Hello, for boys, it suffices to gradually begin to loosen the foreskin around 0.5 years of age. Start gently stretching it every day while having a bath, but only so the foreskin is gently stretched, never try to stretch it farther by force or with fast movements, microcracks could occur, which scar when healing and then the foreskin cannot be stretched at all. In addition, microcracks are very painful.

Walker

Hello, I have a 6-month-old daughter, I’d like to ask if it is appropriate for her to get her a walker, one where the baby sits in it and lets her feet rest on the ground?

Hello, this “walker” is not suitable for a child of any age, or it might be acceptable, but only for a child who can sit on its own and already stands on its own or at least with support - so-called active sitting (she gets into the sitting position by herself, most often from kneeling, not that it is passively put into the sitting position). Most often a child can actively sit around the end of 8-10 months and only after it begins to climb on its own. But this child will definitely not be interested in this walker and you should not put her in it, because she can get everywhere he needs by herself. Therefore, it is not at all suitable for your 6-month-old daughter. This is for a reason see above. If you put your daughter in it, you could harm her because she does not have sufficiently developed muscles in the deep stabilizing system, i.e. the muscles of the back, abdomen and legs. This would lead to her collapsing in the walker and hanging in it, meaning other muscle groups would have to work, moreover in an unnatural position than is desirable for the child’s natural development. Another reason is that you would “force” your daughter to skip her natural psychomotor development, which could lead not only to motor problems, but also to mental problems, such as impaired concentration at school.

Hello, if your daughter tolerates the foods you mentioned, you can gradually and slowly start with white yoghurts (from roughly the 7th month). Do not give her quark until the end of the 10th month and do not give it daily, it contains more protein, which could overtax the kidneys.

Hello, dress your son in about 1 layer more than you wear, which means, for example, a long-sleeved bodysuit, tights, a sweatshirt and a cotton hat is enough, and then put him in overalls - such as fleece or cotton, and only then pop him into the footmuff. You can find out whether he is too hot by feeling under the neck or behind the nape.

Hello, if it is not necessary, cut the nails when the baby is 10-14 days old, or even older. If you cut them earlier, there is a greater risk that you could cut your baby's nails more and cause an injury and an infection could get into the wound. If you need to cut them sooner, it is better to put on baby gloves or socks so as not to scratch, in the most extreme case use a nail file and just file them a few times.
