Newborns are expected to lose some weight after delivery due to fluid loss. Don’t worry ||Most newborns need eight to 12 feedings a day — about one feeding every two to three hours ||During the day, don't try to catch up on chores while the baby sleeps. Lie down and rest ||For protecting young children during summer months, apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going outside ||You'll develop a unique parenting style that is right for your family and may be quite different from your neighbors and friends. ||AAP recommends to avoid blankets (a potential suffocation hazard) until your baby reaches her first birthday ||Whenever possible, don't get involved in your kids' clash. Step in only if there's a danger of physical harm. ||Every milestone is an accomplishment, but it means your child is more independent and needs you a little less ||The AAP recommends sponge baths until the umbilical cord stump falls off — which might take up to three weeks ||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. ||
Bedwetting Do’s and Dont’s

 

Do’s

  • Encourage your child to drink normally throughout the day. It is important that they recognize the feeling of a full bladder.
  • Try To keep an eye on what your child drinks to see if any type of drink makes them produce more urine at night. They can then try stopping drinking it to see if it helps.
  • Ensure that your child has plenty of fruit, vegetables, cereal and fluids. This will help to avoid constipation which can contribute to bedwetting.
  • Ensure that your child goes to the toilet before going to bed.
  • Leave the light on at night to ensure that your child has easy access to the toilet.
  • Make sure that the mattress and bed are adequately protected.
  • Allow your child to help with changing the bed and night clothes. It does help if they are actively involved in overcoming the problem.
  • Stay calm, be prepared and try not to worry.
  • Remember, bedwetting is neither the child’s fault nor the parents. Patience, Love and encouragement will go a long way to resolving the problem for everyone in the family.

Don’ts

  • Do not get angry with your child, it’s not their fault.
  • Do not use waking the child as a long term strategy to overcome bedwetting.
