Sleeping time Babies, during the day

Infant’s Naptime

Sleeping time Babies, On the off chance that your infant isn’t snoozing admirably during her initial not many long stretches of life, you might need to attempt to decrease the time she is wakeful by 15-minute augmentations. In the event that she is getting overstimulated, at that point she will battle rest and be hard to get the opportunity to rest. The best approach to counteract this is to watch her “drowsy” signals to ensure that you put her down when she is starting to get tired.

A few guardians accept that giving their kid a chance to cry will hurt the person in question. Fifteen or twenty minutes of crying won’t hurt your kid physically or rationally. Children will figure out how to self-alleviate and nod off without anyone else, yet just in the event that you let her. It is significant that infants figure out how to nod off without anyone else so they can self-alleviate on the off chance that they alert in the night. Else, you may have a youngster that won’t stay asleep for the entire evening for a considerable length of time.

Standard rest designs are intermeshed with normal eating designs, so let us take a gander at the phases of a child’s life:

* Newborn: Your infant will rest somewhere in the range of 16 to 20 hours every day, including the snoozes that he takes between feedings. At the point when your child has been bolstered, given him a chance to remain wakeful for a brief span and afterward put him down before he becomes overstimulated.

* Two months: At two months and more seasoned, your kid ought to be permitted to attempt to self-mitigate during their naptimes and sleep time. Crying is ordinary when you put your infant down, however it is alright. On the off chance that he weeps for longer than 10-15 minutes, at that point go in and beware of him. Try not to get him up, yet pat his base or delicately rub his back until he quiets down.

* 3-6 months: At around 3-6 months, your infant will quit taking one of his snoozes. For the most part, it is the third snooze or late evening rest that they don’t require to such an extent. He might be somewhat fastidious and might need to take a little snooze, yet you have to attempt to keep him up on the off chance that you need him to hit the sack at a good time and rest adequately as the night progressed.

* 16+ months: When your youngster is between 16-20 months, they typically quit taking the morning rest for a more drawn out snooze in the evenings. Infants this age for the most part rest between 10-12 hours every night and take a 2-3 hour evening rest.

Standard procedures about Naps

1. You choose when the rest starts and finishes, not the child.

2. At the point when your infant is more established than 4 months old, she will wake up crying on the off chance that she hasn’t rested enough. She may have a filthy diaper, be in a place that isn’t happy, or cold/hot. Fix the issue and urge her to return to rest. Infants that have enough rest wake up glad, talking, and feeling great.

Fit Room

Welcome and congratulations on taking charge of your health. I salute you!

Your transformation has just begun. I am proud and excited for you!?


1. Long are the days when people would work out at the gym or do home exercises blindly without a program or plan to guide their eating and fitness habits and address underlying reasons why with some people, weight loss is difficult, for example, SLOW METABOLISM. Ever seen people who eat so much but hardly gain weight and others who eat little or moderate but gain weight too quickly? That’s differences in metabolism. You can spend so much money and time trying to lose weight but never reach anywhere without a metabolism boost like what is offered by our program.

2. Another BIG REASON is that you are not cleansing. Important fact is: Without GETTING RID OF ACCUMULATED WASTES AND TOXINS from your body, the likelihood of you reaching your ultimate weight loss goals and maintaining, is so low. WHY? THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS:- With the accumulated wastes and toxins stored in our bodies, we embark on losing weight. We lose some kgs and our frame reduces but toxins remain, increasing toxic density resulting in rebounding as toxic overload triggers the body’s need to create fat. Weight is therefore regained but after cleansing like you will with our program, the weight is kept off as illustrated below.

3. Do you have a BIG APPETITE or you’ve got CRAVINGS you can’t control? program does not ignore that we all have our cravings and might be unable to say “no” to the urges of eating the wrong food. It is for this reason that the program has incorporated the Garcinia Cambogia fruit in soft gel form to help suppress too much appetite naturally and keep cravings under control.

