Congratulations! Welcome to the club

During the pregnancy: The hormones will cause her to to become... emotionally unstable. She'll blame you for everything. Just let her and don't take it too seriously. That was hard for me to do. But she won't listen anyway and the fight isn't worth it.

After birth: Love and hug your girl and your miniature you as much as you can.

Jesus loves you [yes, you] so much, he even died for you so that you will not need to die, but live forever

Thanks for the well wishes all.

The child will be definitely introduced to music... and from that article, I just might try that reading thing

And, agreed wotl. The absurdity of the hormones, but not worth the fight for sure. The miniature is a girl by the way

Congratulations, a great path to take with surprises around every corner.

If your partner takes to eating coal or pickled cabbage, just leave her to it, she knows what she's doing.
This is not something you should tolerate in your offspring, however.

"Speak severely to your child
And beat him when he sneezes,
For he can thoroughly enjoy
The pepper, if he pleases"

Advice ... make sure they get talked to as much as possible. Don't dump them in front of the telly on their own, TV can't answer their questions.

We got a new baby in my clan this week. Her name is Lain. She was 9 lbs and change. My grand niece. I get to hold a baby without any work or lack of sleep. That's what I'm talkin' bout. Sometimes getting old ain't so bad.

Congrats on the little one. Put a stem on the next one

Thanks all!

Personally, this has gotten me quite nervous.

Without getting into things too much ... I never really been around children. And in terms of a role model ... My father ... Not a good example.

I just keep on thinking don't do what my dad did ill be fine ... Quite honestly though, I really don't want to get into that....

*cry*

So a week and a half old and mom was required to take her first trip away without baby.

You know, I think this whole stereotype of "mom can't leave home because dad can't care for my child" really just screws dad about twelve ways from Sunday.

Mom carries baby. Mom feeds baby. Up until the point that stops, baby just does not give two hoots about dad. Sure, he's someone to snuggle with, change a diaper, make baby do akward but funny things, a shoulder to cry on … but let's face it: dad's not keeping baby alive.

So instantly a bond is formed between baby and mom. If mom walks out of the picture, baby gives birth the a holy fucking cow that is never ending.

Dropped mom off at the airport. Within 5 minutes baby starts crying and just won't stop. Dad can calm baby when mom is around. Luckily, dad is smart, gets home and grabs a worn shirt of mom's. That works until baby realizes it's not really mom.

Baby keeps dad up for the next 28 of 36 hours without mom. Sleep came when baby passed out from crying all night.

Baby fed? Check.

Clean diaper? Check.

Loved: Check.

Why baby you no stop crying!?!?!?!?!

Congratulations!


Even the experienced mothers finds very difficult to give the smoothening care to the newborns. Globally it is understood and believed that music gives wonderful effects in managing the child's routines. Naturally, when the child finds unable to sleep, rather we can put in as, do not know, how to sleep on certain occasions. On account of this, the child will start crying, it is the way of communication for the child, and nothing in the globe will be feasible to enable the child, and help to stop crying, and make him to sleep. But to everybody's surprise, the music presented in this album ensures easy sleep for the child.

The regular exposure to this music ensures effectives cycle of sleep and agile in the child's behavior. The natural combinations of notes gives the needed comfort to the child through the auditory system. It has been proved clinically that, minimum 18 + hours of sleep in a new bron helps to attain better cognitive levels at later stage of development. The music selected in this album helps the child to sleep well adequately.

Music? Check.

A couple things that might help: Put a fish tank with bubbles in the room or or put a wind up alarm clock in bed with them. Repetitive sounds and sounds like running water, air conditioners. It's by no means gonna let you get great sleep for a while, but I took it where I could get it.

The first time you hear your baby cry is a thrilling experience; it's a sign she's entered the world healthy with a great set of lungs! But as the weeks go by, the thrill may quickly give way to concern and frustration.

As you will inevitably learn, babies cry a lot. Sometimes, the reason is obvious: Baby is hungry, wet, or tired, and wants you to address her needs. Other times, getting the tears to stop is not such a simple process. That's why figuring out how to soothe and calm a baby when nothing else seems to do the trick is so important.

While no single method works for all babies, you'll soon develop a repertoire of techniques that's perfect for your child. In the meantime, read on for some time-tested ideas to help your little fusser feel better.

Loco for Motion
For baby, spending nine months inside Mom's belly is literally like living in a mobile home. Even when you sleep, your body is moving, so when baby enters the world, lying quietly in a bassinet may seem oddly still and unfamiliar. Shaking things up a bit may make her more comfortable.

