Baby Spit Up, What Causes It?

On April 20, 2014, in Newborn Stuff, by Amanda Mitchell

Why do babies spit up? It’s because they are babies and they don’t have total control over their body. When they get full from feeding milk, they tend to spit out. Baby spit up is also a term for infant reflux. This is actually a combination of milk and saliva. When the baby gets full and they weren’t able to burp properly, the tendency is for them to spit out some of the milk they consumed.

Another reason why baby spit up is because of air they swallowed. They swallow some air when they feed in bottles, when they cry too much, and when they are gassy. For us to know if they have excess air in their tummy, we have to listen to the sound of their stomach. We can also topple their tummy with a finger or tap it gently to recognize if there is a sound of air. Usually when babies look bloated, it is a sign of too much milk or too much air inside them.

For moms to avoid having their baby throwing up milk, we need to burp them every after feeding. To burp them is very simple, we just need to lay them down on a flat surface with their tummy facing down, then gently tap their back or rub it in an upward motion to let the air out. If the baby is not comfortable with this position and wants to be carried, you can also burp them by carrying them with their tummy facing your shoulder. Tap or rub their back gently in an upward motion. When you hear a good long burp, then that means he released the air already.

If the baby is already capable to sit, you can also burp them in that kind of position. Just let them sit on your lap and don’t shake or sway them because it could make them throw up more. Once they release the air, you will notice that they would be more comfortable.

Do You Know How to Stop Breastfeeding?

On April 17, 2014, in Free Baby stuff, by Amanda Mitchell

Most working moms would want to know how to stop breastfeeding especially if they need to go back to work after their maternity leave. This enters the process of weaning a child. This process might be easy for some moms, but for some it could be a stressful process especially if the baby doesn’t want to let go of his or her mom’s milk.

Stopping breastfeeding is not an overnight process. For some, it could be a short term task. For other moms, it could go on for several weeks, and even for some it would take months to successfully stop from breastfeeding. When to stop breastfeeding couldn’t be really determined right away. As moms, we need to be patient and we have to be keen in observing our babies so we could do better strategy on how to stop breastfeeding.

As we introduce solid foods, we may notice that the breastfeeding time is gradually minimized. This is simply because the time spent on breastfeeding is already being spent in eating. Solid foods can easily make the babies feel full. The normal time intervals when we do breastfeeding could be lengthened and this is a good way to start stopping your baby from breastfeeding.

After 6 months, aside from first foods, you can also start giving your baby formula milk as a substitute for breast milk. Formula milk like first foods can also make the baby feel full. Instead of offering breast milk, give the formula milk for 3 to 5 consecutive days and offer your breast milk only once a day— only before bedtime or during the wee hours of the night or when you are comfortable. If you see improvement happening on the process then you can continue what you are doing until you can finally stop breastfeeding.

So, once your baby is ready to eat, do you know how to make baby food that is suitable for them?

Remember, you are introducing something new to them and their taste buds are not yet fully developed to respond accordingly to a new taste their tongue will touch. It is better to search first or ask advice from experienced moms on what kind of baby food diet to prepare.

Usually the first foods for babies are vegetables like squash, potato, carrots, and other vegetables that are easy to digest. You can start by steaming or boiling these veggies and mashing them so that babies can swallow them easily and that it would be safer on their tummy. Avoid giving your babies vegetables like broccoli and beans because sometimes these veggies could cause allergies. There is a certain age when babies could be ready for these kinds of vegetables.

Fruits like bananas and apples are also good for your baby as first foods. These are very nutritious and very easy to prepare. No need for them to cook, just mash it and give it to your baby gradually using a baby spoon. So you see, how make baby food is so easy.

Baby Skin Problems: Infant Acne, Pimples and Rash

On March 23, 2014, in Newborn Stuff, by Amanda Mitchell

Do you have any idea that your baby can have acne and pimples like adults do? It sounds a little bit funny and weird but it’s true. They said that infant acne is very common for babies. It can be present at birth or would show up after few weeks.

Infant acne is a white or red bump pimple-like surrounded by red skin and can be found on baby’s cheeks, forehead, chin and back. It will clear up in few weeks or months. There is medication for infant acne but use it only when prescribed by your doctor. Over-the-counter acne medication may worsen it. Don’t scrub when cleaning the affected area because it may irritate the skin more. Use mild baby soap and water to clean the area. Oily lotions can make the acne worse, so avoid using it.

Baby pimples and infant acne are just similar. According to some studies, baby pimples are normal because the baby’s skin is still adjusting to the weather outside the tummy. Sometimes it is caused by mother’s hormones transferred to babies. It could also be caused by allergy to certain products like cleansers, wipes, shampoos etc. Organic baby products are best for babies so try to switch from chemical based to organic based products. Sometimes, laundry detergent and fabric softener’s chemicals can contribute to baby’s pimples and infant acne. Use mild laundry detergent and fabric softener in washing baby’s stuff.

Do not be too worried if you see baby acne or rash in some body parts of your baby. Treat it like you treat an ordinary rash on your baby’s skin. Use mild baby soap when cleaning the affected areas. Do it in gently and pat dry using soft towel. Do you know that breast milk can cure baby pimples or infant acne? This is the most natural way in treating them. Simply rub few drops of breast milk on affected areas and you might be surprised how it will cure them.