4. Do you wonder about the SAGGING SKIN after losing weight? did you at one point LOSE WEIGHT then it all CAME BACK AGAIN? This is why:-As you do exercises, fat is burnt, right? What replaces it? If nothing does, you are susceptible to weight gain. But if you have adequate, quality protein that is readily available to cells like is the case in this program, as you lose fat, since protein is the building block of tissue including muscle, when you work out, the protein helps the body build lean muscle to replace fat being lost and maintains the existing muscle tissue. So you find that your tummy or body is toned and locked in with lean muscle as you lose the fat and thus you can easily keep off the weight without sagging skin.

You will also notice that with our program you start by losing mostly tummy fat, love handles mostly on ladies and arm fat before anything else. These are the first to go! So you lose weight proportionally and can maintain it long after the fit program is over. Isn’t that FANTASTIC ?!

Now you must be asking. WHERE DO I START?! HERE YOU GO! ???

Healthy living room temperature

The best room temperature for your living room

maybe you are confused looking for reference articles about room temperature, here I will give a little experience about various room temperatures that I have felt while in Indonesia.

Sometimes you spend a lot of time in your living room wearing everyday clothes or pajamas to watch TV at night. Most people find ideal temperatures in living rooms between 19 and 22 degrees. Others believe that ‘the warmer is better’, of course, given that each level will also be seen on the bill. It’s best not to heat it to more than 20 or 21 degrees.

preheat your living room with a designer radiator. Not only are they powerful and efficient, they also add aesthetic value to your interior.

Your bathroom air conditioner optimally.

A cold bathroom is the worst nightmare for everyone. The ideal temperature during use is around 23 degrees, the best temperature is achieved by underfloor heating combined with a practical towel radiator.

The bedroom could be a bit cooler.

We went from the hottest room to the coolest room: the bedroom. You will actually enjoy the best night’s rest if the temperature is not higher than 20 degrees. Thermometers can even be as low as 15 or 16 degrees.

What if you are not home?

The ideal room temperature when you are not at home depends on how long you will be gone.

What is the Best and Healthy Room Temperature for Your Family?

During the day, while you are working and school children, heating must be rested, so that the temperature drops no more than a few degrees.

If you travel for several weeks and turn off heating completely, the temperature will drop dramatically. It can cause problems with moisture. During your absence, it is better to set the thermostat to a moderate temperature, such as 14 degrees.

So set the thermostat to a certain minimum temperature during your vacation. The day before you return, you can gradually increase the temperature of the room again with the help of a digital thermostat.

How to make love with sensitive people

Making love Sensitive People

People who are sensitive feelings are often described as people who are very sensitive to various things around them. They quickly recognize and feel even the most subtle changes in their environment, and are more easily overwhelmed when in a very crowded environment. As a result, these characteristics may not help make their partners confused to maintain their attitudes, words, and actions around the person. Including also when in bed.

False words or movements are feared to make a couple’s mood go down and are reluctant to have sex. Then, is there anything you can or shouldn’t do when having sex with someone who has sensitive feelings?

Making love with sensitive people

In 1996, Dr. Elaine Aron, a psychologist from the United States and author of The Highly Sensitive Person, has examined how sensitive people perceive intimate relationships and sexuality.

Dr. Aron wants to find out how different the meaning of sex is and what problems sensitive people face when having sex when compared to other people in general. Overall the results of the study did not differ greatly.

Sensitive people also have the same sexual interests and desires as ordinary people. However, the need for sex and the response of sensitive people to stimuli is slightly different.

People who are sensitive feelings need more comfort and peace during sex to be able to enjoy more activities in bed. Because, sensitive people generally tend to be easily stressed, easily distracted, and easily feel uncomfortable when there are small disturbances around them.

So, there are tips and ways to be able to enjoy sexual relations with sensitive people without fear of making mistakes and end up making it emotional.

Ask and compromise the limits during sex.

To avoid wrong action and say during sex, you and your partner who have sensitive feelings should talk about the limits and rules when in bed.

For example, your partner does not like to talk about sex that is too vulgar or too rough. You can look for other alternatives by discussing this with your partner. Explain what your partner can receive and what is not.

