It’s the time of year again where many kids are going back to school. For some that means a boarding school, away from their home. For some it means at home schooling. And, for a lot of the kids I know, it means back to public school, and the school bus transportation you take to get there. For kids who are going to school, or at least riding the bus, for the first time, this can be very scary. For their parents it’s usually even scarier. There are of course all the fears and apprehensions of your baby starting school, going out into the big, bad world without you. Yikes, right?

Once you give birth to a baby, you'll have the feeling that you're doing laundry all day long. Babies are quite messy, so you'll have to wash their clothes frequently. But, be careful, since babies are also sensitive and you don't want to irritate their skin. Frequent washing can also damage your baby's clothes, and you definitely don't want for that to happen. It's important that you learn how to treat stains and how to wash and dry your baby's clothes properly.

Childhood is the time when we as people are most open to new ideas, hobbies, manners etc. This is when we absorb the most from the world around us. It’s also for many children a time when our world is the smallest. Most young kids don’t travel far outside their immediate area, and do not get to witness different environments and cultures. One thing we can do to help broaden their horizons is read to them and with them as they get older. Not only will reading introduce your children to worlds, people, places, creatures and things they could never have imagined...

Breastfeeding twins or multiples may seem like an impossible job, but it isn't. And once you get some practice, you’ll enjoy it. When you start, you'll probably have the feeling that you're breastfeeding all day long and that you'll never have some free time just for yourself. Newborns (especially preemies) can nurse very often, even half an hour or so, which can be quite exhausting. It's usual for mothers to worry about so many things, especially if they've become parents for the first time.

Changing your baby's diaper is an easy job, but if you're a first-time parent, it may seem a little bit challenging. But once you overcome your fear and get some practice, you’ll do it in no time. Most of the babies like undressing (dressing is the problem here). And diaper changes are an ideal time for making a connection with your baby. You can also include your older children - they can help you with adding you the things you need. Newborns can usually soil up to ten diapers a day.

As with any other baby equipment, you have to follow your baby's (and your own) preferences and needs. Some babies will happily accept any type of bottle and nipple that goes with it, while others will have their favorite and won't be happy with any other except the one they prefer. You’ll probably have to try a few different types to find the right one. Sometimes you'll notice that a particular bottle is more suitable for your baby - many bottles are designed to prevent some feeding problems (such as colic, gas or spit-up) by venting air more efficiently.

Even though breastfeeding is one of the most natural things in the world, it takes time and practice to learn how to hold and support your baby. But once you find a comfortable position - you'll enjoy it. For successful breastfeeding, it's very important that you find the most comfortable position for both you and your baby. After all, you'll spend hours and hours in that position. The four main positions are the cradle hold, the crossover hold, the clutch (football hold) and the reclining position. First, you need to sit in a chair or on a bed. Choose a chair that has supportive armrests.

Before you got pregnant and started looking for baby equipment, you thought that choosing adequate things is easy and that you'd enjoy it. However, now even the choice of the simplest things, such as the bathtub, seems like a nightmare. But try to look at a large selection as an advantage, rather than a problem. You have the ability to choose everything you buy according to your needs - all you need is to know what are you looking for and what to pay attention to. Standard Tub - This is just a simple plastic tub. It's cheap, usually without many additional features.

If you think you finally know everything about the babies, that you've heard and read it all, and that nothing could surprise you - read carefully. Those little beings are full of surprises, but don't worry - most of the weird things that newborns do are totally normal. They sneeze often - Although most parents will first think about it, this doesn't mean that the baby is sick. Most often, she just hasn't yet got used to the world outside the womb - babies might be extra-sensitive to lots of things we're already immune to.
