“wake up song”可以很有效地喊爸爸和哥哥起床呢。我将PED给予的一些建议整理出来
＊ Your newborn has very little head control. Always be sure that anyone
carrying her supports the head, and never shakes it suddenly.
＊ Be sure your crib slats are less than 2 3/4inches apart.
＊ NEVER leave your infant unattended on a bed, sofa or table, even for a
moment. Make sure your smoke alarm functions, and that you have a fire
＊＊ Use car seat for every ride. Place in back seat facing backward (until
12 months old and 20 lbs). Be sure your infant is buckled securely. Infants
who weigh over 20 lbs before one year should switch to a “convertible”
seat facing the rear rather than forward-facing toddler seat.
＊ Put your infant to sleep on the back(not stomach) on a firm, flat
＊ Call the PED immediately if the baby’s temperature is 100.5 F or more
＊＊ Cover electrical outlets. Remove dangling electric and drapery cords
from reach. Install cabinet locks where poisons are stored.
＊ Lower crib mattress before baby can pull himself to standing position.
＊＊ Place safety gates at top and bottom of stairs. Add window locks on
all upstairs windows.
＊ Never use a walker.
＊ Place medicines, cleaners, and poisonous substances out of reach. Do not
rely on safety latches.
＊ Watch out for child grabbing hot pots, curling irons, irons, hot liquids,
or other hot surfaces. Install smoke detectors and check regularly.
＊ Always check water temperature before putting baby in bath. Water heater
temperature should be 120 F or lower. Do not leave the room during bath.
Never leave your infant unattended in the bath, even briefly.
＊ Breast-milk is the best food for your baby throughout the first year.
Breastfeed baby “on demand”. Let the baby deicide when and how long to
＊ Continue prenatal vitamins while breastfeeding. Breast-fed infants may
need Vitamin D supplements.
＊ Bottle-feeding Always use formula with iron.
＊ Feed baby about every 3-4 hours. By 2 months, most babies take 4-5oz
each feeding, 26-28 oz each day. By 4 months, most babies take 5-7 oz each
feeding, 28-32 oz each day.
＊ DO NOT warm bottles in microwave.
＊ Always check the temperature of formula before feeding.
＊ NEVER give baby honey in the first year of life.
＊ Fluoride is recommended for infants 6 months or older who either are
exclusively breast-fed or whose water supply lacks fluoride.
＊ Solid food is usually begun at 4-6 months. Your baby cannot take solids
until she has good head control and does not push food out with tongue.
◆ Breast-fed babies do require a source of iron daily by age 6 months.
Four tablespoons of rice cereal daily is adequate.
◆ Always offer cereal and solids by spoon, never in a bottle unless

oz per day. It should always be 100% juice and pasteurized. Juice should
either be baby juice or diluted fresh juice. Always offer in a cup not a

＊ Child Care and Baby Sitting
Introduce your child to childcare slowly: if possible, part-time is a good
way to start. Staying with your child for the first few sessions will ease
the transition. Review with the caregiver important items/habits your child
may have, such as security objects, methods of self-soothing, or favorite
◆ Choose a Child Care Provider
Find out how many children are cared for by each adult on site. The fewer
children per adult, the more individual attention your child is apt to get.
Ask for references and a daycare license.
Make sure caregivers have CPR certification.
Observe the area where the children are cared for: it should be clean and
If possible, observe caregivers interacting with your child or other
◆ Leaving Your Child with a Baby-Sitter
When you are ready to leave your child with a baby-sitter, it’s essential
that you choose one with whom you feel comfortable. A good baby sitter will
nurture, play with, and respect your child, and knows how to set reasonable
limits. If possible, have the sitter spend time with the baby at your home
for a trial run before you actually leave them for the first time.
＊ Cold Your child may have a runny or stuffy nose with cough,
watery eyes and sneezing.
◆ Treatment Tips:
Use the bulb syringe you were given in the nursery to suction the mucus from
your infant’s nose.
Saline nose drops used with the bulb syringe help clear the nasal passages.
You can make your own Saline nose drops by mixing ½ teaspoon of salt
with one cup of water.
Vaseline applied to nasal openings will help protect them from irritation.
Elevate the head of your child’s bed by placing a folded towel or blanket
under the head of the mattress.
Cold medicine is not recommended for children under 18 months of age.
◆ Call your doctor if:
――Your baby has a fever over 100.4F
――Baby has thick yellow nasal discharge that persists for over 10 days.
