Cuddles to communicate

Cuddles and caresses are the first mean of effective communication between mum and her baby and strengthen their bond. The touch is one of the main senses, the first to develop, appearing already in the embryo.

During the first months of life, a baby’s skin is still very thin, with a thickness that is approximately half that of adults, tendentially dry and therefore, especially sensitive to external agents. That’s why it is subject to frequent cases of redness and irritation and some times  dermatitis, mainly in the nappy area, especially in…

How to Take Care of Baby’s Teeth and Gums

There’s the thinking that because baby teeth eventually fall out, there’s not much reason to look after them. Not so, say experts—how you treat those first little pearlies actually determines the health of adult teeth. Primary teeth—or ‘milk teeth’—are important for eating, as well as speech development. What’s more, they serve as place markers for permanent teeth.
