|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!|
Designers Give Newborn Baby Clothes Overhaul With Classic Colour, Trendy Shapes
What makes newborn baby clothes trendy? Is it the traditional colors, paired with more modern, fun shapes and styles? Or, is it the designer name brands whose manufacturers choose to use higher-grade materials, such as organic cotton and made with 100 percent bamboo?
Trendystuff incorporate two ideas, pairing modern shapes and styles with traditional colors and choosing to use higher-grade materials. How do designer baby clothes become 'designer'?
Quality Sells Designer Baby Clothes
Many times before designer ones become trendy, manufacturers are selling customers on the quality and uniqueness of their designs. A clothing label must convince consumers that their newborn baby clothes are worth having.
Do these wash better than other fabric ? Does the bamboo material maintain its softness without eventually growing rough after one too many washings?
|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.|
Questions About Trendy Baby Clothes
Does the clothing label stand behind any of the promises made on or offline? Are their dresses made of higher quality cottons that are made with better stitching and more resistant to color fading?
Parents want to get a good deal for their money when purchasing any dresses for their tiny tot or trendy stuff for their baby. They want designer clothing that live up to their expectations. Essentially, parents want clothes that are cute, affordable, and made of high quality.
Manufacturer Sets Bar With Newborn Baby Clothes
Why does a manufacturer set a bar or standard with newborn baby clothes? This is because often times these baby outfits use little material and it is difficult to incorporate fun ideas into a single, one-piece bodysuit.
But, the real challenge for manufacturers is to make clothes for babies that catches the eye of a buyer. To do this, manufacturers must rely on more than just use of traditional color and cute design.
Quality In the Stitching
A manufacturer must make sure stitching is of higher grade quality than their competitors. And, prices must be competitive, but not extravagantly overpriced for manufacturers beginning to build a quality designer clothing label.
Satisfied customers will keep coming back and buying when they see a good deal because customers know a quality buy when they see it. And as long as manufacturers keep introducing new products and catering to customer's needs, they will remain on the top of customers to-buy-from lists.
|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.|
