Steps to Avoid Discoloration of Baby's Teeth

Good oral hygiene begins from the moment the tooth comes out from the baby’s gum. So proper caring for the tooth and preventing from discoloration, is a big responsibility of every parents. Though it’s normal for baby’s teeth to be discolored because of the foods that they eat but mothers should take steps to prevent that from happening. Below are some of the steps to follow.

1. Start brushing baby’s teeth at least twice a day. Use infant toothpaste and a toothbrush designed for baby's teeth, with small, soft bristles.

2. Let the baby handle or hold his own toothbrush, if he can manage to do so. Even chewing on a toothbrush can be adequate to clean the teeth for this will teach and encourage the child to brush often as the child gets older.

3. If the baby is taking medicine, brush his teeth after administering antibiotics, or vitamins. Frequent use of antibiotics or even vitamins can lead to discoloration of baby teeth because that’s what happens to my child.

4. When feeding bottles for babies remove the bottle from his mouth especially if he falls asleep. It is because bacteria can be form from the liquid which remains in the mouth and can cause discoloration of the teeth.

  1. Avoid giving to baby’s drinks with sugar content like juices or milk after brushing during the night. Remember the teeth has already been clean and therefore do not give them anymore foods to eat because it can lead to tooth decay and discoloration.
  2. Bring the baby to the dentist for check-ups as soon as the baby teeth appear.
  3. Use a small amount of toothpaste when brushing baby’s teeth and never allow them to swallow the toothpaste.
  4. Don’t allow your child to brush their teeth alone, it should be under your supervision.
  5. Never put sugar to the pacifier especially when a child is going to sleep.
  6. Don’t allow the child to chew food and stay longer in his mouth especially sweet and starchy foods.

Managing Straight and Curved Lines in Life

I hate clutters and chaos. They are disturbing and abominable for me. It irritates me whenever I heard noise and shouting. All I want is peace and order especially in the house. I love to live in an orderly and organized environment. I was very particular about everything. Then, I got married. Life was as fine as i expected it to be. Until children started coming, our abode became more topsy-turvy. There were clutters here and everywhere in the house. Toys and slippers are around the corner of the house. Appliances were destroyed. I scolded them but there is no effect, everything now now became chaotic. Until I got a bright idea. I lowered my housekeeping standards. Instead of expecting everything to be prim and proper I gave them the freedom to act their age, allowing some leverage for all the clutter that kids aged from 3 to 6. In accepting the clutter my children made, I had also given them the freedom to be themselves. I let them learn that there should be some order in the house. Young as they were, they should learn that order and organization of things inside the house is important.
Young mothers sometimes forget that children are children and they have to act their age. We push them to grow up quickly, expecting them to act as adults. We sometimes ask them to make straight lines when all they can manage to draw at the moment is a crooked lines.
Motherhood has taught me that there are more important things than an impeccably clean and orderly house. It is by giving balance and harmony of crooked and straight lines in life.

Shy Away

Shyness is an irrational fear of speaking up and afraid of being humiliated or ignored. Well, I used to be one of them. I’ve been an inwardly directed person. I prefer to process the world internally, answer my own questions and come to a conclusion before speaking up. Why some people are afraid of speaking out? The main causes maybe are oversensitivity and insecurity. When you associate speaking out with pain and makes you embarrass then you’ll have to avoid speaking up. Unfortunately, shyness is an enormous detriment to success.

For naturally quiet people, the fear of speaking can arise from a few bad experiences, especially at an early age. When an adult reacts angrily or dismissively to an attempt at self expression, it’s natural to take it personally and shy away from future expression. Even if this only happens once or twice, people tend to exaggerate these incidents until they become mental monsters. A key to overcoming shyness is recognizing these perceived slights for what they are–meaningless. When someone reacts to you negatively, don’t take it personally.

It’s also essential to let go of bad experiences. When you dwell on a bad experience, it grows into something much more frightening than reality. Don’t do this to yourself! The more you think about a bad experience the more power you give it. Don’t blame yourself.
Another important step in overcoming shyness is realizing that other people are basically the same as you. Everyone is insecure and afraid of embarrassment. Other people usually aren’t as smart as you think. If you have a question, chances are someone else is wondering about the same thing. Don’t let one or two bad experiences dictate your entire opinion of humanity.

The second cause of shyness is insecurity. If you don’t think you have anything valuable to contribute, what’s the point of risking embarrassment? To get over this you need to recognize the merit of your own thoughts and the value they present to others. To reach your potential, you need to share yourself with the world. Your brilliant insights don’t hold any value until they’ve enlightened someone else. Force yourself to speak up, especially when you don’t want to. Sit in the front of the room and make yourself visible. Understand that sharing your insights with people is doing them a favor. Once you get used to opening up, you’ll notice how positively people react. This will build your self confidence and faith in the goodwill of others.
Overcoming shyness isn’t just something you should do for yourself; it’s also part of being a contributing member of society. When you have a thought or idea that deserves to be heard, you’re not only hurting yourself by keeping quiet, you’re hurting the people around you. Other people need you. They need your intelligence and insight. They need your help to work through problems. By hiding behind shyness, you limit the help you can give to your friends, family members, and colleagues.

Don’t keep your talent inside, share it when there's an opportunity so it can grow and flourish.
Don't let shyness blocks your way to a successful life. That is why we need to develop to our kids to have self confidence so that they will not be experiencing shyness.
