How do I give my baby a bottle?

How do I give my baby a bottle?

on Tuesday, 29 April 2014. Posted in Feed, 6 Months, 7 Months, 8 Months, 9 Months, 10 Months, 11 Months, 1 Year, 18 Months, 2 Year

Before you start to feed, check the temperature and flow of the milk in the bottle to avoid any nasty surprises. The tightness of the bottle's cap will affect the milk flow - the tighter the cap, the slower the flow.

Hold your baby while you feed her. Don't be tempted to prop her up with the bottle - not only could she choke but she needs time to be held.

Get comfortable and support your baby's head and neck. If your baby's head is in the crook of your arm, you will be able to comfortably support and feed her. Tilt the bottle so that the teat fills with milk before offering the bottle to avoid your baby sucking air.

Move the teat over her lips. Doing this will start her sucking reflex.

Try for a burp. Take a break halfway though the bottle so that you can burp your baby. If you don't get a burp, or she gets, upset, continue with the feed. Some babies want the whole bottle at once!

Regardless of the way she is fed - breast or bottle - your baby needs to be held and cuddled, so make sure that you hold always hold her during bottle feeds so that you can both enjoy your close time together.

Why isn’t my baby sleeping well?

on Tuesday, 29 April 2014. Posted in Newborn, Weeks 1-6, Sleep, Weeks 6-12, 3 Months, 4 Months, 5 Months, 6 Months, 7 Months, 8 Months, 9 Months, 10 Months, 11 Months, 1 Year

There are several reasons why your child isn't sleeping well - she may be affected by one of them, by a combination of several or all of them!

No Consistent Bedtime Routine

Though most parents know a bedtime routine is a good idea, it is hard to be consistent, either because there's too much to do or because your child has so much energy that it's hard to slow her down. Still, a predictable wind-down routine is one of the most important tools your child needs to sleep well.

• Physical activity should come before the routine
• Should last 15 to 60 minutes at nighttime, and about 10 to 15 minutes before a nap
• Do routine in the same room where your child sleeps
• Do approximately the same activities each time in the same order

Your Child Needs You to Fall Asleep

It's the most natural thing in the world to rock or feed your child to sleep, but doing this doesn't help him stay asleep all night - many children who fall asleep this way awaken repeatedly. These disruptions are often caused at least partially by their dependence on certain conditions, or "sleep associations" - anything your child associates with falling asleep, including being held, rocking, sucking or falling asleep with a parent. Throughout the night, your child drifts into lighter sleep phases to check out her environment. During these "partial arousals," she's not fully conscious-and as long as nothing has changed significantly since she fell asleep, she returns to deeper sleep. But for many children, if something is different, this raises a red flag and she will need you to recreate the same conditions that were present when she fell asleep in the first place. Not all associations are bad; what's important is that your child can recreate them on his own and put himself back to sleep.

Poor Sleep Environment

Your child's environment plays a very important role in her ability to sleep well. She needs to be protected from disruptions that can prevent her from settling to sleep, sleeping deeply, and sleeping for the right length of time.

• Your child's cot or bed should be all about sleep, and whatever doesn't contribute to sleep should go

• On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being dark, your child's room should be an 8 or 9

• Protect your child from distracting sounds with white noise. You can use a fan, air purifier, or white noise machine
• Dress children in something warm enough to protect them without a blanket

Misusing Sleep Aids

Sleep aids include pacifiers, swaddling, music and blankies. Although some sleep aids lead to sleep associations, not all are detrimental. What's important is that you know when they are appropriate and when they interfere with sleep.

Mistimed Sleep Schedule

Allowing your child to stay up until he seems tired is one of the surest ways to guarantee a bumpy night of sleep. One reason is that your child will probably wake early, is due to morning light; the other is that your child will likely become overtired. For children of every age, there are optimal "sleep windows" in which it is easiest to drift off into sleep. If your child goes too far past this window, his body becomes stressed and produces the hormone cortisol, which acts as a stimulant, like caffeine and can cause your child to act "wired" or appear to get a second wind.

Most children do well with a bedtime between 7:00 and 8:00 PM; 8:30 is the latest bedtime we recommend up to age 10. Choosing a consistent bedtime doesn't mean that your child won't ever be able to stay up late for a special occasion or a family night out; if he does stay up late one night, try to put him down on time the next. Most children need at least 11 hours of sleep to function well. And bedtime is the time when your child is in her cot or bed with the lights out.

