Baby Care and Baby Development

All round development of their child is the main concern of the parents. Their three main concerns are diet, activities and behavior. These three child care issues are very important for a child’s all round growth.

Eating right is important for a child to be healthy and happy. Baby food diet guidelines are never easy to follow, as each child is unique and reacts differently to different food. It is found that more than 40% of children are overweight. Healthy homemade baby food is the best for your child’s all round development. Homemade squash, perfectly cooked lentils, boiled vegetables such as carrot and beans, mashed fruits such as apple and banana are packed with nutrients such as vitamins, proteins, fiber, iron and calcium. These food items are easy to prepare and tasty to eat.

Properly fed baby is active and happy. She is willing to play and participate in various activities. Parents can help their child develop fine motor skills by encouraging her to perform various activities such as drawing and scribbling, filling up and emptying a container with toys, stacking, sorting or stringing colorful blocks etc. Simple activities such as dressing and undressing or pinching and poking can help developing fine motor skills in a child.

Proper sleep is also important for growth and development of a child. Create a perfect sleep environment in your child’s room. A baby’s nursery or a child’s room should be peaceful and quiet with cool temperature and attractive décor. You can decorate it with Disney princess wallpapers or Disney fairies wallpapers. Perfect sleep environment, comfy bed and relaxing bedtime ritual such as reading a story or playing music or singing a song help in getting sound sleep.
