Tips

separator Health Tip: A Glass of Water for Nursing Mothers

Nursing mothers need lots of fluid. It would be a nice ritual for you to take her a glass of water (milk or juice are okay too) whenever she sits down to nurse.

Alternative Tip: Getting Rid of Cradle Cap

Cradle cap is a thick, scaly dandruff that often forms on babies’ scalps and eyebrows. To get rid of it, dab the affected area with olive oil, allow the scales to soften for at least a couple of hours, and then rub with a rough dry towel. Then shampoo the hair.
