Teething pain doesn’t sleep, and neither will bub! We don’t blame them either, for anyone who has ever suffered a toothache, you know what we are talking about. The pressure of those little teeth pushing through is enough to wake your baby at all hours of the night. Sometimes all we can do is to be there with them, giving cuddles and comfort whether the pain hits day or night.
Night time teething not only affects bub routines and behaviours, but mum and dad also suffer trying to function on sleepless nights. By working to maintain sleep habits you can help them through and maybe catch a few zzz’s yourself.
Spending time creating bonds with your new baby is some of the most precious times mum, dad and other relatives get to spend together.
The time shared is so important not only for your relationship but to help the baby grow and enhance their mental development.
If you haven’t started reading to your little one yet, don’t fret, its never too late to start. Reading with babies and children is a constant learning journey with every word read to them beneficial to their cognitive development. As bub listens to your words, she will creating sound patterns in her mind, working on recollection and memory to understand the words and their meaning, even though she can’t say them just yet.
Board books are the perfect style of book for you to read with your little one, as the books are designed with little hands in mind. As bub grows you will find he can start holding the books himself whilst you read.
