Did you just observe your little one looking at you with all the concentration in the world, as she watches your lip movements? As you talk to her, she realizes that the sounds that come from your throat are making distinct sense, so she tries to make them herself. So soon, you shall hear an outpouring of ‘da da da’s and ‘bababa’s! A lot of learning is happening at the sound front, as your baby continues to grasp the flow of vowels, consonants and a whole of words.
There are more chances of your infant catching some infection or the other- she might either catch a cold or a ear infection. Her ear might become red, or her you will know that she has a cold, with her runny nose. Some babies might just not display any symptoms, so if you feel that she is not looking her usual self, you should think of calling up her pediatrician, just to be sure. If she is running fever, you could try keeping a cold compress on her head. If she has a stuffed nose, and can’t sleep at night, try raising her head at a higher level, with an extra pillow. Many parents swear by alternative remedies, rather than using strong antibiotics prescribed. But each one has his own viewpoint. Some believe that acupressure relieves ordinary maladies, some swear by chiropractics. Sometimes it is just wise to let your instincts lead you to the right solutions.
