Guide for first-time parents

New parents, congratulations on your little bundle of joy! The arrival of your newborn baby is undoubtedly exciting and challenging at the same time. Don't worry, first-time parents, LYC will be your trustworthy companion.

Sleep Tips for Newborn Baby

The first thing to keep in mind is your baby's sleep habits. While they may look angelic and carefree when they sleep, sleep is vital to their development. Remember to put your baby to sleep on his or her back to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Also, place your baby's head in a different direction in the crib each night, which reduces pressure on the head and allows for more even skull development.

Importance of Tummy Time

Tummy time is an important part of your baby's development. Don't underestimate this seemingly simple action, it plays an important role in promoting the healthy development of your baby. It can start as soon as your baby comes home from the hospital. You can interact with your baby as you place them close to your belly or chest, so that they can feel the skin-to-skin contact. This not only helps develop your baby's senses, but also enhances the bond between you and your baby.

Give Your Baby A Warm Massage!

Another activity that babies and parents will love is the baby massage. This is a great way to create a stronger bond between you and your baby. At the same time, baby massage can also help with your baby's sensory development. For new parents, it is also a good way to increase parental confidence. So, why not give it a try and give your baby a warm massage!

Importance of Having A Solid Support Network

Raising a baby can be difficult for new parents, but don't worry, you're not alone. Nurses, doctors and lactation specialists are here to help you, whether it's about basic care or with questions about your specific situation. Remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question, just ask and they will patiently answer your questions.

Of course, in this joyful journey, there will be times when you feel powerless. Don't worry, it's wise to seek help promptly. Whether it's consulting your pediatrician or seeking help from family and friends, it's important to have a solid support network. As long as someone is there to support you, new parents can easily get through even the toughest days!

Having Baby Feeding Schedule for Your Baby

When it comes to feeding, don't forget to satisfy your baby’s hunger, so be prepared to feed frequently. Newborns generally need to be nursed every 2-3 hours. Although your newborn may lose some weight, don't worry, this is normal. Over time, most babies regain their birth weight in two weeks. However, you still need to pay attention to your baby's breastfeeding habits! Learning more about breastfeeding will help you take better care of your babies.

Communicate With Your Baby

Finally, communicating with your baby is also important. Although they are young, babies express their emotions through different cries. Over time, you will learn the meaning of different types of cries and learn how to soothe them. Communicating more with your newborn can make them feel safe and loved, and it can also enhance the relationship between mommy and baby.

The arrival of a baby makes life so much more fun, and while it can be a little challenging at times, parents are rewarded with every smile and developmental milestone.
