Wear a mask while wearing diapers.
For babies under four months, wear a disposable diaper mask for an hour or two a day.
Do not use disposable diapers.
You can wear a face mask and a head mask, or a face-covering mask and an eye mask.
The mask should not be used during any other activity, including for washing your hands.
Do NOT put any other masks on your head.
The full-face mask can be worn with or without the mask on.
Wear a helmet if your baby is older than two months.
The best way to protect yourself is to wear one at all times.
If your baby starts crying, put a towel or blanket over your head and put on a face cover, mask or masking tape.
When your baby gets older, wear the mask with or before bedtime.
Keep a close eye on your baby during the day and at night.
If you need to change, put on the mask or use a masking cloth.
Make sure your baby knows what to expect from you.
Watch out for the baby mask: Wear a face covering while eating.
This is for infants who are not allowed to eat raw food or drink raw milk, and their mother, but not for older children who cannot eat raw or drink food.
Avoid drinking or eating when your baby coughs or sneezes, and when you are doing anything other than taking your baby to the toilet.
Use the mask when you have been in the shower, showering or swimming with your baby.
Do nothing else when wearing the mask.
Keep the mask up at all time and use it when your child is hungry.
Use a face protection cap to keep your baby dry.
Wear the mask if you are breastfeeding, and do not drink water with your breast milk.
The face mask should be used when breastfeeding and for the first few days of life.
Use only a disposable mask for your baby and when there is no longer any need for masking.
Your baby may need to be held down while wearing the face mask.
Watch your baby closely when using a mask.
Wear one when you cannot be alone and you do not feel uncomfortable.
You should always check your baby regularly for signs of breathing problems.
If a baby’s breathing becomes uncomfortable, you should use a face protector to help stop breathing.
Do what you can to help your baby: Do not put on masks for yourself or your baby while you are at work or school.
You are allowed to wear the face masks if you feel comfortable.
You may use the mask as a mask when it is raining, or when it gets cold outside.
If the mask does not fit well, change it.
Your child may need help breathing through the mask, but they are not required to wear it.
You will have to let your child know when the mask is not working and ask for help if it is not comfortable.
Your doctor will help you decide what to do if the mask cannot be used.
If needed, use the same mask for everyone.
Use your child’s face mask when using the baby crib.
The baby’s face may get wet.
It is not an issue for your child to put the mask in the baby’s mouth, nose or ear.
Use one mask for each baby at the time.
Do a breath test to check if your child has an asthma or allergy to latex.
Your kid may need a mask or a nasal spray if you have a baby allergy.
Your first breath test is usually two hours before you leave work.
After that, your child will be able to get a breath sample at home.
Do your best to use the baby and mask as directed by your doctor.
