1. How do you care for your baby’s delicate skin? – By Dr Ong Eng Keow, Paediatrician, Mount Alvernia Hospital
Caring for your baby’s soft and delicate skin is important. What can you do to ensure that their skin stays hydrated and healthy? With more and more common skin allergies and problems (such as eczema) affecting young children, what are the prevention methods available and how can you manage it? Find out more from Dr Ong, who will share useful tips on caring for your baby’s skin.
2. Is my child on track? – By Esther Lim LEAP SchoolHouse
Every parent’s wish is for their child to grow up healthily. Hence it worries us when we notice that our child appears to be taking a long time to hit their milestones compared to their peers. While certain aspects of our child’s nature and growth cannot be rushed, there are things parents can do at home to nurture their baby and to help them in their development.
3. Is there such a thing as a breastfeeding-friendly workplace? – By NTUC U Family
Many mums may need to continue breastfeeding after going back to work to ensure optimum nutrition for their babies, hence there is the need to facilitate breastfeeding at work. What makes a workplace supportive towards their staff who have to pump at work? Is it possible to pump even if there is no proper lactation room at work? Hear NTUC U Family’’s Project Liquid Gold team share on real-life examples of supportive companies and creative ways to pump at work.
