Mothers Tips for Newborn Care

A newborn baby is priceless. They are also hard work for first time parents. Make sure your baby feels loved and safe. Always do what you feel is best for your child. People will give you tons of advice, about everything, but that does not mean that you have to follow it. You do what you feel is the best. Never forget this. You know your newborn better than anyone.

Your motherly instincts are usually right. The number one piece of advice I can give, is to never ever lay your baby on his or her stomach. This could result in Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, the leading cause of infant fatality. You should lay them on their back or side. This is what the doctors are recommending now.

Another thing I have learned to do is always keep gas drops nearby. Babies are prone to getting belly aches. And, this often causes alot of crankiness. And, my daughter’s doctor has always told me, anytime that I was concerned about her health at all, not to hesitate to bring her to the doctor’s office or the ER.

Usually as long as your baby is dry, warm, and fed he or she is usually content. Your newborn will let you know, when something is wrong with him or her. You will be able to distinguish for yourself the difference in their cries.

You will be amazed at how much you can learn from your newborn. You will be able to tell what kind of moods they are in, whether they are really sick or just wanting to get their way, and the difference between their cries. Your newborn is pretty crafty, even at such a young age. They know that if they cry, and you let them have something, that it will probably work on everything.

In closing, it may take a little while, but you will learn everything your little one needs. What they need most is love. You can do this, I know you can. Just let them know that you are there for them. Even though they can’t talk yet, they can sense your presence. There is also a magazine out that I subscribed to when I had my daughter. The name of it is Parents. You will also be able to find it at most stores. This magazine is full of helpful information. I love it. Do not feel ashamed or embarrassed. First time parents need all of the help they can get.
