For the record, both our midwife and paediatric told us to put the baby on the breast, facing us after each meal. We should gently pat her on the back a couple of times. We should not wait for her to burp but pat her a only couple of times. Our daughter usually burped very quickly, but the advice was specifically not to try too hard to get a burp; if she ...

What always worked for me was sitting them on my lap (I'm right handed so they'd sit on my right leg, facing my left leg), lean them forward slightly, putting my left hand under their chin to support them, and rub/pat the back with the right hand.

For completeness, though Im not necessarily recommending this... In the NICU, they rolled up a receiving blanket, taped it as a tight roll, and then taped the pacifier to the end. It gave a good long tool to hold the paci close to our girl. And though we use this, it's not without risks. In the NICU, the kids are on monitors all the time, so if there are ...

Have you heard about cluster feedings? This is a way of describing how sometimes a baby will have an apparently full meal, and then come back for more 45 minutes later! The way I heard someone explain this once was, that it's like going to a five star restaurant and having a multiple course meal! Babies march to their own drummer, so I would just let him ...

I took these signs from my favourite and well trusted source: Biting: Biting acts as counter pressure to relieve discomfort caused by pressure from poking in teeth via under the gums. Teething makes the baby gum whatever he or she sees or finds, right from fingers to teething rings and to your nipples that can get sore if you are ...

What can I do to as to getting him not to act this way? As a response to the specific situation, there is nothing you can do to make him not act that way. Not any more than someone can make you not be afraid of gun being pointed in your direction, or make you not be sad when a loved one dies. He's displaying a natural, emotional reaction to a situation. ...

What can I do to as to getting him not to act this way? I think the other answers address this fairly well. You're having an issue transitioning your little one to a new sleeping arrangement. That is an incredibly common issue. Sleeping location changes are a big deal for infants and toddlers. That's why there are so many "methods" out there for dealing ...

You're right that a stern tone can have an impact on an infant or a toddler. That doesn't necessarily mean it's wrong to use it; but it largely should be used when it's necessary to get their attention. For me, stern tone comes out (intentionally) when they're doing something unsafe, or hurtful to another; the two times I really want them to pay attention. ...

If I understand your question correctly, you are telling him "no" to throwing a fit. when our son starts crying and in my view throwing a fit, we both tell him no or that it's not ok to do that. Babies that are are unable to control their emotions. That takes a lot of front-lobe neural activity which isn't developed yet. Around 15 - 18 months, they ...

I recommend using the swing much less. Once or twice a day, for fun, but not as a way of getting the child to sleep. The child can sleep on a simple bed arrangement set up on the floor or on a low platform if you do not have a crib. I agree with you, six months is too young for the type of discipline your husband would like to apply. Good discipline is ...

My children find it quite frightening to see me cry. So, extrapolating backwards to age one, I think it must be frightening for that age too. There are a couple of things I don't understand. (First, I'll say that I'm not sure if your partner is "she" -- but for convenience, I'll use that pronoun for now.) First -- does she seem to find solace from being ...

When I was a child my mother fed me a lot of pineapple (I was born in Hawaii). Apparently this was the cause of my citric acid allergy, which translated into so many ear infections when I was a child that my eardrums are badly scarred now. I'd be careful about anything too acidic (citrus fruits, tomatoes).

Infants learn how to socialize and express their emotions by interacting with adults, primarily with their parents. Developing a positive, "happy" bond with the mother is good for babies, and depression interferes with that. Maternal postpartum depression during the child’s first year of life significantly predicted internalizing behavior problems. ...

You need to avoid the soft foods like marshmallows and jelly or gummy candies that might get stuck in your child's throat. Be careful not to give your toddler large dollops of peanut butter or other nut butters. You have should not give the foods which are sticky and hard kid of foods.

"to avoid" foods fall roughly into two categories: 1. Dangerous due to size or consistency. With other words, anything that can't be chewed/munched,/mushed/nibbeled into small enough pieces to prevent choking. With some babies it's amazing what they manage to "chew" just with their gums, others will resist even the smallest chunks in their puree. It's hard ...

My first strong advice is: Be confident on yourself as a parent. Many people will tell you many things that don't necessarily adjust to your baby. 2) Take a prenatal class, trust me, this helped us a lot. Because like you, we didn't have anyone to guide us. 3) Read some books. I think that I review at least two or three books. 4) The first days that you ...
