A Spanish nature conservation center says that the first baby lynx has been born in the Pyrenees in nearly a century.

The Eurasian lynx is considered extinct in the Spanish and French Pyrenees, and the last time it was witnessed in these mountains was in the 1930s.

The MonNatura Pirineus center released images of the baby feline cavorting on Wednesday, two months after it was born in captivity.

The lynx’s parents were born in captivity in northwestern Spain before being brought to the center in 2008.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature says the predator has stable populations in northern Europe and Asia, though it’s endangered in parts of Europe.

Here’s the Right Way To Choose Detergent for Baby Clothes

One common dilemma that most parents face is how to ensure that the detergent they use is tough on stains and odour of soiled baby clothes piling up every hour and gentle on their baby’s skin.

Health experts suggest that as a baby’s skin is not the same as an adult’s, using the same detergent can lead to babies experiencing skin-related issues. While the residual substance left behind during laundry might not impact adults, the same can affect a baby’s sensitive skin.

“Choosing a laundry wash that has natural ingredients like neem, soapnut, lemon and geranium can be safe on babies’ skin,” Dr. Subhashini N.S., Discovery Sciences Group, R&D, The Himalaya Drug Company, said in a statement.

“These ingredients are known for their antimicrobial properties and are gentle on babies’ clothes. Soapnut further helps clean the fabric and remove stains effectively,” she said.

The detergent that we choose for baby laundry needs to be gentle and help maintain the softness of the fabric. A fresh and mild fragrance post wash would be welcome, without any detergent residue, according to the experts.

“An important aspect is to ensure that the baby laundry wash is free from harsh chemicals like phosphorous, parabens, synthetic colour, SLS/SLES/ALS (sodium lauryl sulfate/sodium laureth sulfate/ammonium lauryl sulfate), added bleach, silicates, and fluorescent. It’s better to opt for a laundry wash that is clinically tested, gentle on baby’s skin, and does not leave behind any residue,” Subhashini said.

Harsh chemicals can affect a baby’s skin, leading to allergies and rashes. If you notice any signs of irritation, rashes, or allergy on your baby’s skin, do consult a medical professional immediately, she advised. (IANS)
