Parent-to-parent advice on feeding, soothing, and more during Baby’s first days at home.

Tips for new parents

As a new parent, you’re bound to have questions on everything from getting started with breastfeeding to washing and bathing your baby and changing their nappy.

Breastfeeding your new baby

In the beginning it can seem like you’re baby is constantly feeding, but gradually you and your baby will get into a pattern and the amount of milk you produce will settle.

Feed your baby as often as they want. This is called baby-led feeding. Let your baby decide when they have had enough.

Washing and bathing your new baby

You do not need to bathe your baby in the first few days. You may prefer to wash their face, neck, hands and bottom carefully instead. This is sometimes called topping and tailing.

Choose a time when your baby is awake and content. Make sure the room is warm and get everything ready beforehand.

You’ll need a bowl of warm water, a towel, cotton wool, a fresh nappy and, if necessary, clean clothes.

Soothing a crying baby

Crying is your baby’s way of telling you they need comfort and care. But it’s not always easy to work out what they want.

Helping your baby sleep

It’s normal for new babies to only sleep for 2 to 3 hours at a time through the night, as well as during the day.

One reason is that newborn babies are not tuned into day and night yet.

Babies also grow quickly in the early months and they have very small stomachs. This means they need to feed little and often.

As your baby grows, they’ll gradually start to need fewer night feeds and will sleep for longer at night.

How to tell if your baby is seriously ill.

It can be difficult to tell when a baby is seriously ill. Above all, it’s important to trust your instincts.

You know your baby better than anyone else, so you’ll know if their appearance or behaviour is worrying ask for professional advice.
