Guide to Make a Newborn a Good Night Sleeper

It gives parents immense pride as well as pleasure to get their newborn home for the very first time after their birth. However, due to their newborn’s sleep routine which is mostly random in the beginning parents may soon become impatient as their nights become sleepless.

A baby is said to be a newborn right from birth till the first 90 days or 3 months of his life. During these initial 3 months of the baby’s life, his sleep patterns will keep changing continuously and they will just not match their parents. First time parents of newborns generally discover that their baby is asleep for most part of the day sometimes even 18 hours, particularly in the first week or two after delivery. This sleep is however enjoyed in short slots of 3-4 hours at one time, be night or day.

But, parents can work towards inculcating good sleep habits in their newborns from as early as 6 weeks onward. Here are a few tips that parents can adopt.

Lengthening Wake Times – Parents who find that their little ones are sleeping for most part of the day can slowly train them to stay awake for longer stretches during the day so that they can sleep more during the night. Try to keep the baby busy during daytime by engaging him into various activities. These may include – like reading, talking to him, giving baby a light massage, taking him out for a short stroll till the nearby park. However, in between all this allow the baby to have his short nap times, otherwise the baby might become over-fidgety and over-restless at night that lead to a lot of commotion in the house.

Dressing Baby in Proper Nightwear – Babies often wake up in the middle of the night feeling either too cold or too hot. The right answer to these complications is an infant sleep sack. These sleep sacks for babies when worn on regular nighttime sleepwear help in bringing him comfortable slumber. Baby feels snug and secure to be able to sleep comfortably. Sleep Sacks also help regulate the body temperature so the baby doesn’t get overheat.

Teaching Baby Being Independent of Feeds and Rocking – Start
teaching the baby the art of sleeping on his own, although this might take months. This can be done by putting the baby drowsy in his crib or cot at almost the same time every day. In this way, the baby’s sleep cycle will start settling down and he will begin to associate his crib or cot to his sleep. Also, parents shouldn’t make their baby dependent on habits like being rocked or fed to sleep every night. If the baby remains independent of these daily routines he will fall asleep on his own if he gets up in the middle of the night.

A sleep sack can help your baby stay covered while sleeping
Until relatively recently, most parents would use blankets to keep their babies warm at night or during naps. However, research has shown that it is preferable to use baby sleeping bags or sleep sacks instead of loose blankets in the crib. In order to reduce the risk of SIDS or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, pediatricians recommend eliminating any loose bedding or toys that could accidentally cover baby’s face while he or she sleeps. Baby sleeping bags eliminate the need for loose blankets and are a better alternative. This is why the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using sleep sacks instead of blankets in the crib.

In addition to the safety issues with blankets, sleep sacks are also more convenient. Many parents complain that their baby kicks off his blanket at night and then wakes up feeling cold. A baby needs on average 16 hours of sleep per 24 hour period to thrive. Waking up at night due to temperature changes is a common problem and baby sleep sacks can help with this issue.

Baby sleeping bags can be either quilted or lighter weight depending on the season and the temperature of the nursery. With a blanket or a toddler quilt, baby won’t stay covered as he/she moves around while sleep sacks maintain baby at a constant temperature throughout the night.. These bags are available in different sizes and styles. They are sleeveless to enable babies to regulate their temperature (in a similar way to adults who usually sleep with their arms outside their quilt) and are available in a variety of colours, designs and styles.

Baby sleep sacks come in sizes up to 36 months. They are intended to be used by babies and toddlers that still sleep in a crib. Many two year olds move around a lot in their sleep and still don’t stay covered at night so the larger size 18-36m baby sleeping bags can solve this problem. Also wearing a sleep sack may discourage your baby from trying to climb out of the crib.

