0

Swaddling is something almost every baby experiences but it certainly is something that your baby will not need forever. In truth, there comes a time in your baby’s life when you will need to stop swaddling immediately. This article will help you know how and when is the right time to stop swaddling your baby. Before we get to that, let’s look at the benefits of swaddling.

Benefits of Swaddling

Swaddling is beneficial to both you as a mother and to your baby for many reasons; most especially when it is done safely and correctly. When you swaddle your baby, you make him feel just as if he were still in the womb, covered and comfortable, this helps your baby to sleep longer and better as he is in a comfort zone. Swaddling helps soothe your baby to sleep and when your baby is swaddled, less anxiety is experienced and they won’t wake up unnecessarily at night as a result of startle reflex which is something every baby is born with. Another benefit of swaddling is that it prevents your baby from face-scratching, with his hands not free there is no way he can scratch. Swaddling also ensures that your baby maintains a perfect sleeping position, once you place your baby in bed, they will hardly roll out of place. And surely, when your baby sleeps comfortably and peacefully all through the night, you too will have a peaceful and comfortable sleep.

Why you would need to stop swaddling your baby

Swaddling is beneficial; no doubt about that but, it can not be done forever as the time will come when your baby will no longer be needing it. It’s normal, just like every other thing your baby uses like pacifiers, cribs, and all the clothing you’ve ever bought, your baby will outgrow the swaddles. Most babies outgrow swaddling when they are between 3 to 6 months, but it is ideal you try to stop swaddling your baby from 4 months of age. If you continue to swaddle your baby after such age, it may turn out to be a threat to his over growth and development. Also, you would need to teach your baby how to sleep on his own, as your baby grows there is need for him to experiment different sleeping positions and having their hands and feet stuck will not help matters.

How to know when your baby has outgrown the swaddle

Like earlier stated, your baby will outgrow the swaddles and it is usually between the age of 3 – 6 months, some babies even outgrow swaddles as early as 2 months. You should swaddle your baby for as long as you think is safe and comfortable for him but also watch out for the signs so you know when it’s time to drop it. Some of these signs may include;

1. When your baby can break out from the swaddle

Let’s take for example, you waking up in the morning and going to get your baby from the baby nursery and you find that some parts of his body like hands and legs are out of the swaddle when you tucked him in properly in the night. What would you think? Let’s say you take it as nothing and then the next morning and the following one a similar thing happened. That means your baby can now break out of the swaddle all by himself and it can be a sign that he no longer needs it. If that is the case, you should start considering dropping the whole swaddling blankets for good.

2. Baby waking up in a different sleeping position

This is usually common and one of the major signs you should be looking out for. You swaddled your baby and placed him in a comfortable sleeping position in his crib at night and when you go to get them in the morning, you see that he has rolled to a different position while still in his swaddle. It may be nothing for the first time but once it happens again and again, you should know that your baby is no longer comfortable with sleeping while swaddled and actually wants to be free, so drop the act.

3. No more – Or Less – Startle Reflex

One of the major importance of swaddling your baby as we found out earlier is to prevent startle reflex which newborns are prone to experience. But, your baby will stop experiencing – or better still, experience less of – these startle reflexes and at that time, you would not be needing the swaddle blankets so much. When do baby stop experiencing or starts experiencing less of these startle reflexes? By 2 or 3 months, your baby will stop experiencing less and by 5 or 6 months old, they may disappear completely.

4. Baby being able to pull up in the crib

What this implies is that your baby has developed, developed to the stage that he is now able to pull himself up in his crib. This may be a sign that your baby no longer needs the swaddle as he now enjoys being free than being stationary. Most babies start doing this (pulling up themselves in the crib) when they are between about 8 months and 10 months. This is close to when a baby begins to stand and you certainly cannot use a swaddle on a baby for that long.

5. Being uncomfortable with the swaddles

Babies are cool with and usually enjoys being swaddled, it sure do make them feel comfortable. But, some babies become uncomfortable with it. You should not give up swaddling yet because it may be that your baby is not comfortable with the swaddling technique you are using, so you should try  a different swaddling technique. If he continues to be uncomfortable and maybe cry when swaddled – this is likely with older babies – it certainly means that your baby is telling you to flag down and that he no longer needs to be wrapped up in swaddling blankets.

Tips on how to stop swaddling your baby

So you have known the signs that shows that your baby may no longer be needing a swaddle, now how do you stop it. It maybe more easier than you think and the progress you’ll make depends on the behavior of your baby. If your baby has already started resisting the swaddle, it will be more easy to stop swaddling. But if your baby is still dependent on his swaddle to sleep, you may have a tough time with stopping it. All the same, the below steps will help;

1. Start by Minimizing

You should start by minimizing the number of times you swaddle your baby in a day. If you are the type that uses a swaddle both during naps at day time and bed time at night, you can consider minimizing it to swaddling your baby just during the night time. This is a very helpful step if you want to stop swaddling your baby as it will help him have more time to sleep freely so he won’t be much bothered when he sees the swaddle blankets no more. If your baby loves his swaddle so much, this will do the trick.

