    Your 9 month old. Baby development. Newborn care.

    Today we are going to study about Baby development: Your 9-month-old What can my baby do at nine months? Playtime with your baby is becoming more fun. She will love the opportunity of emptying and filling containers or stacking cups and rings. At this age you will be her best play mate. She may not limit her exploration to toys though, and you may find yourself using the word “no” more often.

    Newborn Care: Reach Baby Milestones with Playtime Bonding

    [MUSIC PLAYING] I love playing with his little toes. We play games like this little piggy went to the market. And I would count his little fingers or draw a clown face by tracing the outlines of his face with my finger. He was around five weeks old when I saw his first smile. And it wasn’t too long after that that he was able to interact with me, which was so great. We would play peek-a-boo and giggle at each other.

    Winter Skin Care For Your Baby – Boys Town Pediatrics

    A baby’s skin is thinner than an adults and so it’s more likely to be damaged or at risk during the cold winter temperatures and the blowing gusts of wind. As a result it’s very easy for babies to develop chapped lips or dry, red, irritated skin. This can happen quickly, even a quick run into the grocery store or into church. If the temperatures are cold enough and the wind is blowing, a baby’s skin can be injured in a matter of seconds. For dry, red, irritated skin or chapped lips there are several good options for children. Vaseline is a perfect one or Aquaphor. That can be placed…

    Newborn Care: How to Hold a Newborn Baby

    [MUSIC PLAYING] Yeah, I hadn’t held a newborn in a while. And I was surprised how unsteady he was at first. I had to fully support his head and neck until he developed the strength to hold it up by himself. I found that just cradling his head in the bend of my arm or with my hand worked as a comfortable position.

    Newborn Care: Umbilical Cord Care

    The umbilical cord just fell off by itself after a couple of weeks. But before it did, we kept it dry mainly by keeping the diaper from covering it. Our doctor recommended we swab it with alcohol every few days to clean it. Be sure to check with your doctor to get their recommendation. Now, if the cord becomes smelly, oozing, or mushy, you should see your doctor right away.

    Newborn Care: How To Bathe a Newborn Baby

    I remember bath time as a special time with my little one. Like anything new, it took some time to work out a routine and for my baby to get used to it. Don’t worry if it’s a bit awkward for you at first, or if you baby doesn’t seem to care for it. You aren’t doing anything wrong. You’re just learning together. Here are a few things I’ve learned that made bath time a special time together. A sponge bath is recommended. I used a soft washcloth that was damp with water and not too hot.

    Newborn Care: How to Give Your Baby a Bath

    Bath time was often tricky. Trying to juggle what I needed and keep hold of my little one. I learned to make sure that everything was handy, within arm’s reach. So I could keep one hand on my baby, and still easily get what I needed. Then I’d fill the tub with a couple of inches of comfortably warm water. It should be around 94 to 96 degrees Fahrenheit. I used a baby bathtub, but a sink or a plastic tub works well too. I’d make sure the room was warm enough, around 75 degrees Fahrenheit, before undressing my baby and wrapping them in a towel to keep them warm.…
