Tips For Choosing Baby Blanket   Fleece Baby Blanket Fleece is the most adroit blanket for babies. Its fabric is very facile and flexible to work on. The edges of the fleece blankets do not get shredded, that is why they don’t require a professional hand. Due to the presence of polyethylene terephthalate in fleece, some parents are concerned about the baby’s safety. If you are one of them, you can go for eco-friendly fleece which is made out of pure post consumer recycled plastic. Such fleece blankets are available in great sizes between 30” to 50”, according to the age and need of babies. These blankets generally have necessary blanket stitches and little embroidery with a contrasting color thread. Since the edges of these blankets do not demand professionalism, one can try out various creative designs to give them a nice finish apart from the straight ones. Scalloped edges are one of the options you can opt for.   Patched Baby Blanket If you want exclusive designs and intricate patchwork blanket for your baby, then patched baby blankets are best for you.

You can cut the fabric in square shape of 2”x2” in size and sew them together to get a larger square. These blankets are also available in different colors, sizes and shapes.   Stylish Baby Blanket If you don’t have time or not that creative to create the blankets mentioned above, then you can choose some of your favorite patterns and check out in the baby stores available in markets. You can also make a poncho for your baby out of the blanket you already have. All you have to do is to cut out a hole at the center of the blanket of the size of your baby’s head. An advantage of poncho is that you can keep it on the baby all the time, whether the baby is playing or sleeping. You can also create a smaller version of an adult snuggies. To make it, just attach sleeves to the blanket and cut out a hole at the center of the baby’s head size.

    An oral thermometer can be used over four years of age as they can put it under the tongue easily.   For taking rectal temperature, use digital rectal thermometer and apply petroleum jelly on it. Insert it one inch into the rectum and keep it there for about a minute or until the thermometer beeps. Remove the thermometer and note the reading. Babies may have a bowel moment just as you remove the thermometer from their rectum. Forehead strips are the easiest one to use on children and are easily available too but they are not trusted enough to get an exact reading. However, they are good for children who are a year old or older.   The best way to take a temperature in a baby is rectally. Rectal temperatures represent the body temperature most accurately too as the oral temperature may vary with the temperature of something the baby has just eaten or drunk.   Underarm temperature represents external body temperature, which may be lower than internal temperature and lead to false assumptions and diagnosis.   While some people may prefer taking ear temperature, it can be a little challenging to place the thermometer right to get a good reading. It may also be hurtful to children who have ear infections.

  Here are some of the ways to stop your toddler from biting.   We humans love to crave for attention and when it comes to toddlers, they are the stars in getting it. When toddlers discover the effects of biting and how it makes them the center of attention, they cannot resist the urge to keep repeating this act. This behaviour is seen especially when family members ignore them and cater to other responsibilities.   Yes, it is true that biting toddlers can be quite a nuisance. Nevertheless, every new parent should remember that they are only toddlers and most of them are unaware of their actions. You should keep in mind not to yell at them even if they have bitten a respected guest. The reason being that the situation will get all the more worse as they might bite back. Take action after the guest has left.   Keep a track on your toddler's biting behaviour. There could be several other causes too in regard this behaviour. If this behaviour continues after much effort of evading the habit, you need to seek a consultant for help.   Whenever your child bites another family member or a relative, do not directly approach him/her for this will simply reinforce his nasty behaviour. But, you can stop toddler biting by doing this trick. Simply walk towards the bitten victim and plant a soft kiss on the victim's cheeks or hug them tightly. This will immediately jitter the child and will help him stop biting others.   It is said that toddlers Learn to bite soon after they get their first set of milk teeth. New parents should know that once toddlers observe the reactions elicited by a nudge, they learn to experiment with their new set of teeth. It is natural that a victim of a bite immediately moves away to protect themselves from been bitten. Hence, these little toddlers use their teeth as a weapon for self-defense. It is however humane that every child resorts to biting or hitting when he/she feels the sense of insecurity of an external stimulus.   These are some of the reasons why toddlers bite and why you need to stop your toddler from biting.

  Being patient : When you have a shy toddler it is very essential to be patient with the child. If you lack the patience with your toddler who is shy, he/she will not come out of their shell bound shyness. Parents should not force their toddlers into situations which is beyond his/her comfort zone. There are indeed some children who are always going to be more cautious and reserved than the rest in their peer group. As a parent to the toddler you should allow your shy child the time to adjust to new people and situations. Do not ever make the mistake to criticise your child on being shy.   How to converse : To help your toddler overcome shyness, one of the basic things parents need to teach their young one is on how to converse with others. Teaching your toddler basic conversational skills will help him/her overcome shyness.   Social interaction : This is one of those situations where you can help your toddler to overcome her shyness. Social interactions are the best for them to speak out and not hide away in their skin. The first step in helping shy toddlers is being at home with them as it is a safe haven for shy children. You need to also provide a social interaction situation for your child at home. Organising play dates with one or two other children is the best way to start this social interaction.   Respect your child : Yes, it can be difficult to handle a toddler who is shy. But, the first thing you should be aware of as a parent is not to criticise your child on being shy in front of others. This stage of shyness for a toddler is temporary. So it is important to recognise and respect the toddlers feelings to take things slow when approaching new people and new circumstances. You should nurture your child's self-esteem and reassure him/her that you understand how she/he feels.   Labelling children : One mistake parents make when dealing with shy toddlers is referring them as a shy kid in front of others. You should know that calling your little one shy may make him feel as if something is wrong with him/her. Shyness is a personality trait, it is not a fault!

