It’s the start of a new year and some new little lives need names.
Essential Baby have put together the top New Zealand names for 2013.
Is your little birdie’s name in the top 10? Here is the link -> New Zealand Top Baby Names 2013
While these lists really are useless (as I am assuming that most people will not need to know what the most popular names are to provide their infant a name for the rest of their lives), it really is fun to look at.
As a parent you always try and do what is best for your baby birds which often includes using the latest in technology to monitor their safety.
If you (or someone you know) owns an ‘Angelcare baby monitor’ you need to read this article today published on Essential Baby.
It has been discovered that two babies have died as a result of strangulation caused by the cords attached to the cot monitoring system and a full recall has been ordered.

Do you swaddle your baby?

Essential Baby has published an article whereby Dr Hiscock of the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute advises that swaddling your little bird can lead to walking developments and hip issues to some children.
Your swaddle should be tight around the top and lose enough for movement of the little bird’s legs.

In our nest both our baby-birds have loved the ‘Love to Dream Wrap me up Swaddle’. We use it to encourage a peaceful sleep and also as sleep trigger when we are not at home. We definitely recommend it to anyone with a little one.
What do you use? A traditional blanket? A full swaddle? Nothing at all?
