After the first hectic weeks, babies take longer naps at predictable times. And you'll become a much better time manager ||During the day, don't try to catch up on chores while the baby sleeps. Lie down and rest ||The AAP recommends sponge baths until the umbilical cord stump falls off — which might take up to three weeks ||During growth spurts - around 6 weeks after birth — your newborn might want to be fed more often ||Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently. It’s not the type of soap that prevents the spread of bacteria and viruses; it’s how you wash your hands. ||Trim your baby’s nails weekly after a bath when the nails are softened ||Don't let your baby nap in the car seat after you're home as a substitute for crib since it's harder for young babies to breathe in that position. ||Your baby's foot may seem flat, but that's because a layer of fat covers the arch. Within two to three years, this extra padding will disappear. ||Contact the doctor if your newborn isn't gaining weight, wets fewer than six diapers a day or shows little interest in feedings ||Plan for regular family meals. Enjoy being together as a family and give a chance for everyone to decompress from the day ||
Study: Spoon-Fed Babies at Higher Risk for Obesity

 

Feb 2012 -- Researchers at the University of Nottingham England determined that babies who were spoon-fed purees were more likely to prefer sweets as they got older, as opposed to babies who fed themselves finger foods.

A total of 155 children were studied, ages ranging from 20 months to six and a half-years-old. Those who were spoon-fed tended to be overweight as children, while the babies whose parents weaned them gradually preferred healthier meals and were able to maintain normal weights.

So maybe we should let our little kids get disorganized and feed themselves.
