    I'm moving to a big city soon and want to find a job babysitting a newborn. I want to watch that specific age because I want a baby, but wont be having one anytime soon. I know most parents want sitters to be CPR/first aid certified, but more importantly, have experience with infants. the only experience I have is volunteering in nurseries in high school. I'm really hoping to build my skills and see if that will make up for lack of experience with that age. Are there any other certifications I can get that will help me get my foot in the door? And would it be weird to offer to babysit for free to see how I am with their child? I'm very patient with babies and absolutely love them. I'm 22 if it helps.

  • With a almost 6month old baby is it wrong to NOT change a pee diaper in middle of the night?

    Best answer: As long as they aren't getting a rash from it, don't bother changing it. You and they both need sleep, they need to learn to sleep through the night, and you should get your money's worth out of every diaper.

    Sleep > diapers

  • Infants Tylenol/children's tylenol?

    My 4 month old got shots today and the doctor said it was okay to give him some Tylenol if he started to develop a fever. She gave me a paper with dosage instructions on it saying for his weight he should get only 2.5ML. My husband being a worry wart gave him 1.25ml instead.

She gave me a paper with dosage instructions on it saying for his weight he should get only 2.5ML. My husband being a worry wart gave him 1.25ml instead. But didn't pay attention (in sleep deprived haze) grabbed the children's Tylenol instead of infants. I looked up and it says it's pretty much the same for both. But why would they make two different kinds if they were both the same? Unless I'm wrong?? Is there truly a difference?

  • Can I breastfeed and use formula?

    Best answer: Absolutely. However, if you want to breastfeed longer than a few months, you really should try to pump milk whenever you get a chance. The more often you empty your breasts, the more milk you'll produce and therefore the longer you'll be able to offer breast milk to your baby. By law, your employer is... show more
    Best answer: Absolutely. However, if you want to breastfeed longer than a few months, you really should try to pump milk whenever you get a chance. The more often you empty your breasts, the more milk you'll produce and therefore the longer you'll be able to offer breast milk to your baby.

    By law, your employer is REQUIRED to allow you time to pump milk for your breastfeeding child if you wish to do so. And you can get a breast pump used or even new from your insurance company.

    If you only nurse while home, you will likely lose your milk supply quickly and you'll end up needing to use formula full time. Nothing wrong with that. But it is generally recommended that you pump when you are not with Baby so you can keep your supply up and not suffer from things like mastitis or supply drops.

    I was making myself A cup of tea with honey and while I was scooping the honey out of the bottom of the container that it was in, naturally the sticky honey dripped a little on my hand/nails I immediately freaked out and obsessively washed my hands...at least 6 times With soap and water Because I knew it was almost time to make a bottle for my baby and I had remembered reading that honey can be extremely dangerous to babies under a year old.. so after washing and washing and washing my hands I made the bottle luckily I had premade formula so I did not have to touch the scoop for the powder or anything I just am wondering if I am worried for nothing? After you get honey on your hands and you wash your hands a lot.. is there still a risk of any honey or spores getting on to the bottle? I just know they say there’s like a bacteria that can cause issues and I just want to make sure that washing my hands definitely prevent any issues

    My niece Adriana was born on January 19th, 2018 at 5 lbs 4 ounces. At approximately 4 months old, she weighs somewhere between 12 and 13 lbs and is 26 inches in length. Other than being tongue tied, she seems fine but I am a bit worried about her being on track. She seems good, she babbles, tries to crawl, is lifting her head up, can sit up on her own for several seconds, and eats over 12 ounches of her milk a day, but she seems so small for her age. Is her size a concern?

  • Help? Will drinking bad breastmilk hurt my baby?

    The other day, I found a bottle of expressed milk in the back of my fridge which was disgustingly bad. So I took it out & gave it rinse, & put this bottle on the side to later wash & steralise. This morning I went out, & left my husband in charge. My 3 month old was getting moody so, he fed her as I was walking in the door. He said that she had about 30mls (1oz?) but wouldn't drink anymore. I asked if I could try, as Iv never bottle fed her or even seen her take a bottle (I've always directly breastfeed)... so I put the bottle in her mouth. She kept spitting it out but I thought it was just my technique so I tried a few more times, placing the whole teat in her mouth & tilting her back. It was too much of a struggle so I just whipped out the breast and fed her. She was definitely hungry & drank. It wasn't till then that I tried and smelled the milk & it smelled & tasted really bad. I discovered that he used the bottle that had only been rinsed which had previously had the spoiled milk in it. (Even though there was an entire cupboard of clean bottles)!! I have no idea how old that milk was!! There was obviously remains of the old milk that were mixed with the fresh because it tasted and smelled bad. What could happen to my poor baby!? I'm stressing!! she seems ok but what signs should I look for! She pooped a few times more than usual but other than this, nothing unusual. If there was potentionally something bad in the milk, how soon would I know?