2. Gradually cut down on the Night Swaddling

So your baby has now gotten used to sleeping without a swaddle during the day and sleeping with it at night, great for a start now you know what to do next; cut down on the night swaddling. You should no longer be swaddling your baby every night, skip some days, you can swaddle this night and skip the next. Doing this constantly will help your baby adapt to no longer being swaddled. However, you should watch how your baby react to it every night so as to know if he is OK with it or not. If he seems fine during the nights without swaddles, then you just scored a huge point.

3. Try other swaddling methods

In this scenario, you are swaddling your baby, but not completely. One method is by wrapping only the upper or lower area of your baby’s body. You can also start by leaving one arm, or one leg of your baby un-swaddled at first. Next, you change gradually to leaving both arms, or both legs, unsaddled. From there, you will get to the point where your baby will be totally un-swaddled. Eventually, you will build up to the point where you are not swaddling at all. This is a slow and gradual process, at the end, the goal is to make it easy for your baby to get used to sleeping without being swaddled.

4. Soothe your baby before bedtime

Your baby stills needs to feel safe and comfortable before sleeping and now that you are taking away the swaddles, you can do a good job by soothing your baby before bedtime. You can carry your baby and rock him in your arms before he falls asleep or any other thing you know you can do to make him feel safe and comfortable before bedtime. This will make your baby not to miss the warm and soothing feel of being in the swaddle and if you continue with it, they will learn to live without it.

Tips to organize a diaper bag

0

Diaper bags are meant to help you carry your baby diapers and other items comfortably and easily. As a mother, it is certain that you would need to carry so many items in your diaper bag, as your baby would need a lot. When you have so much to carry, it may be confusing to decide what to put or what not to put, what is really important and what really is not. The question “What should I pack in a diaper bag” is one of the most asked by mothers.

Your diaper bag needs to be well organized with all the items you need placed properly. By reading the below outlined tips, you will find out what and what is needed in your diaper bag and how to organize it as well.

1. Get the right diaper bag; I believe before now, you must have already gotten a diaper bag, the question is, is it the best diaper bag for you? If you want to organize your diaper bag properly, you would need a diaper bag that is optimized to help you do so. It is recommended that you pick a diaper bag with so many pockets and compartments for you would have more space and storage units to your advantage.

2. Start with the little stuffs; This is where I believe every task of organizing a diaper bag should start. Small stuffs I mean includes items like your pacifier and all other small tiny items your baby will be needing. These little stuffs may be a heck of a task to find if not properly kept, this is because they are very small and can easily get lost in your bag. Fortunately, modern diaper bags usually have so many pockets and compartments where you can store these little items, some of the pockets are specifically made for your little stuffs. When you store them in these pockets, you get to know where they are which helps you to get them easily whilst keeping your diaper bag very organized.

3. Pack your baby diapers; The main reason why a diaper bag is needed is to help you carry your baby diapers more conveniently so it should be the next to go in. Now, the question is How many diapers should you pack in your bag? The amount of diapers you will put depends on the size of your diaper bag and how many hours you intend to spend outdoors. But, a maximum of about 6 or 8 diapers should be OK, if there is still enough space, you can consider adding more, just to be safe because babies are very funny at times. You should pack your baby diapers side by side so it would be easier to access them.

4. Put in your diaper wipes; You can’t afford to leave this one out, your baby will not forgive you. Make sure you pack just as enough baby wipes you will be needing. Most diaper bags have wipes pocket, these pockets were made to carry diaper wipes so you should put them in there.

4. Put in Creams and ointments; You need to carry your baby creams, lotions, ointments, powders and other likewise items. This would be a lot easier to carry if you buy samples sized products. 

5. Put in your changing pad; A changing pad is one of the essentials you should put in your diaper bag. There must be a time when you will need to carry out a diaper change when you are outdoors, and with a changing pad, it would be a lot easier. Changing pads are usually slim and padded so storing it will not be too much of a work. You just have to fold it into half or sections and carefully place it in a befitting area inside your diaper bag. Most diaper bags usually have side compartments for carrying these changing pads so if you have such a bag, you can see it as an advantage.

6. Keep spaces for soiled clothing; Your baby clothes may get dirty and soiled such that you would need to change them. Where do you keep the dirty clothes? Or in cases whereby you make use of cloth diapers which are not disposable and they get soiled, you would definitely need some space to keep the dirty clothes so you can wash when you get home. You can’t put them directly into the bag where other items are or it will dirty them as well. If your diaper bag has a wet pocket, they can go in there. Otherwise, you can purchase a spare plastic bag for this purpose, it helps keep your bag organized so you don’t mix things up.

7. Keep spaces for your own mummy items; The diaper bag is not only meant for your baby alone, as a Mom you should also carry your own items too. While packing your diaper bag, you should keep some space for carrying items you may need, items like your wallet, car keys, novel or even a camera of you love taking pictures. There are lots of pockets and compartments in a diaper bag where you can put these items so you should not just scatter it anyhow. Side pockets and front pockets usually featured on diapers backpacks are perfect for this.

