When I was pregnant, I really wanted a girl. My sonny before sex was Ksyusha, and the fact that I was waiting for a boy was a strong shock for me. Honestly, I had no idea what to do with him, how to care for him and so on.
When my baby was born and began to grow up, my opinion changed dramatically. Now I, on the contrary, cannot imagine myself to be a girl’s mom. Of course, I want my child to be the best and healthiest. Therefore, I, like any normal mother, pay special attention to the hygiene of my son.
At once I will say that pah-pah, we did not have any special health problems. I do not know whether this is due to the fact that we are watching this or not. But the child never had any problems with the genitals. I have a golden rule – nature itself knows what the child needs, so I do not interfere with it.
Open or not the head, thinking out loud
I do not insist, and my opinion is not the last resort, but I am categorically against surgical intervention in the genitals of the child. This applies to circumcision (of course, if it is not a religious aspect) and opening the head.
From an early age, when I washed the baby, I lightly and gradually opened the head. As a result, we have no accrete places and by 3.5 years old, the head of the son opens almost completely. Let pediatricians say that by this age it should open completely, I believe that everything has its time.
Of course, there are situations when the head grows together, pus appears. There is no need to delay and surgical intervention is necessary. But, to be honest, I have heard so many unpleasant stories about the attitude of the surgeons and the consequences of such an operation that they not only did not change their mind, but once again became convinced of this.
As for the use of all kinds of cosmetics for washing and bathing, we preferred Eared Nurse or Aveno cosmetics. Another good Johnson baby, but not local production. We were allergic to Russian cosmetics, and relatives sent from Canada – this is heaven and earth. The difference is colossal. And the smell and consistency.
We also really liked Kikovskaya bath foam. The baby was bald by her.
By the way, recommendations for moms who have children with allergies. Buy funds with plantain or dandelion. They helped us a lot, especially the Red Hat line. The son’s skin immediately became tender, dryness disappeared, and the redness of the eruptions disappeared.
