As children go back to school, they become exposed to new viruses and
bring them home to share with the family. If you have an infant in the
house, there's a good possibility that you'll be caring for a
sick baby at least once during the upcoming cold and flu season.
Sometimes it's hard to know when a baby is sick. Your baby might
have a low-grade fever, but when she can't talk, there's no way
for her to tell if her throat hurts or her ears ache. With the H1N1
"swine flu" virus looming on the horizon, it's especially
important for parents to know that they CAN communicate with their baby
when it comes to health issues.
We encourage you to start now to each these simple signs that will help
* tell you if he's feeling (HOT, COLD, SICK) * tell you where
he's feeling pain (HURT) * know what to expect during a visit to
the doctor (HELP, DOCTOR, MEDICINE) * understand when pain will end
when getting an immunization (ALL DONE) * communicate about
health-promoting activities (WASH)