8. Carry your baby bibs; You should not forget your baby bibs, unless of course you would like your baby clothes to get messed up while feeding out doors. You can opt for disposable or reusable baby bibs but for outdoor use and packing in a diaper bag, disposable baby bibs are recommended. This is because when you are done with it, you disposable it at once without having to put it back inside your diaper bag where it can stain other contents. If you want to make use of reusable bibs, then you can designate a separate compartment for putting them after use, other than that, they should stay off your bag.

9. Carry toys only if necessary; Toys can be a life saver most at times, especially when babies wants to disturb or when you want to carry out a diaper change, you can just hand them a toy or two and they will get carried. But, some of these toys can be really big and space consuming at times that you would be confused as that whether to carry them along or not. If you ask me, I would say you should carry these toys only if necessary. If you are not going to stay out for long, I do not think there is any need for toys. If you would stay longer, you can carry few, but try to select the smaller ones which can easily go into the pockets. If your baby happens to have attachable toys, it would be better because you can easily hang them to your diaper bag or your baby stroller if you go out with one.

10. Carry additional baby clothes; This is really not something you need to be told. Additional baby clothes, about 1 or 2 extras should go in your diaper bag because there are high chances of babies dirtying their clothes and needing a change of clothes thereafter. Just as you would store clothes in any other bag, roll up the clothes or fold them in sections and carefully place them inside your diaper bag. Getting a ziplock bag to pack the clothes before putting it inside the diaper bag is also not a bad idea. You might also consider carrying extras of other stuffs like socks and shoes.

11. Carry Clean Blankets; Blankets are needed along with a changing pad when you want to perform a diaper change. Make sure you pack really clean ones, fold them and place it inside your diaper bag. If you want to breast feed while out, the blankets can serve as a nursing cover.

12. Foods and Snacks should be kept separately; You can’t afford to put your food, snacks and drinks in the same place as others, this is both for health and safety purposes. You should carefully place your eatables in separate compartments away from the diapers, clothes and the rest. Some bags have pockets and compartments specified for carrying food and snacks. For water bottles and drinks, most diaper bags, especially the backpacks has insulated pockets where you can store them to keep them warm.

13. You may need band-aids; If you happen to have band-aids for kids, you should try to carry them along. Babies like to play and playing when outdoors, they may get bruises and scratches if very rough. In such a case, a band-aid may come in handy as it allows you take care of the situation immediately.

Conclusion

Making sure your diaper bag is organized and contains all need is something every mother should endeavor to do. If every item in your bag is organized and placed properly, It saves you the stress of having to look for these items as you would know just where to get them when needed.

Baby Sleeping guide

0

It is very important that you teach your baby how to sleep, not just how to sleep, but how to sleep properly. There is so much for you to learn about your baby when it comes to sleeping, this baby sleeping guide contains necessary information about babies and sleeping to help you understand the whole process better.

Why sleeping is very important for your baby

Sleep plays a very important role in the physical health of every human being. Having enough sleep is  helps in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. Not having enough sleep can increase risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and kidney disease. For babies, when they sleep, the blood supply to the muscles is increased, important hormones are released for the growth and development of the baby. It also helps restore energy and repair body tissues. What all these means is that sleep is very important for everyone, but you can say it is more than important to babies.

What Makes a Good Night’s Sleep?

There are many things involved in making sure your baby has a good night’s sleep, some of them include;

A Quiet Room

Your baby cannot have a good night’s sleep by sleeping in a room that is not quiet, you as an adult cannot too. Make sure the room is quiet, you can also add white noise if you want.

Dark or Dimly Lit Room

Too much light in the room is another discouraging factor for a good night’s sleep. If you do not want your baby’s room all dark, dim the lights or make use of a soft, bedside lamp.

Moderate Room Temperature

The temperature of the room should be moderate, not too hot, not too cold. It has been said that overheating can increase the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) in babies. For babies to sleep comfortably, a room temperature between 68 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal.

Fresh Air

Everyone needs fresh air, you will hardly be comfortable if the air is not fresh, so too will your baby be. Babies need fresh air because it helps them to sleep longer at night and that is ideal for them to get a good night sleep.

How much sleep do your baby need

The amount of time or hours baby needs to sleep varies, but you should know the recommended sleeping hours to ensure your baby is getting enough.

  • 0 – 3 months old; Babies of this age needs to sleep for about 10 – 11 hours each night and about take about 4 – 5 hours nap time during the day.
  • 4 – 5 months old; Babies of this age needs to sleep for about 10 – 12 hours each night and about take about 2 – 4 hours nap time during the day.
  • 6 – 8 months old; Babies of this age needs to sleep for about 11 – 12 hours each night and about take about 2 – 3 hours nap time during the day.
  • 9 – 17 months old; Babies of this age needs to sleep for about 11 – 12 hours each night and about take about 2 – 3 hours nap time during the day.
  • 18 months – 3 years old; Toddlers of this age needs to sleep for about 10 – 12 hours each night and about take about 1 – 3 hours nap time during the day.
  • 3 – 5 years old; Toddlers of this age needs to sleep for about 10 – 11 hours each night and about take about 0 – 3 hours nap time during the day.
  • 5 years and above; Toddlers of this age needs to sleep for about 9 – 10 hours each night and do not necessarily need to take naps.

