Infant Nasal Congestion - Common Causes of Your Baby's Nasal Congestion

An infant who is having trouble breathing because of nasal congestion is tough to watch. Too young to understand how to clear the nose by blowing, and unable to tell you just how he's feeling, it's a frustrating time for many new parents. Here are several common causes of infant nasal congestion, suggestions for dealing with them, and a solution that can help reduce the frequency of congestion. The common cold is well named because it does occur so frequently. One of the best ways to help your infant avoid congestion that comes with a cold is to take steps to prevent it. Keep hands, toys, crib railings as clean as possible. Avoid, as best you can, close interaction with other children who are contagious (sneezing, coughing, runny noses) as your infant's immune system is not strong enough to fight off the germs. When colds happen, and they will, clear baby's nose with a nasal bulb syringe. This can provide instant relief for your baby in a non-invasive way. And relief for your baby means piece of mind for yo...

Child Bowel Obstruction Remedies

Baby constipation is a really typical cause of concern for parents. Young children will often have a lot of variations in the regularity, appearance or consistency of their movements. It can be really easy to understand if you're concerned about this, especially if you are a first time parent.Breast fed babies poop less often as the majority of the breast milk they drink will get absorbed and digested by the body. Some of them encounter hard stools the very first time when shifting over from breast milk to a cows milk based formula or maybe the changing of formulas can result in the uncomfortable symptoms. When it is in powdered form, never press down on it if you are measuring it to prepare. It could make the milk more concentrated and cause more deposits accumulate in the colon, which would be extremely difficult for a little infant with a delicate digestive system to process. Therefore please do not pack the powder when you are making the formula.Consider carefully using a baby enema syringe. Apply petrole...

D-Day's 70th Anniversary

"People of Western Europe, the hour of your liberation is approaching. All patriots, men and women, young and old, have a part to play in the achievement of final victory. This landing is but the opening phase of the campaign of Western Europe. Great battles lie ahead. I call upon all who love freedom to stand with us now."According to the History Channel, this was the recording broadcasted by Dwight D. Eisenhower on June 6, 1944, also known as "D-Day". On this day in American history, both British and American troops descended upon Normandy Beach in France in order to halt the German expansion in Europe. Fortunately, on August 25 of that year, the Allies liberated France, and later liberated Europe as a whole. The battle at Normandy was known as the "key to victory," and this past weekend, we celebrate D-Day's 70th anniversary. Even almost a century later, D-Day, part of "Operation Overlord," was the "largest amphibious invasion of all time," since Allied forces took to both land and sea when it came to swar...
