Presumably, your baby won't recall events from his life before age 3. Still, these early experiences outline his vision of the world ||When your infant is carried, he should be oriented toward the carrying adult ||There are parenting mistakes that are harmless. When in doubt, ask your pediatrician ||Most newborns need eight to 12 feedings a day — about one feeding every two to three hours ||Ask your baby's doctor about vitamin D supplements for the baby, especially if you're breast-feeding ||Use each feeding as an opportunity to build your newborn's sense of security, trust and comfort. ||A great deal of body heat is lost through a bare head, so make sure your baby wears a hat if she will be in a cold environment ||Don't allow your pet on the couch while you are holding baby. This makes dogs bigger and taller in relation to your infant and may encourage aggression. ||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 should have 4-6 wet diapers per day. This is a great way to monitor if they're getting enough milk ||
Croup

Croup is a respiratory infection involving the voice area (larynx) and windpipe (trachea). It is usually caused by a virus, including some of the same viruses that cause a cold. Croup usually occurs in younger children—about age 4 or less. It can be scary because of the sound of the “barking” cough, one of the main symptoms. Although most children recover in a few days, often there is some difficulty breathing.

Symptoms

Your child may have symptoms of a cold (runny nose, sore throat, or cough) for a few days before the typical symptoms begin.

  • A “barking” cough is the most common symptom.
  • It usually involves hoarseness.
  • A harsh sound when breathing in is common. This is called stridor. This stridor can be mild or severe and cause difficulty breathing.
  • If there is a lot of difficulty breathing, the ribs may stick out and the chest may get sucked in with each breath. This type of breathing is called retraction.
  • Retractions can also occur where the neck meets the collar bones.
  • Fever may be present.

Symptoms, especially stridor, are worse when the child is upset or crying.

Symptoms are usually worse at night and last a few days, but should be gone within a week.
