Did you know that breastfeeding protects a child against a variety of diseases and conditions? Here are just a few:
• Respiratory tract infection
• Urinary tract infection
There is no getting around the importance of frequent hand washing. It helps prevent the spread of germs. Children need to wash their hands before eating.
It’s important for children to get regular checkups with their health care provider. These visits are a chance to check your child's development. They are also a good time to catch or prevent problems.
