Things To Remember Before Buying Cots For Babies

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!

Choosing a cot for your new baby can be an exciting and perplexing experience. There many things to consider such as safety, cost and style. You can find cot beddings anywhere in the market that are affordable also but have you ever think that they are safe for your children? Safety should definitely be the first thing to consider before buying nursery for your kid.

The first thing you need to remember is the material of the cot. Are they made of wood or iron? Preferable is wooden one because they are rust free and safe for kids. Boori sleigh cots and Boori classic cots from the international brand Boori are the best example of perfect blended cots. The material they use for making cots is Araucaria which is free from chemicals and emits less emission.

The second thing that you need to remember that cot bedding is rather soft. This can pose a sort of risk, especially if your baby sleeps on their stomach often. Ensure that the bedding that you choose is not too soft, but also not too hard. Those that are too soft can be a risk, but those are too hard to be uncomfortable for the baby. Find a happy medium and stick with it.

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.

It's mandatory to check the size of the cot. It should not be too small because then it will end up being quite uncomfortable for your child. And if it too large then there must be gap between the rods and cot which is very dangerous for your kid. So make sure that you take measurements of the cot you are intending to put the bedding in, and measure the bedding as well.

Not a lot of people put a great deal of thought into the bedding for their baby. However, it is just as important as anything else that you will buy for him or her. The cot bedding that your baby will sleep on will have a huge effect on its quality of sleep and overall growth of the child.

You also want to see that choosing a cot for your new baby doesn't break the bank! You'll have many other things to buy for baby so you need to make sure to choose a cot that works within your budget without having to sacrifice safety or style. Shopping online the Boori sleigh cot and Boori classic cot is the best way to do this.

In matters of style, Boori offers from contemporary to traditional cots. There are styles that are very modern as well as classic, timeless styles. There are some styles that are clearly for girls, some that are clearly for boys and some that could be for either of the genders. Boori preferred the oldest style which has been fabricated with utmost care and last long for years.

Last but not the least, Boori classic cots and sleigh cots are very affordable and available in different colours. You can select the white, teak or walnut colour. It will definitely suit your home and will be best for your baby.

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.
