Q:

My malishwali is insisting on making my baby boy drink urine and press chest area..!! Should I allow her ?



Drink urine???? No ways Urvi.. you cant give anything to your baby except breast milk till 6 months

Urvi please change your malishwali immediately. Where do you stay? Pl do not listen to her and keep your child under your supervision at ALL times! She shouldn’t be doing this to your child at all. Pl do not leave ur child alone with her

Hey Urvi... Don't listen to all such things.. change maalish wali.. don't even let her try any such things.. plz take care of your baby...

Dear Urvi pls find a new maalishwali. Dont even give water before baby completes 6 mnths. And pls dont let anyone press ur baby's chest or any body part for that matter. I m very serious. Pls tc.

Thanks all for the prompt reply...I told her no to do all these as doc has said no..:)

N wat about putting oil in frontal part of skull ( in marathi they say tadu bharna) ..is that ok?

applying coconut oil to the hair before bathing is fine. However; refrain from doing the things which she is suggesting you and replace her asap as everyone suggested.
Here is a list from my learning and doctor's suggestions:
1) avoid pressing of nipple area around chest
2) exclusive breastmilk or formula feed only till first 6 months
3) avoid putting oil in the ear
4) avoid applying kajal in the eyes
5) avoid rigorous exercising of baby's hands and legs
6) avoid giving honey to the baby

Thanks Dipti Khopkar; fr the elaborative list
