Your Baby's Health
Your baby’s health begins with your own health. Every parent wants to have a baby who is healthy in all aspects. Your baby’s health is as important as your own, and you should take initiative to maintain it as your baby depends on you.

Keep your baby clean
Keeping baby clothes clean and a hygienic environment for him to sleep and relax in improves a babies health. Make sure the baby is bathed regularly and kept clean at all times to prevent germs from getting into his system. Baby’s clothes should be washed separately from the rest of the laundry and their utensils, such as bottles and food containers, should be sterilised and stored away from the rest of the kitchenware.
Limit your baby’s risk for infections
Cover public surfaces that come into contact with your baby, such as changing areas, with baby towels or a mat. Use baby wipes while changing his nappies and dispose of them outside the house. Preferably, use hand sanitiser after using public facilities such as bathrooms, elevators, ATM machines, shopping trollies, hand rails and others.
