Baby Health – What You Can Do To Keep Your Child Healthy

Baby health is one of the subjects that we can’t leave uncovered. Obviously, having a healthy baby is extremely important.  Stop by any hospital nursery and you can’t help but adore the bundles of joy behind the glass, even if one of them isn’t yours. They are just so cute and cuddly and smell good (sometimes, anyway!) Usually, babies start out healthy, so it is our job to keep them that way.

Baby Health - What You Can Do To Keep Your Child Healthy

The truth is that there are five (5) areas that a baby needs in order to thrive, i.e.…water, food, clothes, air and baby products. All of these are totally controllable by you, the parent. So let’s take a look at each one and what you can do to ensure your baby’s health.

Water Water in older homes may contain levels of lead that could harm a new baby’s developing systems. A simple filtering system can take care of this in a hurry. A filter system can be purchased for just about $100 (probably less) and mounts right to the faucet.

As an alternative, you could just buy bottled, distilled water for baby to drink. This may seem easier, but will cost considerably more in the long run. Food Food is perhaps THE most important area to watch. With all the choices available to us today, an organically grown food is wise for the baby’s health.

Organic foods are grown without the use of pesticides or chemicals. This protects your baby from toxins, which have an especially strong effect on developing little babies. They also generally taste better, which encourages young children to eat more foods that are good for them.

Do not make the mistake of thinking that “natural” on the label means “organic” in the package. At least in America, there are NO legal requirement attached to the claim ”natural.” Anyone is allowed to call their product natural or all natural.  So it is up to YOU to do the research and read labels. Even foods that are touted as “all natural” are subjected to chemicals and pesticides and antibiotics during growth.
