Noise is not an issue
It is not necessary to be quiet while your baby is sleeping because newborns are used to the noise as the womb is loud. For example, you can easily watch television, use vacuum or even talk on the phone when your baby is asleep. This can often prove to be quite useful in the future as well because the baby gets used to sleeping through the noise, which can allow you to utilize that time by completing pending work. This is one of the most useful tips for moms with newborn babies as it is tried and tested.
Calm your wailing newborn
Newborn babies cry at multiple times of the day because of various reasons. Be it when it’s time for the feed or when they simply want more attention, their first instinct is to cry. To soothe a crying baby, pat his/her back and hum softly. This also helps get babies to burp faster and makes them feel more secure and comfortable. Swaddling, shushing, swinging also helps calm them down.
Latch on issues
Moms usually face latch-on issues while breastfeeding the baby and breast shields usually help in the process. Most lactation consultants advise the same. Had it not been for the breast shields, moms would find it extremely difficult to nurse the baby.
After the newborn crosses the three-week benchmark, his/her routine becomes more predictable and disciplined. Moms can minimize their stress by prepping for everything in advance. For example, after the 9pm feeding, moms can get ready for the 12am one. During the day, moms can always take advantage of baby naps to take out time for exercise or other pending tasks that need to be done.
