ten top tips for parents of category 1 babies

Use Sister Lilian’s hints below to help you and your Category 1 Baby:

  1. Have a baby-wise routine to ensure a sense of security – this means that there should be a rhythm to the day, rather than a rigid routine.
  2. Make sure that you have quieter activities at the end of the day to help your baby to feel settled at night.
  3. Know that your baby needs to feed and sleep more frequently, but for shorter periods than other babies – this is quite simply who they are.
  4. Rhythmic movement will always help your baby feel more settled and comforted – don’t think that rocking is spoiling your baby.
  5. Your baby will benefit enormously from daily massage, but you might need shorter more frequent sessions.
  6. Breast milk is far easier on your baby’s digestive system and there will be far less colic and cramps if you nurse your baby.
  7. Your baby is most in need of one-on-one daycare when that time comes.
  8. Carry your baby in a carrier pouch or sling quite often and you will mostly have a content baby – follow safety precautions, of course!
  9. Co-sleep with your baby from the beginning to ensure you and Baby sleep better.
  10. You will find the homeopathic remedy Chamomilla D6 very useful for cramps, colic, crying, ear infections and difficult behaviour.
