Bedtime

Since your baby is born it's convenient that you sleep him/her in cradle or cot, so your baby learns to fall sleep by himself. So that, if your baby wakes up in the middle of the night he/she will be able to fall asleep on hi/her own.

In order that the child sleeps and could anticipate the night terrors and nightmares, try that your baby has a peaceful moment before going to the cot . Also it is good that your child takes a relaxing bath.

In the cot you must place your baby on his/her side or on his/her back.

BOLIN BOLON offers you the necessary articles for your baby’s dream.

Bath time

Here’s how to do it and what you'll need to make baby-bathing easy.

With any luck, his bath will become one of the most enjoyable parts of your days together.

Assemble all necessary bath accessories.
Fill the tub with water that feels warm but not hot.
Bring your baby to the bath area and undress him completely.
Gradually slip your baby into the tub, using one hand to support his neck and head.
Pour cupfuls of bath water over him regularly during the bath so he doesn't get too cold.
Use soap sparingly (it dries your baby's skin) as you wash him with your hand or a wash-cloth from top to bottom, front to back.
Wash his scalp with a wet, soapy cloth.
Use a moistened cotton ball to clean his eyes and face.
If dried mucus has collected in the corner of your baby's nostrils or eyes, dab it several times with a small section of a moistened wash-cloth to soften it before you wipe it out.
Rinse your baby thoroughly with a clean wash-cloth.
Wrap your baby in a hooded towel and pat him dry.
If his skin is dry, or if he has a bit of diaper rash, you may want to apply a mild lotion after his bath.

BOLIN BOLON puts to your service many articles for the bath of your baby, such as: towels, tubs, hooded towels, ... etc.

Diapering procedure

Make sure you have everything you need nearby to change a diaper. Babies should never be left unattended, even for a second. Even a newborn might surprise you with his ability to roll.

Lay your baby on his back on the changing table. Slide the dirty diaper away from the baby, using the wet wash-cloth, cotton balls, or baby wipes, gently wipe your baby clean from the front to the back. You may want to lift the baby's legs by the ankles to get a better reach. Once you've finished wiping, pat your baby dry with a clean wash-cloth and apply diaper ointment. Open the diaper and slide it under your baby while gently lifting his or her legs and feet. Bring the front part of the diaper up between your baby’s legs, bring the adhesive strips around and fasten snugly. Be careful no to stick the tape onto your baby’s skin.

BOLIN BOLON puts at your service articles to facilitate the change of diaper: changer-mats, changing tables…

The environment

Babies spend much of their time sleeping and need a safe environment when they do.

Beyond basic crib safety, parents need to consider sleep attire, bedding and room temperature. Overheating is thought to be a major contributor to SIDS, so do not try to make a baby’s room too warm.

The basic guideline is that a baby can sleep safely in a room that is comfortable for a lightly clothed adult.

Never place heating pads, electric blankets or hot water bottles in a crib. Do not position space heaters near a crib.

On the other hand, assure a pure air environment, without smokes of tobacco or other pollutions.

BOLIN BOLON offers different rooms for your baby.

Travelling by car

A car seat is one piece of equipment you really need before your baby is born. Always use a federally approved car seat.

Choosing the right car seat for your baby's age and weight is very important. You must also make sure that it is properly installed.

If a car seat doesn’t seem to fit your car perfectly, or if it seems difficult to fasten in place, do not buy it. The seat should be held tightly by the seatbelt with very little sideways movement.

We will avoid always to put a safety seat in front of a frontal airbag.

And certainly, do not hesitate to change the seat in case of a clear deterioration that could reduce safety.

The Baby’s nails

This is part of the care that few babies enjoy. When is a newborn is simpler, nails are very soft and break alone, in fact it is not necessary to cut them unless they are very long. Otherwise it is best to wait to fulfill a month.

To cut the nails has to take his hand gently but firmly and cut with a rounded tip scissors. The fingernails must be cut to shape curve but toenails straight across, to prevent the nail grows inside the skin and can cause ingrown nails or other complication. If the work is complicated you better not force rebels childs, could harm them, you must wait until they are sleeping to do it properly.

Solid foods

In nearly all healthy children, 4 to 6 months is the recommended age for starting solids. However a child's motor skills and stage of development also help determine when they are ready for solid foods.

Before you offer solid foods, your baby should be capable of holding his/her head up. In addition, your infant should no longer have the "extrusion reflex", which causes babies to push anything but liquid out of their mouths.

BOLIN BOLON puts at your disposal very practical articles, which helps you when feeding your baby.
