Better You can ask your doctor. But there are montessories, playschools, pre-nurseries which are giving seductives for the crying kids...You can ask with them also.

hi gauri..

Firstly, how are u and ur babies doing. Are u back to work?

Well, abt medicines for sleep. I am really not sure if u shuld go ahead with it. Yes a lot of parents do that so they can have some peace. Infact, i was even aprrehensive abt giving colic aid to my daughter, who is 2 now, as that causes drowsiness. Infact , my ped simply put it, want a good nites sleep..give it to ur child.. very sacastically. Though i longed for some sleep in the first 8-10 months of Anushas life i realised that i wanted a healthy child and not just a lil sleep. Today she is 2 and knock on wood, Sleeps at 9:30 up at 08:00 and sleeps thru the night.
SO i dont think u really need it, all u need is patience.Think about it as an investment towards ur childs future and health. After , i believe, all we can give our children is health : physical, emotional and mental health.

Don' t use it. Don' t even buy it. My son is almost 2. And I can tell you that I have not had ONE NIGHT' S proper sleep in the last 2 years. First, he would wake up for feeds, now he still gets disturbed because of gas or because he feels hot / cold.

But, I' d rather that he is conscious enough to wake me up if he is in pain or uncomfortable, rather than sedating him so I can get a good night' s sleep.

I know it' s tough not getting proper rest, while caring for children and doing work during the day time. But, hang in there. You' ll be proud of the mother you' ve been. Don' t get influenced by your friend.

NO MEDICINE SHOULD BE GIVEN REGULARLY TO INFANTS AND TODDLERS, LET ALONE SEDATIVES. YOUR FRIEND IS SETTING HER CHILD UP FOR LIFE-ALTERING ILLNESSES AND PROBLEMS. Friends of mine sedate their infants on long flights. I don' t even do that.

Even the appetite boosting multi-vitamin drops that the doc prescribes has to be discontinued after a month, so HOW CAN ANYONE GIVE SEDATIVES TO A BABY ???

Feeding pattern
The feeding pattern of a newborn is as on demand. Breastfeeding is best choice for them. Exclusive breastfeeding should be done for 6 months. You should be nursing eight to 12 times per day during about the first month. In the beginning,you can nurse 10-15 minutes on each breast, then vary the time as necessary.When milk supply is established, it should be on demand. ... - Ranjana Solanki [View Message]
Motherly instincts
A motherly instinct helps a mother to know whether her baby is hungry or not. it is an inbuilt mechanism and is always correct. Listening to a baby' s cry, a mother can tell the reason for crying. When a baby is hungry, he will be sucking his fingers or make suckling sounds. ... - Samaira Reddy [View Message]
