Putting The Brakes On

Having a new baby in the house is not just an exciting time, it’s also a very stressful one. There are so many things to consider and do that can be overwhelming for anyone, let alone someone who hasn’t gone through it before.

The Best Way to Bath Your Baby

If you want your baby to enjoy bath time, the best way to do it is in a gentle, warm bath with no soap. You can also use a mild soap if you don’t want to go without it.

The key is to make sure you rinse them well and get all of the soap off of their skin.

How to Handle Colic, Reflux, and Other Baby Ailments

If you have a baby in the house, chances are they’re going to get sick at some point. But there are many ways to keep your baby healthy and happy while they’re young.

Colic, reflux, and other common ailments can be tough for any parent to handle.

One way of dealing with colic is to try swaddling or using a pacifier. Swaddling babies helps them self-soothe because the snugness mimic’s the feeling of being in the womb. A pacifier can also be helpful because it helps draw out excess air that might not have been expelled during a feed–helping your baby feel better faster.
