    What to Do If the 5 S's Aren't Calming Cries

    What to Do If the 5 S's Aren't Calming Cries

    Many babies need 2 or more of the 5S’s to settle a big upset. Moms from the !Kung culture in Africa use a mix of tight holding, rocking, nursing and repeating, “Uhn-uhn, uhn, uhn,” over and over. In Tanzania, moms soothe crying by cuddling their babies while pretending to grind corn (vigorously bending and straightening and humming a rough noise).

These include rooting (moving head from side with an open mouth, looking for a...

    The Truth About Putting Your Baby on a Schedule

    Should baby schedules be shunned or embraced? Toddlers love routines, but what about babies? Like so many child-rearing issues, there’s more than one right answer. Scheduling is a modern concept. The ancients didn’t feed babies according to the time on the sundial or make baby nap schedules. But staying organized can be a lifesaver for today’s moms and can help a baby adopt a schedule that works better for the family.

    Chamomile Tea & Other Herbal Teas for Babies

    Chamomile Tea & Other Herbal Teas for Babies

    Through the ages, teas to aid digestion have been recommended for unhappy babies. Traditionally, mothers brewed chamomile tea for babies—as well as peppermint, fennel, or dill teas—to help upset tiny tummies. The ancient roots of this practice are reflected in the names different cultures have chosen for these herbs. In Spanish, peppermint is called yerba buena, meaning the “good grass”; in Serbian it’s nana, meaning “grandmother.” Dill was used to settle stomachs in ancient Egypt and Greece, and in Viking...

    How Do I Know If I Have a Low Milk Supply?

    It’s easy to tell if a bottle-fed baby is getting her fair share: Just count the ounces she eats. With breastfeeders however, it’s trickier, and you'll want to determine if you have a low milk supply. Do you have enough breastmilk? Your breasts should feel heavy when you wake up. They may occasionally leak and you should be able to hear your baby gulping at least at the beginning of the feedings. Is your baby serene after a meal? Well-fed...
