How To Pick The Best Nursery Bedding For Your Newly Born Child

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:

A baby's sleep is affected by the way he feels when he sleeps. He must be comfortable and must be able to roll around in his sleep without any problem. Babies are so fragile and sensitive that choosing the perfect bed and bedding will take some time.

This article will be able to help you choose the best nursery bedding for your child. First off, choosing the right material for the nursery bedding is the key factor for the perfect bedding. It has to be soft, light, and can keep a baby warm during the night. The baby is placed in the crib for almost 60% of the day where he plays, sleeps and do baby things there. It should be comfortable enough to play around and sleep anytime. The sheets over the mattress should not be easily removed as to let the baby roll around and play without him being tangled around the sheets. Choose a mattress with a higher density than the normal mattress and make sure it is double-sided. These double-sided mattresses last longer than the normal mattresses. Lastly, choose those mattresses that are labeled antibacterial, non-toxic, and hypoallergenic to lessen the risk of skin irritation while the baby roams around its bedding.

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.

You should also consider not placing stuffed toys or pillows inside the crib. Comforters, stuffed animals should be avoided even though it would look perfect with the bedding design. These things increase the risk of injuries and death of the infant due to accidental suffocation. Plus, you can save more money for other things like milk and diapers instead of buying these things that might just end up harming your baby, right?

Lastly, you should be able to choose the perfect, most comfortable sheets for your baby bedding. The sheets should fit snugly on the mattress and has a tight grip so that it will securely be in place even after a lot of movements are made by the baby. Sheets should also be pre-washed by the manufacturer. If they are not pre-washed, they tend to shrink and lose their shape after washing. Look for sheets that are 100% cotton-made. These kinds of sheets are able to hold its shape even after repeated washings.

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.
