ten top tips for parents of category 2 babies

Use Sister Lilian’s hints below to help you and your Category 2 Baby:

  1. Feed your baby on demand as his hunger is genuine.
  2. Include a massage session as part of your baby’s pre-sleep routine to help relax him.
  3. While breastfeeding, you should avoid or reduce eating meat, pickles, and fermented food like cheese and yoghurt to settle your baby’s acidity problems.
  4. Wind your baby after each feed, but not for longer than five minutes if there is no burping.
  5. If your baby has hiccups, give him the tissue salt Magnesium Phosphate at least three times each day.
  6. Make sure that your baby does not become too hot by over-dressing as this will make him irritable.
  7. Regularly expose your baby to fresh air, either placing him under a tree in the garden or going for frequent walks.
  8. Play soothing music often as this will help relax your baby.
  9. Add a pot of rooibos tea to your baby’s bathwater if he tends to skin rashes.
  10. If your baby gulps while breastfeeding him, lie back against a few big pillows and place him tummy-to-tummy while drinking and he will swallow a lot less wind.
