|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!|
Do you believe that Baby Food you feed to your Baby matters lot? The researches that carried by the experts about the New Born baby Food & Food for Different age group suggest a lot, which really surprise you. I hope many knew to some extent about the Infant Food, which can be
The Breast Milk
Cow or buffalo milk
Gerber Baby Food or
Traditional Food Approaches
Fruits & Vegetables
All the Food for Baby mentioned above makes the baby food complete, but many times I wish to make you aware of which would be best & how can it impact on the child
I really appreciate the mothers who love to feed the Breast Milk, it has lot of advantages. The mother milk gives immunity to the kids, which allows the baby to resist & fight against the infection. The Breast Milk that contains all the essentials required for the Baby Development also maintains a good metabolism that keeps the kid most attentive & live in all the situations. Digestion of this feed is easily, Avoids obesity & Diabetes; I can say that it can make the difference when compared to the baby not fed with the mother Breast milk.
Cow or buffalo milk
The mothers who really can't feed their kid with the breast milk in case of lack of production or due to the health problems then the best recommended is the Cow or Buffalo Milk, this milk is bit harder to digest when compared the mother milk, hence its always better to feed with small quantity or be ensured to feed at frequent intervals of time at the appropriate quantity. But never to feed the raw milk without boiling, though it is rich with its values may contain some of the microorganisms hence to be ensured the sterilization of Milk before feeding.
|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.|
I can say that this can be a better approach as a 6 Months Baby Food, & can be fed to all 6 Months & above Baby. The Nestle Cerelac was brought to the market to ensure that it can be a complete food for the babies who are lacking with the diet, the Cerelac products are highly enriched with most of the values that required for the baby. A physician can better which the product of Cerelac is better to use based on the baby hygiene condition.
Indian Baby Food these days also considers Enfamil as the most required making the baby feed complete, that really might have the reason! The Enfamil A+ enriched with all the values that a baby need, that can certainly elite the Baby Care that a Mom does. This can be an easily digestible feed, but excess feeding can't be a good practice.
Gerber Baby Food
This was indexed as the best baby food by many of the mothers who use it; they like to recommend it to all the young mothers to care their New Born Baby. Gerber Foods can also be fed as a good food for 1 year old & the kids who can't digest on the regular food practices.
Traditional Food Approaches
The Indian food practices are the best, but where many of them lacking with knowledge of which food can be better to the kids. The Cereals, Grams & the sprouts & the Ragi Recipes were the best preferred food. I can say that these Baby food Recipes can make a difference to enhance the spirits on the growing kids.
Fruits & Vegetables
It is a known truth to many, that the fruits are very good to use in the diet & keeps them healthy. Banana baby Food is most recommended by many of the mothers, but this should be under the limits where excess feeding with spoil the baby metabolism.
Meat likes the Fish & prawn is very good, but is ensured that should never feed to the too young Baby. The young Baby feels difficulty to digest the meat like the Chicken or Mutton, though they has some values one need to be always cautious on the matter of baby Food Practices.
|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.|
