How to Celebrate Your Child's First Diwali Safely
If this is your child's first Diwali, you are undoubtedly eager to enjoy the occasion in all its splendor, and there are many good reasons why you should. But heed our warning: Keep your newborn secure and well away from loud noises, fireworks, and a crowded environment because these are precisely the times when children are most likely to contract infections or diseases that are difficult to treat. But we're not saying you shouldn't take your child to the festival of lights. When it comes to your baby's health and wellbeing on her first Diwali, you need to take extra precautions.
Here are a few precautions you may take to ensure your child's Diwali is safe:
- To stop noise pollution, put a pair of soft earplugs in your baby's ear and cover it.
- While watching television or cracking open crackers, cover your baby's face with a cotton rag. After you finish, wash your face to prevent an infection if your child touches it.
- To stop the irritation and allergic reactions from spreading or affecting your infant, keep your nails short.
- Before you touch your baby, thoroughly wash your hands.
- A baby who is well-fed, well-rested, and dry is more likely to have fun than one who is irritable and hungry. In order to keep your baby content and joyous during the festival, feed her on schedule.
