You may feel that moms make breastfeeding look so easy but don’t worry, that’s not the case. It’s a natural process but some new moms require a little help to kickstart smooth breastfeeding!

A practice that has been followed over generation is Swaddling. This involves wrapping your baby in a blanket to keep them secure. The infant’s arms and legs are ticked in tightly and the blanket envelopes them neck down. When you swaddle your baby, you are essentially giving the position of the womb to your infant.
Swaddling prevents the baby from getting startled from sounds or even no reason at all. This reflex last for about 3-6 months but can tend to prevent the baby from sleeping. Swaddling enables the baby to sleep soundly and sleep longer, giving you some extra time as well.
Baby-wearing has recently become super-popular right now, but you might be surprised to learn it has a long history. Mums have been wearing various versions of the baby carrier since many centuries to keep babies close to them. Some of the early carriers were made from just a long piece of cloth wrapped tightly around the woman’s body to keep the baby close to them while they worked the fields or went about their day.
Whether you like to think of your stretch marks as your tiger stripes or whether you would ideally have a minimal amount on your tummy, most mums and mums-to-be have some stretch marks during pregnancy. They can appear anywhere on your body, from your belly to your thighs, your breasts or your buttocks and can be multiple colors – angry red, purple or just a dull light color.
According to most doctors, a big role on whether you get stretch marks or not depends on your genetics vs other factors but having said that, it really helps to keep your skin moisturized during pregnancy.
