Crying babies are healthy, even babies who cry for a long time, and atleast one a day.
From the moment your baby is born, you feel concerned about the your baby’s appetite and nutrition. From breast feeding or bottle feeding , to the introduction of solids, finger foods and beyond.
Breast Feeding or bottle feeding:
Breastfeeding is completely natural, and gives your baby the very best start in your life by providing your baby with antibodies via the colostrum produced in the early days after birth. While the term formula feeding, is giving your baby formula milk in a bottle. Formula milk is based on cow’s milk that’s been processed to make it more easily digested by the new baby.
Burping your baby:
All babies swallow some air when they drink milk. The air collects in the stomach, causing the child to feeluncomfortable full even before he has finished feeding. Burping helos to reduce the discomfort your baby feels after his feed as air is expelled from the stomach. To burp your baby, you may wish to adopt one of the following positions:
o Hold him upright with his head resting on your shoulder
o Place your baby in a sitting position on your lap.
To avoid any discomfort to your baby, burp him during a feed and at the end of the feed.
Introducing Solid food:
Solid food should be started most commonly closer to 6 months. At around 6 months, the iron stores that baby gained in utero begin to run low, which is one of the reasons solids should be started around this time. The baby food should be fine, runee puree and smooth in consistency.
The general rule for newborns is to change your baby about as often as you feed him. Remember if there are any solids in the diaper dispose of these in the toilet. The used diaper can be rolled into a tight ball using grip Tabs to seal it and dispose it. DO NOT flush the diaper down the toilet.
The perfect fit diaper enables babies comfort sleep along with super dry conditions.
The baby’s skin is so soft and smooth and just delightful to touch. However, this also means that the skin is very sensitive and prone to bouts of the occasional irritating skin problem and when baby is irritated, chances are parents too.
A baby’s skin is 30 times softer than from yours skin and need to be treated in a different way. Always bear in mind that the more chemical there in a product, the more harmful it may be for a baby. As a general thumb rule, avoid buying products that contain fragrances, colouring, alcohol, deodorant, and dye-all of which can cause skin irritation.
Being the first-time mother, taking care of your new born can be a enjoying as well as challenging experience.
Baby Bath: Always check with a suitable thermometer the water temperature: it will not exceed 36 - 37 degrees, while the room must be around 23 degrees so that the baby does not feel any cold. Before washing him Woo Woo the baby, let him familiarize, rock him gently in the water, talk to him and share the pleasure of that moment.
Bed time: Bedtime is a key moment for the child because it helps him to recover the energies spent in the great adventure of growing. However, sleep quietly is not always easy, both for the child but above all for his parents.
