Went for 6wks immunization n a woman there saw my baby n said she has "ila" (yoruba term) don't know d english name for it, she also said she has open front head. She suggest alagbo, which I bought, n started yesterday. Pls mama does it work? I don't feel comfortable given her. Cos she's still tender(6wks old). It my first time taking such, I've never tasted agbo
agbo can destroy your baby's kidney. Stop giving her.

Is ila on the skin or her head? post a picture

Open front head = Fontanelle is normal and will close by itself when she's older

One Size Adjustable reusable Diaper
Three rows of adjustable snaps to allow for a small, medium,large size in one diaper. Usually fit 0-2years' baby.

If you are looking for a high quality pocket diaper to last through your baby’s infancy, toddlerhood and even future babies, it is worth the money to invest in cloth diapers. Grow with your baby.

Please use wisdom to follow them. If you are the stern type, insist on what you want for your baby. If they are the controlling type, endure and leave soon to your place.
For the baby, you still need shawl when carrying him, but for wrapping, you can wear a body suit before the sleepsuit and cap. That should be just fine. Let fan be minimal, maybe on number 1.
Hope this helps

I've only used the spray (and yes they are expensive) for nasal congestion in infants. I don't know if the drops will serve same purpose. Do ask the pharmacist for clarification

Why not talk to your husband let him handle his people, insist on breastfeeding your baby, even if you must give water please do not add glucose.
If you can't really do much then try your best to return to your home soon so that you can make the right choice for your child.

Moms please, how do I get my baby to drink water. She doesn't accept water. The trick we use is when she's not fully conscious from sleep and the water must be warm and in a feeding bottle, she would accept little.
I was thinking of sweetening water a bit with Ri.bena.
Then, I don't know if I've asked before... Please, how good is P.eak Baby Formula compared to Nan 2. We are about progressing to 2nd stage formula.
I'm also concerned about the quantity of the formula. Is the tin full? Because Nan na scam. A friend suggested Cow & Gate but it is very scarce in my area.

Truth is, the only way you can be firm with them is if you yourself know what is a myth and is truth and the dos and don'ts of childcare. Join ask the pediatricians on Facebook and learn from there.

Definitely do not give glucose! Giving water to an ebf baby just takes up space in the baby's belly and hence reduces the quantity of breastmilk your baby is taking. There's no nutrients in water and breastmilk contains all the water a baby needs. Also the process of giving the water might introduce infection to the baby.

On dressing, if the baby is sweating then he's hot. Dress him appropriately. A bodysuit and sleepsuit at night ditch the cap since you're not using fan.

I'll start with the (open front head)
front fontanelle; it's not open. Your baby may be dehydrated so feed more especially with breastmilk

For "ila" simply apply little bit of baby tribotan because of heat. Speaking from experience

It might be a bacterial infection. If the prescribed antibiotics didn't work do return to the hospital for a review with your pediatrician.

Anybody handling the child is supposed to wash their hands to prevent bacterial infections

It depends on the age of the pregnancy. Some local airlines wouldn't carry beyond 28weeks pregnancy. Check with the airline on their pregnancy policy before buying the ticket.

Just keep giving her water..although she's not taking it because its not sweet like formula/milk, sweetening the water isn't a good choice especially in the long run.

Don't know about the formulas

This looks like what yorubas call alefo (don't know if I got the spelling). If it is, it happened to my first daughter. All we applied was one small herbal cream like caca.tin. and it cleared off. Please find out in the hospital first.

I went my baby's hair and scalp, and apply Vasel.ine. It's easier to comb that way

Good evening mummies, please after 6 weeks immunization I noticed that my baby has been crying from time to time, I thought it was the injection pain, but when I touch his stomach, I noticed that it is making noise/sound like grumping, so once the stomach starts making noise, he'll raise the legs up towards the stomach, then he'll start pushing, once he starts that, the stomach will become hard, at times he will fart, but once the stomach stop making noise, he'll be calm, it's very frequent, most especially at night. And I noticed that if I place him on my chest, he sleep more or he if he is sleeping on his tummy. He'll sleep peacefully. Please help, what can I do. So sorry for the long post

I guess its colic..but my daughter's own started earlier than six weeks ,so I'm not really sure,just advising according to your description..there's nothing you can do..just continue with tummy time,and this bicycle exercise for colic,you can google/check YouTube for it.you can try infacol for relief,hopefully it works for you..Its a phase,it will surely pass
