1: Does your baby have the flu? | It can be hard to tell if a baby has the flu. If a baby has the flu he/she could have the following symptoms: a poor appetite, sore throat, runny nose and a fever. Flu occurs mostly from October to February. Take your baby to his or her pediatrician immediately because dehydration can occur and may be life threatening. Once you know the baby has the flu do not give them any medication unless approved by the doctor. Be sure to provide the baby with many fluids such as water and juices. A doctor may prescribe antibiotics for severe cases. To help prevent your baby from getting the flu you should wash bedding and blankets regularly. You should also keep floors clean and disinfected. A flu vaccine is available to babies that are 6 months and older.
2: Keeping a healthy baby 1. You should take your baby to the doctor regularly so you can know your babies health. 2. You wash your hands with soap under warm water for at least for 20 seconds. 3. If someone is sick, try to discourage them from touching your baby or his or her toys. When going out, the less crowded the place, the better. 4. Always carry hand sanitizer or disinfectant wipes with you. You should always disinfect your baby's toys or anything that goes into their mouth.
