GREAT BABY ADVICE AND TIPS
BABY ADVICE !
This article is about baby advice and children care. It lists ideas and tips on how to take care of your baby, especially new born care.
TIPS ABOUT BREAST FEEDING!
The new mother has to feed, sleep, cloth and bath the little newborn angel in a gently manner. It is a demanding and confusing time, where advice is highly appreciated. For the best of the baby, due feed your new baby on your own milk. Your milk contains colostrum, which is a vital part of the immune system building parts. Milk from the mother will help your baby body more resistant to viruses and bacteria in the younger years.
Please be aware, that your baby eats the same as you. When you eat or drink, those adult foods will flow into the baby milk, and your baby will enjoy the same meal by the milk. We have found that coffee and spinach did harm the stomach of our two girls, when they were below 6 months – so my wife didn’t have it.
TIPS ABOUT BOTTLE FEEDING!
If you for any reason do bottle feeding, make sure that bottles are well sterilized and extreme clean. Old milk can easily cause a bad stomach. Use the appropriate tools for cleaning, rather to much – than to little. Boil the bottles for at least 20 minutes at a high temperature.
TIPS ABOUT BABY SLEEPING!
A good night sleep is just as important to you as to the baby. Make some good sleeping habits from the beginning and build in a firm routine by night and daily naps. Remove unnecessary clothing or clothes around the baby, which might cause temperature rise and heating. Cover the baby with a small mosquito net to avoid insects.
TIPS ABOUT CHANGING DIAPERS!
Diapers must be changed regularly. The changing intervals should be fixed according to the routine of the baby´s potting and wetting. Even though a good routine is establish, the baby may need changing because of nature unpredictable issues. It is the baby´s right to feel dry and comfy at every moment in life.

MODERN NEWBORN SWIMWEAR – PREPARE FOR HOLIDAY
MODERN NEWBORN SWIMWEAR
This is an article about baby swimming and modern newborn swimwear.
The summer is approaching in US and Europe and you have to ask yourself; “Are we ready for the summer fun with our baby or not”?
According to doctors and other professionals in health, your baby won’t suffer from bathing in a pool, even though they just turned one month old. On the contrary, introducing children to water and bathing in a very early age can be a good head start for teaching them to swim later on in life. You should get prepared for baby swimming and purchase the appropriate modern newborn swimwear.
Let me be honest, it is not easy to find suitable swimwear for young boys or girls below the age of three months. Most manufactures starts their swimwear sizes anywhere between three to 6 months. When they become older babies and toddlers, case is different.
MODERN NEWBORN SWIMWEAR – DIAPERS
A solution for baby swimming is to not even use a baby bathing suit, just keep them naked and wrap a swim diaper around the body. This was former an issue, that kept parents from baby swimming – because of the risk of accidents in the pool. With the advent of swim diapers, those fears no longer need to prevent a baby for having a funny experience of bathing and swimming.
Swimming diapers are mostly made from polyurethane lined with cotton cloth. They are machine washable and dryable and are made especially for parents, who are concerned that their babies may relive themselves in excitement in the pool or in the ocean. They are available from most baby stores. Another solution is to use an ordinary fresh diaper and having the baby in the water for only 10 minutes, to minimize the risk of accidents, but at the same time – enjoy the baby. Put a pair of shorts on top of diaper, to keep it close to the body.
MODERN NEWBORN SWIMWEAR – SWIM WINGS
When you take your babies or children bathing in the pool or the ocean – the aspect of playing is the most important one. Whatever you choose to use regular baby swim suits or newborn swimwear – there are so many fantastic flotation devices made for our beloved kids and one of the most popular devices are the water wings, sliding over the arms and keeping the child free to splash in the water. The very popular water wings are not made for children below 12 months. Even though manufactures claims, that these are made for children safety – do not trust the wings to take care of your baby. The baby at the pool, wearing the wings should always be accompanied by an adult, due to the risk of drowning. Eventually, combine the swim wings with a proven safety belt for kids.
Remember to use a high factor sun protection cream, which is water resistant. Don’t save a few dollars and catch sunburn. It is very painful to children, as their skin is extremely sensitive.
