Try to keep other elements of your baby's routine as normal as possible during the strike. ||After the first hectic weeks, babies take longer naps at predictable times. And you'll become a much better time manager ||Reading aloud will help your baby be a better reader when she's older ||During the day, don't try to catch up on chores while the baby sleeps. Lie down and rest ||Use each feeding as an opportunity to build your newborn's sense of security, trust and comfort. ||As a new mommy, sleep when your baby sleeps. Silence your phone and ignore the dishes in the sink ||You'll develop a unique parenting style that is right for your family and may be quite different from your neighbors and friends. ||Look for early signs of hunger, such as stirring and stretching, sucking motions and lip movements. Fussing and crying are later cues ||Don’t forget to put labels with date and time on your expressed milk bottles to check expiry dates ||The pacifier’s guard or shield should have ventilation holes so the baby can breathe if the shield does get into the mouth ||
