Baby Care

Baby is taken care of by their parents. Newborns have poor immune power, and it is necessary to wash hands before touching the newborn. It is necessary to support the head and the neck of the newborn. Newborns should not be shaken as it can cause bleeding in the brain. The newborn should be handled with care and safety. A smooth sponge cloth has to be used for bathing the baby. Bathing a baby two to three times a week is good as frequent bathing can cause dryness in babies. It is good to give breastfeeding for newborn babies.
