Keeping a newborn baby happy and calm is one of the key factors to their success as a baby. Babies are curious creatures and are more likely to cry when separated from their parents, or if they are not receiving proper care and attention. But parents need to remember that, although babies do need attention, they do not need two hours of it every night! So while you’re trying to keep a newborn awake you should also try and make sure he’s getting plenty of rest during the day too, to ensure that he is fresh when you return for another round of sleep!
How can you make sure your little one is getting the rest he needs? Well, try to make sure that his sleeping environment, both in and out is comfortable. If his sleeping area is cool and moist, he will be less likely to sleep well at night, and you run the risk of waking up with a colicky baby! If the room is too hot, he may refuse to sleep there, and it’s important to keep the room at a comfortable temperature. Some babies have trouble sleeping when the room temperature is too cold, so if this applies to your child, make sure to keep the room nice and toasty.
Getting your newborn used to sleeping soundly during the night is the first and most important step towards keeping him happy and healthy through the first year of life. This early foundation gives him the security of knowing that he will be safe and secure when you are away from him. Try and set a good example of how you like to be treated when you are away, by having a bedtime routine, or setting a bedtime alarm. This helps him to associate going to bed with going to sleep and getting well, and this pattern of routine is the cornerstone of any good baby’s sleep routines – it is these early experiences that keep a newborn awake at night!
Do you want to know how to burp a newborn baby? There are actually many methods of doing this, and they have been found to work quite well for most newborn babies. One way is called the “burp cloth” method. It involves wrapping a towel around your newborn’s torso before you burn them, thus making them hold up the rest of their clothes. This is a great way to clean up as it cleans all of the stinky matter that is stuck between their teeth, and their cheeks.
The next way that you can effectively burp a newborn is with the aid of a bottle. You simply put the bottle to your newborn’s mouth, and blow gently into it. This will cause gas to be released, which when combined with the warmth of the bottle, will make burping easier. You do not want to use too much pressure though, or you could cause the baby to gag. If you find that your baby is not burping properly after a few attempts, you can use a bottle and airbrush it onto their mouth.
There are also chin strap burps, and it works best on newborn babies who are still learning how to breathe on their own. Simply attach the chin strap to your chin, and gently burp in through the nose, holding it for about 5 seconds. After that, slowly pull the chin strap off, and it should come off on its own. Burping is sometimes very difficult for newborn babies, so it’s important that you continue to practice it, so you can get better at it in the future. Once your little one starts to learn how to burp on their own, you won’t have any more problems burping, as it is their most natural defense. Hopefully these methods can help you eliminate the need for diapers in the first place and start your baby off life with only the necessities!
Start planning your first steps with baby walking. While you might have already heard about this super-precious little 6-month-old baby who can take the shopping malls by storm, most infants typically hit the walking mile milestone a little later, between nine and eighteen months. If you’re among those parents who think your baby is too young to enjoy the joys of walking or the peace and quiet of a stroll around the block, it’s time to let go of that notion and give baby walking a try. Many doctors recommend starting walking with baby in the early months, because the child is more susceptible to walking and stroller-based walking helps develop gross motor skills. It also helps develop babies’ self-confidence. If your baby has never been walking before, take some time to practice and pick up some tips on baby walking from moms who’ve had successful experiences. But if you’ve always wanted to get your baby out into the fresh air and the rhythms of nature, now is the best time!
When you do start baby walking (don’t worry, he or she will usually follow the lead of your hand), be sure to keep your baby well supported and protected at all times. Baby may want to take a few extra steps in the beginning, but don’t take them too far ahead of their pace. Some baby walkers are made with special grippers around the soles of the feet to prevent slipping, so you may want to look for one of these models. Other baby walkers are made of rubber soles that will not wear down or wear away.
When you’re first steps into baby walking, take your time and be patient. You may find that you need to pick up several baby essentials to make the whole thing easier, like a baby stroller or a special pair of baby walking shoes. There are a number of accessories available, including a baby carriage, a swing, an umbrella, and more. Be sure you shop around before you buy any of them to be sure you get just the right ones for your needs and the size of your baby. And as always, be sure to check out a baby walker’s reviews before you buy it.
