Baby Slings and Your Baby - Ensuring Safety and Comfort! Positional asphyxia or suffocation tends to happen to babies when their chin is tightly pressed against their chest. This position restricts airflow which can then cause suffocation. This often happens when the baby is put on a sling that is why parents or anyone who uses baby slings should take the necessary precaution when using baby slings. Before you head out the door, you have to check that your babys airway is clear and that there is no obstruction. Observe your babys regular breathing, even when he or she is sleeping in your sling.&&& Here are other safety measures that you need to take before you put your baby in a sling: Baby slings are often made of sturdy materials to support the weight of your baby. But you should never be too complacent. You have to constantly check your baby sling for any sign of wear or damage before you put your baby in it. If you see any tear or damage and you get dubious as to whether you are still going to use it, dont. Never put your childs safety at risk. &&& Before you get started in wearing your baby sling, read the enclosed manual or instructions. If your carrier comes with an instructional video, watch it before trying out the sling. Whenever possible, you can ask the sales clerk to demonstrate how to properly wear the baby sling so that youll not be left clueless on how you should wear it. If you will board a moving vehicle, remove your baby from your sling. These contraptions are not approved as safety seats and therefore should not be worn as alternate to baby carriers used for vehicles. &&& When you are around or near any mechanical equipment, take extra caution. The tail of your baby sling could get caught on the machine. When you are wearing your sling, do not get too near open flames. The fabric that is often used in baby slings is not flame resistant as they are often made from materials that are comfortable for babies. This also goes to say that you should never wear baby slings when you are cooking or when you are holding hot beverage in your hand. Never engage yourself in very rigorous activity when you are wearing your baby sling. You should not run, bike, jog or hike when you are wearing your baby in a sling. If you plan to bring your baby during these activities, try to use strollers or backpack baby carriers instead. Your baby will be safer that way.&&& Baby Travel Tips - Christmas is approaching...The festive season often involves visiting relatives and hence the word \"travel\", which on itself is alright but put next to the word \"baby\", that can mean things get a tiny bit more complicated...or certainly less practical. So here are a few tips and a tick list as to how to keep (you and) your baby relaxed when travelling without you requiring an extra pair of arms or a mule for the excess of baggage.&&& 1st, transporting your baby: If your baby is younger than 15 months, you might opt for a baby carrier: which maintains a bond between your little one and yourself. However past a certain weight, it is definitely preferable to use a buggy. Strollers are ideal for going on holidays as they are the lightest pushchairs available -so thats especially good for public transport. If youre mostly going to use a car, then a good idea is to go for a baby travel system which includes a detachable baby car seat to a pushchair base. For other baby car accessories, Hello Baby advises having a look at Sunshine Kids line of products -which are pretty functional.&&& Be prepared for all baby needs (critical point!) So now that you can actually transport your baby, you obviously have to worry about how to keep him/ her happy. Without oversimplifying babies, I would sum up the problem in 4 words: food-potty-goodie-nap. So first, it is always helpful to have some of his favourite snacks and plenty of water or some milk at hand (perhaps involving a bottle insulator), together with some toys that particularly retain his attention and interest. As for the toiletry issue: of course nappies are not to be forgotten (in which case a baby changing mat could help) but from the age of 9-10 months, a travel potty is just *indispensable*. Nap time is important, so try not to go on too long a day out. Also different baby travel cots exist that are easily transportable and can provide your baby with a cosy place to sleep when on holidays.&&& Adapt your rhythm to your babys - If youre going on a day out, remember that too many sounds and sights may be slightly overwhelming for your little toddler, hence it is good to adapt your rhythm to your kids. Baby travel safety - When travelling it is good practice to always carry a first aid kit -or a few elements of it. And depending on where you are going to stay, it may be worth bringing a few drawer/ cupboard/ fridge locks: they are usually very light products -in which the Clippasafe brand specialises, although Prince Lionheart products are doing quite well too.