• How to bond with newborn while my wife is breastfeeding?

    Best answer: Your baby is a week and a half old, right now all she cares about is eating and sleeping, nothing more. When my son was young he was the same way.

    Best answer: Your baby is a week and a half old, right now all she cares about is eating and sleeping, nothing more. When my son was young he was the same way. As she ages she'll start showing her real personality and her life won't revolve around breastfeeding. She'll look to you for entertainment and fun the same way she looks to your wife for food right now. Just be there for your baby, hold her, talk to her, sing to her, dance with her. You may not realize it now because she's so unresponsive to things, but she's learning who she can trust and who loves her. Give her all the attention you can because it'll pay off huge in just a few short months.

    Best answer: Teenage mums can be very successful mothers and still have careers when parenting permits.
    I used to work with a woman who had a baby at 14. I knew her in her 20s and she was doing well, raising a healthy, happy daughter, working in a responsible office job and studying towards a business qualification. How she managed, I will never know but she did. I have no doubt you can too.
    On the breastfeeding question, I am not in a position to advise though, as an uncle and great uncle to MANY, I have come to the conclusion that the job of children/babies is to push their parents as far as they can, to establish where the boundaries are and how they can get the most of whatever they want. The job of parents is to establish where the boundaries SHOULD be, not where the child wants them to be, and to make those boundaries very clear and consistent.
    You cannot be available on demand every two hours all the time. It affects your ability to be a good mother and an effective parent. You have breastfed for long enough to form a bond and to give your baby the best possible start in life. Do you think it could be time to start introducing bottled formula feeds? Could the gap between feeds be extended with harming your baby? This will cause screams and tantrums at first but this is a baby's way of pushing the boundaries until you give in. It is designed to stress you so you have to be very determined. They will adapt.
    It is not you being selfish. It is you being a responsible parent and slowly teaching your child that they can't have everything they want all of the time. You will always give them everything they need, including your love and, in this case, including a little tough love.
    I hope you can strike the right balance soon and get back to school. I have seen it done very successfully, whatever the critics and haters say. I wish you success and the strength to see it through.

  • My four months brother doesnt stop crying..help?

    Best answer: Sometimes babies cry. Crying for 20 minutes isn't a reason to go to a hospital.

    Four months is too young for food, but I don't think that's why he's crying, nor did a kiss on the cheek harm him in any way.

  • 5 month old sleep....?

    I put my 5 month old down for bed at 8pm and she only sleeps 30- 45 mins then wants to be up till 10 or 11 then she will sleep a long stretch.. Her naps are 30-45 mins as well. After she wakes up at bedtime, if I rock her she will go back to sleep until I put her down then she wakes up and is wide awake.

  • What's an easy way to get my 5 month old to sleep in his pack n play? I try to put him in it to sleep but he won't stop crying.?

    Best answer: You may never do it. A couple of my kids never made it into a Pack n Play, they simply hated it.

  • Good places to receive baby items/clothes from? Any advice single parents?

    Best answer: Good Will.
    Thrift Stores.
    Dollar Stores.
    Walmart.
    Consignment Shops. (these stores sell gently used items and sometimes they trade items also. You can sometimes trade something you don't need for something that you do need.)
