Coughs and colds are common among children especially when its winter. In fact, children get eight to ten colds per year until they’re about two years old. But just because it’s normal doesn’t mean that we should take toddler coughing at night lightly.
Sometimes, it may just be caused by simple saliva blocking the air passages; other times, it could be a symptom of a more serious underlying cause. So here we give you some reasons your baby coughs at night and what you can do about them.
You’re probably listing down the items you need to buy for your baby's arrival when you stopped and asked, “How many crib sheets do I need?”
If you survey experienced moms, you'll find out that they will give you a different answer.
Because it really depends on the preference.
So before determining the number of crib sheets you’ll purchase, ask yourself these questions:
I understand that we, moms, would like to keep a close watch on our little bundle of joys 24/7 if the odds allow. But we also know that that happening is contrary to reason. We should give each other some time to rest and our babies to grow and learn on their own.
Speaking of on their own, when do you decide to put your baby in his or her own room? Is there a specific time?
You keep on vomiting, visiting the toilet as if you hadn’t seen each other for a long time, getting cold sweats, and whatnot, so you ask yourself, “Should I still nurse my baby?”“It depends.”
Basing on the extensive research I have done, the answer depends on the level of your food poisoning. But before I share with you these levels, look at the symptoms of food poisoning first and what usually causes it.
What’s the solution for babies who just love to chew? You may say a teether or some ice chips will do. But what if you don’t have any? That’s when the best teething necklace will come handy. Now before I start, I know that some moms would rather suffer than wear a slimy saliva-covered teething necklace. But if you want to keep your wits intact, you’ll need one.
Do you want to change diapers on top of your clean bed? No thanks! Your baby’s exploding poop will just ruin the sheets!
How about doing it on top of a bathroom counter? Not possible! If your kid is as energetic as mine, he’ll be on the floor the next second! How about all those germs? You want your kid to catch that while lying on top of a public changing table?
So what is the answer to squirmy kids and dirty surfaces?
Our kids’ laugh is the best sound ever! I still remember it back then, 24 hours after delivery, my baby is laughing in her sleep! I thought it’s the anesthesia that is doing tricks in my eyes, but no, hubby has also seen it. Too bad we were not able to record that one! Thinking back now, that was unusual but not unexpected. Babies can indeed laugh, giggle or cry in their sleep.
So your baby won’t sleep in the bassinet but only in your arms? You are too tired, and your eyes can’t hold up any longer? Do you wish you could put your baby to sleep through the night in his bassinet or co-sleeper?
In this article, I will give you tips on how to successfully transition into the bassinet, so you’ll finally get some quality sleep that you deserve.
Does your baby sweat buckets? When my little girl is small, she’s like a trickling faucet. The AC is at full blast and my baby’s head is sweating while sleeping. Before long, her hair is soaked.
