NO BUM WRAP ... A UK study gives thumbs up to baby wipes . What treatment do you use?

BABY wipes are as safe and eective as cotton wool and water and can even soothe nappy rash, according to a three year study just completed by British scientists. Researchers at Manchester University tested the baby wipe against cotton wool and water on 280 babies over a three-year period. They discovered that wipes are as eective and as safe as water - but much more convenient for parents. And babies cleaned with wipes suer less nappy rash. Babies under the age one lose more moisture through their skin than older children and are more vulnerable to irritation, meaning parents have to use gentler washing techniques. However, many Australian parents are still keen to ensure they use com-

pletely chemical-free products on their babies skin, says Louise Roark, se of the Australian rm Playdays. Playdays A growing number of Australians are very serious about protecting their families from harmful synthetic toxins posing as cleansing agents, she said. We are on a mission to deliver health conscious Aussie families the healthiest, safest and most cost eective alternative. Thats because the nasty chemicals we found currently used in regular baby wipes are increasingly linked to serious and long term health eects. What do you think? How do you keep nappy rash at bay?

Baby Bona needs a Bottle!

AT RISK ... Bona is just one of just 2,000 Sumatran elephants left. Her adopted mum Amanda French gives her a hug.

ORPHANED baby elephant Bona drinks 18 litres of baby formula a day! The adorable little elephant is also one of just 2,000 of her species left in Sumatra and the focus of a hardhitting campaign to keep her alive. A Brisbane trio, made up of events manager Amanda French, 26, photographer Bruce Levick, 38, and conservation worker Murray Munro, 41, have just returned from a Sumatran adventure that saw them carting trolley-loads of baby formula and waking at 4am daily to feed the grumpy little elephant. Bona was found abandoned and starving in a palm oil plantation.

While she was taken to a government elephant camp, her carers could not provide the supplements she needed. When the group came across her story in February, they embarked on a mission to nurse the malnourished 18-month-old back to health. Here she was, on the other side of this river in Sumatra, all by herself and starving. We couldnt turn our backs, Amanda said. Having returned, the team is searching for $24,000 needed to keep her alive. If you want to help supply baby formula for Bona, donations can be made at SaveBona.com

Healthy Teeth is Easy ...

Floss Fan... It is critical to encourage the littlies to oss regularly. larly larly.

THE key to minimising the risk of developing many dental problems relies on good and frequent brushing and ossing, writes Brisbane Dental Specialist Dr Sue Taji. This holds true for everyone of all ages. As soon as your childs rst primary (baby) tooth starts erupting, usually between 3 and 9 months of age, parents should start brushing their childs tooth/ teeth twice a day. A child toothbrush with a small head and soft bristle is recommended. The use, type and amount of toothpaste required will need to be discussed for each child with their oral health care provider. Even if your child resists the toothbrushing routine, it is crucial to persevere. Once your childs primary (baby) teeth have all erupted,

ossing can be added to the daily routine. Various plastic oss holders and devices are available to make this daily process easier. M ost children do nt dev elo p sucient manual dexterity until about 8 years of age and it is highly recommended that mums and dads brush the child s teeth until that age. By all means let your child have a go rst, but then mum or dad should always supplement and nish this process. Always remember to reach back to the molar teeth. Given their position, they are often missed and hence are at a greater risk of developing cavities. Dr Sue is a Paediatric Dental Specialist with the Queensland Dental Group for Kids and now a regular contributor to KindyNews. Contact her on (07) 3839 8000.
