Many parents of twins purchase multiple cribs when they are putting together the nursery only to find out that their babies want to sleep together. Don’t buy two cribs until after you have had the babies. Some babies however will never be able to fall asleep if in the same crib. Find out which type of children you have before making the investment in a new crib. If you do want to buy it early, make sure they have a good return policy just in case. Consistency is essential when parenting children.
Children need to know what is expected of them every time. If you are not consistent with your expectations, it could cause your child to get confused and not know what it expected of them. Keeping expectations constant makes life easier for both the parent and the child. If you’re wrong or you’ve made a mistake, make sure your admit it.
Everyone makes mistakes and it’s important that your child knows this. If you don’t admit to your mistakes, why should you expect you child to admit to theirs? Children learn by example, so make sure you’re setting a good example for them. For young children, don’t underestimate the power of naps. They need more sleep than an older kid. Children can usually stop napping around five or six years old.
Young toddlers should be taking up to two naps a day, and children 1.5 and older should still be taking one nap per day.
A great parenting tip is to never verbally abuse your child. Abuse is abuse, no matter what form it is. Verbally abusing your child can make them feel worthless, confused, and can lead to a multitude of emotional problems in their later life.
Never verbally abuse your child under any circumstances.
Although most medication labeling states dosages according to age in years, you should consult your pediatrician if your child falls within those age ranges but is significantly heavier or lighter than other kids his or her age. Children metabolize certain medications much differently than adults, and dosing based on weight is more likely to deliver a therapeutic amount of the active ingredient.
