Crying Can Mean Many Things

Specialists once thought that when a baby cries, it means they are experiencing stomach ache. Now, studies have shown that it may also be the cause of acid reflux. Experiencing this is painful for adults, let alone for babies. When your baby does constant screaming, back arching, and spitting up, these may be a sign of acid reflux. It’s of utmost importance to go to a pediatrician to know what really causes your baby to cry.

It’s Okay to Hold Your Baby

There has always been this rule that you can’t hold your baby too much because he or she might get over dependent. Ignore this because you can’t spoil a baby just by holding him or her. In fact, babies who are held often are more satisfied because their needs are met right away. They are more likely to have a higher self-esteem while growing up. It’s the natural thing to do, so don’t hesitate doing it.

Don’t Depend On Baby Wipes

Baby wipes are costly and may cause irritations for sensitive bums. Instead of risking your baby’s smooth skin, just use a damp cloth. Studies say that breastfed babies don’t need baby wipes because their feces and urine are low in acid and bacteria. You can easily clean them off with a damp cloth.

Faster Sterilization

You might think that sterilizing the baby bottles is time-consuming and stressful, but it isn’t anymore. Doing it the old-fashion way with an expensive home sterilizer is not the only way to do it anymore. Just toss everything inside your dishwasher, put some soap, and run it on a short and hot cycle.

Babies like Music

Although you might think that babies can’t appreciate symphonies and melodies, they can. The sound of soothing instruments and a warm voice can calm your baby down. You can turn on the CD player while on the road and it can even put a baby to sleep.

No Rush for Shoes

You don’t really need to put shoes on your toddler’s feet until he or she can walk. Socks are the only feet accessory babies need just to prevent their feet from getting dirty. It’s more practical to save the money until your baby really needs them.

Baby Health Tips and Advice

July 26th, 2012 2:32 am

During a baby’s development the baby will start teething which will cause some pain, and might cause infections and an increase or decrease in his body’s temperature.

This thing affects the baby’s health but is a normal occurrence.
The teething process starts at about 6 months of age and lasts up to 9 months of age in some cases. This is very important aspect of the newborn baby care.

But you don’t need to worry about your baby’s health if he or she teeth later – go to the doctor only if the delay is extreme.

If your baby’s body temperature decreases or increases it might mean that your baby is suffering from an infection and you need to visit a doctor.

Also if you see that your infant is bleeding from his gums you don’t need to be afraid – check to see that there is no damage in the baby’s mouth. It might be caused due to blood rushing to the tissues during the teething process. Also check to see that the blood loss isn’t severe – if it is, go to a hospital or doctor at once.

Also know that when a baby is teething a rash might appear, and pain is experienced – you can reduce that by giving the baby something to bite on or by giving him or her local anesthetic. But don’t use them loosely and freely – consult a doctor.
