Your baby is getting bigger by the minute. Here are a few baby care basics
to make your lives easier during this growth period.
Adjustable and comfortable, a baby sling is perfect for a growing baby. The
benefit of carrying your little one around in one of these pouches is that
it frees up your hands and also keeps your baby close to you, which
comforts and soothes her.
Pants with elastic waists.
Since she's growing at an incredible rate, think about getting pants with
stretchy waists that she can wear a little longer. This style is easy to
slip on and off during diaper changes.
A thin, soft piece of fabric may be just the thing for soothing and
comforting your little one. As your baby gets older, this blanket may end
up being his official transitional object — the precious item that provides
emotional support at naptime and bedtime and when you're away from home.
Soft small toys.
Soft toys are ideal for babies at this age. They are easy to grasp and
squeeze, and are especially helpful during the teething stage when kids
want to explore everything with their mouths. Be sure to keep all toys (as
well as soft bedding and pillows) out of your baby's crib, to reduce the
risk of SIDS.
Try to focus on the essentials, rather than the cute items you'll probably
never use. Here's to happy, clutter-free parenting!