Limit Testing

Your child may not want to go to sleep because he doesn't want to miss the action, and your older child wants more control than he did as a baby. Put the two together, and you have a child who will do everything he can to stall and prolong bedtime. We hear stories from parents about their children's award-winning performances as they try to delay bedtime. Pulling out all the stops, they act as though they're in the Sahara dying for water or insist that they'll waste away in the middle of the night unless they have a bedtime snack. If your child isn't highly verbal yet, she may simply tantrum when you try to put her to sleep. Either way, the drama can be intense and almost always gets a reaction from parents. It can be tempting to give in to the demands of your adorable toddler, but delaying bedtime isn't good for either of you.

Night Noshing

To be successful in learning how to sleep your child needs to have one clear, consistent response to his night wakings. If you sometimes feed him when he cries and sometimes do not, he'll become confused and will cry longer and harder overall. You may be wondering how your baby will make it all the way through the night without feeding. You have every reason to be concerned about this if your child is used to eating at night, but by the time a baby is 5 months old and weighs 15 pounds, she should be able to sleep all night without a feed. If you have a toddler who is growing well, he is perfectly capable of taking in all of the necessary calories and hydration during the day.

Should I use a dummy (or pacifier)?

on Tuesday, 29 April 2014. Posted in Sleep, 6 Months, 7 Months, 8 Months, 9 Months, 10 Months, 11 Months, 1 Year, 18 Months, 2 Year, Toddler, Preschooler

An attachment to a dummy or blankie can be a cause for consternation but are these creature comforts doing any real damage to your little darling? It's a funny old thing that you've no doubt experienced yourself. As soon as you become a parent (actually as soon as you break the news that you're expecting) the advice starts. One of the most contentious aspects relates to comfort objects - blankies, special toys and most divisive of all - the dummy. If it works for you, then ignore the naysayers.

What can I expect from my baby in month 12?

on Tuesday, 29 April 2014. Posted in 1 Year

Congratulations! You and your baby have been through one year of growing and learning. Your baby is developing very quickly into a unique and remarkable individual. And, it's time for some significant physical changes.

Bottle-weaning tips

If you've been bottle-feeding, your baby will have become very comfortable with the bottle. It's time to start guiding him away from the bottle and onto other forms of food and drink. Here are some ideas:
Offer the cup instead of the morning and evening bottles. Do not let your baby carry the bottle around with her. Limit the places she can have it (on your lap, at the table).

Do not introduce new beverages in a sippy cup. Let her drink only breast milk or baby formula. Give her a snack before bedtime. It could help her get to sleep. Let her spend time with her blanket or favorite special stuffed animal before bedtime, instead of with the bottle.

Developing the brain and social skills

Your baby is now beginning to become aware of social settings, which will help her brain development. Try these tips:

  • Introduce her to brief playdates to practice playing in groups. There will not be much interactive playing yet, but it will help her get used to the playing environment.
  • Show her how to pull a pull toy. To prevent choking, put away toys with long strings when you cannot watch your baby play.
  • Read a picture book with her and get her to identify what you see on each page to help her learn new words and objects.

Typical 12-month-old baby milestones

These milestones are generally seen around the 12-month milestone. Don't worry if you don't see them yet; all babies develop at different rates.

By the end of 12 months, most babies will take the first solo step, say two words other than ‘mama’ and ‘dada’, make "baby-talk" sentences, imitate your actions and drink from a cup without help.

You'll probably notice a sharp drop in your toddler's appetite after his first birthday. Suddenly he's picky about what he eats, turns his head away after just a few bites, or resists coming to the table at mealtimes. It may seem as if he should be eating more now that he's so active, but there's a good reason for the change. His growth rate has slowed, and he really doesn't require as much food now.

Your toddler needs about 1,000 calories a day to meet his needs for growth, energy, and good nutrition. If you've ever been on a 1,000-calorie diet, you know it's not a lot of food. But your child will do just fine with it, divided among three small meals and two snacks a day. Don't count on his always eating it that way, however, because the eating habits of toddlers are erratic and unpredictable from one day to the next. He may eat everything in sight at breakfast but almost nothing else for the rest of the day. Or he may eat only his favorite food for three days in a row, and then reject it entirely. Or he may eat 1,000 calories one day, but then eat noticeably more or less on the subsequent day or two. Your child's needs will vary, depending on his activity level, his growth rate, and his metabolism.

