1.  Panic very often

 

 Some parent panic immediately seeing their babies spit, vomit or pee out of nowhere. This is not a good sign for parents as these things are very common and everyone has to go through this someday or other in their lifetime. Studies show that babies pick up anxiety very quickly if reacted in that manner.

 

2.  Not letting the baby cry

 

According to study parents usually think that the babies should not cry, this is a myth. Babies are designed to cry, that’s the way they communicate. For most of the time crying is just a routine for your little one but if you think your child is gloomy or dreary or has a fever i.e. anything unusual call your doctor as soon as possible as you know your baby better than anyone else.

 

 

 3. Fever in a newborn

 

According to sources a fever over 100 degrees in the first couple of months in a newborn is a sign of danger. Immunizations are given during the first 24 hours for these conditions but still there are chances of infection. If your child feels warm and the temperature is above 100 degrees call the doctor immediately.

 

 

 4. Showing your anxiety to your baby

 

Babies are very smart, they pick your emotional signals and learn very fast. They know what irritates you the most and sometime they use that against you to get what they want. So don’t give in to them, otherwise they’ll do that again and again to get whatever you want and you won’t be able to stop them.