What might keep your baby awake

Some babies may find it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep at night. It could be that there are some things keeping them awake, some of the things that might keep your baby awake include;

Sleep Association

If your baby has formed a habit of sleeping with a particular thing or object (sleep association), it may be difficult for him to fall asleep if it is not available. It can be anything, a toy, the pacifier, anything your baby is fond of. You should try to change these sleep associations early so your baby will learn how to fall asleep without needing that object.

Certain Development Stages

Babies get nervous at times especially when they reach a developmental milestone like when your baby learns how to pull up, crawl, walk or talk. It’s normal for them to get anxious which may make them wake up at night. If that is the case, there is not much you can do than trying different soothing methods or allowing it to pass.

When your baby is Teething

This is usually the case because babies find it very hard to stay asleep when the milk teeth is emerging. During this time, it is likely for their gums to swell and get sore, this causes them pain and makes them fussy. There are ways by which you can ease these pains, like making use of teething gels and giving them small doses of paracetamol and ibuprofen.

Hunger

If your baby is hungry before going to bed, believe me he falls asleep, he will wake up in the middle of the night and cry on top of his voice. When hunger is the case, you already know what to do but feeding late in the night is not advisable. To avoid this make sure your baby is well fed before bedtime.

Baby Colic

When your baby has colic, it can keep your baby awake and prevent him from having a healthy sleep. You know if your baby has colic mainly from doctors diagnosis and you should start finding possible solutions to it immediately too, because it is really not a nice situation. You can try some natural remedies in treating baby colic, they work best.

How important is soothing to your baby

Soothing is very important for your baby to sleep and you would come to benefit from soothing more when your baby learns how to self soothe. Below are some of the reasons why soothing (self soothing especially) is important;

  • Soothing helps make your baby feel calm and relaxed. When your baby is calm and relaxed, he can quickly fall asleep and also enjoy his sleep as well.
  • If your baby can self soothe, he will be able to fall asleep and stay asleep all by himself. This takes some work off your shoulder as your baby is now helping you.
  • Soothing will make your baby’s bedtime routine easy to maintain. You can set up a schedule and when it’s time your baby won’t want to sleep, but when you soothe them, they definitely will sleep.
  • Babies who can self soothe normally grow up to become toddlers who manage their tantrums better and it can also make them perform better in school (Strange but true).

How important is a baby bedtime routine

When talking about babies and sleep, a baby bed time routine is very important and it is something you should try to develop and maintain. Below are some of the reasons why your baby needs to have a daily bedtime routine;

  • Your baby having a bed time routine helps him understand when it is time for him to get to bed. As you carry out your baby bed time routine everyday, you are actually training your baby to be organized and develop a good sleeping habit.
  • A good bed time routine can help calm and soothe your baby to having a good night sleep. This is true since your baby will be active for few minutes before bed time.
  • A baby bed time routine helps you as a mother to bond with your baby. It brings you and your baby closer so you get to know and understand each other better.
  • Bed time routines can help your baby feel safe and secure at home and around family. When your baby gets used to his bedtime routine, it becomes easy for him to trust the parents as he can now predict what they do.

These are few, but should be enough to convince you. Now that you know just how important a baby bed time routine is, you should try to create a consistent and effective one for your baby to follow.

Sleep Training

Sleep training has to do with helping a baby learn how to fall asleep and stay asleep all through the night. This is normally quick and easy for some babies to do, but the majority do have problems with sleeping and going back to sleep when they wake in the middle of the night, so you will need to help them with it.

When you should start sleep training

Babies are different, so the time that you should start sleep training differs. That being said, it is recommended that you start sleep training when your baby is between the age of 4 – 6 months. The signs that shows that your baby is ready for sleep training are likely to starts showing up when he is about 4 months old, most babies usually don’t feed much at night at this time and they may develop a sleep-wake cycle. Baby training can be done in a number of ways but these are the 3 major approaches;

  • The no tears approach; In this process, you make sure your baby is very comfortable and does not cry (no tears) when it is time for sleep. You can soothe your baby to sleep and comfort him almost immediately when he cries.
  • The cry it out approach; This process is in contrast with the previously mentioned one. The cry it out approach implies that you leave your baby to cry and not pick him up, unless it gets out of hand. By doing this, your baby will learn how to self soothe and be able to fall asleep on his own.
  • The fading approach; You gradually fade away from your baby’s crib, one step at a time. You may sit close to his bed today, the next you move your chair a bit farther and so on. This also makes your baby learn how to soothe himself.

What you should know about Naps

Naps (Daytime sleeps) are really helpful, they provide you and your baby with rest. They are very important if you want to grow a healthy and happy baby. The number of naps a baby needs differ from age to age and you would need to have a nap routine, just like your bed time routine.

