Taking care of a newborn is a very difficult thing, especially for new parents, it may be at a loss, so what are the tips for taking care of a newborn that can make you more at ease?
1. Hold your newborn safely
Newborn babies often love to be cuddled, and mothers should have skin-to-skin contact with their babies as soon as possible after delivery. You need to hold your baby in a safe way that supports the head. Babies may be happy to snuggle against your chest, be held in your arms, or rest their head on your shoulder. Some newborns love being swaddled, and there's evidence that swaddling can calm babies and help them fall asleep.
2. Feed your baby
Newborn babies eat less and more often. So you need to feed your baby frequently. Recognizing signs that your baby is hungry may help them eat more calmly. Breastfeeding your baby often can be tiring, especially at night. So it's also important for moms to take care of themselves and get as much rest as possible.
3. Changing the newborn's diaper
Changing your baby's diaper is an important procedure. Some parents use disposable diapers, while others like to use washable cloth diapers. Generally speaking, cloth diapers are more skin-friendly and more economical and environmentally friendly, so we recommend using cloth diapers. But no matter what kind of diaper you use, you need to learn how to do it skillfully. After all, young babies may need about 10 to 12 diaper changes per day.
4. Keep baby warm
Your baby needs to be kept warm, but you need to make sure they don't overheat. A good rule of thumb is to dress your baby in one more outfit than you are currently wearing. At night, you can put your baby in a baby sleeping bag so they can sleep comfortably and warmly.
5. Newborn sleep
You should always put your baby to sleep on their back when they are falling asleep, and you will also need to place them "foot-to-foot" in the crib. For some babies, exercise may help them fall asleep. They may love to be held, or they may doze off while moving in a baby carrier, carrier, or stroller. To help your baby fall asleep, you can choose some of their favorite sleep states to help them fall asleep faster.
