The needs and development of your 6 month old baby – Week 27

You should know the following:

Go to the emergency room.

This sounds scary, but you should be prepared for the worst scenario. The most common cases when your baby goes to the emergency room are severe allergies, intestinal obstruction, or asthma. If your baby is curious about the outside world and is active, it may accidentally eat or suction foreign matter, or wounds  that need to be stitched.

If your baby has difficulty breathing or anaphylaxis, dial 119. You should know where the nearest emergency room is and the way there (preferably children’s hospital). The emergency room staff will ask you to fill in some documents including your name, phone number, etc., so keep your health insurance policy., and the child’s physician.

Stay calm in front of your baby and let your baby feel that everything is under your control, even if you’re panicking. Your baby needs your comfort and needs more care than usual to reduce their sense of fear. Bring a diaper bag, change of clothes, some books and toys that your baby loves, and enough food for 1 or 2 meals. Ask medical health workers if you can feed your baby during the examination because it takes a long time to wait for an X-ray and may be fed by a physician.

Replace with cow’s milk.

Baby should not drink cow’s  milk until the age of 1. Instead, if you have the ability, you should continue to feed your baby until the age of 1, as long as the mother and the child still want it, they can keep going even after 1. If you are unable to feed your baby, you should give your baby an iron formula. Consult a physician about what formula to drink after baby weaning.

In the first year of your baby’s milk, be sure to let your baby drink whole milk, not low-fat or skim milk. It is generally recommended for babies before the age of 2 to drink whole milk, although some physicians allow babies over 18 months to drink milk containing 2% fat.
