Ideal time for a regular bedtime routine is between 6:30 pm and 8:30 pm. You don't want your baby to become too tired.

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.

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.

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.

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.
