What I’ve Learnt…

on February 26, 2013

I bought another parenting/pregnancy book yesterday. I’m not sure if I’m going overboard; if I am I’d give the excuse that I waited 3 years to get pregnant so its okay!

If anything I think I’ve been overly cautious over the last 6 and a half months. I’ve only just started buying the birth essentials that we/baby will need – nappies, nappy bags, cotton wool, wipes. And only enough to get us through a few days.

So this latest book is written by Jo Frost and is about confident parenting for the first year. There’s a section concerning what advice Supernanny gives about what you and the baby need immediately – its helpful to be organised!

I’ve also read the first 3 month section as I reckon I might be too busy during those months.

And what I’ve learnt is:

  • Supporting a newborn’s neck is not just because their head is far too big for their neck and body it’s also because if they don’t feel supported there they startle. Its like the falling reflex.
  • Breast milk, during a feeding session, starts out fast and thin -giving baby a drink. Then it slows and thickens up with fats – the meal!
