Dr. Smita is a pediatrician and mom who talks to a lot of newborn parents. From the minute we get that pink plus sign on the home pregnancy test, we’re told again and again that a baby is going to bring us nonstop joy and happiness. Let’s talk about some practical steps that can help bring you closer to your baby and back to yourself. And in Covid times, I had another mom who would just leave her laundry outside and her parents would pick it up, take it to their house to wash and fold and bring it back to her porch.
Start by setting the scene; perhaps it’s time to install (or simply lower) some room-darkening shades, which can be a real game-changer if it’s too bright at bedtime or you need to help your child adjust to a time change. Short-term use of a product like Mommy’s Bliss Kids Sleep Gummies, which contains melatonin, Mommy’s Bliss Kids Sleep Chewable, which contains melatonin, magnesium and calming herbs, or Mommy’s Bliss Kids Sleep Liquid, which has melatonin and calming herbs, can help support your child’s natural sleep process. Another idea: try an organic cough and mucus syrup specially formulated for bedtime, like Mommy’s Bliss Organic Kids Cough Syrup and Mucus Night Time. It’s made with organic honey, agave, and ivy leaf, which can help when your child is coughing to clear mucus*, and has herbs like chamomile, lemon balm, and passionflower to promote relaxation*.

Newborns mostly see in black, white, and shades of gray; color vision doesn’t develop until a bit later in babyhood (along with their ability to see farther and farther away). Something else that’s interesting about newborns is that they have a very keen and distinct sense of smell, and they can always smell their mom (or whoever carried them), even if she’s on the other side of the room. A lot of dads have a hard time feeding their newborn a bottle if the birth mom is nearby; the baby knows there
Simethicone-containing drops, like Mommy’s Bliss Gas Relief Drops, can help break-up the bubbles, relieving the pressure and providing fast relief. But gripe water has been a long-time go-to for moms battling colic for a reason: It can help ease baby’s fussiness. Mommy’s Bliss Gripe Water, for instance, is made with organic ginger and fennel, both baby-safe ingredients traditionally used to relieve symptoms from colic. Here, the salt water solution works to dilute the mucus in baby’s nose, making this a safe and gentle way to relieve congestion.
