Posted on by admin | in babysitting

Whether you’re getting ready to have your first baby or start your first babysitting job, learning to properly and safely care for an infant can be more complicated than it appears on the surface. Because the flood of information and sheer volume of conflicting reports can be both confusing and nerve-wracking, the process of learning about babies can be more strenuous than actually caring for them. In the interest of simplifying baby care and making the concept less intimidating, these 30 blog entries have been collected to offer practical, real-life baby care advice to those who need it most.

Infant Sleep

According to the National Sleep Foundation, newborns can sleep between 10 and 18 hours per day. As babies get older, periods of wakefulness increase and get longer, but babies still spend a significant portion of their time sleeping. Because sleep is such an important part of a baby’s early life, it’s important that new parents and caregivers have a basic understanding of infant sleep cycles and sleep safety.

Newborn Care

Caring for a brand new baby is a bit more daunting than looking after an older one for many people. Newborns are so delicate and fragile that they can make parents and caregivers with limited experience a bit nervous. These five blog entries detail the basics of newborn-specific care, helping to demystify babies and reassure those who will be looking after them.

Feeding

Whether the baby under your care is breast-fed, formula-fed or getting old enough to begin experimenting with more solid foods, feeding a baby properly is essential to her health and ability to grow. Thriving babies are fed regularly and well, a task that these five blog entries help to explain and simplify.

Changing Diapers

One of the messier aspects of caring for a baby is dealing with the necessary evil that is diapering. Unless you’re practicing elimination communication, your baby will be wearing – and soiling – diapers.  By perusing the content in these five blog entries, you’ll be able to deftly handle any mess that comes your way.

Baby Bathing

The prospect of combining a delicate infant with a potentially dangerous bathtub is justifiably scary for new parents and caregivers. Armed with the information in these five blog entries, you’ll be confidently bathing the baby under your care in no time.
