|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!|
To name a baby is not an easy task to do for the parents. They need to be very careful in choosing the name as the child will be using that name for the lifetime. So the name should be unique and meaningful. The parents know the seriousness of giving a name to the boy. For giving a new name to the boy the parents used to read books and consult websites so that they can make a list of all suitable names and then they can finalize one name. Parents want the name of their child to be unique, normal, easy to pronounce and meaningful but it should not be old fashioned. Because till the time the boy will grown up the name will get old fashion so it may create a problem for him. This can create some anxiety over choosing a boy names as your baby will have to live with it the whole life. Combining the parents name with the child's name is a method which is evergreen and it is an idea that can fit in any type of the environment. You can use first, middle and/or last names as a whole or break them up and combine them.
|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 need to choose from the boy names which are available as you need to have a classic name or a unique or a popular boy names. If you're looking for tradition and something that's sure to stand the test of time go for a classic baby name. If you'd rather your baby stand out from the crowd go for something different and unique or get a sense of what's popular now and go for a more “trendy” baby name.
When you are picking the boy names you must name the baby after someone. It is not necessary that it is behind father or the grandfather it can be after any person. You could name him after the member in the family or any other relative or any other favorite character or the book or anything else which you like. If you decide to name your baby in honor of someone remember the name doesn't have to be their first name. If you are naming the child behind any of the family member to owner he then you should know that the entire member in the family are happy to do so or not. Otherwise it can be a problem in naming the child with the particular name. So name your child as it is the best feeling that one can have after the birth of the child.
|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.|