1. Rock-a-bye baby: Place baby in your arms, stand with your feet slightly more than hip-width apart, and swivel back and forth at the hips. Your movement can be fairly vigorous as long as you're holding baby close. When you get tired, use the rocking chair.

2. Swing, swing, swing: Baby swings offer soothing, rhythmic motion that helps calm baby down. Just make sure the swing is designed for a small baby, as little ones may slump over in a large one.

3. Get some good vibrations going: The vibrating motion of a washing machine or dryer has saved the sanity of many a frustrated parent. Place baby in an infant seat, put it on top of the appliance, and hold on to it firmly so the seat stays in place.

4. Tool around the block: The smooth, consistent motion of a car or stroller ride, in addition to the snug comfort of a car seat or stroller, lulls many fussy babies to sleep.

Papa Bear Hug

5. Dad is king: Or so say many moms, when it comes to soothing. Maybe it's because his strong arms can rock her more quickly. Maybe it's because he swaddles her more tightly. Or maybe he's just bigger and warmer. But who cares what the reason is? Get him to help and give yourself a break.

Wrap It Up
A womb is not a roomy piece of real estate. Your baby is used to being packed closely in a warm, cozy environment. Emulating it stops tears and makes her feel secure.

6. Swaddle away: Wrapping baby cozily in a thin, lightweight blanket with her arms across her chest has a wonderful calming effect. Swaddled babies often sleep longer and more soundly, too.

7. Snuggle up: Try kangaroo care. This technique is especially good for preemies. Undress baby, lie down, place her against your naked skin, and cover both of you with a warm, soft blanket.

8. Strap on a sling: It's not surprising that the warm, dark, close comfort of a baby sling is a surefire soother. An added bonus: You can breastfeed anywhere undercover.

Bring On the Noise
A pregnant belly is not the serene sanctuary you might imagine. The inside scoop: Your baby can hear the pounding of your heart, the rush of your blood, and the gurgling of your stomach. For some newborns, silence isn't golden.

9. Turn on a fan: The soft whirring is music to a fussy baby's ears.

10. Vacuum up: Some kids are calmed by the jarring combination of noise and vibration.

11. Hush with a "Shush!": Your "shushing" sound mimics what baby heard in the womb. Say it directly into her ear, over and over again.

12. Try white noise: Any machine with a consistent rushing sound has a soothing effect; recordings of waves on the beach, rainfall, or the sound of a waterfall will work as well.

Getting Rid of Gas
13-15. Letting it go: Some people think infants smile when they have gas; others know better. If you suspect your baby is crying from gas pain:

lay him down across your knees and gently rub his back
bicycle his legs while he lies on his back
talk to your doctor about using infant gas drops

Could It Be Colic?
One-fifth of babies develop colic, which means they cry inconsolably for three hours or more a day for three weeks or more; it peaks at six weeks and usually resolves itself by three months.

16. Watch your diet: If you're nursing and regular soothing tips don't help, try eliminating:

dairy
caffeine
onions
other potentially irritating foods from your diet


17. Try the colic hold: Lay baby facedown on your forearm, cradle her close to your body, and rock her back and forth.

Pacifier Cures?
Many moms wonder, "What's the deal with pacifiers? Should I use one, or will my baby develop a bad habit?"

18. Offer a binky: According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), there's nothing wrong with giving a newborn a pacifier. Some children have strong sucking needs and are quickly soothed by a binky. Most babies give up the paci on their own around the seventh month. If yours doesn't, don't worry. The AAP says it's unlikely to harm his development.

Nothing Is Working! Now What?
All is not lost! There are still a number of tricks you can try to jolly your little one out of his cranky mood.

19. Go outside: A change of scenery can be distracting enough to calm your newborn's cries.

20. Give baby a massage: Some babies find stroking soothing.

21. Dim the lights and shut off the TV: Too much stimulation can jangle a newborn's nerves.

22. Check the temperature in your house: Baby could be too hot or too cold.

23. Check baby's clothes: Hot, tight, or confining clothes can cause tears to flow.

Offer a binky
Don't if you can help it. I would use one of these to help teething pain and for no other reason. If you let that be a comfort thing, you'll play hell getting them to quit the binky. We're all gonna get enough compulsive behavior without adding any. Even for teething, I'd tried to find something like Zweiback teething biscuits (which apparently they quit making in the last 30 years), Maybe some kind of a firm rice cake?

I guess I found Caruso soothing:



I thought the daddy Obama was a cute clip above.

Another thing you dads are gonna figure out. You'll worry even more because they're not crying.
