Have you ever seen your baby shake when she’s asleep? I did plenty of times, and it scared me as hell. I would see my baby shaking in sleep almost every night.
I think you'll agree with me when I say:
The first time you have a baby is probably the most exciting and the scariest time of your adult life. When our baby moves a lot in sleep, we’re worried that she’s uncomfortable or that something wrong is happening.
Well, that is not always the case but as other people say, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
So we’ve listed some helpful bits of information to save the day. These may be the reasons for your baby’s movements in sleep; thus it’s nice to get to know them and apply them to our parenthood.
When you search for baby photos on the Internet or have photos taken of your newborn, one pose appears to stand out:
Baby is sleeping face down.
The infants seem to be sleeping in bliss, giving the impression that babies sleep on their belly as well as when they are on sleeping on their back.
Co-sleeping, as I’ve previously shared with you, has several benefits. However, this topic usually raises an eyebrow, especially here in our beloved land of the free.
The primary reason for that is there’s a risk of parents rolling over their baby. This is why a journal concluded that “A substantial reduction of SIDS rates could be achieved if parents avoided bed sharing.”
Let me clarify, though, that co-sleeping doesn’t always have to be bed sharing. There is another method known as room sharing.
Coughs and colds are common among children especially when its winter.
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.
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.
We also know that this 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:
"I have food poisoning. Should I still breastfeed?"
Well, 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 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.
So here I am sharing with you five of the best teething necklaces for your babies. But first, let me tell you why you need one.