There are periods when some babies may refuse to take naps – more especially the older babies – though they are tired and still needs to rest. If this is the case, it could be that your baby is having more than or less than enough sleep during the night so you should try adjusting his bedtime. It is not easy to make your baby get the right amount of naps they need as babies can be stubborn at times. You should just be patient and be consistent with the nap routine, your baby will surely catch up with time.

Sleep regressions, what are they?

This is the last thing I will be talking about in this

baby sleep guide – sleep regressions. It is a common situation among most newborn babies and it gets parents really confused.  Take for instance, your baby who has been sleeping soundly every night suddenly starts waking at night, just like that, for no reason. Or your baby no longer takes naps, and when he does, he wakes up almost immediately – that is what sleep regressions means. It usually happens between 1 – 4 weeks after your baby is born.

To handle sleep regressions, you just have to put more effort in soothing and comforting your baby to sleep. Make sure everything needed for a good night’s sleep is available and everything that will prevent sleep is removed. You can also try putting your baby in bed more earlier so he has enough time to get sleep.

This may not seem like an outstanding feature for parents with a singleton, but for a couple with a twin, it will prove to be of great importance over time.

The features of the design don’t end there though, as this bassinet boasts a smooth 360-degree rotation and an adjustable height for you to stay close to your babies all the time.

The bassinet sides are made of mesh, giving your babies a feeling of togetherness while separating their sleep areas, each of which measures 35×35, making it spacious enough for each of your babies, and comes with a waterproof mattress pad and a fitted sheet.

Besides being tender and comfortable, the mesh sides also provide the convenience of easy viewing. Lowering them is a piece of cake as well, something that’ll prove handy for soothing and feeding throughout the night.

All in all, this is a real bargain for the price considering the comfy and convenient mesh sides, versatility, and 360-degree rotation feature. If your babies are under five months of age and 20 pounds of weight, this can be the best bassinet for twins for your family and will definitely give you the bang for the buck.

Circle Tech Baby Trend Twin Nursery Center

It consists of two removable, independent bassinets, each having its own canopy and can transform into a standalone rocket. They also feature ergonomic handles for easy transportation when you’re outside having a nice picnic as a family.

As your babies grow, the purpose of the double bassinet can be altered when it’s no longer needed. Simply remove the bassinets, and the base will become a changing table. Fast forward a few months, when your babies start moving around, the base can turn into a play yard for your kids to have fun in a safe manner.

The Circle Tech Baby Trend Twin Nursery Center comes with a couple of extras, including a small light that you can use to check on your twins without having to reach the large room lights, a volume-controlled music module that can play songs and nature sounds or vibrate, a storage area in which you can store the diapers and wipes to keep them nearby, as well as the flip changing table mentioned above.

Granted, this double bassinet is a beast, but it does come with some drawbacks. First, it weighs 41 pounds, which means that despite being portable, it can be a pain to move around for some people. Second, you cannot use the flip changing table while the left bassinet is in the nursery center. Finally, the bassinet is only hand-washable, which may seem inconvenient for some people, but the fabrics are easy to clean, so it’s not that bad, really.

If those drawbacks don’t bother you, and you’re looking for a moderately-priced bassinet that offers great versatility, Circle Tech’s Baby Trend Twin Nursery Center might just be the best bassinet for twins in your case.

Picking the Best Bassinet for Twins – Buyer’s Guide

What Should Look for in Your Twin Bassinet?

If this is your first pregnancy, purchasing in advance every product your baby needs is essential, chiefly when you are expecting twins. You won’t spare time shopping when you give birth. Also, having your essentials besides you will help you devote yourself entirely to taking care of your babies without any extra worries.

The bassinet will be like a crib to your twins, and the exciting part is its compact model, making it easily portable, especially when traveling. The sides are lower for easy access, and you will have an accompanying cover to keep the babies warm when sleeping. You will find the wheels smooth to roll to make the movement more comfortable on travel. 

You will need the bassinet only during the first few months, yet the crib will be more useful for toddlers. So, if you look for a product that lasts for some years, you have to consider this feature before deciding whether to buy a bassinet or a crib.

Should You Get a Portable Bassinet?

If you know that you will be moving around the house or outdoors too often, then we highly recommend getting a portable bassinet. They have wheels, they are foldable, and they have a smaller size and lighter weight compared to other models.

Some sophisticated models can even be transformed into a hand-carry baby basket, which can be very beneficial, particularly if there’s someone to help you with the other twin.

However, make sure that each of these characteristics can be held into place. For instance, if the bassinet has a mechanism that makes wheeling easy and fast, it must also be instantly stopped and locked to ensure the safety of your bassinet while on the go.

Are Twin Bassinets Multi-Functional?

Numerous types of bassinets include storage areas below the basket or on the sides. They are used to hold the milk dispensers, baby diapers, clothes, toys, or other equipment. You will find this feature very important for vacations and while traveling.

Some bassinets have accompanying milk bottle holders so they are securely placed. Some others can be turned into a table for when you have to change your baby’s diapers or clothes. There are also foldable models that can be adhered to twin strollers.

Some sophisticated bassinets even come with a removable baby basket. Others can be turned into a play yard for your kids when they outgrow the bassinet, which is the case for most of the products reviewed above. That can come in handy if you’re not one to get single, limited-usage products.

