Gifts for baby

Traditionally people knit for babies – bootees, hats, matinee jackets, dresses and dungarees. All these things are lovely, and for a summer baby you can add other things.

Summer time is the time to look at organic and cotton items – these will be free from any chemicals and will keep cooler breezes off the baby while allowing them to keep cool in the heat.

Organic cotton blankets and cotton shawls are ideal for summertime as a baby can be wrapped up or be allowed to lie on the ground on their own cotton blanket and enjoy the feel of summer air around them. Wearing an organic cotton bodysuit as well makes sure that your baby is comfortable and kept warm, but not too warm.

Keep an eye on your baby in the heat to make sure that they are not overheating – if they feel very hot and sweaty then you could undo some of the clothes and allow the air over them – of course with small babies there is always another side and you also have to make sure they don’t get chilled.

And always, babies must be kept out of the heat of the sun as their tender skin can be seriously sunburnt. A cotton shawl or blanket can even be useful here to make a quick sunshade if needed.

Don’t worry

Once you are at home with your new baby, it is inevitable that worry will creep in. You are starting a whole new way of life and it would be strange if this didn’t cause anxiety. All new parents, both mums and dads worry about how their baby is when they are sleeping – having to check that they are still ok is a natural part of being a new parent. Worrying about their feeding – are they having enough or too much is also standard for new parents. Small babies depend entirely on their parents but can’t explain anything, so new parents spend a lot of time learning to understand their new baby.

The other side of the coin is that you will discover new things about yourself that you never imagined. As you face the demands the baby makes, so you find that you are taking on the responsibilities that seemed so daunting at first. Learning is a natural human function and you will be learning from your baby as much as the baby is learning about the world they have arrived in.

You have the advantage over the baby as well that you can ask other people for help and explain to them what you are finding difficult, so you can get advice from relatives and friends who will also help by bringing all sorts of baby gifts for the child.

And the biggest thing you will discover is how great your capacity to love is, there is nothing like a baby to bring this out.

Musical babies

July 28, 2009 — Category: Baby Ideas — Written by Kelly

It’s a lovely idea that you can have a calm baby simply by playing them classical music – is it really that easy?

Well, it may not be quite that easy, but there is evidence that even before they are born, babies can hear music and may be calmed by hearing familiar, gentle classical music. It’s certainly true that some schools have found that young children are quieter and better at learning when classical music is played to them.

From about 20 weeks after conception it seems that unborn babies can hear and respond to sounds, and once they have arrived, by about three months they may respond to music – by six to nine months you will be quite positive that you can see them moving to music and making sounds to sing along.

Some experts think that music stimulates brain development, which is why it has this beneficial effect on babies and small children and it may even help to boost IQ, although no-one’s managed to prove this yet.

It’s easy enough to do though – get yourself some classical music and play it to your baby, and see if it makes a difference to them. You never know, you may find its one of the best things you did – and you might find that you come to enjoy the music too.

And does it work with heavy rock? Well, the jury’s out on that one, but as babies from newborn have a very strong startle and fright reflex to sudden sounds, it may not be the best way to go.

Holidays with toddlers

July 27, 2009 — Category: Baby Advice — Written by Diane

Going on holiday is so enjoyable for adults that it can be hard to remember that for small children this may be a daunting experience. Suddenly they are whisked away from home and familiarity to a new place with all new things to look at and get used to.

So if your toddler is a bit crotchety or unhappy, don’t be impatient with them, but understand their anxiety and give them some reassurance.

Some children become totally attached to a comforter, or ‘happy’ baby gifts they have been given. They may find a blanket or toy and become inseparable with it or you could give them a purpose made toy/blanket comforter.

Toddlers can get a lot of comfort from something familiar like this, so make sure it is with them while you are travelling and when you arrive at your holiday. You will find it much easier to keep your toddler happy when they have it with them and you can talk about what ‘bunny thinks of this place’ to encourage your toddler.

Once they get over their initial apprehension, small children are great fun to travel with as they see everything new and interesting and so you get even more pleasure from sharing it all with them.