You can also explain that a partner may protest if there are words or stimuli that are at risk of hurting him.

Having sex with love.

According to Dr. Elaine Aron, a sensitive person wants to have intimate relationships full of love and affection. This is because making love for them does not merely satisfy the desires and reach a climax.

Having sex with sensitive people is a personal thing that is full of sacredness. Sensitive people almost always “pour” all their energy and emotions during sex. Most sensitive people are reluctant to make love for free without affection.

So, for those of you who have sensitive feelings, treat them with love and affection.

It is not recommended to have sex too harshly.

Dr. Elaine Aron further explained that most sensitive people would find it difficult to return to their original activities after sex.

Maybe they tend to re-imagine which parts they don’t like and disturb when having sex. There is a possibility this is a response to explore the intimate relationship that has just been done.

The reason, some sensitive people report that they are reluctant to complain, reject, or even protest for fear of disturbing your enjoyment while making love.

In addition, people with sensitive feelings tend to be less resistant to pain than ordinary people. Therefore, as much as possible not to overdo stimulation, because this can hurt their bodies.

Avoid having sex with style while hitting, grabbing, or BDSM style.

If you want to do excessive movement or stimulation, try permission first and encourage interruptions when they feel uncomfortable between sex.

Condition the place to make love away from any disturbances.

Dr. Aron also explained that sensitive people can be disturbed by sounds, smells, or other things around them. For a smooth sex session, first make sure that the place for tonight’s love affair is free from distractions.

Anticipate disturbances such as odors by first cleaning the bed and room. Then, adjust the lighting as dimly as possible and have sex when everyone is asleep. This is all to avoid couples who have uncomfortable feeling sensitive so that sex is not optimal.

Definition of cervical cancer, Complete

What is cervical cancer

Cervical cancer is cancer that occurs when there are cells in the cervix aka the cervix that are not normal, and continues to grow uncontrollably.

Abnormal cells can develop quickly, resulting in tumors in the cervix. A malignant tumor will later develop into a cause of cervical cancer.

The cervix itself is an organ that is shaped like a cylindrical tube. Its function is to connect the vagina with the uterus.

This cancer is one of the most common cancers in women throughout the world. However, routine pap smear tests can help detect cervical cancer early.

Cervical cancer can often be cured if found early. Also, there are several methods to control the risk of cervical cancer, which makes the number of cervical cancer cases decreased.

How common is cervical cancer

Cervical cancer is very common throughout the world. According to records of the World Health Organization or WHO, cervical cancer is the fourth most common type of cancer in women. Furthermore, the WHO also observed that the incidence of cervical cancer is greater in developing countries than in developed countries.

In Indonesia, the Ministry of Health even notes that cervical cancer is ranked second for the type of cancer most commonly found after breast cancer. Every year, there are around 40,000 new cases of cervical cancer that are detected in Indonesian women.

This condition can occur in patients of any age. However, as we age, the risk of someone developing cervical cancer is greater.

Cervical cancer can be treated by reducing risk factors. Discuss it with your doctor for more information.

Signs & symptoms

In the initial stages, women with early and pre-cancerous cervical cancer will experience no symptoms. The reason is, cervical cancer does not show symptoms until the tumor is formed. The tumor can then push the surrounding organs and disrupt healthy cells. Symptoms of cervical cancer can be characterized by the following characteristics.

  • Unusual bleeding from the vagina. For example, bleeding when you are not menstruating, longer periods, bleeding after or during sex, after menopause, after bowel movements, or after the pelvic examination.
  • Menstrual cycles become irregular.
  • Pain in the pelvis (in the lower abdomen).
  • Pain during sex or sex.
  • Pain in the waist (lower back) or legs.
  • Limp body and easily tired.
  • Decreased weight when not on a diet.
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Abnormal vaginal fluids, such as strong odor or with blood.
  • One foot swelled up.

There are several other conditions, such as infection, which can cause various characteristics of cervical cancer. However, whatever the cause, you still have to visit a doctor to see it. Ignoring the possibility of cervical cancer symptoms will only make the condition worse and lose the opportunity for effective treatment.

