Goodnight Baby: Where should your little one sleep?

August 20th, 2015

nursing green top closerBefore baby is born, most parents have started to plan where their child will sleep. They have considered whether to put to a bassinet in their room, a crib in baby’s room or whether to co-sleep. Often plans can change once baby makes his appearance. Each child has a unique personality and different needs.

Many babies sleep best with Mom and Dad close by. Some doctors caution that babies should not sleep in bed with their parents due to risk of suffocation. wheel-product5In this situation, a co-sleeper is the most prudent option. A co-sleeper is a type of bassinet that attaches to your bed. It is close enough that you can easily reach your baby and breastfeed as needed, while keeping you on a separate surface for safety.

Another options is to put a traditional bassinet, cradle or crib in your room. 12During the first few weeks, a smaller space may be of comfort to him. Either way, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that baby sleeps in the same room as his parents for the first 4-6 months to help reduce the risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).

Milk Nursingwear wants you to remember:

  • Keep baby’s crib free of pillows, blankets, bumpers and toys.
  • Breastfeeding helps to reduce the risk of SIDS.

In the end, the best place to bed baby down is the spot where all three of you will get the best night’s sleep.

wbw2015-logo-m2The first week of August is World Breastfeeding Week. 2015 is the 23rd year of this celebration. Each year, from August 1st through the 7th, breastfeeding is observed around the world. The goal of WBW is to support, protect and promote breastfeeding for all women.

According to the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action, “This World Breastfeeding Week, WABA calls for concerted global action to support women to combine breastfeeding and work. Whether a woman is working in the formal, non-formal or home setting, it is necessary that she is empowered in claiming her and her baby’s right to breastfeed.”1843_11-710social

Baby Product Recalls

July 16th, 2015

We at Milk Nursingwear know nothing is more important than your little one’s safety.  Each year many baby related products are recalled due to not meeting national safety standards. It’s important to stay up to date and protect your family from any hidden dangers.

You should make an effort to regularly check out listings for product recalls, especially if you choose to shop at consignment stores or garage sales or decide to accept hand-me-downs from friends and family.

One good place to start – the government regulated websites that list all products recalled in the United States.

There are also a couple of great parenting websites that make these recalls a little easier to navigate.

bQyZAs6ISafe Kids Worldwide compiles a monthly as well as a yearly listing of recalls specifically impacting child and baby products.

logo_200x200BabyCenter takes a different approach.  They have created a Product Recall Finder which is a searchable database.

No matter where you choose to get informed, make it a priority for the loved ones in your life.
