Stay up-to-date on vaccinations and limit your baby’s exposure to potential infections.
Good hand hygiene is imperative. Before letting anyone touch your child, ask them to wash their hands first.
You should not use a blanket in your child’s crib. If you’re concerned that she may be cold, dress her in a warm baby sleeper and investigate any potential cold drafts that may be in the room, particularly from windows that may leak. Your home has a lower relative humidity during the winter months and running the heat contributes to further dryness. If your baby develops eczema, consult with your pediatrician or primary care physician to determine the best course of action.
