Chat away to your baby

Chat away to your baby

Whatever you are doing – nappy changing, going around the shops, tracking chores, tell your baby what’s going on. And if you are reading while breastfeeding, why not read aloud? The intonation of your voice and your speech patterns will be fascinating to your young baby.

Don’t be surprised! All little boys fiddle with their willies. Gone (thank goddness) are the days when outraged parents punished this terrible “sin”. But there is nothing wrong with telling children not to fiddle in company, just as you might tell them not to eat with their mouths open or not to wipe their noses on their sleeves.

Keep toddlers close when you go out to eat. Kids crawling underfoot and waiters with trays of hot food and drinks make a poor combination.

Rein them in. Two years old don’t think leading reins are demeaning if a toddler is an uncertain walker, or likely to wander off a run away, they are essential. Choose harness style reins rather than a wrist strap as these are more comfortable and offer better security.

Take heart. Having a new baby is an emotional challenge for both parents. Accept that you may not get on with your partner perfectly all the time, and try to take the occasional spat in your stride.

If you are planning to have your newborn photo shoot with me, please try to book me while you are still pregnant, because newborn baby shoot is ideal to be done within 10days after they born.

Newborn Baby Tips – Share your baby

Newborn Baby Tips – Share your baby

Let your baby be held by other people. Babies who get liberally passed around tend to be less clingy and more ease when looked after by others. Moreover, if other people take a turn, you can take a break.

Position the buggy so that, when stationary, it has its back to the sun or oncoming wind, is as far as possible from exhaust emissions and gives the baby or toddler a reasonable view of what is going on.

Positions car seats and bouncing chairs on the floor where there is no danger of them failing a high surface if they shift with the baby’s movement.

Treasure little tootsies. Babies bones are soft and malleable so should not be restricted by footwear. More ever, there are masses of balance receptors in the soles of the feet. When learning to walk, a child should ideally be barefoot, although this is not alwaysparactical. Until your baby is walking unaided, let them wear soft baby socks or booties that have ample space around the toes. First shoes must be fitted properly and only worn outdoors. When your child is inside, revert to socks and booties.

For your photo shoot, I can organise a professional stylist on the day, so your babies and children would look extra cute!

Newborn Baby Tips – Outdoor 2

Newborn Baby Tips – Outdoor 2

Make a soft nest around a wobbly baby who’s just learning to sit up.
Pack pillows, quilts, and the like snugly around their bottom so that any tumbles will be
cushioned. Stick around to avert any danger of smothering.

Massage your Baby. Fretful can be soothed and calmed by gentle caresses.
Lie your baby on a soft surface in a quiet, warm room, . Gently, using a little olive or baby oil, smooth your hands along the length of their arms, legs and back.

Stroking their skin as if stroking a cat. Avoid any vigorous massage movements.

Ask for what you need. If people enquire what you would like for your new baby, do make suggestions. If you don’t know what you want, you can always ask them to purchase our GIFT CERTIFICATE for your photo shoot with us.

Buy neutral colours. If all the clothes for your baby are in gender-specific colours and styles, you wont be able to reuse the if your next child is of a different sex. Opt for gender neutrals such as green, yellow, red, orange, brown cream and white.

Don’t dress to impress. Babies and toddlers look cute in dresses but they can be highly impractical.
Babies get them in a twist, crawlers kneel on them, cruises trip on them and toddlers catch them on things. Put one on, take a photograph (or let us to take photos!) then take it off again!

Keep a packed changing bag at the front door so that you can go out with the baby at short notice.
Bags that are like big sacks aren’t ideal as you have to rummage about in them every time you change your baby. Rather, choose bags with compartments – ideally with see-through pockets, like make-up artists’ bags – so that what you need it readily to hand.

Have a pop-up cot for travels and visits. A pop-up cot is small, like a carrycot. Made of flimsy nylon on a white frame, it twists flat, then literally pops into thee dimensions when taken out of its bag.
If you take it with you when you are out and about, you can settle your baby down almost anywhere for s comfortable, flat on the back sleep.

Have baby “stops”. In each of the rooms you use most frequently, have a soft, safe place where you can lie or sit your baby down out of harm’s way.

Top Tips Breast-Feeding 2

Steer clear of eating citrus fruits and curry, and avoid caffeine and other stimulants if your
breast-feeding baby is unusually wake or colicky.

Lean back to breast-feeding if your milk is coming out too quickly for your baby to swallow comfortably.

Wear a practical top for breast-feeding – either loose fitting one than can be lifted up or a nursing top with openings for feeding. Button-up tops and shirts that you have to open down the middle tend to be much more revealing.

Buy a breast pump only if you know it’s a really good one. Using a poorly designed hand pump can be very demoralising. Ask your friends and family members for their recommendations and talk to your health visitor or contact a breast-feeding support woman find that they have greater success with an electric pump. There are pricey, but can often be hired.

Start to express milk while your baby is still a few weeks old and gradually introduce the occasionalfeed in a bottle.

Top Tips Breast-feeding

Top Tips Breast-feeding

Learn about breast-feeding while you are pregnant.
If possible, get advice and tips from recent mothers and if you go to an antenatal group,
ask questions so as to prepare yourself to give breast-feeding your best shot.

Don’t be put off breast-feeding by well-meaning people who tell you that you will drained of energy,
have no time to yourself and have your freedom severely limited. Although there is a grain of truth in these arguments, the bottom line is that breast ilk is the ideal foodstuff for your baby, it helps get your body back to it’s pre-pregnant state and it is free, portable and always available.

Unless there is a good reason to use formula, stick with breast milk. Even a month of exclusive breast-feeding will benefit your child’s immune system, brain development and long-term health.

Mixed feeding, where breast milk is supplemented by formula, should be delayed for as long as possible, particularly when babies are born into a family with a history of eczema, asthma or hay fever.

If you feel that breast-feeding isn’t working for you, consult your doctor, midwife or health visitor before you stop: they may be able to offer you the support and backup you need.

If you are planing to have your newborn photo session done, please book us while you are still pregnant!
