Symptoms your baby may experience include a bloated tummy, straining to pass wind, difficulty burping and excessive flatulence. These symptoms can be very unsettling for newborns and can result in a lot of crying. Not to worry, here is some guidance on what you can do to prevent and ease trapped wind for your newborn.
Newborns learn to move, communicate, socialize and understand the world around them through play. How you interact with your baby is key to their development at this early stage.
Practicing daily self care is vital to the mental and physical health of any new mother. While you are busy tending to the needs of your newborn, be sure to take a moment to reflect upon your own physical, mental and social needs. Assess if these needs are being met and what steps are being made to practice self care every day.
