ED’S LETTER

W

hen I was pregnant with my first child, I was very worried about what our little bundle would need. I searched the shops, collected enough baby magazines to build a leaning tower and set up a home library of parenting-advice books. One of those books suggested that all a baby needs is love, warmth and food.

What it didn’t go into is all the things a new parent needs. Parents need strollers to spare their arms, baby gyms to afford them a rare hands-free moment, bottles so that they can share feeding duties and gorgeous little baby outfits to do their hearts proud. Ensuring you have everything you need to journey comfortably into motherhood doesn’t have to mean crippling yourself financially. All it takes is a little research and we’ve got it covered for you in this, the autumn/winter 2011 edition of Edgars Baby. And remember, all your baby goodies can be purchased using your Edgars account. Check out the latest fashion trends as modelled by Hollywood’s littlest celebs in our Get the Look section (p5), find out what pram works best for Elana Meyer, who never misses an opportunity to take her babies out running with her (p15), and find out which bath products are firm favourites (p55). Happy dreaming, planning and shopping, and, most importantly, happy birth day to all the moms-to-be.

get the look

This winter is all about pairing pretty accessories with frills, ruffles and warm layers, say the Edgars trend spotters. Here are some must-have items that’ll give your bambino that stylish superstar look.

The fair-isle jersey Fair-isle prints are back with a bang on jerseys, cardigans, sweaters and jumpers. Fair isle is a knitting technique used to create patterns with multiple colours (often red and green) and is named after a little island in Scotland. Think Scottish kilts and checks and you’ve got the general idea. The sweater dress Long-sleeved dresses in knits down to the knees will keep your baby girl warm and fashionable during the colder months. Pair with studded leggings or jeggings that are easy to whip on and off for nappy changes.

These celebrity tots got the look, thanks to their tinseltown folks. Christina Milian’s Violet is right on trend in her red leggings, jersey dress and matching bows. Dress your leading lady in similar styles and throw in a hint of nostalgic fair isle while you’re at it.

Actress Garcelle Beauvais avoids dressing her fraternal twin boys in identical outfits. She prefers to encourage individual identities and keeps them stylish with a layered look.

The sherpa-lined jacket Sherpa is a synthetic fabric mix of polyester and cotton made to look like sheep’s skin. Look for little jackets with sherpa lining and up the stylishness another notch with a fur-trimmed hood. Baby will be toasty and warm, and you’ll be the proud parent of a mini fashionista. The textured playsuit Look for twin sets made of velour (velvety material) or rose fur (a softer, circular faux fur used for babies). It’ll make you want to cuddle your cutie close all winter. 3D detail Accessorise your baby’s basics with flowers, bows and badges. Chunky scarves, cowlneck ponchos and frilly gilets worn loosely will complete the look.

moms on the run

Getting into shape during and after pregnancy doesn’t have to be like running a marathon. Just ask Elana Meyer.

‘O

nce an athlete, always an athlete’ is a good description of Elana Meyer. Her name is synonymous with the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, where her silver medal in the 10 000metre event was South Africa’s first Olympic medal after years of isolation. Having set some 23 South African records and broken various local and international ones, Elana is still running, but more often after her two young children. Elana admits that with two little ones and a demanding career, it’s not always easy to find the time to exercise, but it remains a priority in her life. Running is still her preferred form of exercise and she makes it work for herself and her children, Christopher (3) and Ene (9 months) by taking them along in the double baby jogger. ‘It’s hard work, but I love it, and it gives me the freedom to exercise without having to rely on extra support,’ Elana says. Expectant moms are often wary of exercising during pregnancy, but Elana ran throughout both her

pregnancies. She advises pregnant moms to find a form of exercise, such as swimming, walking, running or yoga, that works for them. ‘These are all great forms of exercise to keep in shape during pregnancy and will make it a lot easier to recover and give you the fitness to cope with the changes to your body.’ Since retiring from professional athletics in 2005, Elana has been investing her energy and extensive experience in empowering children from disadvantaged communities through sport. Elana and businessman Greg James founded the JAG Foundation in April 2007, with Elana as CEO. Through various sportrelated programmes, the foundation works to unleash the physical and psychological potential of young people, while teaching them valuable life skills. Elana is also a board member of the Western Cape Education Foundation and a judge for the Sport Industry Awards.