Better yet, don’t wait until cervical cancer symptoms appear. The best way to treat your genitals is to have a pap smear test and regular pelvic examination to the obstetrician.

There may be signs and symptoms of cervical cancer not mentioned above. If you have a concern about a specific symptom, consult your doctor.

When to see a doctor

If you show some of the signs or symptoms of cervical cancer above or other questions, consult your doctor. Each person’s body is different. Always consult a doctor to deal with your health condition and check yourself for any signs of cervical cancer.

However, all women (especially those who are married or sexually active) should see a doctor to get tested and get an HPV vaccine. There is no need to wait for new cervical cancer symptoms to seek medical help.

Women over the age of 40 are also advised to see a doctor and have regular pap smears. The reason is, the more you age the more vulnerable you are to this cancer. While you might not feel the various symptoms of cervical cancer that have begun to attack.

What causes cervical cancer

Almost all cases of cervical cancer are caused by human papillomavirus or abbreviated as HPV. There are more than one hundred types of HPV, but so far there are only about 13 types of viruses that can cause cervical cancer. This virus is often transmitted through sexual contact.

In a woman’s body, this virus produces two types of proteins, namely E6 and E7. Both of these proteins are dangerous because they can deactivate certain genes in a woman’s body that play a role in stopping tumor development.

Both of these proteins also trigger the aggressive growth of uterine wall cells. This unnatural cell growth eventually causes gene changes (also known as gene mutations). This gene mutation which then becomes the cause of cervical cancer develops in the body.

Some types of HPV do not cause symptoms at all. However, some types can cause genital warts, and some can cause cervical cancer. Only doctors can diagnose and determine how dangerous the type of HPV you are experiencing.

Two strains of the HPV virus (HPV 16 and HPV 18) are known to play a role in 70% of cervical cancer cases. This type of HPV infection does not cause any symptoms, so many women do not realize they have an infection. Most adult women actually “host” HPV at some point in their lives.

HPV can be easily found through a pap smear test. This is why a pap smear test is very important to prevent cervical cancer. Pap smear tests can detect differences in cervical cells before they turn into cancer. If you handle these cell changes, you can protect yourself from cervical cancer.

Risk factors

So far, HPV is known to be the main cause of cervical cancer. However, several risk factors can increase your chances of getting this cancer, even if you don’t have a history of HPV infection. Consider the following risk factors for cervical cancer.

  • Human papillomavirus infection. Having sex with multiple partners can increase your risk of getting HPV 16 and 18. Likewise, risky sexual behavior such as unprotected sex or sharing the same sex toys. Also, women who have never gotten a vaccine (immunization) of HPV are certainly more susceptible to being infected with HPV which could be the cause of cervical cancer.
  • Smoke. Tobacco contains many chemicals that are not good for the body. Women who smoke have a risk of up to two times greater than non-smokers in women affected by cervical cancer.
    Immunosuppression. Medications or conditions that affect the immune system, such as the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus that causes AIDS, can increase the risk of HPV infection and cause cervical cancer.
  • Chlamydia infection. Several studies have shown a higher risk of cervical cancer in women with blood test results that indicate ever or being infected with one of the sexually transmitted diseases, namely chlamydia.
  • Lack of consumption of fruits and vegetables. Women who have unhealthy eating patterns, for example rarely eat fruits and vegetables, may have a higher risk of cervical cancer.
    Overweight (obesity). Women who are overweight are more prone to have adenocarcinoma of the cervix.
  • Long-term use of oral contraceptives (birth control pills). Several studies have shown that taking oral contraceptives (birth control pills) for a long time, which is more than about five years, can increase the risk of cervical cancer. If you have taken birth control pills for a long time to prevent pregnancy, immediately consider choosing another contraceptive and discuss with your obstetrician. Recent studies have found that women who use intrauterine devices (IUDs, devices inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy) have a lower risk of cancer.
  • Therefore, an IUD type of contraception can be an alternative for those of you who don’t want to get pregnant.
  • Several times already pregnant and giving birth. Women who have been pregnant until giving birth (not miscarriage) 3 times or more have a higher risk of cervical cancer.
  • Pregnant or give birth at a very young age. Very young means under 17 years of age from pregnancy to giving birth for the first time. Women who are younger than 17 years of age during the first pregnancy (not miscarriage) are twice as susceptible to cervical cancer.
  • Poverty. Although a person’s economic situation does not necessarily cause cervical cancer, poverty is very likely to hinder women’s access to services and adequate health education, including pap smears.
  • Diethylstilbestrol (DES). DES is a hormonal drug given to women to prevent miscarriage. Mothers who use this drug during pregnancy have a greater risk of cervical cancer. Girls who are born also have a greater risk. This drug has not been prescribed for pregnant women since the 1980s.
  • However, those of you who have been pregnant or were born before 1980 are still at risk of developing cancer.
  • Heredity. If in your family, such as a grandmother, mother, or female cousin who has had cervical cancer, you are two to two times more susceptible to cervical cancer than people who have no inherited cancer. The problem is gene mutations that cause cervical cancer can be passed down to the next generation.
  • Age. Women under the age of fifteen have the lowest risk of this cancer. While the risk is increasing in women aged over 40 years.

