‘TIS THE SEASON
In the spirit of giving I would like to give away my book to 6 lucky winners in this easy contest. There will be 3 eBooks given for iPad, and 3 eBooks for Kindle. The drawings will be held on the last 3 Sundays in December 2013. Odds of winning this weekend Dec. 15th are high with only a couple of days to enter!
I have been sharing observations, experience, wisdom, and research about newborn babies, and about the experience of having a newborn. Perhaps I’ve missed some things along the way that are important to you. Here is an opportunity for you to share your newborn concerns, questions, requests for more or new information about newborns and newborn care. You may enter as many times as you like.
Anyone may enter the contest.
You may enter as many times as you like, a different concern or question per entry.
You may give you winning prize as a gift to someone else.
If you have an iPad, start your contest entry with the word iPad for the Apple version of the book.
If you have a Kindle or Kindle Reading Application, start your contest entry with the word Kindle for the Amazon version of the eBook.
Entries will be numbered consecutively as they appear on the website. All iPad entries will be assigned consecutive numbers (1-n) as they appear in the list. All Kindle entries will be assigned consecutive numbers (1-n) as they appear in the list.
Research Randomizer will be used to generate the random winning numbers, one for each group, each week, for a total of 6 winners.
Winners will be posted on Sundays, the day of the drawing.
Each week will start with a new Post to announce the last winner and to request new entries. You may resubmit entries from a prior week, and you may add new entries too.
You will have 2 days to accept your winning eBook. After 11:59 PM on the Tuesday following the Sunday drawing your win will be forfeited if not claimed.
Prizes will be sent via email.
Apple Codes expire 4 weeks after issue.
So jot down all of those questions that have popped into your mind, and go ahead and start entering them here at the end of this blog. Remember to start each entry with iPad or Kindle.
For you and yours,
D. Fravert, RN
Note: There were no entries for the first drawing Dec. 15, 2013.
My best friend just had her first baby girl a few weeks ago and she has no experience on helping her baby daughter sleep through the night… Could you please provide her some good tips? I would love to win your book for her to assist her, too.
I appreciate your advice, thank you very much and Happy Holidays!

My apologies for the late reply. So sorry!
As the only other entry for this December contest I am happy to award you a winning copy of my book. I just need to know if you want the iPad version or the Kindle version of the book.
Unfortunately for your best friend, and for all sleep deprived new mothers, newborn babies need to eat about every three hours in order to maintain healthy growth and development. The usual advice for the night-time hours is to allow up to 5 hours between feeds if the baby is still sleeping, but to wake the baby at 5 hours for feeding. Most newborns will wake on their own before 5 hours due to hunger.
Scientist believe babies are designed, by their long light-sleep patterns, to wake frequently for survival. This post shares more information about baby sleep https://aboutyournewborn.wordpress.com/2012/08/20/newborn-sleep-knowing-this-helps/.
Also, your friend should seriously consider making up for lost sleep by taking power naps during the day. Here is another post that will help make power napping understandable and desirable whether or not you are a new parent https://aboutyournewborn.wordpress.com/2012/11/09/your-newborn-how-power-napping-helps-you/.
I look forward to hearing from you about the version of eBook you need, and thank you for your entry,

Kindle. My daughter is expecting a baby and I would love to win your book for her. We are concerned that the baby may be premature because of her history. What can we expect if the baby is premature?
