Diaper Rash?!! I think my baby has it. I started using California baby diaper cream when I changed his diaper 5 minutes ago. Do I apply it every time we change his diaper? He goes through like 10 diapers a day. It's just so sad because he was crying today and he never cries. Of course tonight is my work holiday dinner so im leaving him (with pumped milk and my in-laws) for the first time tonight. He is 9 weeks old. Any advice would be helpful.
Tongue-tie 8 day old newborn diagnosed with tongue tie- was missed at hospital!- and has since developed jaundice. We had a procedure yesterday- to cut the skin below baby’s tongue- and was meant to see results immediately or within 24hours but 30 hours later and still nothing new! Feeds are a nightmare as baby cannot latch, so I’ve cracked nipples and baby doesn’t stay awake long enough to drain breasts. I’ve been pumping and giving him 3oz feeds with mixed results. He gags a lot and often refuses bottle in favour of nursing, which I do with the help of paracetamol and ibuprofen as the pain is excruciating! Anyone with experience of tongue tie? Was it resolved? I was hoping to EBF for a year or more, but this is proving very, very difficult.
Any tricks to get my newborn to nap in her bassinet/ rock and play for more than 30 minutes? Her eyes pop open almost 30 mins on the dot just about every time! I try once or twice a day and then I have her in the carrier on me for her other naps bc I know she’ll sleep 1-2.5 hours on me. I dont want her to get overtired! Will she be able to fall back asleep on her own with age or is there something I should be doing?
Have you dealt with an overtired newborn? How did you overcome? My little is 4 weeks old and sleeps during the day but seems overtired at night she won’t sleep and is super alert and fussy. We can’t put her down without her crying. And recommended things to try? Schedules on how to sleep during the day for a better night?
Is there a way to politely decline visitors? My LO was born 2 weeks ago and ever since then family has been wanting to come over. They have been here a few times but they are trying to come like once a week and I’m not feeling comfortable with that. I like to spend a lot of time alone and some people I just don’t feel comfortable having around her. Also how do I keep people that I don’t want around her away? They are family but I just get extreme anxiety with them around her and don’t even want them to hold her. They pick at her face and nails even after I said not to multiple times. I didn’t ever get ahold of them before she was born but now that she’s here they keep asking to come over. Help!
First time posting! We just had a baby girl 2 days ago and thinking about taking her home I’m concerned about monitoring while she is sleeping and we are either not in the room or sleeping ourselves. I’m a worrier, admittedly, and we have considered the owlet, but with the price point and reviews I have read I am feeling that may not be enough. What have you found to be the best for monitoring your baby/making sure everything is okay while they are sleeping?
Hi moms- I have a 2 month old who's been sleeping fairly consistently at night but doesn't start til around 1 or 1:30am. My husband believes now is the time to start training him to get into an earlier and more reliable schedule but I think he's too young and we should be thankful he's been able to create his own schedule at all. Anyone have any tips or thoughts on this and what is he right age to start? Also we have been sharing a bed most nights and while I'd like to continue with that, he does not and we each feel strongly about that. Has anyone else had this disagreement and come up with some kind of compromise you could share that somehow meets everyone's needs? Thanks much!!
Why is my two week old always wide awake at night? I was told that she’s supposed to be sleeping most of the time. Though this is the case during the day, she wakes up for a feeding at around 9pm and stay up sometimes till 12am. That’s almost 3 hours! She’s not crying or anything just wide awake! Can anyone relate to this??? Is this normal???
Any twin parents on here? I have boy/girl twins that are 19 days old today! Any tips, suggestions, fun facts? Everyone said get them on the same feeding schedule it will make life easier. But so far it seems harder. Especially at night. I don’t make dad stay up with us because they’re exclusively breast fed. No sense in us both being dead tired. I guess I was cocky when I was pregnant saying I wasn’t scared for the infant stage... I was scared for when they were toddlers and into everything. lol welllll boy was I wrong. This is a whole new level...
I’m a first time mom.. my son is 2 months and he holds his head pretty well.. however his head is constantly hanging just to one side I don’t understand why if I switch the side he sleeps on all the time and he normally sleeps on his stomach and he turns his head on his own.. is the fact that when he does relax his head or only rest to one side a problem or is that normal?
I have a 10 day old and we had to supplement her feeding with formula while breastfeeding because she was loosing weight. She has since gained some weight and showing very good signs in her feeding habits. With this context in mind, my question is do you really have to wake up a sleeping baby every 3 hours? Or can you let her sleep longer?
I will have a 2-week old infant on Thanksgiving. I certainly do not want to be playing "pass the baby" and if I go would baby-wear as much as possible I'm uneasy to go at all though because there will be four young children there and it's flu season. Of course, that's the in-law gathering on Wednesday, and I want to go to my family's gathering on Thursday because there won't be any kids, my sister will be in town, and my home is super close. Can I not justify this? What would you do? When do you feel comfortable taking your newborn to gatherings and when do you let other children visit? Thanks in advance!!!
