3 Top Tips to Protect Children from Karachi’s Air Pollution

Karachi is a big and fast developing country, which means we have more vehicles each day on the road therefore we have more air pollution.

Why Worry For Kids?
1. Children take in more air (pollution) when they breathe as compared to adults.

2. Children’s lungs are developing. They are more prone to lungs diseases because of pollutants.

3. Children play outdoor for longer periods.

4. Children breathe faster and more deeply when they are active. This allows pollution to reach more sensitive areas of the lungs.

Tips to protect children:-
1. In the car always keep the windows closed and turn on the Air conditioner. The AC works like a filter it collects the air from the inside and throws it out. And avoid traveling during rush hours with children that’s when the pollution levels are highest.

2. Limit outdoor play time especially during the evening. Morning activities are best but since it’s not possible with school going kids, evening play should start after 5:30.

3. Develop a habit of drinking lots of water. Water flushes down all the toxins and pollutants. And especially when coming home from outside.


5 Tips to Find the Best Pediatrician in Karachi

No matter how healthy your child is and despite the fact that you take really good care of your baby a doctor’s visit is must. Apart from vaccinations, there are sudden onsets of fever, viral flu, diarrhea or just any parental concern. Our helper then is a doctor. But finding a promising doctor can be quite a headache in a big city like Karachi.

Where sometimes doctors associated with very big and prestigious hospitals are just average and other times parents are willing to take their children in very remote areas of the city just because they heard from some relative that this doctor is blessed with healing powers.

So here are my 5 tips that will help you as a parent to find the best pediatrician in Karachi for your child:-

1. Which hospital is the doctor working for?
Usually well established and recognized hospitals have good doctors.

2. A middle aged doctor has an edge.
Not too young, since his experience will be less and not too old they have too much experience and usually don’t pay much attention to what you are saying.
My experience with middle aged pediatricians has been pretty good so far; they pay attention and are friendly towards children.

3. Look for a doctor in the vicinity.
We all know traveling far distance in Karachi is quite a hassle and nobody wants to be stuck in traffic with a sick child.
Usually every area has a good doctor you just need to find him.

4. A good doctor will not give too many medicines.
Before the age of 5 a child’s immunity is developing by leaps and bounds and we all know too many medicines compromise the immune system. Therefore it’s best to let the body do its work, until it’s a life threatening condition or a situation where medicines are unavoidable.

5. Listen to your parental instincts.
Under any circumstances don’t come under pressure. Always go with a doctor with whom you feel comfortable and not because of his big name or some relatives gave you assurances. It’s your child and the decision is yours. Even the most popular and known as best pediatrician often don’t get along with parents, and parents don’t completely understand the doctors diagnosis.
