Question: My baby is 40 days old..can we comb the baby's hair with soft brush as elder ppl r saying not to comb till 6 months
Answer: Yes dear with a soft brush u can comb his hair. Some of the tips for infant’s faster hair growth include detangling curls, applying oil on dry scalp, using baby shampoos, applying homemade conditioners, applying aloe vera, gelatin and hair cuts from time to time, etc. Babies may be born with a head full of thick hair or just a few scraggly strands, but within the first six months, this hair falls out. Newborn hair loss is perfectly normal. In its place, new hair grows which may have a completely different texture and color. 11 Tips to Make Baby’s Hair Grow Faster 1. Detangle the curls 2. Baby shampoo Your baby probably doesn’t play much around in the dirt too often, yet. But it is important to maintain a clean scalp, nonetheless, to encourage good hair growth. So shampoo your infant’s hair once a week. 3. Homemade conditioning Conditioning is not completely necessary, but if your baby’s hair is dry or very curly, or if the weather is affecting the texture of his hair, you can try some homemade conditioners to give it an extra shine. Conditioning also makes your work easier on the detangling front. 4. Aloe vera Aloe vera is very good for skin and hair and if you can pot an aloe vera plant in your garden or terrace, you will be able to use this pure aloe vera juice for your infant’s hair care. How to use Aloe Vera for infant hair growth: To use aloe vera juice, scoop out the fleshy insides of the aloe vera leaves and blend it with distilled water. You will get a thick juice. Wash your infant’s hair with this at the end of his bath. 5 Eating healthy Healthy eating leads to healthy hair, no matter what your age. So make sure your baby eats plenty of healthy proteins like salmon, eggs and spinach. Vitamin D is also required for healthy hair, so baby walnuts, sweet potatoes, almonds, carrots, apricots and pumpkin should all find a way into your baby’s regular diet. If your infant still eats semi solid food, you can make cook these ingredients- mix and match to enhance flavor- season with a little bit of salt and make a paste. 6. Oil for dry scalp Sometimes the problem lies in the scalp, instead of the hair. Dry, itchy scalp can lead to vigorous scratching on the kid’s part which leads to hair loss. Check your infant’s scalp regularly for dryness or any other abnormal texture. If your little one has dry scalp, try oil massages every alternate day.

Question: Every day do we need to feel baby movements compulsorily
Answer: Hello dear. For now it is not important. It becomes important once you enter 28th week as then even your gynae would tell you to count the movement. Hope it helps.