Putting together your baby’s nursery requires only three simple steps: colour, furnish and accessorise.

W

hen decorating your new baby’s room, try to find the balance between a stimulating environment and a calming retreat. Choose plain colours and use different shades for the accessories. Camel and red are popular choices for either a boy or a girl’s room. You can add a bit of pink to make it more girlie, or denim for a more boyish look.

Use wallpaper, decorative friezes and wall murals to complete a theme. Try using pictures, poems, nursery rhymes or classic illustrations from old books. Get clever with hooks and rails, boxes, baskets, trunks and other storage options. Use the back of the door, the sides of the cot and any bare wall space as storage. Start collecting pretty boxes and containers. Lighting is very important in a baby’s room. It should be gentle to create a calming atmosphere. Use a combination of dimmer switches, lamps, fairy lights and nightlights. When choosing a cot, there are a few safety features to keep in mind. Some cots have variable height levels and sides that drop down, and some can be converted into beds later. Mattresses should fit the cot well, with no gaps, and should also have ‘breathe-easy’ holes. All bedding, bumpers and inner linings should be

room for baby

made out of natural fabric, preferably 100% cotton. Duvets, quilts and pillows should not be used for the first year. There are many changing tables on the market, but a workbench from a hardware store or an old chest of drawers can also be used. In fact, anything that suits your style or budget will work, as long as the table has a deep enough surface for a changing mat and is the right height – you don’t want to be bending over anything too low. A comfortable chair is often said to be one of your most important purchases. It shouldn’t be too soft or too low, otherwise it’s difficult to get out of the chair with a sleeping baby in your arms. Have a small table nearby for bottles, water and anything else you might need while feeding.

Feeding your baby or toddler correctly is essential for their short- and long-term growth and development. Registered dietician Carol Browne answers some frequently asked questions. Let your doctor and medical team know that you plan to breastfeed, and ask them to allow you to start breastfeeding within one hour of birth. Many babies latch well at this time, which helps them to learn to suckle effectively. Don’t worry if you have problems at first; this is a skill you and your baby must learn. Ask a friend or family member who has breastfed successfully to help you if difficulties arise, or speak to a lactation consultant.

Q

I’m not sure whether or not I want to breastfeed. What will happen if I can’t get it right? This is an important question, and one that parents should consider before their baby is born. Breastfeeding your baby provides more than just nutrition; it has shortand long-term benefits. These include protecting your baby from a variety of illnesses such as pneumonia, diarrhoea and asthma. It has also been said that babies who are breastfed are less likely to be obese later in life. For you, breastfeeding also has benefits, including a reduced risk of haemorrhage after delivery, faster recovery of pre-pregnancy weight, and a reduced risk of breast and ovarian cancer.

A baby should be exclusively breastfed (or formula-fed) from birth until six months

Q

There are so many baby foods to choose from. What do you recommend I start with? From the age of six months your baby will need more energy and nutrients than will be supplied by breast milk or formula. At this time, complementary foods should be introduced to provide these extra nutrients. Breast milk or formula continues to be an essential food; it will supply about half of your baby’s nutritional needs until the age of one year. Commercially produced baby cereal is a good option once

or twice a day as it is enriched with essential nutrients, including iron. Vegetables and fruit are important, and including a variety in your baby’s diet will improve her taste for these foods in later years.

Q

How do I know when my baby is constipated and what can I do about it? Babies under the age of six months who are breastfed will have different stool patterns to those who are formula-fed. Breastfed babies are unlikely to get constipated, and their stools are usually soft. The number of stools a day and the number of days between stools will vary. There are signs you can look out for that may indicate constipation in formula-fed babies: crying and discomfort; dry, hard stools that she has trouble passing; and fewer than three bowel movements a week. If your baby is formula-fed, make sure you are mixing the formula correctly, and if your baby is over six months, check that you are including foods from all food groups in her diet. If you suspect your baby has constipation, do not try any over-the-counter or home remedies, but rather ask your healthcare worker for advice.

Babies learn through play, so start playing with your little one before she’s even born.

