With the joy and excitement that come with the birth of your baby, it is important to know that they will be at some point they may fall ill and would require you to figure out exactly what may be wrong with her health.

Babies immune systems are way softer compared to that of adults and as such they are more likely to fall ill from time to time while they grow up. It is important for parents to know what kinds of illness their little one is most likely to encounter after birth.

Here is a list of the 5 most common illnesses that new born babies most likely face.

1) Jaundice: This is a very common illness of new born babies and it usually is noticed within few days after birth. Many babies have high  bilirubin  levels due to the fact that their organs are still very tender and as such, their liver is not yet able to handle everything that goes through it.

This is an illness that can cause some damages but usually goes away with time if properly treated. Ensure that your child gets checked and treated by a qualified physician.

2) Common Cold: This is another illness that almost all new born babies encounter. They are more prone to cold during winter periods or monsoon periods. As a parent, ensure to keep your baby warm always during the cold seasons.

4) Vomiting:  Vomiting is a normal occurrence among infants , it is common for babies to spit out during and after breastfeeding, but when your baby starts vomiting more frequent than expected,  then you should be worried.

To prevent frequent vomiting by your baby, you need to find out if your baby is allergic to breast milk. You also need to burp your baby frequently to prevent her from trowing up her entire meal after breastfeeding.

If your child keeps vomiting and losing weight, then you need to get her checked by a physician.

An amazing teacher wrote "invite me to your Havard graduation" see what happened after 20 years..

Friday, June 08, 2018
The young shall grow. It's so beautiful to do whatever we are doing with passion. Some  20 years ago, one 6th-grade teacher wrote in an intelligent pupil's report booklet, "invite me to your Harvard graduation!"
Would you believe that twenty years later, just as the teacher wrote,her prophecy came to pass. The student truly graduated from Harvard and threw a beautiful  surprise at her teacher by visiting her in class to invite her to her graduation. 

That pupil is Christin Gilmer, she  graduated from Harvard as a doctor of public health, she went back to her school and gave a pleasant surprise to her teacher who was teaching in a class. You know the most striking thing? This teacher saw Christin and was able to recognize her, she was in shock, so much so that she had goose bumps all over her body.

It's good to be good. It pays off a great deal. She was a teacher with a difference. We long to see more people like Christin's these days. 

Be your own boss.