Choosing a multifunctional bassinet will not only save your money but also guarantees you put everything you need in one place and can get it at any time. 

Can Baby Bassinets Be Moved?

Some types of bassinets are developed with a quick-release latch mechanism, which allows the bassinet to roll smoothly and quickly. Specific models sway when the wheels are locked, but these come with rechargeable batteries.

Some parents can be daunted with this kind of bassinets. Their primary advantage though is that they get the babies to sleep profoundly and comfortably as if someone was rocking them, which ensures their relaxation and your rest.

Which Security Standards Are Implemented in Twin Bassinets?

Your babies’ safety is the ultimate priority when it comes to picking up a product for them. If your twins are going to be on the bassinet for prolonged periods of time, you have to make sure it is entirely safe and supports them properly.

That leads us to say that the bassinet should have a safe, reliable and long-lasting construction, and come with a soft and comfortable mattress.

Always look for models approved by American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the Juvenile Products Manufacturer’s Association (JPMA). These institutions have strict criteria, so be sure that cribs and bassinets that have their accreditation meet the safety standards.

Is There an Age and Weight Limit for Twin Bassinets?

You have to consider the weight limit of the bassinet, mainly for twins. The maximum weight supported should be approximately the total weight of the twins at the age limit set by the bassinet. Hence, you will be sure your babies are safe and well supported.

Aside from this, you should know in advance how long you are going to use the bassinet. You don’t want to spend thousands of dollars on an item you need just for a couple of months.

While some bassinets don’t mention any age limit, you should frequently check whether the bassinet conveniently suits your babies. In such a case, the only indication about the utility and endurance is the weight limit. If the babies are still within the weight range for at least six months, you still have to see if they move comfortably in the basket and aren’t bothered with the lower walls.

Are Protective Walls Important?

The construction and breathability of the walls are essential features you have to take into consideration. Some of the best bassinet models are manufactured in wood slats and are typically used for cribs since they provide sustainability and stability. Some gaps separate the branches for good air circulation so that the babies can breathe in any posture.

As for the compact twin bassinets that come with stainless steel corners and mesh-like walls for enhanced safety, they ensure a convenient airflow around and inside the bassinet. Even when the babies sleep facing the wall, be sure they are breathing well and comfortably.

Verdict: Choosing the Best Bassinet for Twins

When you have kids, all you can think about is their well-being, safety, and comfort, and when it comes to comfort, nothing tops getting the best bassinet. That especially applies when you have twins, as most bassinets are designed for a single baby, which makes finding one that can get your newborns the comfort and protection they need without breaking the bank seem like a hard task.

Thankfully, we’ve done the heavy lifting for you. Above, you’ll find the top-rated bassinets for twins along with their reviews. Each product has its own perks and disadvantages, so make sure to determine your preferences and needs before delving into the list.

The first step in this choosing process is to define your desires and expectations by answering these questions clearly:

What Size of the Doll Would Be Comfortable for Playing?

The size of the doll is a crucial characteristic you have to take into consideration before buying. Silicone dolls come in various sizes and shapes, some are as small as 11 inches, and others could be as big as 22 inches.

Are Dolls Washable and Waterproof?

It is terrific to know that some of the best silicone baby dolls are washable and waterproof. Hence, your kid can even play with his toys while taking a bath. You can imagine how shower time will become more fun and enjoyable for your baby. While this feature might be beneficial and enhances the baby’s learning process, you only can decide whether it is an essential criterion of selection or not.

What Accessories Are Available with the Doll Package?

Unless you have killer sewing skills and you would love to create tailor-made outfits for the baby doll, you may opt for dolls that come with a wide range of garments, accessories and even toys. This may be a great addition to the package, but it will remarkably increase the price of the toy package. The joy of taking good care of the appearance and clothing of the doll may come at an expense, but it is worth it in case you want an original and customized toy for your kid.

How Close to Reality Are the Interactions with the Doll?

Best Swaddle Blankets

0

There are few things more satisfying than wrapping your baby up in a perfect swaddle blanket burrito. The thing is, swaddling a baby isn’t just for the aesthetic, it’s to help bring comfort to your baby while they’re adjusting to the world around them. Before a baby is born, they are snuggled up in the womb, surrounded by the amniotic sac. Swaddling is meant to help simulate the feeling of being in the womb, in turn making it easier for a baby to settle down and sleep.

Most swaddling is one during the first 3 to 4 months after your baby is born. Some may refer to this time period as the “fourth trimester”. Parents find that swaddling their baby helps out a lot when it’s time time for bed, allowing them to sleep comfortably for longer periods of time. Not only does this help a baby get the rest they need, but the entire family can also get their sleep in as well.

Different Types of Swaddle Blankets

Swaddling has been done for hundreds of years. Recently, new types of swaddle blankets have been created to help make swaddling easier, more effective, and cuter thanks to the plethora of designs you can find in the market today. Swaddle blankets are made in many different styles, fabrics, and colors to suit your personal preferences and what you feel is best for your baby. The following is a list of the different types of swaddle blankets you can pick:

Old Fashioned Baby Swaddle Wraps

These swaddle blankets are the traditional way to swaddle a baby. They are either square or rectangular shaped pieces of fabric that require you to wrap your baby up yourself, which can be done in a few different ways. To help you out, we’ll explain the process step-by-step.

