New born baby First months step by step guide.

1 week:

How your baby is growing:

Since he has recently curled up inside your uterus, your newborn will probably scream for a while without fully extending his arms and legs. He may even appear bogged down.

Don’t worry: your baby will stretch a little bit and by the age of 6 months his age will be fully exposed! In the meantime, when she adjusts to living outside the warm, safe limits of your womb, she can enjoy wrapping herself in a light blanket.
Your life: You are a father!
This week, the reality set up - you have a baby! He is all yours, he is at home with you and he is dependent on you for love, care and feeding.

No doubt you are going to read about what to do and how to do it. We have plenty of articles and tools to refresh your memory and teach you new tips, but our best advice this week is: Don't try to master the art of caring for a baby at once.

Make it easy, slow down your newborn is more durable than you think. The more you and your partner get used to it, the more you get used to it. Like all good relationships, it will take some time.

Baby name:
After a week you will put a beautiful name for your child. And take the advice of wise people. And more:

How your baby is growing:

Your womb was a warm and comfortable environment and it takes time for your baby to adjust to the different views, sounds and sensations of life outside of your body. You probably won't be able to find any personality as you spend time hanging out at different times for your baby's sleep, quiet alertness and active alertness.

Crying is the only way your baby knows how to communicate, but you can communicate with him through your own voice and touch. He can now detect your voice and choose it among others.

Your baby probably likes to hold, care, kiss, stroke, massage and carry. He can also say “ah” when he hears your voice or sees your face and he will be eager to find you in the crowd.

Your life: Baby blues

It seems nonsense: at a time when you expected to be very happy, you feel humble, crying, moody or upset. In fact, about half of all new mothers have a very good reason for the so-called baby blues.

Lack of sleep in the first week at home with a baby, recovery from childbirth, demands for newborn care, lack of experience for babies and not getting enough help can be extremely stressful. Huge hormonal shifts that occur after your birth can also affect your moods, especially if you have a history of severe PMS. Then there’s the perfect storm for moms to “do it all” and expect new moms to be “blinded out” and for your mild frustration.

Knowing if these feelings are normal can also help. It's a good idea to convey your feelings to those you love and trust: your partner, your parents, any other relative or close friend. Connecting with other new parents at your birth club or in real life can help you go a long way

Make time for yourself. Let your partner or grandparent stay with your child when you visit a friend or just take a leisurely bath. Even sitting outside or going for a walk in the fresh air with your baby can be beneficial.

Leave work behind. Really! Remember it is maternity leave. Use these weeks to nurture your relationships with your family.

If the feeling persists for more than a few weeks, tell your doctor. You may have postpartum depression (PPD), a more serious condition. The causes of PPD are not fully understood, but it is not a reflection of whether you are a “good” mother or “dealing well”. Symptoms of PPD include extreme anxiety, panic attacks, changes in eating habits (excessive eating or loss of appetite), insomnia, and thoughts of harming yourself or your baby. For more insight into your mental health, take our Postpartum Depression Quiz.

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), sometimes known as Crib Death, is when a child under 1 year of age dies suddenly and without warning, usually while asleep.

What should I think?

Although SIDS is the leading cause of death in children between 1 month and 1 year of age, it is still rare. Seeds claims about 1,500 people a year are affected in the United States. SIDS usually affects children 1 to 4 months of age; 90 percent of the cases involved children under 6 months of age.

How can you reduce my child's risk?

Always put your baby to sleep on his back - not on his stomach or side. Since pediatricians and SIDS researchers began recommending the practice in 1994, SIDS mortality rates have dropped by 50%.

Sleep in the same room as your baby but not in the same bed. (Instead, use a co-slipper or remove your baby's crab, basinet or yard next to your bed))

Do not let your baby sleep with a loose bed, pillow, soft toy or crimper, which can unexpectedly cover your baby's face and affect his breathing. Keep your child in a firm, flat mattress with nothing but a pillow or toy and a sheet under it. (It is advisable to keep a thin, tight-fitting mattress pad under the sheet to protect the diaper from leaks))

Don't over-address your baby at bedtime - don't put adults on a level higher than they are comfortable. If you feel your baby peppers, warm clothing such as pajamas on his feet or a piece of cotton under a wearable blanket or slip sack - close along the bottom like a bag.

