Newborn Tips#1: Don't Hush-A-Bye-Baby
You don't have to be quiet while the baby is sleeping. The womb is loud, and newborns are used to the noise. When ours first came home, we watched television and I would vacuum, wash dishes and talk on the phone around her while she slept. She got used to sleeping with noise, and I could get stuff done. I am still able to vacuum in her room while she sleeps (she is 14 months), and she is peaceful and well rested when she wakes up.
Newborn Tips#2: Soothe Your Wailing Newborn
When my baby cries, I comfort her by patting her back in a heartbeat-like rhythm. That helps her burp more quickly, and it also helps her relax if she's crying from insecurity. If this doesn’t work, I also try one or all of Dr. Harvey Karp's five calming moves: swaddling, shushing, holding her on her side, swinging her or letting her suck. Sometimes it takes all six!

Additional Information:

There are so many challenges involved in giving birth, it doesn't make any sense to add to your stress and emotional pressure when you don't have to. Between the emotional roller coaster that takes place between conception and delivery, most moms don't have a lot of time to consider their health and feelings postpartum.

Living Mom Birth has made it a mission to provide natural relief for one of the toughest parts of pregnancy: the months following birth. The single course of treatment can replenish and renew postpartum mother and energize the connection between parent and newborn baby. Not only that, but the shop at Living Mom Birth has many options available for every type of scenario that occurs after birth.

The Pregnancy Hormone

The special hormone released during pregnancy is known as hCG or human chorionic gonadotropin. It's one of the things that obstetricians test for in order to determine the nature of the pregnancy and to diagnose any potential issues. This substance is created by cells in the placenta and it nourishes the egg while it's lodged in the uterine wall. There are also many other hormones released during pregnancy, all of which have some purpose to help the mother or the gestating child during the process. Since the placenta is basically the pocket in which the baby spends its time in the womb, nourished by the umbilical cord, this this envelope like organ contains many of the hormones and other beneficial substances that support a healthy pregnancy.

Newborn Tips#3: Help Get Your Baby to Latch
If you are having latch-on issues while breastfeeding your baby, you can use breast shields to help the process. This was a wonderful tip that I learned from my lactation consultant. I had to use the shields for an entire month before my baby would latch onto my own nipple without them. Had it not been for the breast shields, I would not have been able to continue nursing my baby.
Newborn Tips#4: Get Prepped
At 3 weeks, babies’ days and nights become more predictable, and you can focus on yourself in addition to your newborn. One way to do that is by reducing your stress level - and having everything ready for your hungry baby and yourself is one way to do that. Start by prepping for the next feeding as soon as the previous one is over. For example, after an 11 p.m. feeding, get ready for the 2 a.m. one by prepping whatever you need for feeding and putting out fresh drinking water for yourself so you don’t have anything to think about in the middle of the night. During the day, take advantage of the baby’s naps to work out, shower or catch up on e-mail, or take a nap too.

That's all well and good as long as they placenta and the fetus are gestating in the mother's womb. However, this situation ends upon delivery. The placenta leaves the uterus along with the newborn, and all of those beneficial chemicals leave along with it. The shop at Living Mom Birth carries the medicinal solution to your baby blues, and also a way to alleviate the symptoms of a full clinical postpartum depression.

How it Works

Although the origins of this treatment have been lost to time, the idea of returning the hormones to the mother through the use of the placenta has been around in various civilizations for thousands of years. When you use the shop at Living Mom Birth, you're getting the benefit of tradition alongside the advancements of medical technology. Although there are many sources of remedies for postpartum anxiety and depression, home dehydration and other similar services don't compare with the hormonal retention of encapsulation. Not only that, but you get access to the fantastic mix of natural herbs that uplift or calm a new mother depending on her needs. When you've already got a million things to think and worry about while caring for a newborn, the last thing you want is hormones to get in the way and ruin some of the most precious time there is with a child.

Hormones change naturally during the course of pregnancy. That doesn't mean you have to sit down and take the abuse the rollercoaster of chemicals can do to your mood and your experience after childbirth. Placenta treatment from the Shop at Living Mom Birth can ease one of the most complicated transitions in a mother's relationship with her child.

Newborn Tips#5: Keeping Your Baby Awake During Feedings
When our baby was eating slowly and sleepily, my husband and I would massage her cheek to stimulate her to eat faster. A gentle stroke with a fingertip on her cheek was all it took, and on those long sleepless nights, this simple trick was a godsend! Our friends have found it works great with their infants too. When babies eat efficiently until they're full before going to sleep, they sleep for longer between feedings. And that means you’re both likely to be calmer!
Newborn Tips#6: Help Your Baby Bond with Dad
Make sure your baby has ample time alone with Daddy. His touch and voice are different than yours, and this will begin a bonding process and give you a break. Plus, it gets the baby used to being with someone other than you. The first few times can be hard. Make sure your baby is fed and well rested, as this will give you at least one or two hours before you're needed again. Then leave Dad and the baby alone. If you stay nearby, make sure the baby can’t see or hear you, and resist the urge to go into the room and "fix" things if she starts crying. Your baby cries with you and you experiment to find out what's wrong. Dads need time to do this too - in their own way. By allowing this time, your child will learn there is more than one way to receive comfort, which will help immensely when you leave your baby with a sitter or another family member for the first time. You could have your partner bathe her, put her to bed or just read or talk to her.
