Organizing for a New Baby
Gina shares tips she says can help parents get through the first few weeks with one—or many—newborns!
- Don't splurge on big-ticket baby items right away—buy them as you need them.
- Put the baby on a schedule. Keep a chart of when you feed them, change them and put them down for a nap.
- Don't pick the baby up every time he or she makes a noise. Gina says that this practice helps babies learn how to self-soothe.
- Only give the baby a nighttime feeding if they wake up, otherwise Gina says the baby will not learn to sleep through the night.
