View 1,081

Bringing home your precious little one can be filled with worry and anxiety, but trust me, every parent goes through it🏠. You might fear that you'll accidentally break your baby, but let me assure you, you can't! Those tiny beings are resilient and flexible. So, don't worry about delicate fingers and toes or yanking arms out of sockets. You're doing great😉!


Tips for supporting your baby safely

✔️Support their head and neck

Supporting your baby's head, neck, and spine is essential whenever you lift, hold, or carry them👩‍🍼. To do this, use one hand to gently scoop them up, while the other hand supports their adorable little bottom. This way, you're ensuring their delicate head is cradled and protected, while also maintaining proper alignment for their growing spine.

✔️Soft spots on the head

Those soft spots on their head, known as fontanelles, may seem delicate, but they are actually safeguarded by a sturdy membrane. So, go ahead and touch those soft spots with confidence. No need to handle them like fragile porcelain😵‍💫; they're safe to touch and a normal part of your baby's development.

✔️Wobbly head

If you notice your precious newborn's head flopping a bit as you navigate this learning curve, don't panic. Rest assured, it won't cause any harm to your baby👶. However, it's important to remember to avoid shaking your baby. Shaking can be harmful and we want to keep them safe and sound.

➰Dressing them up

When it comes to dressing your baby👚, it's best to prioritize simplicity and convenience. Choosing clothing items like side-snap shirts and wide-necked onesies can make the process much easier, especially when your baby still has an umbilical stump. These smart clothing choices not only simplify dressing but also ensure your baby's comfort😌.

Here's a helpful tip to make your life as a parent easier: avoid complicated outfits such as back-buttoned tops or turtlenecks without snaps. Trust me, this will save you from unnecessary struggles in the future. Our goal is to make dressing moments enjoyable for both you and your baby while minimizing any potential wardrobe mishaps.

➰Embrace diaper mishaps

It’s important to be prepared for diaper blow-outs and spit-ups, as these are common occurrences. You’ll likely have plenty of opportunities to change your baby’s clothes throughout the day. Embracing this learning process is key and with practice, you’ll become an expert in no time😎.

Remember to keep a stash of spare clothes handy, both at time and when you’re on the go. Having extra outfits readily available will save you from any unexpected surprises. It’s all part of the adventure of parenting a newborn, so try to approach it with a positive mindset and a sense of humor🕺.
