

See answers to these questions by following the link...

4. Aren't antibiotics supposed to treat ear infections?
5. Aren't antibiotics used to treat all sore throats?
6. Do antibiotics cause any side effects?
7. How long does it take an antibiotic to work?
8. Can antibiotics lead to resistant bacteria?
9. What are antiviral medicines?
10. How can I use antibiotics safely?

healthychildren.org Parents need to know that using antibiotics when they are not the right medicine will not help and may even cause harm to children. Read on for answers from the AAP to common questions about the use of antibiotics.