How to Swaddle Your Baby

  1. First, you need to lay the swaddle blanket down on a safe, flat surface in a diamond position. The top corner should be folded over 4 to 6 inches to allow your baby’s head freedom from the rest of the blanket.
  2. Next, you should lay your baby down on the center, placing their neck over the fold you just created.
  3. Pull the left side of the blanket over and tuck it underneath your baby. Make sure your baby’s hips are loose as you do this. You should never force your baby’s legs straight as you do this to prevent hip dysplasia.
  4. The next step is to pull the bottom corner upwards and place it over their left shoulder. Tuck this corner into the fold you created on the top of the blanket to keep it securely in place.
  5. The final step is to bring over the right corner and tuck it underneath your baby on the other side.

As you swaddle your baby, you’ll want to make sure their arms are staying either 1: on their sides or 2: in front of them together. Some babies are soothed from their hands being up front and together.

Swaddle Suits

Swaddle suits are a cheat for those who would prefer to make things a little bit easier. These swaddling suits use zippers, velcros, or hook & loops to help wrap the fabric around your baby and bundle them up. This is very useful for saving time, reducing stress, and making those night time wakings a little bit easier to deal with.

Some Tips to Help You Out

Even though swaddling your baby is something that comforts them, there are a few things you need to keep in mind in terms of safety and your sanity. Here are some swaddling tips:

  • For the most part, pretty much every baby likes to be swaddled. Don’t be discouraged if your baby seems to object at first. Try out different swaddling blankets and techniques and you’ll most likely figure out what works best for both your baby and you.
  • At around 2 months of age, your baby will most likely want their arms to be free. At this point, you can start to swaddle them less and look into a wearable blanket to help keep them warm.
  • Aside from a swaddle blanket or a wearable blanket, there should be nothing else in your baby’s crib. Bumpers, pillows, blankets, stuffed animals, and more are not safe to keep in the crib with your baby.
  • Start off with at least 2 or 3 swaddle blankets to ensure you always have one on hand. Since your baby will only need to be swaddled for the first few months of their life, you don’t need to go overboard with the swaddle blankets either (though many moms like to find secondary uses for these blankets later on!).

Best Swaddle Blankets Reviews

So now you’re a swaddling expert and need some swaddles for your baby. To help you out, we picked out the best swaddle blankets that you should definitely consider.

Things To Look For In A Good Nursing Tank Top

So, since has buying anything after childbirth been as easy as buying it before even getting pregnant? Never. And since clothing is not an exception, here are the following tips to pick out the right nursing tank.

  1. Built-in Bra

Most nursing tank tops should offer some support for your chest. Whether such support is enough in order to keep you comfortable will actually depend on your bust size, so don’t even think about burning your maternity bras yet. So, if you’re one of the very busty mamas, then you might need to get the extra support that a nursing bra offers.

  1. Material

If you’re eyeing a formfitting tank top, then you might want a soft fabric which should provide you with a comfortable stretch without losing fit. Polyester, spandex, nylon, and cotton are the most common materials that you will come across.

However, cotton has the best breathability, so if you want to avoid sweaty boobs and adding some saltiness to your little one’s meal, then cotton is the best to go.

After that, you will have to think of shapewear. Are you interested in a loose fit or something that will tuck your tummy in? Since these are both things which different nursing tanks offer, make sure to double check that you’ll be getting what you want before purchasing.

  1. Skip The “Wrinkle-Free” Tops

Yeah, I know you love something which means less work. Believe me, I do. However, wrinkle-free finish usually comes with chemicals such as formaldehyde added to the fabric.

Since you surely don’t want your baby to be resting their delicate skin against that, then you need to steer clear of clothes featuring a wrinkle-free promise.

  1. Avoid The Nip Slip

If you are an active mama, then take this into consideration:

Before heading to the gym for cycling or yoga classes, you need to make sure that your nursing tank is not going to fall open.

Know that there is some nursing cami that does not have hooks which are designed for a lot of bouncing around, providing a chance for your spin class to become awkward and embarrassing.

  1. Ruching Note

This is a technique of having some fabric “bunch” which can give a really cute silhouette. That is if you’re wearing the nursing tank as it is. However, if you are looking for a tank to wear as an undershirt then you might want to look somewhere else. Go for a smooth fabric which lays flat and smoothly against your body in order to avoid that bumpy appearance which can make people wonder what’s going on under your outer shirt.

Conclusion

So, as you can see, there are various ways to breastfeed without baring your all when out in the public. Since there are so many styles and designs to choose from, you will not have to sacrifice your fashion sense.

Have fun creating a wardrobe which works with your breastfeeding need, so that you and your little one can get out and enjoy the great outdoors.

As long as the baby starts to eat solid food at usually 6-8 months of age and beyond, you can mix a small amount of organic yogurts to the baby’s diet. Make sure the yogurt is appropriate for babies.