But fell sick due to the climate, water contamination, etc… Now as a parent.. what are you supposed to do ? Here are few tips for Parents Home with their Kids who are sick? We love our children. We take care of them all the time and even more when they are not well. You do give your kids medicines. But along with that a little extra to make them feel better. Set up different resting places. Most of your kids don't feel like being on the same bed throughout the day, they'll go crazy. So, set up a few different cozy spots for them -- their bed, the sofa / couch in the living room, and the diwan in the family room or a chair in the sit out. Limit TV and Video Games. Few minutes or 1 to 2 hrs of TV is fine when kids are sick. However, watching TV or playing video games may not give your child the healingrest they need. On the other hand, a bit of something calmer work-- like reading or coloring. In this case they're more likely to stop it abruptly when they get tired and go to sleep. Be prepared. Try to store coloring books, stickers, and small toys in a closet which your kids haven’t seen so far. Pull them out when your child gets sick. Just having something new to look will help distract. Set your own work aside. If you're a working parent who unexpectedly had to stay home to take care of your sick child, it is suggested to try not to multi-task too much. Its hard to take care of your child as well as work from home simultaneously. Trying to do both will just leave you tensed and stresssed.

  One of the main reasons is that, children like the view they get when their heads are at the same height at ours. During toddler hood, kids are very small and they seem to miss most of the things that happen or exist above their level of sight. For sure, all children feel comforted when being held. They feel soothed when they are held close to the heart. Kids tend to be more alert or afraid of new places or strangers. They feel safer and more secure in your arms. You are the world to them and they feel that no harm can come to them as long as you are with them. Babies demand to be carried because, until they're around 3 years old, that's the only way they can stay with you. Children feel that no attention is paid to them. When they're at your level and close to your ears, they can easily talk to you and you will easily listen to whatever they say.

  1. CHANGE IN BEHAVIOR : Wouldn't it be so much easier if babies could tell you what's bothering them? Unfortunately, it's not that simple. But, according to Southern Californina-based pediatrician and pediatric advisor for The Newborn Channel, Tanya Remer Altmann, MD, FAAP, paying attention to your baby's behavior can clue you in. "Sometimes the changes are subtle and sometimes more obvious, but any changes from your baby's normal routine may be a tip-off that something may not be right and that you should call your pediatrician," Altmann said. 2. HIGH TEMPERATURE : How high is too high when it comes to infant temperatures? Erin Taback, MD, founder of Oak Park Pediatrics in Oak Park, Illinois, advises new parents to call their pediatrician immediately during the newborn period if the baby has a fever of more than 100.4 degrees rectally. "This is considered an emergency," she said. 3. FREQUENT VOMITING : All of our experts agreed on this reason – if your little one is experiencing frequent vomiting, it's definitely time to call your pediatrician for help. 4. DIFFICULT BREATHING : Is your newborn experiencing rapid or difficult breathing? If so, Altmann recommends calling your pediatrician immediately. In addition, Lauren Crosby, MD, FAAP, of La Peer Pediatrics in Beverly Hills, California, advises new parents to watch for a cough, especially one that's constant or doesn't allow baby to rest. 5. LACK OF URINATION : How often is your baby urinating? According to Crosby, if your newborn isn't urinating at least every six hours, you should call your pediatrician.

  Children may develop food allergy by consuming a food directly or through nursing where they may become allergic to something moms may have eaten. To prevent food allergies, it is recommended to introduce solids gradually in a child’s diet between ages of four to six months and pay attention to any signs and symptoms that may manifest themselves when you introduce a particular food. One should start with rice cereal, followed by barley and oat cereal and them move on to yellow vegetables, fruits, green vegetables, meats and at last, wheat. Keep a gap of five to seven days before moving on to another food, so you can watch whether any symptoms such as incessant crying, rash, diarrhea or vomiting, develop during this period. If they do, you may call the doctor.

  It may not be easy to convince a child for walking on his own. But you may relieve yourself of the load of carrying a child constantly by: Offering to hold the hand of the child. Setting limits, like you'll carry the child for five minutes, but then he will walk for ten minutes on his own, or you will carry the child to the store but the child will have to walk inside it. If you're at home and the child just wants to be held to see what you're doing, you may make him sit on a high chair while you cook, so that he can watch you while he can be busy trying to pull the lid of a container, or doing something else to keep his hands busy. While walking, if the child feels that he's not able to see what you're seeing and thus, wants to be carried, you may try showing him interesting things at his level, such as flowers, dogs and other children.

