A baby is very delicate and not easy to handle. Apart from ensuring one does not handle them in a rough manner, a parent is also responsible for ensuring the baby is comfortable at all times. Since these little ones cannot tell us what they really want, one is always second guessing themselves about certain decisions.
Here are a few tips to keep your baby calm and comfortable at all times
When you are on the move and cannot leave the baby in one place, you will have to carry them around. Carrying them in your arms is not stressful just for you but will cause a lot of body ache for them too. Try carrying them in a carrying cot or push them around in a pram. When you are climbing stairs or running errands, a good option would be to wear them.
Baby wearing is in practice from time immemorial. Though this was a lost and forgotten practice, more parents in the recent times are realizing the benefits of keeping the baby close to them. When you wear your baby, your hands are free to work and you can go through narrow spaces or even take the escalator.
The baby is very comfortable too, as they can hear your heart beat, feel your warmth and are not constantly juggled from arm to arm.
Getting a baby to sleep continuously is one of the greatest challenges a parent will have to face. Initially, the baby still needs the warmth and cozy atmosphere of the womb. Making them sleep on the bed or in a crib may not be very cozy for them. They will also want movement and carrying them around all night is not a feasible option.
