Q.

Fan Heater/ Entress-Drupells

Hi Doc,

My LO is 8 days old today and we recently bought a fan heater to warm up the room. Is this acceptable for the LO?

Also this is our first baby and we''ve been getting lot of advices from family and friends about a range of issues. Some of them is to give the LO entress-drupells which we bought but dont really know how to use it and what for, please help.

Thanks,

Do not give your baby any 'druppels' or any other medicines as this is not necessary. A fan heater is not ideal as it blows the air around the room often stirring up any dust that may be present. Rather use one of the electric oil filled heaters which gives a nice even heat.