As a general rule, it's a real mistake to turn mealtimes into sparring matches to get him to eat a balanced diet. He's not rejecting you when he turns down the food you prepared, so don't take it personally. Besides, the harder you push him to eat, the less likely he is to comply. Instead, offer him a selection of nutritious foods at each sitting, and let him choose what he wants. Vary the tastes and consistencies as much as you can.

If he rejects everything, you might try saving the plate for later when he's hungry. However, don't allow him to fill up on cookies or sweets after refusing his meal, since that will just fuel his interest in empty-calorie foods (those that are high in calories but relatively low in important nutrients, such as vitamins and minerals) and diminish his appetite for nutritious ones. Hard as it may be to believe, your child's diet will balance out over several days if you make a range of wholesome foods available and don't pressure him to eat a particular one at any given time.

Your toddler needs foods from the same four basic nutrition groups that you do:

  • Meat, fish, poultry, eggs
  • Dairy products
  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Cereal grains, potatoes, rice, breads, pasta

When planning your child's menu, remember that cholesterol and other fats are very important for his normal growth and development, so they should not be restricted during this period. Babies and young toddlers should get about half of their calories from fat. You can gradually decrease the fat consumption once your child has reached the age of two (lowering it to about one-third of daily calories by ages four to five). While you should not lose sight of the fact that childhood obesity is a growing problem, youngsters in the second year of life need dietary fat. If you keep your child's caloric intake at about 1,000 calories a day, you shouldn't have to worry about overfeeding him and putting him at risk of gaining too much weight.

By his first birthday, your child should be able to handle most of the foods you serve the rest of the family—but with a few precautions. First, be sure the food is cool enough so that it won't burn his mouth. Test the temperature yourself, because he'll dig in without considering the heat. Also, don't give him foods that are heavily spiced, salted, buttered, or sweetened. These additions prevent your child from experiencing the natural taste of foods, and they may be harmful to his long-term good health.

Young children seem to be more sensitive than adults to these flavorings and may reject heavily spiced foods.

Your little one can still choke on chunks of food that are large enough to plug his airway. Keep in mind that children don't learn to chew with a grinding motion until they're about four years old. In his second year of life, make sure anything you give him is mashed or cut into small, easily chewable pieces. Never offer him peanuts, whole grapes, cherry tomatoes (unless they're cut in quarters), carrots, seeds (i.e., processed pumpkin or sunflower seeds), whole or large sections of hot dogs, meat sticks, or hard candies (including jelly beans or gummy bears), or chunks of peanut butter (it's fine to thinly spread peanut butter on a cracker or bread). Hot dogs and carrots in particular should be quartered lengthwise and then sliced into small pieces. Also make sure your toddler eats only while seated and supervised by an adult. Although he may want to do everything at once, "eating on the run" or while talking increases his risk of choking. Teach him as early as possible to finish a mouthful prior to speaking.

By his first birthday or soon thereafter, your toddler should drink his liquids from a cup. He'll need less milk now, since he'll get most of his calories from solid foods.

What if my baby is choking when feeding on solids?

What if my baby is choking when feeding on solids?

on Tuesday, 29 April 2014. Posted in Feed, 8 Months, 9 Months, 10 Months, 11 Months, 1 Year, 18 Months, 2 Year, Toddler

Choking is a real danger because babies have small airways and can't chew well. Avoid small hard foods such as popcorn and ensure your baby sits down to eat.

According to St John, if your baby (under one) starts choking and can't breathe take these steps:

  1. Lie him face down on your lap and using the heel of one hand, give up to five back blows firmly (but gently to avoid physical injury) between the shoulder blades. Make sure you support the head.
  1. If the object doesn't come out, turn him face up across your lap. Put middle and index fingers in the centre of his breastbone, about one finger breadth below his nipples. Give five quick chest thrusts. Alternate between five back blows and five chest thrusts until the object is dislodged.
  1. If he is unresponsive, start chest compressions and have someone call 111. Turn him on his back on any flat surface or your lap. Put two fingers of one hand at the centre of his chest, about one finger breadth below the nipples. Push down hard and fast 30 times (to one third of chest depth). Once you have done 30 compressions breathe into his mouth twice to see the chest rise. Continue the cycle of 30 chest compressions and two breaths until the ambulance arrives.