Quick Ways to Reduce Child Fever

Fever is one condition that is often experienced by children. In healthy children, fever is usually not a serious problem. Fever is a sign that the body is trying to fight an infection that wants to attack a child. Not all fever should be treated by a doctor, sometimes you can treat a child’s fever with just home remedies. However, high fever makes children uncomfortable and can cause severe dehydration in children.

What can be done to overcome a child’s fever?

A child is said to have a fever if his body temperature reaches 37 ° C or more. Usually, the child’s body temperature rises and falls during a fever, lower in the morning and higher at night. Sometimes, even children shiver at night because body temperature starts to rise. This makes the child unable to sleep well at night. This is usually what makes mothers worry.

Relax, when a child has a fever, you as a parent can take the first action to reduce child fever. You can do this at home before you decide to take it to the doctor. Some fever can heal only with home care, no need to take it to the doctor.

several ways to reduce childhood fever

Compress with warm water.

Compressing children with warm water may be a way parents often do to help reduce childhood fever. This is a method that has been practiced for generations. This method can only reduce child fever temporarily, it may even not altogether be able to reduce fever in some children. Some children may also be uncomfortable with compresses on their foreheads. However, you can still do this to reduce child fever.

Take a warm bath.

Even though the child is having a fever, the child must still take a bath or just on a lap. Warm water baths (29.4-32.2 ° C) are considered to help treat childhood fever. Warm water that affects the child’s skin when taking a bath will help cool the body and make the child’s body temperature slightly decreased (1-2 ° C for 30-45 minutes). If you use cold water for children to bathe, this can make children shiver and make the child’s body temperature rise to tolerate the cold felt by the child.

Help your child’s body heat out quickly.

This can be done by wearing clothes to the child that covers his entire body. Do not have to wear thick clothes, enough with clothes that are rather thin but closed, and blanket the child. Clothing that is too thick can prevent the child’s body heat from coming out so that children’s fever can be higher. Thinner clothes can help heat out the body more easily.

Apart from clothing, you can also help remove a child’s body heat by making the temperature of the child’s room as comfortable as possible for the child, so that the child is not cold or hot. Let the child get enough rest time to be able to recover his body condition, but this does not need to be done in a day’s way in bed.

Drink plenty of water.

There is no need to direct much in one drink, a little bit more often is better done. This method can help the body to get rid of the heat in the body more quickly. Drinking lots of water can also prevent children from dehydration (lack of fluids in the body) because fever causes children to lose a lot of fluids than usual. In addition to drinking water, children can also get liquids from other foods or drinks, such as soup, ice cream, and so on. In addition to preventing dehydration, ice cream or other cold drinks are also able to help cool the child’s body from the inside, thus helping to overcome a child’s fever.

