Baby Problems


Baby Problems: It is hard when your baby is sick. Common health problems in babies include colds, coughs, fevers and vomiting. Babies also commonly have skin problems, like nappy/diaper rash or cradle cap (cradle cap is the term used when seborrheic dermatitis affects the scalp of infants). Many of these problems are not serious. It is important to know how to help your sick baby and to know the warning signs for more serious problems.

Baby Problems - Prevention:  If you are breastfeeding avoid spicy and gassy foods like cabbage, garlic, onions, broccoli and caffeine to prevent babies from colic and gas. If you are formula-feeding, use formulas with reduced lactose as this can relieve gas.
