Any woman who is a mother knows exactly how much your kids rely on you.
They see you as “supermom” in a sense. Feeling tired, or just needing a break is almost impossible.
We try to cook, clean, take care of their needs, and play every day. That’s why we had kids and we love it… when we feel good!
However, sometimes I wish I could clone myself! Sometimes I just feel like… sleeping (shh… don’t tell anyone).
Babies come out with tiny rosebud lips that look like they are just waiting to be kissed. In fact, an infant face feels like an invitation to smooch. While affection is absolutely essential for the proper development of children, parents need to rethink letting just anyone kiss their children. In fact, they may want to rethink letting anyone kiss the baby on the mouth.
Parents are obviously going to resist strangers from off the street trying to kiss their babies,
Libraries are a wonderful place. They provide countless services and are often times the center of the community. They bring community members together through events and programs; offer internet access and research options to those who would otherwise be without; and supply an endless amount of knowledge simply by walking through their doors. Libraries allow users to travel the world, discover new languages and encounter numerous adventures all housed under the same roof. If you can’t make it to the physical library,
A few advices for cold:
Keep Them Hydrated
No matter your baby’s age, it’s essential to keep him well-hydrated when battling a cold. “A baby will usually want to nurse or take a bottle more frequently when sick because he needs that comfort,” says Dr. William Sears, Associate Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the University of California, Irvine, School of Medicine. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends against giving juice to infants under 1,
Q. Can I alleviate my baby’s gas pain?
A. You can help prevent gas by feeding her before she cries, a signal that she’s too hungry to wait any longer to eat. When you do feed her, use a leisurely pace, because rapid feeding increases her intake of air. If you are breastfeeding and your milk is letting down briskly, you may need to remove your baby for a moment and let the spray of milk slow down so she can manage the flow.
There’s no getting around it: Babies cry. It’s how they communicate hunger, pain, fear, the need to sleep, and more. So how are you supposed to know exactly what your baby is trying to tell you?
Here are the most common reasons babies cry:
- Stomach problems from colic and gas
- Needs to burp
- A dirty diaper
- Needs sleep
- Too cold or too hot
- Teething pain
- Something painful and hard to notice
- Wants less stimulation
- Wants more stimulation
- Not feeling well
Tamara Ecclestone is back on TV again, something I know about not because I’ve seen her new reality programme, but because the press is reacting with horror at the fact that she is still breastfeeding her daughter, in it – and daring to talk, openly and in public, about breastfeeding a three-year-old .
I won’t link to any of the posts, but it’s a predictable bunch of the usual, terrible tabloid suspects, a combination of faux horror about her ‘sparking debate’ and ‘shocking viewers’ and a barrage of disgusted tweets from members of the public while they slyly step back,
