The biggest fear of every new parent is the fear that their child will stop breathing at any moment. This can be a terrifying experience because if you’re not prepared, it can seem like there isn’t much to do when this happens. Thankfully, there are many things that parents should know in order to get through these scary moments with more ease and less panic on your part.
First of all, babies under six months have an increased risk for SIDS due to being exposed to various viruses or bacteria while they’re still developing antibodies against them (Claire). Therefore, make sure your baby sleeps on his/her back as often as possible so s/he doesn’t develop a flat head from sleeping facedown for hours each day. Make sure the crib mattress is only about several inches from the side of your baby’s head and is not touching it.
Secondly, don’t worry too much about pacifiers as long as you’re breastfeeding the child (Claire). However, if they are bottle-fed or worse yet exclusively formula fed, then be aware that prolonged use of a pacifier can make them stop breast feeding because some babies get so used to having something in their mouths at all times. Lastly, take time for yourself every day; whether this means getting up early enough each morning to do some yoga before work or finding 15 minutes during nap time to meditate–it will help you have more patience with your little one later on when s/he doesn’t want anything but attention from his/her parents…