  • What are the most essential ingredients of organic baby yogurts?

Babies are delicate when it comes to what they consumed. As a parent, there’ll be no time to check all of the ingredients written on the package. Hence, spotting these two ingredients is enough:

  • Organic whole milk also known as pasteurized whole milk

It must contain more fat in which essential for babies to gain muscles, healthy brain development, and have strong bones. Infants require up to 33-grams of fat per day while growing kids need up to 35-grams. It makes the yogurt tastes better.

  • Live active cultures

List of live active cultures includes L. bulgaricus, acidophilus, rhamnosus, and so on. These elements turn milk into yogurt and provide probiotics.

  • At what time of a day should babies eat organic yogurt?

Since yogurts are full of nutrients such as calcium, vitamins and minerals, and proteins, it can be served as baby’s main meal and snack. One cup a day is enough for babies as it already contains more and more nutrients a baby needs.

  • Why do medical communities say no to dairy products, including yogurt, earlier than 1-year-old?

They’re lying!

Dairy products are good for babies above 6-months for it is easy to digest. The only reason why experts don’t allow the yogurt to babies is they fear breastfeeding formula will come to an end. The remedy is to feed the baby with yogurt with moderation without excluding milk. Then again, yogurts are beneficial for babies earlier than 1-year.

THE FINAL THOUGHTS

There’ll be no substitute to a mother’s milk in nurturing a baby which is a great source of protein. However, adding an organic yogurt to the child’s regimen as early as 6-months is recommended for extra nutrients a baby can absorb. It’s important to know whether a selected yogurt is good for babies or not to prevent further serious damage upon the baby’s health.

Most parents are rooting on the best organic baby yogurt mentioned earlier. Hope you’ll pick one of those too.

What are the Different Types of Double Stroller?

Double strollers are categorized into three types – Side-by-side strollers, In-line strollers, and Sit ‘NStand strollers. Each of them has numbers of advantages and disadvantages and the final decision depends on your liking.

Things to Think through

You are aware of the increasing number of double strollers in the market. To keep away from stress in choosing a product, here are the key points for the best double stroller you might consider:

  • Price – Buy a product that your budget can bear.
  • Child’s comfort –The baby must properly fit on the stroller with adequate air circulation. Additionally, the seat primarily holds comfort for the baby. It can be reclined or adjusted up to the desired comfort.
  • Safety –Stroller uses 3 or 5-point harness or a belly bar to secure the baby. Make sure the construction is sturdy enough to hold babies.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)

We bet you’re getting more and more excited to have one among the listed best double strollers, if not, among what the market offers. Here are five frequently asked questions gathered that might be a big help in making a purchase:

  • Why do you need to buy a double stroller?

Having a double stroller will lessen the hassle in caring for two kids at the same time. It greatly benefits the parents who are so busy making chores or in going to groceries. Parents can buy much stuff as they can carry it all by the hand without the worry of neglecting the security of the kids. Buying a double stroller also cuts the cost of buying only a single one.

  • What is the certain age a baby could ride on a double stroller?

Newborns are welcome to ride on a stroller but with an infant car seat. It helps to assure the comfort and safety of the baby. Children from 6-months old to 3-years old normally fit on strollers. Or, it may depend upon the growth level of a child. As long as the kid can lie alone on stroller bedding, it is certain that kid could ride a stroller.

  • How to clean a double stroller?

The secret of a long-lasting stroller is by reading its manual guide. Cleaning a stroller might seem crucial due to the attachments made but it’s actually not. See whether the material is machine-washable or not. There are fabrics which are only good for hand wash cleaning or through wiping it with a wet cloth. Knowing these factors will save you from further expenses.

  • What additional items could I get in purchasing a double stroller?

Aside from the stroller, manufacturers normally offer so many additional items such as snack tray, cup holders, and storage pockets. These items make every purchase more cost-effective and an advantage for average earner parents. Other accessories such as infant car seat and adapter are sold separately.

  • What are the seals every double stroller manufacturer must have?

Baby’s safety is surely the prime purpose of every parent in buying a double stroller. The ride must conform to the following standards, such as:

Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) – JPMA certifies that an independent facility has tested the baby product if it meets the guidelines and standards of ASTM international.

American Society for Testing Materials–This sets the standards for the overall safety and performance of a product.

Consumer Product Safety Commission –This standard protects the public from unreasonable risks that may result in using a certain product. In case of a double stroller, the risk of injuries is surely avoided.

If a double stroller has been sealed by those above-mentioned, it is a sign of a good buy product.

THE BOTTOM LINE

With a double stroller, bringing two kids in every trip is very convenient. The two kiddos are safe from being unmonitored as they’re both contained in a stroller. Yet, proper parenting isn’t to be excused in growing kids. Further, double strollers greatly benefit single parents out there.

Now that you have lots of choices of double strollers, pick the ride that suits your baby’s need. Consider the provided buying guide in deciding which product is a good buy to avoid regretting in the end. You can search for more dual strollers at any legal sales sites. We recommend the Amazon site for more branded options.