  Well, if you thought that a newborn baby cannot hear, thing again!! The sense of hearing in an infant develops much before the birth of the baby. When in the womb, the baby hears his mother's heartbeats, the grumbling of her stomach and the sudden loud noises like a car blaring or a drum banging. Upon hearing these sudden loud sounds, baby also reacts by making a sudden audible jerk in the womb. Sounds in the womb play an important role in language learning of the baby. Thanks to these sounds, the baby after coming out into the world has a sense of hearing that is well-established. He recognizes his mother's voice and can differentiate it from the voices of other women, reacts to musical toys and responds favorably to classical music.   Babies can understand that someone is speaking a foreign language and differentiate between familiar and unfamiliar sounds. This ability helps the baby to learn and understand spoken languages later.   Classic music is a favorite with young babies, because they have smooth rhythmic melodies and pauses between sections. However, one year old kids, prefer traditional tunes and start differentiating sounds that are similar.   Gradually, babies start associating sounds with the experiences and give them a meaning. Thus, lullabies and white noise may soothe a baby; loud sounds may startle him while pleasant music may make him happy. Babies may also associate banging of door with arrival of parents or sounds of crying and wailing with something hurtful.   Babies love to listen to the sounds that are similar to ones they heard in the womb such as heartbeat of the mother and sounds of blood flow. You might wonder how, but babies recognize their mom's voice right from the time they are born and can differentiate it from the voices of other women and get comforted by it sooner.   Younger babies do not have their sense of hearing so well developed and they can hear high pitched sounds better. Thus, they respond better to cooing and baby talk and especially, when it comes from feminine voices.   If the mother listens to soft music, during the time when the baby is in the womb, the same type of music or humming will have positive effects on the child when he comes out into the world.   Musical toys play an important role in the hearing development of a child. It is mostly seen that music toys gather attention of the child. Once the child notices the play toy, he would move forward to reach for it. Music toys also help in the brain development of the child.

  We make ourselves get ready funkily if we are going out. But for your baby? oops! she can't dress up herself right. Here are few tips for your baby clothing.   Now that your baby is a toddler-if you're lucky-she won't need quite so many changes of clothing. Hopefully, by now, she's not having poop blowouts or spitting up on herself so much!   Hand-me-downs or clothing swaps are the way to go for toddler clothes! If you've got baby clothes in good condition, you may even be able to swap them for "new" toddler clothing at a consignment store. Or else organize a clothing swap with a local moms group.   It may seem like a no-brainer, but it's worth remembering to buy toddler clothes in a slightly larger size. Your kid is growing fast and you want her to wear her clothes more than once, right?   It's great to bargain hunt, but with some items of toddler clothing (a good winter jacket or a pair of jeans), it's worth paying extra for good quality that will last (especially if you plan on having more kids!)   Patterns are helpful when it comes to hiding stains, but basic colors are easier for mixing and matching wardrobe basics.   Stick with toddler clothes that are easy to get on and off since- believe it or not- your toddler will (hopefully) soon be dressing herself!   clothing tips for your baby, Baby clothing tips, tips for baby clothing, tips of dressing up your baby.

  we, the adults can tolerate pain and can handle them. But for newborns, absolutely can't. So here are the ways to ease their pain off. Have a look.   Sucking on a pacifier, bottle, or breast during or immediately after a procedure, such as a vaccination.   Skin-to-skin contact: holding your baby's bare body against your own.   Lidocaine: an over-the-counter numbing cream (such as EMLA) that's rubbed directly on skin. It takes 60 to 90 minutes to "set in" but can prevent pain during shots.   Subcutaneous ring block: Lidocaine injected under the skin before circumcision. Request it, says Verklan.   Acetaminophen after any procedure may help stave off pain -- if the doctor says it's okay.

  True toilet training means helping a child to recognize his own full bowel or bladder and then to do something about it-like telling his mother or going to the pot. He cannot begin to be trained until he can recognize his own 'need to go'. Here are the tips to train your baby.   Switch from nappies to underpants. Bare his bottom occasionally so that he notices his body functions. Watch him closely to pick up minute signals just before he needs to go sit on the potty. Check his timings closely and encourage him to sit on the potty when he is due for a bowel movement. Don't force him to do anything he doesn't want to do or the training sessions will be completely unproductive. Make a 'sh...' sound or turn on the tap to encourage the flow of urine. Remember, even if he reports after the event, it's a step in the right direction. Be an enthusiastic audience but not so enthusiastic that your toddler gets suspicious and uncooperative. Motivate him by explaining that sitting on potties is what older children do or by giving small rewards. Children like to imitate their parents, so can try explaining to him how mammy and papa sit at the potty. Show him how to check himself for dryness regularly. Make a habit of asking him regularly but casually whether he needs to go "potty". Be patient with relapses.
