JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - Spending time taking care of babies is physically and mentally draining. That is why it is natural that parents need a refresher, and one of the easiest solutions is to go to the mall. If you can not entrust the child to a babysitter, parents have no choice but bring their babies to the mall.

Some parents want to take their babies outside their homes for a walk, even if the babies are only a few months old.

Pediatrician Ariani Dewi Widodo reminds parents not to force themselves to take their babies to  places full of people, and this is especially for babies.

"A lot of germs in the outside world, do not let the baby get exposed to the outside world for too long," she said, as quoted from Antara.

When the baby's body immune system is not yet strong, the baby is vulnerable to diseases due to germs in the outside world. Flu, cough, runny nose and diarrhea are some common diseases that babies can suffer from when they have low immunity.

Similarly, enclosed space where air circulation is limited, such as aircraft, also has the same affect. Ariani added that parents should not forget to give vaccinations to the baby to be protected from the invasion of various diseases in the outside world.
