Parents of a new born baby are overwhelmed and they are very happy with the new addition to their family. However, having a baby means a lot of responsibility because the baby needs to be cared for in every way.
Every baby’s parents are different and each one of them has their own capabilities. Nonetheless, parents should not lose the sight of their priorities once the baby is home. They need to work towards making their life easier.
An effective way of parenting is to build in sleep hours for the baby and you so that both are well rested. If a baby does not rest well it does not eat well and also is crankier. Also, if you are stressed out, it gets transferred to the baby and both the mother and child will have a tough time. Try sticking to the baby’s routine even when you are not at home. Also, ensure that you inculcate an early bed time for you and the child. If the child is awake for a long time in the nights then it will feed ad odd hours and that develops into irregular eating habits later.
Another area you should concentrate is feeding habits. Make sure your child has a good first and last meal every single day. Having a heavier last meal ensures that the child sleeps longer and also when the child wakes up hungry in the morning give the baby a heavy meal. As the baby grows the sleeping schedule keeps changing and you need to plan the feeding times accordingly.
