Four tips for the first month of infant care in Apollo Beach

Posted on 05-08-2015 | Carrie Elwell


Having a child is not an easy endeavor, but it is a rewarding experience. While it can be a very stressful time, help and advice can alleviate even the most stressful situations. Many hospitals actually offer mandatory infant care courses for new parents.

Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Southshore discusses how you can make life easier at home with these four tips that will help you survive the first month and provide the special care you want for your infant.

Ask for help

When it comes to caring for your infant, there will be times when you need to ask for help. By asking for assistance, you are ensuring that you provide the level of infant care that is required for healthy growth. Studies have shown that parents who ask for help are far more successful than those who try to do everything alone.

Use available resources

Connect with hospitals, clinics, friends and relatives to ask for infant care tips and advice. There are many resources available that can provide valuable insights and recommendations. There are also numerous pamphlets, brochures, books and online resources that can help. You can find many of these by asking your pediatrician.

Plan ahead

Plan ahead for things such as feedings and laundry. Put a plan into place to manage daily and weekly tasks so that you are ready at the moment of need. For example, prepare for feedings by having milk ready ahead of time, so that when your infant is ready, so is the milk. Also, include in your plan, time for you to get the rest you need to properly care for your child.

Share the workload

Enlist your family members to help share the amount of time and effort in caring for your infant. This cuts the workload significantly and reduces stress. Also, it helps all family members enjoy quality time with the new baby.
