What can you do to help your baby remain healthy? What are the tricks of the trade that won’t cost you a royal mint? What do babies really need when it comes to every day care?
Get the answers, here.
- Teething might not be first on your “what should I do list” but it’s a good idea to be prepared. Try bagels, teething biscuits, or a cool bottle of water when your baby begins teething.
- Try lemon to remove spit-up stains. Fill a pot of water on the stove and boil a couple of slices of lemon with it. Once the water comes to a boil, turn off the heat and place the baby clothes in the pan. Soak for at least an hour. Launder as usual. If you’re experiencing a nice summer day, hang up your baby’s clothes to dry—the sun is a natural bleach.
- If your baby has colic, try playing soft music or switching the formula you use. Make sure you’re not over feeding your baby by keeping to a regular schedule. If you’re breastfeeding take stock of what you’ve been eating; spicy food contributes significantly to colic in babies.
- Want to save money on diapers? Ask for them when folks want to know what you can use. Focus on store brands, they’re usually cheaper, and don’t hesitate to look for diaper sales, coupons or rebate offers.
