Even though baby is protective but it doesn't mean you will put your baby at home all the time. But how to involve baby in other activities in right way, HappyMom.Life is sharing some tips for baby care as belows.
Doctors recommend sun therapy with the baby, during the first month of life. Exposure to sunlight should be for 15 minutes, three times a day. But the key is in the first eight days of the child’s life. It is advisable to take the newborn in a diaper so that he receives the sun throughout his body.
The right time to expose the baby to the sun is between 7:00 and 9:00 in the morning and after 4:30 in the afternoon. This therapy is important because it prevents jaundice, a disease that occurs because the liver of most babies is immature and cannot eliminate bilirubin completely, which produces a yellowish tone on your skin and makes you sleepy.
Doctors advise mothers to breastfeed because of the high nutritional value of breast milk. It contributes water to the child and contributes to its growth. This is the food that must be supplied during the first six months of life. Afterwards, complementary foods such as compotes and fresh fruit can be added to the diet. If the baby loses fluids, it can become dehydrated. The symptoms are dark yellow urine, sunken eyes, sparse saliva, and few tears. In this case, you should continue with breastfeeding and give sugary or salty water (pediatric saline solution).
Early stimulation consists of exercising the upper and lower extremities with circular movements, at least three times a day, during the first six months of life. This strengthens the communication between the child and the mother. The doctors advise not to split the baby, nor to tie it since it has been detected that this is one of the most common practices on the part of the mothers of family.
