Monsoons not only bring fun with them, but they also bring some seasonal infections. In order to provide the best child care during the rainy season, while they enjoy themselves - you have to make your house & children ‘monsoon proof‘ or at least ‘monsoon ready‘. Ridhi Doomra shares few tips on how to be ready for the monsoon. Check these monsoon-time child care tips like 

How to Take Care of Baby in Rainy Season

Read few tips on how to be ready your child for the coming monsoon season.

1. Build Immunity

Catch the cold before it catches you! Monsoon is the season for cold, flu and other air borne & water borne infections. It’s better to build a good immunity by giving foods which are rich in Vitamin C & other foods which help to boost your child’s immune system. Supplements rich in Vitamins can be given. However, it’s always better to take them in the form of fruits & vegetables.

2. Home is a Safe-zone

It’s usually cold & breezy outdoors when it rains. A sudden change in temperature will affect your child’s health. Keep the house dry all the time & keep the room temperature to moderate. Keep your house and surroundings clean. Use antiseptic liquids while washing your little one’s clothes & while cleaning the house. Make your house insect proof. Monsoon brings its deadly friend ‘mosquito’. Instead of using a mosquito coil which, might lead to smoke allergies, use mosquito nets or liquid. Teach him/her to use a sanitizer for hand wash. Give them a hot bath if s/he gets drenched in the rain. Keep their feet dry at all times. Get them used to wearing slippers or socks inside the house.

3. No Outside Food

Mommy is the best cook! We know that water borne infections like diarrhea & food poisoning are common during monsoons. We do not know the kind of water they use to prepare and store food outside. It’s better to give your child homemade food, where we can control the cleanliness and storage of foods. Get creative in the kitchen and make their favorite street foods in a healthy way!

4. No Getting Wet

It’s easy to control infants from not going out in the rain. But once your child starts walking it’s not an easy task. These days because of the high pollution, we cannot expect rain water to be safe. Do not let him/her play in the rain. Pack a raincoat & water proof shoes in her school bag. Whenever you are taking your little one to the mall, or a grocery store in the rainy season, carry an umbrella &rain coats

5. Let them enjoy as well some times

I would like to suggest that you take a few precautions, and allow yourself and your children to enjoy the rainy season. Have a happy monsoon ! Read tips to protect children during monsoon-time

With Kara, if it's raining outside, I don't let her out until she has her jacket on AND zipped plus her hood up.

ATTENTION PLEASE!!! Am so glad expressing my profound gratitude to a man that is so concerned about other people's well being. I was suffering from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS TYPE II) over 2years, i have spent thousands of dollars in buying expensive drugs and visiting several hospitals in different countries, i was really in selvage pain "until" one glorious morning, i read about Dr. Kham on the internet on how he had helped and cured so many people suffering from HERPES 1$2, HPV, CANCER, HIV/AIDS, ALZHEIMER, FIBROID, ENLARGED PROSTATE and HEART DISEASE ETC. So I contacted him through this Email: dr. khamcaregiver@gmail. com   and i shared my problems with him, he gave me the healing procedure and i followed them. Two weeks later after I received and used his product, he told me to go for a medical test, behold the result was negative, now am HERPES VIRUS free. I just want to use this platform to thank Dr. Kham for curing me from that deadly virus and also for exposing his herbal cure to the world at large, please you can as well contact him at his Email: dr. khamcaregiver@gmail. com (or) visit his website https://drkhamherbalhealingcenter.wordpress.com/  or https://drkhamcaregiver.wixsite.com/drkhamcaregiverherba  you can also visit his Whatsapp at +2348159922297 for solutions to your health problems...