Never smoke around your baby and keep away from those who do. If you can, breastfeed your baby and try to give him a sedative when you put him to sleep.

Kids love and need to be breastfed, so don’t be discouraged. In fact, you may have already discovered that a pacifier works wonders to help your child calm down. (If you're nursing, it's best to wait until the breastfeeding system is fixed - usually about three or four weeks after birth)) "Binky" or if your finger isn't available your baby may even be able to stop his thumb. Or find the fingers.

Based on the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Knepp recommends a pacifier at bedtime and at bedtime, so that using a pacifier can reduce the risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). If not or your child does not like it will be forced to use.

Your life: Bonding:

Some mothers talk about feeling love instantly and consuming from the very beginning. It has become an existing image of what “bonding” is supposed to be. But the bond is not a single, magical delivery room moment. More than half of new mothers take longer to feel the attachment - and for good reason.

Taxes may be levied on physical experience of birth, delivery and recovery, especially if there are complications. If you don’t spend a lot of time around the kids, be fully responsible for taking care of one, worries and anxieties about getting everything right can also creep in. Your relationship with your child is not so different from your other relationships - it can take time and a lot of interaction to develop and grow feelings of attachment.

So if you look at your long-awaited baby and think you are looking at some stranger, there is no need to feel guilty. In a sense he is. Give it time and in the end you can't imagine life without Him.

If after several weeks, feelings of loneliness or even boredom persist, you may experience postpartum depression. Ten percent of new mothers suffer from this type of depression, which is mostly triggered by hormonal changes after delivery. Symptoms include insomnia, anxiety, changes in appetite, and thoughts of harming yourself or your baby, along with feelings of long-term ambiguity about motherhood.

Postpartum depression has nothing to do with your fitness as a mom and you have very little control over biochemical changes. Call your ob-gin or midwife now - don't wait until your postpartum checkup. The sooner you can ask for help, the sooner you will feel better.

Colic is uncontrollable in the crying of an otherwise healthy baby. It is thought to affect between 8 and 40 percent of children. All babies cry more than at any other time in the first three months of life, but colic is different

Some physicians define it by the Thrace rule: crying for three hours at a time, at least three times a week, for at least three consecutive weeks - usually begins between the third and sixth weeks of life. "Kaliki" episodes often come abruptly in the evening. Many babies will cry loudly, be unable to indulge, wipe their fists and draw legs. Each baby is different, but the colic usually fades by about 3 months.

What causes colic?

No one is sure. Some people theorize that it is due to the immature digestive tract of the child or due to food allergies. Again some believe that the cause is a stagnant-developing nervous system or a child’s temperament that allows him to pass easily. Another theory is that colic sometimes occurs due to an imbalance of healthy intestinal bacteria. Studies have shown that intestinal microflora is different in children with colic

What can you do about colic?

It is best to talk to your doctor about your baby's crying. She can rule out other possible causes such as bowel problems or bladder infections and she will want to see if your baby is eating and growing normally. If your child has difficulty breathing, he or she will help determine the best course of action for you.

Each child comforts differently and differently, so you may need to experiment with a few strategies to find out which one works best. Here are some tips to create a calm environment that mimics what life was like in your womb - snug, warm and relax:

Tie your baby tightly to a blanket or carry him in a carrier.
  • Shake him in your arms or swing.
  • Try to hold him upright to help him pass some gas.
  • Turn on anything that sounds loud, repetitive, such as a vacuum, dishwasher, cloth dryer, or "white noise" device
  • Take him outside to drive or ride - the speed is nice.
Other ideas: a warm bath, a warm hot water bottle or a towel placed on your baby's stomach (make sure the temperature is comfortable on his skin), or any soothing. Some parents have reported that their child's treatment symptoms are improved by an over-the-counter drug called simethicone that can reduce bowel gas. And treatment with probiotic (especially Lactobacillus rutarii) has been shown to help with some children's respiratory symptoms.

Hearing your baby cry can cause frustration and fatigue. It is helpful to find someone who can take a turn that upsets your child. If you have to put your baby in his or her safe place for a few minutes to use the bathroom (or you can cry for yourself), assure him that you will leave him alone for a few minutes, even if he cries, but not him. Going to get hurt.
