2- Breastfeeding your new baby ...Breast milk provides all the nutrients that babies need for the first six months of their life and guards against many illnesses and allergies. Also, breastfeeding can help build a special closeness with your baby. Breastfeeding is one of the best things you can do for your baby. ||When your infant is carried, he should be oriented toward the carrying adult ||Reading aloud will help your baby be a better reader when she's older ||Infant constipation is the passage of hard, dry bowel movements — not necessarily the absence of daily bowel movements ||Don’t forget to put labels with date and time on your expressed milk bottles to check expiry dates ||Set aside time to spend with each child individually, so they don't feel like they're competing for your attention ||Toddler's appetite may change almost daily. Let her be the judge of how much she needs and wants to eat. ||During growth spurts - around 6 weeks after birth — your newborn might want to be fed more often ||The pacifier’s guard or shield should have ventilation holes so the baby can breathe if the shield does get into the mouth ||Make sure the highchair has a wide base, good fit, adjustable secure straps. Consider a post between the child's legs. ||
Nightmares and Night Terrors

 

Nightmares:

    • These are scary or vivid dreams that cause your child to awaken suddenly.
    • Occur mostly around ages 3 to 5, but can occur in older children.
    • Usually occur very early in the morning (4:00 to 6:00 a.m.), when your child is sleeping relatively lightly. However, they can occur at other times.
    • Your child will probably recall the dream very clearly. The dream may involve something disturbing experienced that day. Your child may have the same dream repeatedly.
    • Because nightmares are so scary, it may be difficult for your child to settle down and go back to sleep.

How to manage: Awaken and comfort your child; talk to him to ease any stress that may be bothering him; avoid watching TV before bedtime.

Night terrors:

    • Your child suddenly screams and sits up in bed. He or she may seem very agitated—sweating, heart racing, pupils wide.
    • These episodes are most common in preschool and older children.
    • Even though his or her eyes are open, your child may actually still be asleep. It may be several minutes before he or she finally wakes up.
    • When your child does awaken, he or she doesn’t remember any bad dream. As a result, getting back to sleep after night terrors may not be difficult.

How to manage: Treatment with medications not effective; try putting child to bed a little earlier to avoid tiredness. Most children outgrow having night terrors.
