As a new baby mother who has to breast feed you should make sure that you drink lots of water ... Make a habit out of drinking a glass of water every time you feed your baby. This will ensure that you are getting your water, and help your body produce enough milk. ||Reading aloud will help your baby be a better reader when she's older. ||Use each feeding as an opportunity to build your newborn's sense of security, trust and comfort. ||If your child's scalp is very crusty, put some baby oil or olive oil on the scalp 1 hour before washing to soften the crust ||The sun is the most important source of Vit D ||Do not postpone your baby’s vaccines unless he is sick or feverish ||Never tie a pacifier to your child’s crib or around your child’s neck or hand. This could cause serious injury or even death ||Use a firm mattress and avoid placing your baby on thick, fluffy padding that may interfere with breathing if your baby's face presses against it ||Most newborns need eight to 12 feedings a day — about one feeding every two to three hours ||Your toddler may be clumsy simply due to her trials to master so many new physical skills at the same time. The more active she is, the more likely she will drop things, run into things, or fall down. ||
Getting your toddler to listen
 
Toddlers are just like the rest of us — they don't always listen. Being a good listener helps your child learn more effectively, get along better with you and with other adults she'll be expected to respect, and also make better friends.

Try these strategies when your child isn't listening:
 
Before the problematic situation
  • Be playful.
  • Say "no" less by childproofing your home.
  • Make sure your child has at least 15 minutes a day of your complete attention.
  • Find time for yourself so you have the energy to give the proper attention and discipline.
  • Ignore mild behavior. If a child does not get attention for a behavior, he will often stop doing it.
  • Give warnings then follow through rapidly. For example before you're ready to leave the house, tell your child "We're going to leave in a few minutes."
 
During the problematic situation
  • Redirect your child to another activity.
  • Use humor as a distracting tool
  • Get on her level. Squat down or pick your child up, so you can look her in the eye and grab her attention.
  • Be clear. Your message should not be too long and should not be phrased as a question if your child doesn't actually have a choice.
  • Mean what you say. If you tell your 2-year-old, "You need to drink some milk at dinnertime," don't let her have juice instead.
  • Stay emotionally neutral. Avoid spanking and shouting.
  • "Calming time." Giving your child a quiet activity (drawing, coloring, puzzle pieces, etc) can calm her better than simply sitting (a time-out)
 
After the problematic situation
  • Treat them with confident good humor. The good humor and trust you demonstrate to your child when speaking to her will make her want to listen to you.
  • Model good behavior. Make it a habit to listen to your child as respectfully as you would to any adult.
  • Trial and error. Remember that each child is different and find what works specifically for you and your child.
