6-8 weeks

A 6 week old baby is such a special time. They are slowly starting to show their personality and develop somewhat of a character. It seems that every day, they do something new, which makes it hard to keep up with them! But there are so many cute things about this age period too – the way they hold their head when they fall asleep on your shoulder or how you can just tell that at any minute they might make an expression that would crack anyone up!

A few important things to watch out for if you have a baby this age:

A 6 week old baby tends to sleep about 12-14 hours a day and may have trouble staying awake when they are awake. And, just like adults, babies can get overtired which might lead to cranky moods or being fussy.

If your baby is in pain (screaming) from crying too much it could be because of discomfort from gas pains. They may also need feeding more often than usual – so try offering them the breast every two hours until their fussiness subsides! Babies typically spit up anywhere between five and twenty times per day. This doesn’t mean that something’s wrong with their digestive system, but rather how quickly their little stomach empties into theirs esophagus after feeds. Not all of this fluid will come back.

As a health visitor, this period in your baby’s life gives me the pleasure of discussing some of the milestones changes in your baby’s growth and development.  It is an interesting time, and is usually one in which your baby begins to interact with you. 

During this visit, we will cover some age appropriate activities, typical childhood illnesses and practical ways to keep your baby safe within the home.  There will be the opportunity to measure your baby’s weight and to discuss feeding.

3-4 months

Babies are the most wonderful creatures in the world. They have adorable little faces and they’re so small! But, even though babies grow amazingly fast, the 3-4 month period in their development is crucial and it is a necessity that new parents are correctly advised around this time. 

In general, your child will start to become more active at this stage. For example, the more frequent use of their hands to explore everything around them–so expect lots of dropped dummies. It’s also common for children this age who are breastfed or bottle fed not wanting solids yet but rather just milk feeds.

My Private Health Visiting services are particularly useful for first time parents. I present the opportunity to assess your baby’s growth and development; whilst providing good check points to see how well you have transitioned into parenthood. Furthermore, I discuss specific topics such as  preparing to introduce your baby to solid foods at the recommended age of 6 months.
