Last week we talked about Gross Motor Skills. This week we chat about ‘Fine Motor Skills’

"Fine motor" alludes to the developments babies make with the little muscles of the hands.

Kids begin to utilise their hands comfortable to investigate their own particular bodies and their general surroundings. Their fine motor skills grow as their entire body begins to move and get to be more steady. They additionally figure out how to accomplish more things with their hands as their cognitive and social/passionate skills move forward.

Weaning your toddler off breastmilk can be one on the most patience dependant tasks you do as a mother. Every situation is different, but how do you do it? We’ve researched and chatted to some experienced Mum’s.

Time and determination are the most basic elements needed

Communication is a key factor.

Slow and steady wins the race.

Create a replacement

You might have a cranky toddler for a few days.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your baby were born with the same sleeping pattern as you? However that is usually not the case, some babies are more active at night and prefer to sleep during the day.

Most newborns sleep an average of 16 - 17 hours a day, usually for around 2 - 4 hours at a time.

Their little stomachs cannot hold a lot of breast milk or formula, so they will often wake up when hungry and need a fresh nappy change.

This month we’re continuing on the topic of exercise and healthy eating. We’ve talked about high-intensity exercises like Crossfit and cost effective outdoor activities to keep you moving. But what do you do when you still look in the mirror and see that post pregnancy ‘mummy tummy’?

You could be very surprised as to what your belly looks like after giving birth. Even though you’ve given birth and your baby is out of your belly, you may still have a round abdominal area. You might not want to hear it, but a few weeks (or months)after you have given birth you will probably look about 4 months pregnant.

Medical research shows that the wrong sleeping position during pregnancy will increase your chances of having a still birth. We believe that by choosing the right pregnancy pillow you will be able to avoid those dangerous positions.

Pregnancy pillows can help you overcome one of the greatest challenges you will face as your pregnancy progresses - finding comfort during sleep or rest.

 Early in your pregnancy you will experience pressure on your bladder and perhapsnausea. Later in your pregnancy you may also experience indigestionheartburn and sometimes leg cramps.

The joy, expectation and anticipation that a pregnant woman is supposed to feel can often be clouded by lack of sleep. Although hormonal changes can contribute to minor insomnia often the only thing standing between an expectant mom and a good night’s rest is adequate support for her and her growing baby!

Doctor’s agree that pregnant women who are offered sufficient support will experience some relief from pressure on their abdominal nerves and uterus. There should also be an improvement in heartburn and blood circulation in the legs.
