Nothing prepares you for parenting. You can read all the books ever written, watch all the online tutorials available and speak to as many moms as you can find, but nothing prepares you for parenting. It’s amazing, terrifying, energising and exhausting in equal measure.
Nothing is quite as disconcerting for new moms as nighttime. The first time you lay your little one down to sleep at night chances are you’re going to get almost zero sleep yourself. You will be so enchanting by their tiny snuffling snores and so petrified that something may happen in the night that causes them harm that you will sleep with one eye open.
Is your baby rubbing face while sleeping? If you're a new parent, you may often feel clueless when it comes to what your little one wants and needs. All the little things your baby does can look intimidating, especially if they seem troubling and you don't know what they mean. This can get very frustrating if you don't figure out what to do.
A common issue that parents face is when babies rub their face while sleeping. This can cause your baby to get restless and even wake up because of it. There can be many reasons why babies do this. These reasons can be simple and something more serious can be causing them.
To be able to deal with the problem, then you need to learn what is causing your baby to rub his/her face. Read on to learn all about this concern and whether you should be worried about it.
It's the middle of the night and you’re exhausted, but your little nugget has woken up hungry. The problem is, as soon as they are comfortably latched (to nipple or bottle), they drift off to sleep. You know that if you let them sleep, they'll only wake up again wanting food. But how do you keep that sleepy baby awake long enough to fill their little tum?
One of the most frustrating situations that parents may face is figuring out how to get an overtired baby to sleep. Exhausted or overtired babies fuss and cry, preventing them from relaxing their bodies. When an overtired baby finally goes to sleep, she is likely to wake up sooner than normal, finding it even harder to sleep again. This may make you feel confused as to what exactly you should do to help your little one relax and fall back to sleep.
“Why is my baby rolling over in sleep and waking up crying?” This is one of the common questions of most parents as their infants figure out how to roll over.
This usually happens at around 4 to 6 months of age. Although watching your baby develop new skills is very exciting, many of us feel frustrated when our babies roll during sleep and cry. This may happen throughout the night and may go on for weeks. Does it mean that she’s not getting enough sleep? How do we cope with the rolling phase?
A cry pulls you from the sweet arms of slumber. You roll over and look at the clock. It's 3 am and your little one is up again. For the fifth time in just as many hours.
There's no doubt that parenting has its challenges, and sleepless nights just so happens to be one of them. But, what do you do when your 4 month old waking every hour? How can you possibly make it through the following day, much less the following week when baby makes a repeat performance?
Safety is a number one priority for every parent and most importantly when a baby is asleep. Every parent would give up anything to ensure that an infant grows to adulthood in perfect health and utmost security.
Unfortunately, this turns out not to be the case as some babies die when still young and under the care of their parents. This is so because many parents do not understand causes of sudden infant death syndrome or ways on how it could be prevented.
However, in the present day world, there is an awareness that has been created as a way of educating parents on how to take care of their young ones and reduce infant deaths thanks to the internet. This article highlights important guidelines to ensure that babies sleep safely.
You're not asking for much, not even necessarily 8 hours. You just want to get your baby to show some sign of a sleep schedule or nap long enough that’ll allow you to brush your teeth.
