How to make sure you buy top rated baby swings

No Comments

Here are a few shopping tips that will help ensure you buy only the top rated baby swings:

Does your baby like the swing?

If you don’t know someone who already has a swing which you can try out then take your baby to the store with you and have a trial run. Don’t forget to take some batteries along as not all floor models will be ready to go. The reaction of your baby to the various swings will certainly make it easier for you to find out which one is the best choice.

Full sized or portable

This is a very important decision as well. Are you okay moving a full sized swing from one room to another time and time again? Are you even going to be able to take it with you for road trips? Travel swings don’t take up as much space. So if you are planning multiple trips for the foreseeable future, these swings are the best bet for you. The only downside with portable swings is that you will have to bend a little while putting your baby in the swing and taking them out. Doing this often is not going to be the most comfortable thing in the world.

5-point harness

All full sized swings come with restraining systems. Some of them will come with 5 point harness systems which are the best since it doesn’t allow your baby to climb or fall out of the seat. This is something that can happen more often that you may imagine. Travel swings do not have trays with them but do have safety harnesses. You may think that a 3 point harness is good enough but the fact of the matter is that it isn’t. Read More

But, there is one thing to remember and that is when you have a baby that is crying all the time, chances are that there is something really bothering them.

No Comments

When you have a baby, there is a lot of information that you will need to get your head around very quickly, and much of it has changed from the time you were a child yourself.

The term “swaddling a baby” really means just bundling them up tight – but not too tight! – in a blanket. If this sounds warm and comfortable for you, then imagine how it must feel for a newborn baby – they love it.

Over the years, mothers and experts alike have gone back and forth about whether a baby should sleep on his or her back or stomach. Babies appear to be more comfortable on their stomach, but then you have to worry about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

How to Get Pregnant with a Boy Baby: A 30 Day Plan

No Comments

There are actually some things that you can do to tip the scales in your favor when choosing the sex of your child.

Probably the best-known method for gender selection is the Shettles method which focuses on timing intercourse at the right time of the month, and while this is a good method, there are plenty of other things that you can do to help to conceive a boy baby naturally as well.

So I’ve put together some of the best tips and tricks on how to get pregnant with a boy and laid them out in an easy to follow 30 Day Plan.

Before You Start

This plan will help you increase the odds of having a boy but of course, there are no guarantees. If you are meant to have a girl, then it’s up to fate/god/the universe (whatever you believe in).

Also, this plan assumes that you are ovulating correctly, both you and your partner are healthy, and you have no history of infertility.

It also assumes that you ovulate on day 14 which as you probably already know is only the average day of ovulation. Please adjust the plan accordingly if you ovulate before or after this. If you don’t know when you ovulate, then I recommend charting for a month or two, or using ovulation predictor kits (OPK’s) to determine your ovulation day. Read More

Tips to get Your Baby to Latch On

No Comments

Breastfeeding looks easy, mums just whip up their tops up and the baby gets her food – right? Wrong! While breastfeeding is very easy, getting started, getting your baby to latch on and feeding in the correct position is incredibly hard. The good news is, once you’ve mastered the latch and your positioning, breastfeeding will become as easy as eating a whole packet of biscuits!

First things first

Your baby’s face is specially designed for breastfeeding. Her little turned up nose and receding chin means she can feed happily and breath at the same time, so never worry that she cannot breathe. If she can’t she will pull away from feeding. If your baby’s nose seems to be blocked by your breast, change your positioning slightly to see if that helps or move your breast so that your baby has a clear airway. Read More

Meningitis: How to Spot The Signs

No Comments

Babies and young children are more susceptible than adults to illness and disease because their immune systems are still forming.

Due to this vulnerability, meningitis is more prevalent amongst little ones. As a parent, it is important to understand the warning signs and find ways to protect both you and your child against meningitis.

Listeriosis: what is it?

Mums-to-be are at a higher risk of contracting listeriosis, a bacterial infection that can lead to meningitis. Listeriosis is not usually harmful to pregnant women and can feel like a mild flu case with body aches and a high temperature. However, it can be dangerous for an unborn baby if passed on to him from the mother. The bacteria can be found in food but will usually be killed if cooked or reheated thoroughly. Though the chance of being infected by this disease as a pregnant mum is very small – about one in every 20,000 pregnant women will be affected – it is important to go to your GP if you suspect an infection. Listeriosis can be detected by your GP through a blood or urine test. Read More
