a lot, but their bodies need to absorb foods each 2-3 hours for at least 2
first week. Sleeping 8 hours successively can be the sign of severe jaundice.
Moreover, sleeping too long can make children face with dehydration. Parents
should make sure that their children receive the essential amount of water have
feed them each 4 hours at least at night.

children to sleep the whole night? The amount of sleep and sleeping time of
infants are various. Therefore, if you found that your children keep gaining
weight after the first 2 weeks and still have the ability to sleep in 8
succeeding hours, you can enjoy your full sleep at night without concerning
about the responsibility of waking them up.

cry will help them know that their parents a stand by them, which helps
strengthen the relationships and connections between parents and children.
Neglecting in keeping children’s oral hygiene

mean you can ignore their oral hygiene. It’s never too soon to start taking
care of children’s oral hygiene. To children who have formula milk, you should
clean their tongue with salted water every day. The white coating on tongue can
hurt infants, make them lose appetite and have bad breath.

Music can make children feel comfortable
and make them stop crying but, there’s no research can prove that music can
increase children’s intelligence.

listen to music in 15 minutes and 3 times a day in maximum. Listening to music
continuously will make children lose the ability to focus on the voice of their
mother, which makes them slow to speak and lazy on talking.