For fluid loss in children not to get worse, you should avoid children from drinks that contain caffeine, such as tea, coffee, and soft drinks. This drink can make children urinate more often.

Eat a lot.

The body needs more nutritional intake during a fever. So that a lot of food intake can help a child’s fever heal faster. The higher the child’s fever, the greater the child’s nutritional needs.

Let the child eat various foods that he likes. In essence, so that children have the appetite to eat. Usually, the child’s appetite decreases when he has a fever, and this is precisely what can slow the child’s recovery. Offer children a variety of foods, but don’t force children if they don’t want to eat them. If he is hungry, surely he will look for food.

Drink herbal tea.

Drinking herbal teas, such as ginger tea, chamomile, yarrow, elderflower, and lemon balm herbal tea, is believed to overcome childhood and adult fever. This drink is believed to provide a calming effect and can also trigger the body to sweat. Expending this sweat can then help lower body temperature during a fever. You can add honey as a sweetener if you want.

Sleep disorders are common in children and adolescents, Complete

Sleep is a time for the body to rest. Unfortunately, sleep disorders often attack and make the quality of sleep decrease. Not only the elderly, sleep disorders can also occur in children and adolescents. What are the most common sleep disorders? Consider the following review.

Entering school age and adolescence, the time for child sleep is reduced. Not infrequently, sleep time during the day must be sacrificed because of the many activities.

Following tutoring or various activities at school are several reasons. Not to mention, the habit of playing gadgets before going to bed also often makes them forget the time to sleep late at night.

Not only external factors, some sleep disorders from within can also reduce sleep time. According to the Cleveland Clinic report, nearly 30% of sleep disorders occur in children and adolescents.

Everyone must have had a nightmare. This is normal. However, if it often happens, sleep can be disrupted because dreams can wake the child in the middle of the night.

Frequent nightmares are usually triggered by emotional problems, such as stress and anxiety. Lack of sleep can also cause nightmares.

Also, children often experience walking sleep aka sleep while walking. Although generally not a serious problem, sleep disorders in children can indicate that the child feels stressed.


Insomnia is a common cause of poor quality sleep. This condition causes a person to have difficulty starting to sleep, having trouble sleeping again when they wake up or getting up earlier than they should.

Sleep disturbances in children occur because of many things, including:

  • Sick

When a child is sick, such as a cold, flu, or cough, the symptoms will worsen at night. Also, reflux of stomach acid and GERD can cause insomnia because the lying position allows stomach acid to rise into the esophagus.

  • Having emotional problems

Children and adolescents who have family problems, such as parental divorce or domestic violence are more prone to experiencing insomnia.

  • Uncomfortable environment

Sleep requires comfort if not, you can have trouble sleeping until insomnia. Rooms that are too hot, cold, bright, or noisy can be one reason.

3. Sleep apnea

Sleep apnea can occur in children who are overweight or obese. This condition causes the child to stop breathing for a moment while sleeping.

The cause is enlargement of the tonsils or adenoids (tissue that connects the nose to the throat).

Sleep disturbances in children and adolescents make them often snore, sweat, and wake up in a state of shock. They will also be more easily drowsy during the day due to a lack of sleep.

4. PLMD or RLS

PLMD (Periodic limb movement disorder) is also called a periodic limb movement disorder. Sleep disturbances in children and adolescents make them make movements in the form of unintentional jerks.

This condition makes them tired and easily wake up during sleep.

In addition to PLMD, there is also RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome) which causes a sensation of tingling, cramping, itching, or heat in the legs.

To eliminate this sensation, children with this condition will move their legs or hands. These conditions certainly interfere with sleep because it makes someone uncomfortable.

What should parents do?

This sleep disorder must have happened to your baby. Especially, nightmares, sleepwalking, and insomnia. If occasional and not other alarming symptoms occur, this may not be a problem.

Conversely, if sleep disorders in children and adolescents often occur, accompanied by other symptoms, consult a doctor, psychologist, or child sleep expert.

Do not delay treatment, to prevent the severity of conditions that worsen the health and quality of life of children.
