It’s always great to get some free baby stuff especially free baby diapers because they will cost a lot of money. Let’s check out together how to get them:

  • Baby fairs and expos: always check out when is the next baby fair or expo in your neighborhood because you can meet loads of vendors who will give away samples, free baby diapers and great little goodie bags for babies.
  • Always ask for diapers: if anybody asks you or calls you whether you need anything always mentions diapers. Ask for diapers as a baby shower gift. Don’t be shy, everybody knows that diapers are expensive.
  • You can also switch to cloth diapers, first they are much more environmentally friendly, second you don’t have to buy thousands of them. I agree they are more work but on the long term they will save you money.

What is cradle cap

July 192012

Many moms are scared when she notices that her little baby has cradle cap. First it’s important to know what cradle cap is and how to treat it. It may seem bad but it’s not as serious although it’s important to treat it.

First let’s see what cradle cap is:

Cradle cap (infantile or neonatal seborrhoeic dermatitis, also known as crusta lactea, milk crust, honeycomb disease) is a yellowish, patchy, greasy, scaly and crusty skin rash that occurs on the scalp of recently born babies. It is usually not itchy, and does not bother the baby. Cradle cap most commonly begins sometime in the first 3 months. Similar symptoms in older children are more likely to be dandruff than cradle cap. The rash is often prominent around the ear, the eyebrows or the eyelids. It may appear in other locations as well, where it is called seborrhoeic dermatitis rather than cradle cap. Some countries use the term pityriasis capitis for cradle cap. It is extremely common, with about half of all babies affected. Most of them have a mild version of the disorder. Severe cradle cap is rare.

If you’re interested you can aslo read about on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infant_massage

Ayurvedic medicine in ancient India taught the use of infant massage. It was also has been encouraged in China during the Qing dynasty. At present it is part of traditional childcare in South Asia and elsewhere where daily massage by mothers is seen as “instilling fearlessness, hardening bone structure, enhancing movement and limb coordination, and increasing weight”. Other areas where infant massage is regularly used are African countries and areas in the former Soviet Union. In Western culture, infant massage has been increasingly used in neonatal intensive care units for pre-term infants who are in stressful environments and have limited tactile stimulation.

Teething problems for babies

July 52012

Teething can cause a lot of trouble for babies. It’s a natural process but it’s still very painful.  It can begin when your baby is 3-month-old, it usually happens between 4 and 7 months.

According to kidshealth.org:

The first teeth to appear usually are the two bottom front teeth, also known as the central incisors. They’re usually followed 4 to 8 weeks later by the four front upper teeth (central and lateral incisors). About a month later, the lower lateral incisors (the two teeth flanking the bottom front teeth) will appear.

Next to break through are the first molars (the back teeth used for grinding food), then finally the eyeteeth (the pointy teeth in the upper jaw). Most kids have all 20 of their primary teeth by their third birthday. (If your child experiences significant delay, speak to your doctor.)

What are the teething symptoms:

The level of pain that a baby can handle will be different for each child. Some may be a lot fussier than others while they are teething. The soreness and swelling of the gums before a tooth comes through is the cause for the pain and fussiness a baby experiences during this change. These symptoms usually begin about three to five days before the tooth shows, and they disappear as soon as the tooth breaks the skin. Some babies are not even bothered by teething.
