New Born Care (0-28 Days)
The first few weeks and months of a baby's life are crucial for their growth and development, and it is important for parents to have the knowledge and resources to give their newborns the best possible start.
Newborn care encompasses a wide range of topics, from feeding and diapering to sleep and safety. Our goal is to provide you with comprehensive information and practical tips to help you care for your newborn with confidence.
"A baby is a blessing. A gift from heaven above, a precious little angel to cherish and to love."
Feeding:- Breastfeeding is the recommended method of feeding for most newborns. It provides all the necessary nutrients for growth and development and helps protect against infections and illnesses. However, it can also be challenging for new mothers, and it may take time for both the mother and baby to learn how to breastfeed effectively. Our team of lactation consultants can provide guidance and support to help you overcome any breastfeeding challenges.
Diapering:-Newborns require frequent diaper changes, usually every 2-3 hours. It is important to keep the diaper area clean and dry to prevent diaper rash and other skin irritations. We can provide tips on proper diapering techniques and recommend diaper rash creams or ointments if necessary.
Sleep:- Newborns sleep for an average of 16–17 hours per day, but they typically do not sleep for more than a few hours at a time. It is important to create a safe and comfortable sleep environment, such as by placing the baby on their back in a crib with a firm mattress and no loose bedding or toys. We can provide guidance on establishing healthy sleep habits and coping with sleep disturbances.
Safety:- Newborns are vulnerable to accidents and injuries, so it is important to take precautions to keep them safe. This includes properly installing a car seat, using safe sleeping practices, and keeping harmful objects out of reach. We can provide guidance on infant safety and recommend any necessary safety equipment, such as baby gates or cabinet locks.
