4—Algeria (la.) Upper Des Moines Thursday, April 13, 1967 EDITOR'S NOTE - This colnm;i of Woman's World Is a reprint from the Wednesday, May 3, 1950 Issue of the Algona Upper Des Moines. - o - THIS IS NATIONAL BABY WEEK, but It doesn't change things a bit, for once a homo is blessed with one of the little bandies from heaven, every week Is baby week. Last week was "Get More Sleep Week", and it is Interesting to note that the two weeks d:> not run concurrently. Once there's a baby in the house, parents find themselves sleeping when the baby isn't looking. - o - SLEEPING HABITS AREN'T THE ONLY things that change with the arrival of Baby. It is amazing how one little person whose only accomplishments are eating, sleeping and yelling can take over a whole household. Two normally independent people suddenly find themselves being rule'J by His Majesty, King Baby, and they gladly rearrange their living schedule to fit dim. - o - BEFORE OUR FIRST BABY ARRIVED, we were determined that the baby wasn't going to change things very much at our house. We decided beforehand just how and when the baby would eat and what habits we would start him forming immediately. 1 read books and articles on babies and knew a great deal more about caring for Infants than I do now. Baby evidently hadn't read the same books because although he did everything he was supposed to, he always picked the wrong time to do it. The self- demand feeding plan wasn't yet generally used, and our new son wanted to eat constantly instead of every four hours. Nowadays, Baby is fed when lie is hungry. It all works out just about the same excepting now you are allowed to break the schedule with a clear conscience. - o - I SHALL NEVER FOUGET THE FIRST time we left our firstborn and went out for a little entertainment of our own. Grandma was likely to give the baby proper care during the two hours wo planned to l>e gone. I left her with adequate instructions - two pages of them - on exactly how to care for him, Including feeding and burping procedures, diaper changes and our doctor's home and office telephone numbers ; Grandma had raised five babies, but she had never taken care of a "Special One" like ours. About half-way through the movies, I guiltily remrnnliered that I had not given my baby a thought for at least ten minutes. At home, the baby slept the entire two hours! - o - WHENEVER I AM TEMPTED TO BE a little smug about how busy the mothers of first babies are, I have only to remember myself at that stage. Never before or since have I worked so hard. The second one is a lot easier, but rarely resembles the first one in habits, and you have to learn all over again. It is then that you start propping up the bottle once in a while and giving him his airing, without pushing him downtown. But it is wonderful to have enough time to care for your baby the way you know it should be done. - o - I AM \ CONFIRMED BABY CARRIAGE peeker-inner and I have yet to find a baby I didn't think was attractive. Of course, my own were all exceptionally beautiful, weren't yours? It is a typical male -originated fallacy that all newborns look alike, and none too pretty at that. We girls know it just isn't so. One man, upon seeing a group of blanket-wrapped new-borns, lined up in the hospital, said they looked just like so many Hot Dogs I - o - THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT BABY CARE is that fathers have finally found that they are capable of holding, feeding and even bathing their tiny infants! It is very fashionable for them to do so. What's more, they are enjoying itl So it isn't only Mother who is helped by this new trend. This all started, I think when fathers who were away at the war, came home and found they had missed out on a lot of fun during their first baby's infancy. With subsequent children they nude up for lost time and found that baby care is fun for daddy, too, and other fathers caught on. A new baby will not break so easily as it might seem. But they do bend alarmingly and in some of the most unlikely places. - o - 1 RECEIVED ANOTHER OF THOSE NICE friendly letters. This time it was from Mrs. Robert Detrick, Algona. This week's subject should be right down her alley for she has two babies, 3 months and 1C months old. Both of them are cutting teeth. She says, "I wonder if all farm mothers have as much trouble keeping their toddlers clean as I do. Would certainly appreciate any hints anyone might have on how to train a 16-month-old who changes his habits as fast as you think you have' him squared around." I don't think the dirt problem is confined to farm mothers. I have lots of ideas on the latter subject, but most of them don't work. At least till Baby is older. - o - THE BOX ELDER PROBLEM IS STILL with us, judging from the mail. This week heard from Mrs. Ray Kading of Fenton and Mrs. Julis Pergande of LuVerne. I haven't heard yet how effective Grace's box elder bug remedy is, but I hope it is working. - o - I TALKED WITH MRS. J. C. MAWDSLEY downtown Saturday and she said her solution to the leftover bread problem is to make it into French toast. Her teenagers, Richard and Mary, eat big breakfasts of it. Mrs. Mawdsley said she had planned to write to this column, but she thought perhaps I had too much mail! Perish the thought. I doubt if any columnist, even Billy Rose, ever gets too much mail. Although more letters are coming in than before, I am anxiously waiting to hear from more of you. - o - OPHELIA, THE KITCHEN CYNIC, HAS this to say of Baby Week. "There is one way that an argument and a family are just alike. It takes two to start either." GRACE PERSONALS MR. AND MRS. Herman Jaskulke of Granada, Minn., Mr. and Mrs. Martin Greise oi Hurt, Mr. and Mrs. Gene Faulstick and John spent Sunday evening at the Gertrude Faulstich home. Sylvia German and Gertrude Faulstich spent Monday evening at the Florence Brown home. GERTRUDE Faulstich received a call from her son, St/srgt Charles Faulstich from Knob Noster, Mo., telling her that she became a grandma for the 23rd time. An 8 lb. ( 2 oz., baby- boy arrived at their home that day. They adopted a baby boy 3 1/2 years ago, a year later they had a baby girl of their own, and now a baby boy.
