How to care for infants?
Early infant care and etiquette will define their future character, ilk and strength. Here is a to-do list so that you baby is hale and hearty:
A baby is 10 times more sensitive to infections than adults. Therefore proper hygiene habits every time you get hold of the baby is crucial. Wash your hands and enforce everyone to wash their hands before they touch the baby. Make sure the clothes that the baby sleeps on are sterilized and washed thoroughly to avert the possibility of an infection. An infant doesn’t crawl or walk and therefore does not get dirty. Though advisable, it is not mandatory to bathe an infant. But it is extremely binding to clean the private areas, chin and neck folds. A change in diaper also requires gentle cleansing of the umbilical cord until the baby is 2 months old.
Depending on the infant’s nature, he might or might not be cranky. But putting a baby to sleep is a task. If the baby doesn’t sleep, it gets difficult for a mother to shut her eyes for a while too. But be rest assured with Healers at Home, when you feel you are too tired to continue running for the baby, we are here to take care of both the mother and the infant!
Infants survive on breast milk. As and when they grow, their diet chart needs to be varied in a way that they are sufficed with all the nutrients required for healthy development of their mind and body. An expert consultation is required to draft a diet chart according to the baby’s age.
As essential it is to exhaustively pay attention to an infant, it is equally imperative to pay heed to the mother.
