Health problem among the babies is a common issue. These health troubles particularly to the new born are often a cause of anxiety and worry to the new parents. The new-born babies are so small and so very dependent on the parents that any small need of the baby becomes vital for the parents.
There are certain things that the baby does which are considered normal for the babies. But the parents might consider it as a problem and become extremely anxious.
The baby might not make any sound while sleeping, sleeps a lot during the first few days of her birth, wriggling around, have a considerable amount of mucus at the time of birth, irregular bowel motion just after birth, cries when about three weeks old, transient rashes, birthmarks, etc – all these are considered as normal for the child.
The parents are suggested not to consider these issues as problems and get worried unnecessarily. However there are a lot of other health problems of the babies and these can be treated naturally:
Baby acne: Baby acne is found among many babies. These babies are usually born with tiny red spots on the cheeks. This acne has been seen to persist till the baby attains the age of 6 months. Baby acne has many natural cures. Mix a teaspoon of honey and lemon juice and apply it on the affected area with the help of cotton swab. Leave it on the acne for about 30 minutes and then wash it off with warm water.
Less sleeping: Sometimes the babies tend to sleep less which can cause a lot of problems to the parents. This sleeping problem of the babies is sometimes related to the feeding problems. Feeding the child until she falls off to sleep can lead to problem with their sleeping pattern.
The baby will soon understand that she is being fed at the bedtime and will soon depend on it and expect it whenever she wakes up at night. So, the mothers should change the time of their feeding or the amount of time she feeds the baby so that they can fall asleep on their own.
