Tips On Newborn Baby Development
Feeding Habits for Utmost Care
Mostly, a child that relies only on mother’s milk for its food, tends to get hungry for every two hours. After three months when you start giving your child some semi-solid diet, feed them with alternate course of water and milk. Never over feed your baby. Feed it until the baby itself turns away from food. Feed your baby whenever it feels hungry and only when it feels hungry. Do not overfeed or underfeed the baby. Feed it during certain intervals of time. You even need to feed it in the middle of the night.
Sweet Sleeping Time
A new child needs lots and lots of nice sleep. You should maintain a sleeping routine for your child. Make your child know and feel when it is time to sleep. Set up a regular atmosphere for your baby to sleep. Adjust the light settings to dim your lights and make the room calm and serene.
Do not make your baby sleep in total darkness but also, see to it that the light is not too bright in your baby’s room. Your baby needs to sleep without any disturbances from outside. Never use a pacifier or anything on the mouth to put your child to sleep. Stay with your baby until it sleeps. Rock its crib, if necessary.
Keep your Baby Clean
Giving a bath for a new born may first look fussy, but you need to get practiced to it to prevent your child from diseases. Maintain a comfortable position for your baby. See to that the water doesn’t flow into your baby’s nose. Keep the water warm and feel it before pouring it on the baby. If your baby cries too much to bath, try putting the baby in the bath tub. Wipe your baby immediately when the bath is over. Apply powder on the chest to keep it warm.
Baby Body Massage
Giving your baby a thorough oil massage once in a week would keep your baby active. Apply baby oil or olive oil to your child’s body and massage well. Stretch out legs and arms.
Apply a little force. Use rounding movements. Take your baby into sunlight to get proper vitamin D for the skin. It is good to bathe after the massage.
The Cry Message

The gas Bubble Trouble
Don’t make your baby lie down at once after finishing the feed. Put your child on your shoulder in a way that it’s stomach is pressed against your body. The child would give a burp. Only after getting that sound let your baby down. Or else there may be a gas bubble formation and irritate the baby.
