- Play-time– try dancing, playing catch, practice crawling or walking anything to get your baby to tire itself out.
- Mommy & Baby TV-time – place your baby in a safe stationary spot like a bouncer or playpen and let them watch their favorite cartoon, movie, or TV show.
- Baby Bath-time – a nice warm bath will help relax and calm your baby
- Mommy & Baby Quiet-time – before bedtime, your baby should have some time to chill out and relax. Cuddle with our baby, swing time, bouncy chair that vibrates, etc.
Awareness of what is best for you and your baby can make the difference between life and death when understanding the significant issue with the rate of babies dying before their 1st birthday in Ohio. Studies show that 2.5x more black babies are dying compared to the rate of all other babies. Why Black Babies was created to eradicate this issue and positively change these statistics. We need to rally around our black moms and moms-to-be to ensure they have the education, awareness and support for what they need to have healthy pregnancies and healthy babies. If you know a mom or mom-to-be, share this information with them and give them both the best future possible. More resources and help can be found at our website – spread the word!
