Why does my baby resist her crib during naptime?

Why does my baby resist her crib during naptime?

Crib and Nap: You are probably responding to her cries too quickly. It is a learned response for the baby. She cries and you run in. The more she cries, the more you run in. I say, put her down and let her cry for a while. Let her see that she does not always get what she wants with the crying. Otherwise she is simply training you instead of the other way around. ...Read more

20 weeks pregnant baby in cephalic position is this normal?

20 weeks pregnant baby in cephalic position is this normal?

Yes: Hi! Cephalic presentation means that the head is down which is the right position for a normal vaginal delivery. Since it's only 20th week, baby still has some room to move but most likely will not turn around.
