Starting a routine with your new baby

Feed your baby 3 hourly during the day and allow him/her to go longer at night but not longer than 4 hours in the first 6 weeks.

Babies need to be cuddled , have eye contact and be spoken to when they are awake.  At night keep your voice low and dim the lights.

Internal factors such as hunger and fatigue seem to drive their rhythm.  A baby will sleep longer when he is growing in length but he will be hungry when he is needing to gain weight.

In the first year it is difficult to get him into a solid routine.

Remember if your baby is happy and contented he is getting enough sleep and drinking enough milk.

What I Do

I am living my dream while working with mums and babies. I see mums when they are 34 weeks pregnant and then go to their homes once they go into labour. I stay for the full duration of the labour and after the birth I assist them with breast feeding. I do another visit after the birth to see that all is well and to help where I can.  Mums are always welcome to call me in the event that they have any questions, whether before or after the birth. I am passionate about my work as a doula and I care and love all the families with which I work. Once you have been present at a birth you feel part of the family and it’s wonderful to hear news of the new baby’s life as he or she grows.