Womb with a view Your baby’s first years are a constant journey of discovery. Whether it’s an introduction to new sounds, sensations or experiences, enjoy the fun of playtime while you’re still pregnant. Some games include shining a torch on your bump and seeing if you can get baby to move in the direction of the light. The same can be tried with sound and touch. Tell your baby stories and sing to him or her. The world at large After babies are born, their senses will be even stronger than they were in vitro and will continue to develop over time. Make sure that you include a range of toys and games that will appeal to all of the senses.

playtime

1) Sight

3) Touch

Choose toys with bright, contrasting colours and interesting patterns. Babies love to look at themselves in small mirrors so attach one securely at eye level inside the crib or cot. Flashing lights are also a great source of entertainment for older babies.

Your baby’s tactile development is crucial to a number of life skills, like chewing and swallowing. Make sure you expose your baby to different textures like rough and smooth, soft and hard. Toddlers will love messy play that lets them stick their fingers in jelly or make a mud pie.

2) Sound Noisy toys are a delight to all infants; just make sure you choose ones that won’t annoy you! Look for baby toys with a crinkle feature, squeakers, jingles, rattles, chimes or music and songs. The best option is a toy that requires an action to activate the sound, for example, pull the string and a nursery rhyme plays.

4) Taste Oral exploration is key to your baby’s development, which means that everything from the car keys to the TV remote will have to be rescued from your baby’s mouth at one stage or another. Instead of discouraging the mouthing of objects, give your infant a range of safe, clean toys to suck, taste and explore. Chewy, textured teething surfaces will also provide soothing relief for baby’s sore gums.

5) Smell Your baby’s sense of smell will be very acute. Look out for scented dollies and make a habit of introducing your baby to different olfactory experiences. A sprig of lavender in the garden, vanilla essence when you’re baking, fabric softener when you’re doing the washing – these are all smells your baby will find stimulating and enjoyable.

Tip: Toys keep a baby amused and are a vital factor in the early learning 2 experience. Babies learn about their world by using all five of their senses: sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. It is important that all these senses are engaged and stimulated by the toys they are given so choose wisely.

sixtheof best Just in case you haven’t been given enough advice already, here are author and mother of three Giselle Willcox’s top six new-mom must-haves!

1

Dummy. Whoever said you their 147th consecutive episode shouldn’t give your baby of Antiques Roadshow. I have a dummy is a dummy! Do you done it and it is not pretty. care that eight years of dummy sucking might cause him to land A baby monitor is up with buck teeth? Looking a to the control-freak bit funny is the least he can do mother what the for you after all you’ve gone through. Besides, skew teeth remote control is will build character.

2

Ear plugs. Ear plugs equal sanity. When your husband is watching the rugby – I mean looking after the kids – and one of them is about to put lip gloss on the dog, that’s when you need to stick in your ear plugs and take a nap.

3

Baby monitor. A baby monitor is to the control-freak mother what a remote control is to a man. I am prepared to hear it all – coughing, choking, even the ‘Waka Waka’ (Sophie, my youngest, likes to sing this at 5:30am) – just to know that she’s fine. But the trick – and don’t say you haven’t been warned – is not to fight with your husband in your baby’s room when the monitor is on in the lounge, where your parents-in-law are watching

to a man

4

Grandparents. Grandparents are an essential – if they can still stomach you after you fought with their beloved boy on air, of course. But they mustn’t give advice. Not once. Ever. They must only speak when spoken to. But when you are in tears, they must not only speak, they must say exactly the right thing. If they don’t say the right thing, you’ll have no choice but to have Sunday lunch with the other set of grandparents from now on.

5

Nappy bag. I am a bag lady. As with most women, I carry the world in not only my handbag, but my nappy bag too. Everything you need is only an arm’s length away at any time.

6

Wet wipes. A world without wet wipes would be a sad place indeed. Wet wipes are fabulous for wiping away your tears when you’ve absolutely had enough. Oh yes, and they’re good for your baby too. Best of all, though, wet wipes are great for cleaning up your other kids on the way to Granny’s house so that it doesn’t look as though you’ve neglected your older ones in favour of your newborn and are a bad mother.
