times, but you will likely not have a fixed schedule without deviations here and there. The following is especially helpful for stay-at-home moms:
Feeding is the main component to child care – how it is done, when it is done and where it is done all make a big difference to the effective growth of your child.

as this could be hazardous to your health.
New parents are usually concerned about their baby’s sleeping habits and safety, as they should be, but there are a few easy tips to follow to help make this so much easier and safer for your baby, while giving the parents some peace as well! Newborns will sleep for about 16 hours per day, usually
in sessions of 3 or 4 hours at a time, however, in some newborns sleep must be encouraged. There are some easy, surefire ways to encourage sleep in a newborn, like reducing brain stimulation close to bed time at night. It would be wise, for instance, to bathe your baby every night right before bed time.

Singing to your baby in soothing tones is an old fasioned, but effective way to put your baby to sleep peacefully. When putting your child to sleep, always remember to let them lie on their backs.
Make sure there is nothing in their crib that could risk SIDS – blankets, stuffed animals, bedding or drapes could suffocate your baby.

Even after your second or third baby, no one ever gets used to it and certainly nobody ever grows to enjoy it. Remember to always stop and take a breath when you feel you are getting a little too frustrated with your newborn.

Sitting in a rocking chair, singing to your baby and even wrapping them in a blanket could calm your baby faster than you think. It is important that your baby can feel that you are calm when soothing them. They do adapt your serenity easier knowing that everything is tranquil. Holding your infant close against you is always also a good rule of thumb, because making them feel safe should instantly calm them too. This is the bottom line to calming baby.
Some women may feel alone in raising a newborn. Even if mothers are not single, all the physical stress and emotional strain put on them could alienate and isolate them from everyday pleasures. It is always important to know that you are never alone, going through this.

Support groups on- and offline are also beneficial to have on hand frequently, along with your
doctor or health care provider. No mom is perfect and all babies are unique and individual people. They all need different treatment, especially special needs babies.
All children develop at their own rate and as long as you take care of them and love them, everything should mostly progress at its own rate. Relax, have fun with baby, and when the panic strikes, remember to ease into it. you will be fine.
