Wow What an Imaginative Way to Raise £ for Cancer

In the News

It's great to see a story, where someone so young, he was only 8 when he decided to grow his hair to be made into wigs for poorly children.

Two years latter & despite being teased about his hair. He has had 14 inches cut off & raises over £4,000 for a cancer charity. I think this is a fantastic achievement

One of the benefit of being young, and it's lovely and curly, it must have taken ages to wash and dry 😀 Good for him for preserving, especially as the article doesn't mention why he decided to do this.

Leannexxx your recent chat was closed as I pressed send of course you can give baby water it has to be cooled boiled kettle water, it actually helps with constipation and breaking wind too

Fully breastfed babies don't need any water until they've started eating solid foods. Formula-fed babies may need some extra water in hot weather.

Leannexxx I thought you had said the baby was ten weeks old, I thought it was reasonably common knowledge that babies under six months, do not need and should not be given water. Here are the views of two EXPERTS I hope others will read it too. https://www.insider.com/can-babies-drink-water-2018-2

I hope the baby is OK but I think you should think twice before giving any more water.

Leannexxx I read all sources of information, and haven't found any that approve of or recommend babies under six months old being given water, this one explains why babies under six months should not be given water (boiled or not) it shouldn't even be necessary for it to be considered. If it is suspected a baby is dehydrated medical attention should be sought. https://www.healthline.com/health/baby/why-cant-babies-have-water#water-intoxication

There is a UK company, which is a pioneer in scalp cooling system which help prevent hair loss in certain chemotherapy drugs. I know someone who used this during treatment and didn't loose her hair 🙂
