Newborn baby care becomes important as the child in that age is not able to completely express the feelings about any need or problem. So I would like to share some valuable information concerning your baby care that is very essential on daily basis for the upbring of your child.

Breast Feeding : Mother’s milk is exclusively essential for the child during first six months of age. Besides containing all the basic vitamins, minerals and nutrients it also contains disease-fighting substances that protect your baby from illness. You should avoid supplementing any preparation, honey and water during the first six months of child.

Induce Burp : After breastfeeding the child you should give a couple of pats on back to release the burp. As child may swallow air during breastfeeding due to which he/she vomits some milk out. So inducing burp release the symptoms making the baby comfortable.

Maintain Temperature : At initial months of age the baby is so fragile that it easily can catch cold even when the days are hot. So you should avoid lying baby directly under the fan / air conditioner and try to always maintain the temperature. The question arises how many clothes should we make the child to wear. The simple formula is we should wear one extra layer of clothing from the number of clothes mother is wearing. But remember that whenever we touch hands and legs of the baby, they should feel warm.

Maintain Hygiene : Baby in first six months has very high tendency to catch infections. So while taking baby in your arms, you should wash your hands or use hand sanitizer and your clothes should also be neat and clean. Similarly maintain the hygiene of baby either by bathing or towelling according to the whether and changing the clothes.

Medical Advice : If your baby is drinking less milk, becomes lethargic, hands and legs are cold or suffering from diarrhea then all these conditions are the indicator of infection in the child which requires immediate medical advice. You should consult a pediatrician or a good child specialist without much delay..
