If you’ve got a newborn baby, or you’re waiting on the arrival of your little one, then doing as much research as possible is going to help you to prepare. To give you peace of mind, here are some of the things you should never, ever do to your newborn.
Make Them Sleep Alone
Your baby should naturally sleep by you at night time. Either in your bed (safely of course) or by your bed in a crib. This makes them healthier and they have less chance of dying from infant death syndrome.
Surround Them With Teddies and Blankets
Surrounding your baby with teddies and blankets might seem like a cute idea, but it can actually obstruct their breathing. Swaddling them and putting as little in their crib as possible is a better idea.
Leave Them Unattended Around Pets
No matter how long you’ve had your pets or how much you trust them, you just don’t know how they’re going to react to having a new baby in the house. Accidents commonly happen, and it can leave you without a baby and without pets.
Leave Them Unattended In The Bath
Although you might think a split second won’t make a difference, whether you need to grab something or not, you should never leave your baby unattended in the bath. Leaving them alone even for a couple of seconds can cause them to fall forward and drown.
Put Them In An Unsafe Car Seat
Some car seats aren’t as safe as others. Ensuring your baby is safe in the car is an absolute must.
