From my recent post,i mentioned that i exposed my baby to reading books because i know that it will help them develop their skills.But as i have observed,baby's need time to play also.They should be given other output instead of just reading or just listening to baby songs.My hubby and i decided to buy a toy, something that he will enjoy at the same time develop his skills.Before we went to a mall ,i surf the net first to check whats good for his age..I then saw this Fisher Price Kickin and Bobbin Gym.I fell in love right away by just looking at the picture.I told my hubby if there's a stock available then well buy it for him.Afterwards,we then go to a mall and luckily there's one stock left.We asked the sales lady to try it and when baby Sky saw it,he was amazed and smiling and kept his foot kicking.Its as if he's telling us " Mom,dad pls buy it for me".We were so delighted looking at him,knowing that he liked the toy also.It was kinda expensive (P3,995) but because we know deep in our hearts it will make him happy,then without no doubts we bought it.i'll just loosened on my personal expenses instead :-)

Now baby Sky's is very happy and having fun with his new toy.

Last night,my hubby and i watch the news together with our 6 month old baby when the news broke out that one of the deadliest disease ages from o-5 years old is PNEUMONIA.It makes me sad because i have a 6 month old baby.Right after the news,i asked my hubby what really Pneumonia is, the signs and symptoms and the causes.I asked him because he's in the medical field and i know gladly ha has bits and infos regarding that disease.This is what he says:

PNEUMONIA is an inflammatory of the lungs caused by the bacteria,viruses or fungi.

In order for the doctor to diagnosed if it is PNEUMONIA,the patient will under go general examination and chest x-ray.If then positive with Pneumonia,the patient will be given antibiotics,advised proper rest,give plenty of fluids,medication and hospitalization.Babies are so fragile that we have to take them extra care.In order for the baby not to have it,baby should be prevented by avoiding contact with people who have colds or suffering from lung or respiratory infection.Babies should be away from people who are suffering from chickenpox or measles that may develop pneumonia.

Mothers are advised to bring their babies to their Pediatrician for their vaccines.My baby was injected PNEUMOCOCCAL POLYSACCHARIDE VACCINE.It was kinda expensive ( P 3,500 ) but its not the amount that counts but the safety and the health of the baby that's important.One thing we mothers should do is we should be very sensitive and watchful to our babies.Not only to our babies but to our surrounding's.We have to make sure that the house,the food,the toys and everything that the baby are using are clean and safe.
