|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!|
Yes, I'm talking to you. If you have a Huggies Coupon and are thinking of throwing it into the bin, please don't. A Huggies Coupon is generally worth anywhere between one and five dollars. I'm sure you wouldn't throw out that kind of money in legal tender. Even if you do not have a baby, you can pass the coupon on to someone in the family or amongst your friends with a little baby. You will find them very grateful. Babies go through thousands of diapers by the time they are fully potty trained and diapers do not come cheap. For newborns, diapers are an excellent way of keeping the baby clean and dry as they build up their immunity.
Huggies ranges of diapers are excellent for newborns and older toddlers as they offer dryness, comfort and snugness. These qualities are important for parents when catering to their baby's needs. They want to have their children able to move around, play and sleep peacefully. That means the diaper must be absorbent and well fitting. A Huggies Coupon helps parents to get these diapers in a more affordable way. Although most coupons are focused on a specific product, parents can still make use of them. Huggies diapers are all made of skin friendly products and the baby shouldn't suffer any side effects of using any of the varieties on offer.
|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.|
Currently, Huggies offers 5 variants of diapers. The 'Snug and Dry' diapers are the most popular. They feature a snugly fitted diaper with an elastic waistband. The 'Little Snugglers' range caters to newborns. It is designed to allow the belly button to heal naturally and openly. They are also specially fitted for little legs and include an indicator so parents can know when to change diapers. Huggies 'Little Movers' are more flexible to allow the baby crawl and move along more easily and comfortably. The 'Pure and Natural' diapers are made of pure cotton and are hypoallergenic. Huggies 'Overnite', which are currently only available in the U.S., are designed with high absorbency in mind and can provide up to 12 hours leak proof protection. All the diapers come with popular cartoon character depictions like Winnie the Pooh.
Parents and their friends can most easily access a Huggies Coupon through the Huggies official website. By registering online, the account holder will receive regular updates on coupon offers and a newsletter on how to make savings on baby products and new products form Kimberley Clark. Although parents cannot make purchases directly from the Huggies website, then are able to use their Huggies Coupon on other online retail sites like Amazon. Disposable diapers are great because they don't expire soon. They are long lasting, hence when the opportunity arises to make use of a coupon, parents shouldn't hesitate. Just because you have a few packs already in the house doesn't mean you can't stock up. Coupon offers for Huggies diapers tend to end quickly because of the huge demand so don't dilly-dally, take advantage of a Huggies Coupon as soon as you get it.
|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.|
