Hello Fakih, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Here are some ways to hold a baby based on age
0-3 months of age, cradling with your baby on your back with one hand tucked under your head and the other under your body for support
Age 3- 6 months, at this age the baby is able to sit on the lap and does not want to be lying down, so the position of holding the baby in a sitting position facing forward is usually the most preferred by babies of this age.
Over 6 months of age, the bones and muscles of the baby are strong and no longer fragile, so they can be carried in many positions
Immunization is an action to prevent the spread of disease by inserting weakened germs so that the child's immune system is formed, and the child's immune system is formed so that the child is affected by certain diseases. The DPT vaccine is a vaccine to prevent diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus. A mild cold cough is a symptom that is not a contraindication to immunization, a cold cough can be immunized as long as there is no high fever. It is your child who decides whether your child is allowed to immunize or not, based on the condition of your child at the time of examination.
Some suggestions for you
At 3 months, children may be carried often but occasionally they need to be allowed to express themselves without being carried in order to explore their environment
Perform immunization according to schedule
Give exclusive breastfeeding so that her immune system is stronger
Avoid giving additional food other than breast milk to your child before the age of 6 months
Continue to monitor the development and growth of your child by diligently taking him to the nearest posyandu.
