Being a grandparent brings in joys and experiences like never before. To hold your grandchild's hand and to guide them with your love and wisdom compares to nothing else. To relive all those moments with your child’s baby is one of the most priceless things in life. However, it’s not always easy being a grandparent despite having had practice with your kids, a new generation requires a new approach. One of the biggest blessings as new parents is knowing that the child has hands-on grandparents so that help and experience are readily available when needed. Dr. Flo Rosen—who goes on TikTok by @ask.bubbie—a retired pediatrician who recently became a grandma has just about everything you need for your parenting and grandparenting adventures.
Dr. Rosen went viral on TikTok after she welcomed a beautiful grandbaby into her family. Having been a pediatrician, she has all the tricks to looking after your baby and she elaborates on the same via her videos. Her account has recently become the hub of parenting guidance. She recently posted a video on how to put your baby to sleep. Everyone knows it’s a hassle to get a newborn or infant to sleep, especially during bedtime. Rosen suggested simple settings that can help in making your baby understand when it’s bedtime.
Holding her grandchild in hand while he’s fast asleep, Rosen said, “I have a quick tip on bedtime.” As she was cradling her grandchild she said, “You wanna make sure when you put your baby down that they have cues so that they know it’s bedtime.” She went on to suggest a few ideas for the same. These included turning the lights down, shifting to a calm and quiet atmosphere, putting on quiet music and so on. She added, “When you do your whole routine, put the baby down.”
Lastly, in her video Rosen mentioned that babies are used to sleeping in the day with noise and thriving ambiances. However, she specified, “But make sure bedtime is different.” Several fellow parents were game for trying the idea out to get their baby to sleep. Others even asked for bedtime tips. @bem3470 said, “I did this with my baby at bedtime. Now, she follows the same routine.” @italia1953 said, “I am a mom-baby nurse. I tell my moms the same thing!”
Rosen has indeed been an aid in distress to new moms and others with new experiences. Her videos contain everything from tips for holding your baby to understanding their health, likes, dislikes and more. Being a grandmother herself earns her the leverage to understand baby behavior and needs better than others. In another one of her videos, the retired pediatrician explained how often one should bathe their baby. She said, “Babies need to be bathed only once or twice a week just to get the stickiness off.”
She further said that if babies love their bath time, it can be added every day as part of their routine as long as it doesn’t dry out the baby’s skin. She added, “If the baby’s skin dries out excessively, it runs the risk of your baby getting eczema.” She’s got all the tips and tricks and with millions of views, people can’t get enough. @jamisweetie said, “I’m so glad you said that! People always gave me a hard time for not bathing my babies daily. I didn't see the point.”@kristenego commented on her video with Rosen’s grandbaby saying, “New grandson is getting so big!”
