When she feeds from her bottle, she’s looking right back at you. It’s a special moment you won’t want to miss!
Here’s some good advice: When a baby falls asleep while drinking a bottle propped up with a pillow, liquid can flow too fast and possibly choke her when she breathes in. Take a small MOMent to hold your baby while feeding her. It’s the safe thing to do and you will be spending time with her. Definitely a win for both of you.
Naptime is as good for you as it is for your toddler. Don’t be afraid to lie down and rest next to your sweet child. When your child sleeps 10-13 hours a day including naps, he’s stronger, healthier and happier. You will be too.
Crying doesn’t always mean hungry. Touch your baby’s mouth, lips, or cheeks and if he opens his mouth then he’s probably hungry. If not, he may just want to play with you.
Mix formula according to directions. Not too much water or too little so your baby feels good after his meal. You will feel great too.
When you hold and feed your baby a bottle, you enjoy special 1-on-1 time with him. These moments will soon be just memories, so hold your baby close all you can.
Once you’ve mixed the formula, let it settle so the air bubbles calm down. That way it won’t irritate your baby’s tummy or you!
Snuggle Time! Feeding your baby a bottle is the perfect time to bond with him. So stop the world, pick a quiet corner and enjoy your sweet little one.
Give this a try! Feed your baby with the bottle parallel to the floor. That way she drinks when she wants to, at her own pace. You got this, Mom!
