We want to share with you the tricks that we have been discovering to make our lives easier and in some cases to make the baby stop crying or be less uncomfortable.
THE BABY AND THE HEAT:
When hot newborn babies cry in a rather desperate way, not all babies will cry the same way but every parent ends up knowing and understanding his baby. To check if it is very hot do not ever touch hands or cheeks as they are usually quite cool and are not a reference. Place the hand on the baby’s neckline, this area will give you the correct temperature reference. When the 6 months that begin to eat solid, they have to offer water because they hydrate much less when taking fewer bottles or less breast. It is very important that they drink water in summer, as they do not usually want to offer them many times, in heavy plan yes, but it is so, he does not know that that will calm him.
CALMING A BABY:
Babies relax with noises that for adults are quite annoying as they are the dryer, the washing machine or even the extractor of the kitchen, sounds incredible, right? I had heard something about the dryer and it is really effective many times they are satiated but they are still a little nervous and you do not know how to calm them, you have already walked down the hall for half an hour and nothing works, try the dryer even today there are Apps with Sound of the dryer to sleep babies, try the App Hair dryer sounds for baby, to me it worked great!
Note: for babies older than 6 months I no longer think it works
if babies do not go to the bathroom every day you have to stimulate them and one of the ways is with the tip of a thermometer smeared in olive oil or Vaseline (eye I’ve also heard with a parsley stem But do not do it since you have substances that are not the best thing for the baby) and if you finally can not do your little things, glycerin suppositories. But it is also normal for a breastfed baby to be 6 days without doing their thing, and in principle nothing happens. I say in principle because at two days, at least my daughter, was very nervous about what we used infant suppositories of glycerin and / or powders called eupeptina that we gave daily to regulate it. He went to eat solid, especially the fruit porridge and problem solved!
Ask your pediatrician because it is really effective and is not a bad drug at all! If you still do not want to give medications, try using your lifelong methods to move your legs so that they flush the gas or knock them down on your arm (as shown below, do it when you do not finish eating). But in my point of view the most effective is the medicine you can give it up to three times a day.
REFLUX (not enough for those who have serious problems):
To avoid a little reflux and encourage digestion an essential trick is to tilt the crib so that the head is slightly higher than the rest of the body and so the baby will not choke and digest simpler. Always keep your baby upright after each feeding to prevent reflux from appearing. I tell you, this is for babies with slight reflux, if the problem is more serious, it is not enough.
MUCUS IN BABIES:
Humidifier is great for these cases, but for me it is not enough. What is great is a spray. They are very good and very well priced. You can do it only with the saline solution or with medication that says the pediatrician. If the baby is able to tolerate the mask, it is a trick, but you can face the vapor towards the mouth and nose of the baby. It is an investment that goes for long, to the minimum that they present snot, aerosol.

Parents can help children achieve their best and prepare for adult life by:
👶building their confidence and resilience
👶providing opportunities to learn and explore
👶providing safe boundaries and guidance
👶helping children learn to get along with others.
Each child is a unique individual with their own temperament and qualities. Parents need to be flexible and adapt their parenting to meet their child’s needs.
Being a parent can change you as a person. While all parents bring strengths and skills to their parenting, many find they grow and learn ‘on the job’, just as children grow and learn. They come to understand more about children and what they need at each stage of their development. Parents can also learn a lot about themselves and what helps them be their best as a parent.
How we were raised and the relationships we have with our own parents are often the biggest influences on our parenting. You might have memories about what worked well in your own childhood and what was important for you. You can repeat patterns from the past or do things differently for your own children. It’s up to you. You can decide the kind of parent you want to be.
Our parenting can also be influenced by:
👪our culture or religion
👩👦👦what we see friends, family and others doing
👨👩👧👦images of parents and families we see in the media
👩👧our life circumstances, e.g. health, job, income
👨👩👧👧the amount of practical or emotional support we have from family, friends or services.
The most important thing you can do as a parent is show children you love them.
Enjoying time together and getting to know each other builds your relationship and a strong foundation for parenting. ❤️
It is the presence of high blood sugar (diabetes) that begins or is diagnosed for the first time during pregnancy.
Symptoms have been extended.
In most cases there are no symptoms. The diagnosis is made during a routine prenatal study.
Moderate symptoms such as extreme thirst or tremors may occur. Regularly these symptoms do not endanger the life of the pregnant woman.
Other symptoms may include:
*Frequent infections, including bladder, *vagina, and skin
Pregnancy hormones can block the work that insulin does. When this happens, blood sugar levels in a pregnant woman can increase.
You are at increased risk of gestational diabetes if:
*You are over 25 years old when you become pregnant
*It comes from an ethnic group with a higher risk, such as Hispanic American, African American, Native American, Southeast Asian or Pacific Islander
*Have a family history of diabetes
*She gave birth to a baby who weighed more than 9 pounds (4 kg) or who had a congenital anomaly
*Have high blood pressure
*Has too much amniotic fluid
*You have had a miscarriage or stillbirth unexplained
*She was overweight before pregnancy
Increased weight during pregnancy
Polycystic ovarian syndrome.
The goals of treatment are to keep blood sugar (glucose) within normal limits during pregnancy and to make sure the fetus is healthy.
Your health care provider must keep you and your baby under control throughout your pregnancy. With fetal monitoring, the size and health of the fetus are evaluated.
DIET AND EXERCISE
The best way to improve your diet is to consume a variety of healthy foods. You should learn to read food labels and review them when making decisions about foods. Talk to your provider if you are a vegetarian or follow any other special diet.
In general, when you have gestational diabetes your diet should:
Be moderate in fat and protein.
Provide carbohydrates through foods that include fruits, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates (such as bread, cereal, pasta, and rice).
Include small amounts of foods that contain lots of sugar, such as soft drinks, fruit juices and sweet breads.
If dietary management does not control blood sugar (glucose) levels, medications taken or insulin treatment may be prescribed to control diabetes.
Most women with gestational diabetes will not need medications or insulin, but some will.

Having a kid with allergies is something that requires lots of patience and commitment. Because
What is an allergy or an allergic reaction?!
A damaging immune response by the body to a substance, especially pollen, fur, a particular food, or dust, to which it has become hypersensitive.
Those “Invaders” in our organism makes our body react causing allergy symptoms such as rashes, breathing shortage, swollen muscles and in the worse cases Anaphylactic reactions (anaphylaxis) are sudden, widespread, potentially severe and life-threatening allergic reactions. Anaphylactic reactions often begin with a feeling of uneasiness, followed by tingling sensations and dizziness.
The main food or products that present higher risks of causing an allergy are those containing milk, some fruits, eggs, fish, dried fruits, nuts, chocolate, and wheat.
That Is why it’s highly recommended start introducing this food after the first year of age. Also, dry fruit could cause our kid choking with that if is not older enough to chewing food.
It’s better to introduce new foods to our baby doing it little by little and being aware of the outcome or be suspicious of any allergy reaction.
Are some allergies that disappear in time that our kids growing and their liver mature and get used to the food. But it’s highly recommended making an appointment with your doctor or pediatrician for testing and treatment.
