ten top tips for parents of category 3 babies

Use Sister Lilian’s hints below to help you and your Category 3 Baby:

  1. If you are breastfeeding your baby, reduce mucous producing foods in your diet, like dairy and processed grain products.
  2. If you are giving substitute milk, make sure it is indicated for reducing the risk of allergies.
  3. Because your baby may tend to pick up too much weight, be careful not to feed baby in the place of giving emotional care.
  4. Avoid processed baby cereals as a first food as these tend to increase mucus congestion.
  5. Don’t add cereal to your baby’s bottle to avoid excess weight gain and excess mucus.
  6. Your baby has a slower metabolism and can go longer between feeds, so relax and practice baby-led feeding.
  7. Do fun exercises with your baby each day, as she will thrive on physical activity, and it will help her attain her physical milestones and develop her innate athletic ability.
  8. Take baby on regular outings to provide mental stimulation, which will keep them happy and interested.
  9. Don’t be anxious if your baby seems to sleep much more than others, or think you must wake her for a feed – this is her ‘type’ and she probably has a very relaxed mother too!
  10. Treat excess mucus promptly with homeopathic remedies to help prevent more serious chest infections.
