Feeding Support

A crucial part of newborn sleep is ensuring that your baby is well fed.

 HushaBoo offers feeding support for parents who are struggling with any area of feeding whether you are breastfeeding, formula feeding or a mixture of both. Support is always offered with a non-judgemental approach. Whilst breastfeeding has so many benefits for both mother and baby, we understand that for whatever the reason, some babies need to be fed formula milk. We want to make sure that both you and your baby are happy by providing extensive, current advice to give you as much choice as possible.

Some common issues we can provide support and advice for include:

  • Incorrect latch leading to nipple soreness
  • Understanding supply and demand
  • Importance of responsive feeding
  • Position and attachment
  • Nipple confusion
  • Supply worries
  • Milk routines vs paced feeding
  • The use of hand massage/expression
  • Correct make up and storage of formula
  • Spotting tongue tie

This month at HushaBoo we're talking about baby sleep products, more specifically sleeping bags. It's getting colder so you may be thinking about how to keep your little one warm at night.

They are one of the most widely used baby sleep products and there's no surprise that 95% of family households have them. Here are some of the reasons I think they are a necessity:
⭐️ constant warmth
⭐️safety
⭐️easy to wash
⭐️positive sleep association
⭐️stops trapped feet
⭐️stops toddlers escaping!

It's a saturated market with many different brands claiming they have the perfect design, so how do you know where to start?

To help with the confusion, take a look at the latest blog here hushaboo.co.uk/best-of-sleeping-bags/ that looks at different options that suits every family.

If you already have children, feel free to post your own sleeping bag recommendations below! If you have a request for another product review then comment below and I will do my best to cover this in the coming months. And don't forget to add a cute photo of your little one looking snug in their sleeping bag...

What can you do to support World Mental Health Day? If someone you know is struggling just a quick call or even a message to let them know you’re there for them could make their day.

Mums in particular need support or to know support is there if they need it. Sleep deprivation is one of the leading causes in maternal mental health issues so if you’re struggling, know that you’re not alone. Just here at HushaBoo alone I see many parents feeling overwhelmed with life with a newborn, baby or toddler. It’s hard work but by reaching out to someone for help, it will instantly take that weight off your shoulders. So if that’s you, or someone you know, make today the day you make that leap #itsokaynottobeokay

HushaBoo Night Nanny & Sleep Consultant

Just back from an amazing break in Marrakech so I will be in touch with anyone who has been in touch in the next 48 hours. My next admin day is Friday so anyone asking for phone calls, these will be scheduled for then.

3 out of 5 nights, he just couldn’t quite make it to bed! All that swimming and sight seeing took its toll! So whilst we had planned to be quite relaxed with bedtimes, his body clock decided otherwise!

I’m also really glad we made the decision not to fly until he was a bit older. We made 4 flights when he was a baby pre-walking (and it was easy!), but thought that a holiday wouldn’t be much fun with a toddler. This time round now he’s 3, the flight was so easy I even managed to watch 8 episodes of 13 reasons why!!

I’d also really recommend Morocco for a family break, lovely and warm this time of year for those with under 5’s, Moroccan people love children and Davey was greeted with a high 5 everywhere we went. We booked with Rachel at Holiday Designers who made our trip easy from start to finish. Can’t wait for the next one! Feel free to ask any holiday related questions below...
