Putting your baby to sleep – Useful links

Settling you baby to sleep: It's amazing how we try too hard isn't it???? lol!Fran's basket is on a rocking stand so if she doesn't settle within a few minutes I just reach out and rock her gently without turning the light on just to calm her down a bit.I find the less interaction I have with her the better and it's amazing how quickly she nods off once the lights go out.We started putting her up to bed on her own last Tuesday and using the monitor rather than taking her up when we go up and because she can self settle we have had no problems so far. It's just taking things one step at a time - we are attempting dream feeding too in the hopes she will eventually start sttn - she goes a bit longer each night so fingers crossed!! My newborn fusses when I…

From what age is safe to hold a baby in a baby sling?

From what age is safe to hold a baby in a baby sling?

A baby sling - or some calls it baby kangaroo carrier - is a very comfortable wear for both babies and mums. The biggest benefit is that it frees up both hands and makes it easier to carry the baby's body weight. It is ideal for longer baby carrying periods. The classic sling is a one-shouldered baby carrier made of soft fabric. Some most models distribute the weight across both shoulders - they are the kangaroo types.

Breast feeding question: Can I mix formula with breast milk?

Breast feeding question: Can I mix formula with breast milk?

My lactation consultant confirmed that it's nothing against mixing breast milk with formula. However if you think about it from the practical standpoint giving them separate is a much better approach simply to avoid wasting your precious breast milk that has all the goodies. Because you are putting breast milk and formula in the same bottle you may risk that your baby won't finish it during the feed and you have to dispose what's left of that bottle all together. The reason is that formula from a bottle that your baby has drunk from must be discarded within an hour of preparation. Bacteria will grow from the saliva of the baby. On the other hand breast milk can be kept refrigerated for a number of hours in a bottle that's been fed. simply because of the difference in flavors and for not wasting the breastmilk if the baby does not…