――You cannot unblock the nose enough for baby to take adequate fluids.
＊ Fever Most are from colds or viruses.
Healthy babies often pull at their ears. Suspect an ear infection if your
baby develops irritability and poor sleep along with fever or cold symptoms.
Babies with viruses may have high fevers, but after Acetamenophen usually
return to being playful and drinking well.
Worry most about infants with fever who will not smile, drink their milk, or
who have a weak or moaning cry.
Remember that you may not be able to bring a fever all the way down to
＊ Vomiting is usually caused by a stomach or intestinal infection or virus
and is usually self-limiting. Your goal is to prevent baby from getting
dehydrated. Signs and symptoms of dehydration include dry mouth, no urine in
more than 8 hours, no tears, or depression of the “soft spot” in infants.
◆ Treatment Tips:
For the breastfed infant, try feeding for a shorter period of time at more
If breast of bottle milk is vomited, start Pedialyte or Ricelyte in small
amounts for frequent feedings.
Resume formula in infants after several hours without vomiting and a bland
diet for older children after 24 hours without vomiting.
When your child vomits, wait a few minutes after vomiting before offering a
small amount of fluids.
◆ Call your doctor if:
――Your child has severe abdominal pain or has blood in the vomited
――Your child has not urinated in more than 8 hours or has no tears or acts
――Your child has vomited clear fluids 3 times and has watery diarrhea.
――Your child recently suffered a head injury.
――Your child is very fussy or excessively sleepy.
――Your child’s vomiting continues for more than 24 hours.
＊ Diarrhea is usually caused by a virus. Your child loses fluids,
nutrients, salt, and minerals with the diarrhea. Your goal in the treatment
of the child is to prevent dehydration. Over-the-counter anti-diarrheal
medications for children are not recommended.
First 24 hours: For breastfed infants under 6 months of age, continue to
feed at more frequent intervals. Offer bottle-fed babies Pedialyte or
Ricelyte for no longer than 24 hours.
After 24 hours, if diarrhea is decreasing: Offer your breastfed infant over
6 months of age starchy foods such as rice cereal, bananas, of applesauce.
Offer the bottle-fed baby formula and the same starchy foods. Old children
may have a blank diet, including toast, rice, potatoes, or crackers. Avoid
liquids that are high in sugar and salt.
Call your doctor if:
――Your infant under 6 months has an increase in diarrhea stools in 24
――Your child shows sighs of dehydration mucous or blood in the diarrhea.
＊ Temper Tantrums (发脾气) All children have temper tantrums at some
time. Temper tantrums are a child’s way of expressing anger and frustration.
They often occur from 1-5 years of age, and are more common when a child
is tried, hungry or sick.
Children stop having tantrums when:
――They learn they will not get attention from them.
――They learn how to express themselves with words.
――Be consistent with discipline. Don’t have too many rules.
――Have regular naps.
――Offer regular meals and snacks.
――Quietly remove toys which cause frustration- remove objects which tempt
your child to misbehave.
――Be a good role model.
――Do not yell or spank.
――Teach your child how to express him/herself with words.
◆ When your child has a tantrum…
Comfort and soothe child. Praise when successful. Be understanding. Put
child to bed if tired, or feed if hungry. Remove objects (like candy) which
tempt your child to misbehave.
◆ Attention-seeking or demanding tantrums
Ignore these tantrums. Move to different room so child does not have an
audience. Don’t try to reason with child (usually makes tantrum worse). Don't
give in to these tantrums. You can prevent some demanding tantrums by
saying “no” less often.
◆ Refusal tantrums
If your child refuses to do something important like going to daycare,
gently pick him/her up and take to daycare. If child refuses to do something
unimportant, let it go. Some refusal tantrums can be prevented by giving a
5-minute warning instead of asking child to suddenly stop what he/she is
doing. Try to “ask once,” and don’t repeat requests to the child. Guide
the child yourself if you need to.
◆ Disruptive tantrums
Having a tantrum in a public place and hitting are examples of disruptive
tantrums. Send child to his/her room or take child to your car for 1-2
minute time out.
◆ Rage-type tantrums
If child is totally out of control and screaming wildly, or if there is
danger of self-injury (throwing self backwards), you may tell your child “I
love you, but I’m going to hold you until you calm down.”
◆ After a tantrum
Wait for the first good behavior and praise it. (e.g.
“I like the way you…”)
