Baby bottles, pacifiers and sippy cups are extremely popular. Basically every baby uses them at some point. However unknown to many parents, an average of 2,270 cases each year where child was hurt while using bottles, pacifiers or sippy cups. This was based on a study of 45,398 children under age 3 between 1991 and 2010 published in the journal "Pediatrics".
In most of the cases, 86 percent of the injuries was when kids fell with the object. Bottles were involved in nearly two-thirds of the injuries, while pacifiers accounted for about a fifth and sippy cups around 14 percent. Approximately 70 percent of the accidents resulted in cuts, and about 70 percent were hurt on or near their mouths, the study found.
Contrary to what many think, these injuries aren't caused by faulty products, poisoning or choking hazards. Rather, injuries are the kind that occur when a child is moving around the home while drinking from a bottle or cup or sucking on a pacifier, shared Dr. Sarah A. Keim - the principal researcher for the center for behavioral health at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio.
So, what are some of the dangers to be aware of while using sippy cups and toddler water bottle?
So, how do we minimise these risks?
Not all milk is the same. Without doubt, breast milk is the best. Ideally, it is best to exclusively breastfeed your newborn until the baby is 6 months old. However, if you're unable to exclusively breastfeed your baby for whatever reasons, the type of formula you use matters. So, soy, goat or cow milk, which is better for your baby?
