How to Handle a Newborn Baby?

The things you need for a baby will come next, but first, you will carry your baby and handle him. The fragility of babies may be intimidating, but you must jeep note of the following few things before the contact as well.

-Newborns do not come with a very strong immune system, so they are always at risk of infection. Wash your hands before handling your baby. Always make sure that everyone who handles your baby for you also has clean hands.

–  Support your baby’s neck and head. Cradle the head when you are carrying your baby around and support the  head when carrying the baby upright or laying your baby down.

– If you have to wake your infant up, don’t do it by shaking; instead, you can tickle your baby’s feet or gently blow on a cheek

– Never shake the newborn, either in play or in frustration. Shaking may cause bleeding in the baby’s brain and also cause death.

–  Make sure your baby is fastened securely in the stroller, carrier, or car seat. Limit all such activities that are too bouncy or rough.

– Always remember that your newborn isn’t ready to have a rough play such as being jiggled on the knees or thrown into the air.

Essential newborn care will always include being close to your child and giving him the warmth of your body to develop a strong emotional connection with him. For complete newborn care, you must make sure you are having most of your time with the baby and are around him at all times.

Bathing Basics

You must give your baby a sponge bath until:

–         The umbilical cords fall off, and the navel completely heals, i.e., around 1 to 4 weeks

–         The circumcision heal takes 1 to 2 weeks

A bath done two or three times a week during the first year is fine. More frequent bathing might cause drying of the skin. You should have the following items to bath your baby:

–         A soft clean washcloth

–         Mild, unscented baby soap and shampoo

–         A soft brush to stimulate the baby’s scalp

–         Towels and blankets

–         A clean diaper

–         Clean cloths

These newborn essentials for bathing him will help maintain his physical health and not seem too harsh on the soft skin.
