Health Issues:bathing baby when he has cold
2009-03-16
Name: Radha Kannan
Hi

My 2 month old son is having a mild cold and the weather is also very bad.
I just wanted to know if it is ok to continue to bathe him - especially is it ok to give him a head bath?

Instead of bathing him, undress him in a warm room, take a soft cloth, wet in hot water, wring and wipe him clean. Then pat him dry with a towel and dress him immediately. You can give him a headbath after a gap of 2-3 days, until he is better.

If the cold persists, please visit your doc.

RE:umbilibal cord
Umbilical cord is basically a tube through which the baby and mother exchange all the nutrients and also oxygen. When the baby is delivered all his organs are developed enough to function on their own so the chord is not needed.... - Ashna [View Message]
RE:Retained placenta
Usually the placenta and everything comes out after the baby is delivered like after 30 mins or 1 hour. What did your doctor say about it? Have you consulted your gynac after the surgery and did he tell you to get any test done?... - NN [View Message]

RE:Monitoring during pregnancy
I don't know how accurate can an app be. What is the app about and what does it do? Do you think it is okay to follow an app during your pregnancy? Shouldn't you consult your gynac about instead of the app?... - NN [View Message]
RE:Retained placenta
I had once read that after delivery nothing like placenta or umbilical cord should be left inside the body. I think you should meet a doctor as soon as possible and tell him everything and see what he says about it.... - NN [View Message]
RE:frequent cold
Babies have a weak immune system and they need to be taken a lot of care of or else they get sick. Take your baby to a doctor and ask him what is that you would do to avoid your baby from the cold and cough.... - NN [View Message]
RE:Please advise: circumcise/ Urine infection/ VUR
Urine infection is very common in small children and there is nothing much to worry about it. Keep giving him the prescribed medicine and he will get better with time. And for the rest of the problems you should go to a doctor.... - Manisha [View Message]
