Should I Breastfeed My Baby?

Many expectant Moms ask themselves whether or not they should breastfeed their baby. The vast majority of medical professionals will give them a resounding yes when asked this question, at least for most mothers. For the majority of new mothers, breastfeeding is highly recommended. But it is not recommended for all mothers. Mothers who are HIV positive or who have AIDS should not breastfeed their baby because the HIV virus can be passed to the baby through breast milk.

Many expectant Moms ask themselves whether or not they should breastfeed their baby. The vast majority of medical professionals will give them a resounding yes when asked this question, at least for most mothers. For the majority of new mothers, breastfeeding is highly recommended. But it is not recommended for all mothers. Mothers who are HIV positive or who have AIDS should not breastfeed their baby because the HIV virus can be passed to the baby through breast milk. Breastfeeding is also not recommended for mothers undergoing cancer treatment; as well as mothers who have untreated Hepatitis B and mothers who have active tuberculosis that hasn’t been under treatment for at least two weeks.

I’m not sure when breastfeeding fell out of favor in the United States. Until baby formula was developed in 1867 by Henri Nestlé of the Nestle Company, breastfeeding was the only viable option for feeding Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens. If a mother was unable to feed her own baby, a “wet nurse” was found to feed the baby for that mother.

The arrival of baby formula was welcome because it meant there was a more viable feeding alternative for Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens whose mothers were unable to breastfeed them. But somewhere along the way breastfeeding fell out of favor and baby formula became the favored method for feeding all Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens. How did it happen? Some people think it was effective marketing campaigns from baby formula manufacturers. Other people feel it was a result of more mothers entering the workforce, which made breastfeeding a baby difficult.

Thankfully, the trend today is for mothers to breastfeed their Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens, even if it is only for a few months. When my first child was born nearly 25 years ago, breastfeeding was endorsed and the benefits of it were well explained to me, but there was still a lot of “disapproval” if a person dared to breastfeed in public. It seemed to be okay only if a mother breastfed somewhere private where nobody else could see her. The only way that is possible is if a mother who is breastfeeding stays home all the time and never goes out in public, which is a ridiculous thing to expect.

My mother was one of the people that was not thrilled with my decision to breastfeed. The reason she wasn’t thrilled is that she hated it when I breastfed my baby anywhere other than in my home with nobody else around. I ignored all the disapproval though, and am very happy I did. My son has not had any problems with allergies, something that has plagued me my entire life (I was not breastfed when I was a baby), and I think breastfeeding helped give him protection. Studies have shown that protection and resistance to allergies is one of the many benefits of breastfeeding.

Why should a mother breastfeed her baby? Even though experts recommend breastfeeding for a minimum of six months, (breastfeeding for one year is ideal), even a few months of breastfeeding can impart significant benefits to both the mother and the baby. First of all, it’s the perfect food for a baby because nature designed it that way. This means a baby is much less likely to have problems tolerating breast milk than tolerating baby formula.

What benefits does breastfeeding give a mother? It’s costs less than baby formula and there isn’t the bother of making and heating formula for the baby. Breastfeeding can also help a new mom shed pregnancy pounds because a Mom whose body is making breast milk burns more calories. Breastfeeding also helps the uterus return to its normal size more quickly because oxytocin is released into the bloodstream while a Mom is breastfeeding. In addition, studies have shown that Moms who breastfeed their Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens have extra protection against developing cervical and breast cancer than moms who have never breastfed.

What are some of the benefits of breastfeeding for a baby? A baby is much less likely to be allergic to breast milk than allergic to baby formula. Also, colostrum, which gives a baby immunity against viruses and bacteria, is present in breast milk for several days after the baby is born. Studies have shown that breastfed Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens get sick less often than formula-fed Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens, contract less infections such as ear infections and get fewer viruses. This is because breast milk has antibodies in it which helps protect Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens against infections, viruses, bacteria, and disease.

High quality and easier to use breast pumps make it easier for moms to pump and save breast milk for their Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens when they are away from home – a great thing for moms who have to return to work but still want to provide their baby with breast milk. There are even several breast milk banks in North America that store frozen breast milk for Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens whose mothers cannot make their own breast milk for their baby or cannot feed their baby the breast milk they do produce because of medications they are taking.

 

Should the Dad Attend the Birth of His Baby?

Would most moms rather have the dad at the birth of their baby or would they rather have another woman with her? Sorry dads!

Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens,pregnancy,birth

Not so long ago a dad-to-be would pace up and down outside the labor room and would be admitted only after the birth. Modern practice is to assume the dad-to-be should be at the birth to offer support. But an increasing number of dads, moms and midwives would prefer he stayed outside.

Some of the reasons given are:
• Some moms feel the loss of dignity and 'not feeling attractive' is sufficient reason to banish their partners to the corridor.
• Some dads think the sight of baby being born will put them off sex with their partner in the future. Others can't bear to see their partner in pain.

Researchers at the University of Toronto suggest that women have a happier childbirth if they are supported by a trained woman rather than a stressed father-to-be. This woman could be your mother, a friend who's had a baby of her own or a doula (a professional female birth partner); her presence can have a calming effect on the mom-to-be.

Most men, however, do want to be present and, after all, the baby is half theirs. Get it right and the man's help can prove to be invaluable and many couples find it is an incredibly bonding experience.

Advice For Dads:
Go to the pre-natal classes and learn all you can about the birth, what the mom goes through, and how you can help.

Your only concern is your partner and the baby. You are there solely for them, and to help them in any way you can. It is difficult finding words of encouragement and it will feel as though your presence is not helping or appreciated - but it is.

You may see a side of your partner you've never seen before. She may shout at you, even swear at you. Take it, go with the flow, bite your tongue. If you were going through what she's going through you would probably be as bad if not worse! No, delete the 'probably'!

 

Should You Buy A Vibrating Chair For Your Baby?

Many people say parenting is the toughest, and most important, job in the world. I agree. A baby is definitely a bundle of joy, but there are times when two hands just aren’t enough and you need some help in soothing and keeping your baby happy. Thankfully, now there are a number of items that make life easier for parents. Vibrating chairs are one such godsend.

Many people say parenting is the toughest, and most important, job in the world. I agree. A baby is definitely a bundle of joy, but there are times when two hands just aren’t enough and you need some help in soothing and keeping your baby happy. Thankfully, now there are a number of items that make life easier for parents. Vibrating chairs are one such godsend.

I am all for attachment parenting and do believe that we have too much equipment for Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens these days. Entire households seem to be focused on items that allow a parent to get away with little or no physical contact with their little ones. But, at the other end of the spectrum, we have parents (especially Mothers) who are so tired they are ready to drop. There has to be a happy middle path between the two.

One mother stated things very well:

“When my second baby came along, I was totally enthralled with attachment parenting. I would carry her around myself and she even slept with us. By the time she was 6 months old, she had made up her mind to be carried around ALL day. And she was such an alert baby that she hardly slept at all. So, much as I hated having to use a piece of equipment to take care of my long-awaited baby, I succumbed due to sheer, bone-deep exhaustion.”

“I selected a vibrating chair after a lot of research. I had read a whole lot of reviews - some chairs were too ‘bouncy’, and many were battery-hogs. I finally went for a beautiful, blue vibrating chair that also converts to a toddler chair. And it was a surprise: the moment I turned it on and adjusted the position, her eyes sort of half-closed, and in a moment, she was sleeping quietly and peacefully! Because she was getting bigger, I was finding it difficult to carry her around, especially when I had to cook, and do my laundry. I could now safely leave her in her vibrating chair while I carried on with my work. I selected a type of chair that has a strap in the front, much like car seats do. This keeps her safe and I don’t have to worry about her opening the buckle, or wriggling out. I think what makes this product useful is that it’s a rocker, a sleeper, and an extra hand - all rolled into one.”

The main reason why Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens like vibrating chairs is that it gives them an indescribable feeling of safety and familiarity. Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens like movement. This is mostly because they have been moving about in a swimming pool until they came out into the world- a very noisy swimming pool at that! Everything that the mother says and does creates a vibration; such as the sound of her voice, her heartbeat, even her breathing. When the baby comes out, he or she enters a silent, stationary world where things are not very familiar. Recreating that familiar world by moving, rocking or vibrating, calms the baby.

The biggest downside to a vibrating chair is the number of batteries it uses – especially if you’re using the chair every day. Consider using rechargeable batteries. They’ll cost you less money and are a better choice for the environment.

A vibrating baby chair can never take the place of the love and warmth of a baby’s parents, but it can help on those days nothing else seems to calm or soothe your baby or when Mom needs some time to cook a meal or take a well deserved break.
