Its Travel Time Babies Cuddle Up On Your Portable Cot

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!

Planning a journey out with baby needs to be well organized or your joyous trip might get disastrous with cranky babies all the way. You must provide them all the comfort wherever you take them. Giving a room to sleep solves most of the uneasiness faced by the babies. Therefore, a handy porta cot is useful while traveling great outdoors. You need to take care of a few things while purchasing the cot. You must consider the frequency of your travel and the kind of places you are going to travel. It is only then you can decide on purchasing the suitable cot. It is quite natural that parents think of all possibilities and avoid any kind of dangers involved as a safety measure for their precious child. The first thing that strikes the mind is that the cot should be simple and easy to carry. It should have a compact form.

Therefore, we must look for foldable cot. Make sure that the material used is strong enough to hold the baby. Otherwise, there are chances of the cot collapsing and the baby might be hurt. You must also ensure that the edges of the cot are smooth. The use of mesh cloth on the walls of the portable cot is a must so that there is proper ventilation as well as parents could observe the baby. The bed inside must be fit exactly without leaving gaps in the sides. This prevents trapping of any body parts of the baby. If there are, gaps in the sides the sheets may also lose the position and may lead to suffocation.

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 can buy cots along with bassinets and changing tables. That is even better because in certain locations you may not have a better option. The fabric used in the cot, bed or sheet must be easily washable. You must take care to place the portable cot in a safe place. You should take care not to place the cot near electrical equipments or circuit. Always prefer a peaceful environment. These cots are available with extra storage space. It is useful because you may not have enough room to keep your baby stuff on the go. These cots are temporary cots but make sure that you purchase one of high quality so that it is safe for the baby. Travel cots are available in range from$70 to $500. Several sizes, shapes and attractive colors make your baby feel cozy on the travel days. You have several web stores to purchase a quality travel cot. You can view the product and compare the prices. You can assess the product and place an order online. Shopping is easy with the online stores. You have package deals where you can avail a whole pack of things needed for your child's room at a discounted price. So grab the offers and deals. The product delivery would be prompt and you can have it without going to the local market. It saves time and all the hassles.

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.
