How To Take Care Of Your New Born?

1.  Breastfeeding

The experience of breastfeeding is special for so many reasons- the joyful bonding with your baby and the health benefits for both mother and child.

2. Urine & Stools

  • After the first 72 hrs, a baby should pass urine at least 6 times in 24 hrs.
  • Urine should be in large quantities and transparent.
  • Stool should be golden yellow after the first 72 hrs.
  • Stool frequency is unpredictable – a baby may pass 7-8 times a day or once in 7 days.
  • A baby’s stool may occasionally be green in color, which is normal.

3. Diaper Care

Best is the use of cloth diapers. If disposables must be used, then
  • Use diaper rash cream before use, and after every cleaning.
  • Apply on the entire area in touch with the diaper.
  • Change diapers frequently, especially after the baby passes stool. There is a higher tendency of urinary infection if you leave it on.

4. Baby Bath

A baby should be given a bath after the first 24 hrs.
  • Both traditional (baby on lap) and tub bath are fine.
  • Water should be lukewarm; any gentle/mild soap can be used.
  • Oil massage can precede the bath after the baby is 7-10 days old.
  • Wiping the baby dry right after the bath is the most important thing to keep in mind.
  • If the baby has dry skin, baby lotion or cream may be applied as a moisturizer after the bath.

5. Signs of illness

A small amount of vomiting, occasional sneezing or cough and hiccups are normal in a baby. But if you encounter any of the below-mentioned signs, then bring your baby immediately to the hospital.
  • If the baby’s skin has turned blue.
  • If the baby is not breathing.
  • When the baby’s skin is deep yellow in color, it might be jaundice.
  • Abnormal movements like fits and rolling-up of eyes.
  • If the baby is not feeding well.
  • If the baby is very lethargic/dull (i.e. sleeps a lot).
