Why do babies cry?

Should I let my baby “cry it out?”

Safe Sleep

This is never an easy topic. SIDS, or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, is when an infant one year or younger dies an unexplained death during sleep. There is nobody to blame for this type of death, but there are safe sleep guidelines that do reduce the risk of SIDS. Newborns can sleep up to 16 hours a day, so they spend much of their time sleeping. They sleep in three to four hour increments and need to eat often, but added all together, they sleep most of the day. It is important to keep the sleeping area for your baby as safe as possible.

Health vs. Wellness

Aren’t health and wellness the same thing? Actually, no. Health and wellness are not the same, but they do complement one another. It is similar to how your body and mind are linked. How you treat your body affects your mental health and how you think affects what happens to your body. Health, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

Loving Yourself

Loving yourself is vital; whether you are in a relationship, wishing you were, or satisfied with simply you. Are there risks with loving others? Absolutely.  If you first, love yourself, your current and future relationships will be able to thrive that much more. It sounds easy enough, but unfortunately, many of us tend to fall short of loving ourselves. We are inclined to be more critical of ourselves than anyone else is. Sometimes we give everything to others, help others and put ourselves last. We are social beings, so it is natural to be nurturing, caring and loving to others.