Baby sleeping bags can also be a good solution for camping with a baby and many parents bring them along for outdoor trips. Some sleep sacks carry a TOG rating. A tog of 0.5 is usually appropriate for a lightly air conditioned summer nursery or warmer winter homes (central heating). For chillier houses (nursery temperature 65-68 degrees Fahrenheit), a tog rating of 2.5 to 3 would be appropriate.
Baby sleeping bags replace loose objects in the crib and potentially dangerous blankets that can be kicked off. To know more and view latest designs please log on to

Going camping with a baby or toddler?

Family Camping Checkpoints...

Camping is a wonderful and inexpensive vacation option in the summer. Amazing camping places invite you for canoeing, hiking, adventure water sports and more. It is a great way to visit the country and create fantastic memories and strong bonds with friends. However, families with small children often wonder how enjoyable a camping trip will be with a baby and a toddler.

The answer to this question is that with the right equipment, a camping vacation could be just what you need after long winter months of being cooped up with small kids. In fact, have you ever noticed how your child seems happier the minute he/she is outside? A family camping trip may be exactly what you need.

First, you will need a good tent. You must be equipped with a polyethylene or vinyl tarp down so that the tent remains dry at the bottom. Next, have a thermo rest type mattress which acts as a great insulator. Make sure the tent stakes aren't made of low quality material and are strong and light like aluminium. The tent material must contain an air permeable roof covered by a rain fly.

Second, make sure that you talk to your doctor and bring all of the medication your kids could possibly need such as anti-fever medication and an antihistamine in the event of an allergic reaction.

Next question, how will baby sleep? Kids are often used to their sleeping environment and the concern is that they will refuse to sleep if they are no longer in their home crib. Luckily, kids often adapt better to camping because of the fresh air than a hotel room stay. As smaller kids kick off their blankets you should consider camping with a sleep sack or baby sleeping bag if you are not already using one. You can find ones big enough for children up to 3 years old. A quilted option is better an warmer than fleece. You may find you need a warmer one than the one you use at home. You should also get your child used to this new sleeping bag a few days before you leave on your trip.

Baby camping sleeping bags will keep your baby nice and toasty. Make sure zippers are high quality and also, make sure you don’t buy the camping sleepers for babies which come with a hood, which could be dangerous. You can get expert and pediatric support regarding standard sleep sacks for summers or winters. In fact the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the use of wearable blankets for your children from zero to three years of age.

Good luck, Happy Camping!

Motherhood – The Most Blessed Phase of Every Woman’s Life

Motherhood is one of the most beautiful and blessed phase of a woman’s life.  Every woman does not endure the potentiality to be a mother, the state of being a mother, and bear all the discomforts that a female comes heads-on who choose to be a mother.

Experts say that the more a woman stays happy and satisfied during pregnancy the more charming and healthy her newborn would be. However, in today’s hectic life this has become next to impossible, consequently some simple guidelines have been outlined by experts that a pregnant woman must follow in order to give birth to a healthy baby.

Apt care of your own self during pregnancy: A female who is pregnant should take ample care of her own self as it is not just her but also the little fetus that is slowly taking the shape of a baby that requires thorough care. A pregnant woman should take healthy and easily digestive food so as to avoid any episodes of feeling uncomfortable around her womb.

Visit the Doctor Regularly: A pregnant woman must visit her gynecologist on a regular basis, without giving it a miss or taking it lightly. All the medicines prescribed by the doctor should be taken as written in her prescription.

Take Least Stress: Although it is next to impossible with women becoming increasingly ambitious to leave their duties mid-way due to pregnancy, but, still pregnant women should give it a break and avoid stress as much as possible. Office work brings along office tensions which are not healthy for a pregnant woman. Therefore, pregnant women if possible should leave their office work and rest at home with maximum movement and exercise and enjoy their pregnancy. With many companies now offering work from home opportunities pregnant women can also select this option to give least stress to their body’s.

Wear Comfortable Outfits: Pregnancy brings along a huge change in a pregnant woman’s body size. As such outfits especially designed for pregnancy and that are flexible too are available in the market. Their purpose is to make her feel comfortable not just physically but also psychologically.
