Slow Weight Gain

What are the reasons attributed to weight gain?

Weight gain is one of the many signs of good health in a breastfeeding baby. Slow weight gain is sometimes called “failure to thrive” and happens when your infant is gaining weight at a slower rate than other children of the same age and sex.

It is not a disease, but could be a manifestation of medical, social, and/or environmental factors preventing a child from getting the calories they need to maintain a healthy rate of growth.

Sleeping problems

Sleeping Problems

Helping kids with sleeping problems

The saying “Sleep when your baby sleeps” is simply the best advice. If your baby is not eating, they are probably sleeping. Newborns log as many as 16 hours of sleep a day, but only in short bursts. The result? You are continuously alert, more tired, and exhausted. Even the best of us may begin to resent the severe lack of sleep. So, take naps together with the baby and go to bed early!

So, what if your infant has trouble sleeping?  Do whatever it takes. You can soothe, rock, or cuddle the baby to sleep. Allow your new-born fall asleep on your chest or in the car seat. “Don’t worry about bad habits yet because it is about survival. Your survival!”

Make a point of playing some tunes. Yes, soft music is likely to calm your baby.

Also, get the dad involved too. The dad who helped you through your pregnancy may sometimes seem at a loss now that baby is here. So, mom, hand the baby over sometimes and let the dad figure things out as well, just like you are doing.

Breast Feeding

Breast Feeding

Guidance for latching the baby

A mother nursing her baby is one of the most beautiful images nature could create. It is also one of the simplest activities and creates a stronger attachment. A mother’s milk gives the baby all the nutrients needed for the first six months and beyond. It is important to note that breastfeeding helps to protect your baby from infections and other diseases through strengthening their immunity.

For some women, the first few days or weeks of breastfeeding are a challenge. “Breastfeeding is natural, but it’s a practiced skill, almost an art form,” says Corky Harvey, R.N., M.S., a lactation consultant and co-owner of The Pump Station, a breastfeeding-support Centre in Santa Monica, Calif. “You could read a book about playing the flute and learn a lot about the instrument,” she explains, “but you won’t learn how to play the flute until you do it.” Breastfeeding is no different. As with learning to play a musical instrument, success comes from a combination of motivation, knowledge of essential skills, and constant practice.
