WE WELCOME YOUR CONTRIBUTION
The baby kit provides the basic needs for infants which can be life saving, When newborns are delivered, the health posts do not have the resources to provide a blanket for the baby. Sometimes, babies are wrapped in blankets too thick causing them to sweat. This can be lead to dehydration when the temperature is extremely warm. Without a blanket a baby can suffer from hypothermia. Another essential baby item is the baby thermometer because the body temperature is a sign of infection or virus and caretakers need to know when they should take their baby for medical attention.