&&& Guide To Buying A Baby Carrier! After nine months of pregnancy, you are now ready to bring your baby into the world. The first nine months have been hard enough, now as soon as the baby is out, things get harder and more complicated. There are a lot of things that you should learn about and you will need new things to purchase for you and your baby. While the process of buying things for your baby can be \"super fun\", you need to be very careful in choosing the products that you will purchase for your child, especially when it comes to baby carriers. &&& Baby carriers are very significant pieces of equipment that can be both comfortable and convenient for you and your baby. Before you buy baby carriers, you have to consider a couple of things: Your baby carrier should be comfortable for you. When you buy baby carriers, you have to try them out at the store and imagine how it would feel like if you have your baby on that carrier. For a baby carrier to be comfortable, it has to hold the baby high up and nestled close to your body. There are a lot of carriers available that have straps that hung on your shoulders and while they may seem easy and comfortable, they can be very strenuous on your shoulder especially if you have an actual baby put inside. Buy baby carriers that have wider straps because it distributes the weight. &&& Your baby should feel comfortable when put in the baby carrier. There have been a lot of researches done on the proper positioning of the baby when they are put on carriers. It is suggested that if you want to buy baby carriers, you have to opt for carriers that holds your baby against your body with proper support at the back (in the spinal area for newborns) so much so that babies are actually reclining on their carriers. &&& Your baby carrier should serve its purpose. This is one important factor in buying baby carriers. Your preference for baby slings should depend on when you plan to use your baby carriers. For instance, if you are planning to use it as you go around the house, and then you obviously need a baby carrier that will be very comfortable for you so that even if you carry your child for long hours, you will not feel uncomfortable. To sum up, you need to be careful when choosing the right baby carrier for you.&&& Helpful Tips On Choosing The Best Baby Carrier! Different parents have different preferences when it comes to baby carriers. This varied preference is actually made possible by the many innovations and enhancements available in the market today. The relevant question now is: How do you choose which carrier is best for you and your baby? If youre utterly clueless on how you can choose the best baby carrier, answer these basic questions that I compiled to help moms like you.&&& 1. Who will use the baby carrier? Are you going to wear it? If so, then your personal comfort should always be taken into consideration before you decide on which baby carrier you have to purchase. There are a lot of baby wearing options that you can choose from. In choosing the carriers, you have to also take note of your body shape as this would greatly determine which type is best for you. You also have to ask yourself if you would prefer to have the babys weight equally distributed on both shoulders or if you would rather go for the one-shoulder sling design. &&& 2. How old is your baby now? How long do you think will you use your carrier? If your baby is newborn, then you need to buy a baby carrier that will accommodate your babys age and size. But before you grab the nearest newborn baby carrier, you also have to ask yourself if you would like your baby carrier to fit a toddler as well (since your baby will not remain newborn forever). Some baby carriers are only appropriate for infants between the age 3-6 months and they are rendered unusable after that. If you plan to use your baby carrier longer, look for one that can accommodate your child at his or her current age and as the baby grows. &&& 3. When do you plan to use the carrier? Will you be using it even if youre outside? If you want to bring your baby when you run errands or when you pick up your older child from school, then the sling type baby carrier is best for you. However, if you are an active parent and you plan to bring our baby during hikes, while you work or while you travel, then the one that supports your childs weight over your two shoulders should be your best option. It is more comfortable as it would lessen the tension that will be imposed on either shoulder with a sling carrier.&&& To Sling or Not to Sling - Carrying your baby in a sling or pouch is also referred to as baby wearing. There are a number of benefits to baby wearing. Our babies start out in the uterus for a period of nine months, where our breath and heartbeats are their constant companion which makes them feel warm and safe. But once they are born, it is a completely new world for them and us as well. Fortunately for us, we can baby wear, which in a way simulates the womb and brings the baby right back to us. Baby wearing provides that closeness again, while providing baby with benefits to development, both emotionally and physically. \"The fourth trimester,\" which is what this first period after birth is sometimes referred to, and for good reason. It is an adjustment period for us and a totally new period for the baby as well as they transition into this new world and it is a very good time to provide the need and extra comfort of baby wearing at this time. Baby wearing is not limited to just the mother, but partners or caregivers can baby wear. Allowing a bonding between them and baby as well.&&& \"Oxytocin, has been referred to as the great facilitator of life by some researchers.\" Oxytocin also affects emotional, cognitive, and social behaviors thus when baby wearing it stimulates the emotional feeling of happiness in the baby and every parent likes a happy baby. This also results in a more intimate parental bond. Bonding may be the biggest and best reason for baby wearing, but there are other reasons as well. One of which is convenience. How nice it is to just place the baby in the Sling Baby Carrier or whichever type you have chosen, and off you go to do cleaning, shopping, walking, hiking or whatever it is that you need to do all the while you are bonding and positively impacting your babys well being and development.
