Getting help after giving birth
baby health tips

Consider getting help during this time, which can be very hectic and overwhelming. While in the hospital, talk to the experts around you. Many hospitals have lactation specialists or lactation consultants who can help you start breastfeeding or bottle feeding. Nurses are also a great resource to show you how to care for, skip, change, and care for your child.

For home help, you may want to hire a nurse, postpartum double, or neighborhood teen responsible for helping you for a short time after birth. Your doctor or hospital can help you find information about internal help and may refer you to home health agencies.

Relatives and friends often want to help. Even if you do not agree with certain things, do not reject their experience. However, if you do not feel at guests' disposal or have other concerns, do not feel guilty about placing restrictions on visitors.

Manipulation of a newborn

If you haven't spent much time around newborns, their fragility can be intimidating. Here are some basic elements to remember:

    Wash hands (or use a handwash) before handling the child. Newborns do not yet have a strong immune system, so they are at risk of infection. Make sure everyone who cares about your child has clean hands.
    Support the child's head and neck. Wear it on your head when you are carrying the child and support it when you are wearing it or when you are laying your child.
    Never shake the newborn, whether it's playing or frustrating. Shaking can cause bleeding in the brain and even death. If you need to wake your baby, do not shake - instead, gag the baby's legs or gently blow on the cheek.
    Make sure your baby is securely fastened to the carrier, stroller, or car seat. Limit any activity that might be too harsh or jumping.
    Remember that your newborn is not ready for tough play, such as being hurt on the knees or blowing up.


Bonding and calming

Bonding, probably one of the most enjoyable parts of baby care, occurs during sensitive times in the first hours and days after birth, when parents make a deep connection with their child. Physical approach can promote an emotional connection.

For infants, attachment contributes to their emotional growth, which also affects their development in other areas, such as physical growth. Another way to think about bonding is to "fall in love" with your child. Children thrive on having a parent or other adult in their life who loves them unconditionally.

Start bonding through the baby bonding and gently stroking it in different patterns. Both you and your partner can also take the opportunity to be "skin on skin," holding your newborn against your own skin while feeding or cradling.
Babies, especially premature babies and those with medical problems, can respond to baby's massage. Certain types of massage can improve bonding and can help the baby grow and grow. Many books and videos cover baby massage - ask your doctor for advice. Be careful though, babies are not as strong as adults, so massage your baby gently.

Babies usually love vocal sounds, such as speech, mockery, singing and companionship. Your baby will also enjoy listening to music. Children's bells and musical furniture are other good ways to stimulate the child's hearing. If your little one is tormented, try to sing, recite nursery rhymes and poems, or read aloud as you spin or swing the child gently on a chair.

Some babies may be unusually sensitive to touch, light or sound and may start to cry easily, sleep less than expected, or turn their face when someone is talking or singing to them. If this is the case with your child, keep the noise and light level down to moderate.

Swaddling, which works well for some babies in the first few weeks, is another reassuring technique for the first time when parents should learn. A proper balance holds the arms of a child close to the body, while allowing a movement of the legs. Not only does the swamp keep a warm baby, but it seems to give most newborns a sense of safety and comfort. Bloating can also help limit the start reflex, which can awaken a child.
