Baby Sleep Training - Mimic the Feeling of the Womb


By Naomi Knight  | Submitted On January 20


For the entire beginning of their lives, babies are accustomed to one environment: the womb. It can be very jarring to come into a new world with so much new stimuli, and it can cause a feeling of insecurity in baby. The best way to help baby sleep more soundly, make the transition, and feel safe is to mimic some of the feelings of the womb.

Characteristics of The Womb

So what does the womb have that your house doesn't? Let's think about the environment baby is familiar with:

  • Lots of white noise - he's used to a very loud environment, what with the outside noises mixing with the sounds of the body's machinery

  • Cramped quarters - he's used to existing in a very small space, where everything is close together

The Breastfed Baby That Won't Take a Bottle


By Katie Madden  | Submitted On November 04

Every now and then I get an email or a phone call from a mom whose breastfed baby won't take a bottle. Perhaps she is going back to work in a few short days or perhaps she just wants a few hours to herself to go somewhere or do anything that doesn't involve having her baby, whom she loves dearly, hanging off her boob. A baby who won't take a bottle is a scary thing. Suddenly you are looking down the barrel of months of feeling "trapped." You are plagued with the question:

What if my baby never takes a bottle?

Whenever I am presented with this question, I immediately spiral into PTSD. My baby never took a bottle. I can't remember the exact details because, well, I was a crazy, exhausted, emotional, overwhelmed new mother myself.

What I do remember is buying every bottle available on the market that claimed to be "just like the breast," including a bottle that was literally shaped like a breast. It leaked all over me. I can't remember when I started offering, but I do know that when I went back to work when Lucy was 12-16 weeks (I can't remember when, okay?!), she wasn't taking a bottle. I remember my husband calling me in a panic and driving her 30 minutes to the hospital in Philly where I worked so I could come down and nurse her.
