Environment and care of the umbilical cord
Immediately after circumcision, the end of the penis is usually covered with Vaseline-covered gauze to prevent the wound from sticking to the diaper. After changing the diaper, gently clean the top with warm water and then apply Vaseline to the top so that it does not stick to the diaper. The creaking should turn red or irritating within a few days, but if the redness or swelling increases or the blisters fill with peas, it may become an infection and you should call your child's doctor immediately.
It is also important to take care of the umbilical cord in newborns. Some doctors recommend cleaning the area with denatured alcohol until the cord stump dries and falls off, usually within 10 days to 3 weeks, while others recommend leaving the area alone. Talk to your child's doctor to find out what he or she prefers.
The baby's navel area should not be submerged until the cord stump falls off and the area heals. Until it falls out, the stump changes color from yellow to brown or black - this is normal. Call your doctor if your navel area is red or if you have an unpleasant or loose odor.
Feeding and feeding the baby
Whether you are breastfeeding or bottle feeding, you may be wondering how often this can be done. It is generally recommended to feed babies on demand when they are hungry. Your baby may prevent you from crying, putting your fingers in your mouth, or making a soggy sound.
The newborn should be fed every 2 to 3 hours. If you are breastfeeding, give your baby the opportunity to breastfeed for about 10-15 minutes with each breast. If you are feeding artificial nutrition, your baby will probably eat about 2-3 ounces (60-90 milliliters) each time they are fed.

If your baby tends to speak fluently, has gastroesophageal reflux, or appears nervous during breastfeeding, try grinding after every hour of bottle feeding or every 5 minutes during breastfeeding.
Try these burping tips:
Hold the baby upright with his head on your shoulder. Support your baby's head and back as you gently tug his back with your other hand.
Put your baby on your lap. With one hand, support the baby's chest and head by grasping the baby's chin in the palm of the hand and placing the palms of the hands on the baby's chest (be careful not to touch the baby's chin, not the throat). With the other hand, gently tear off the baby's back.
Put your baby's face on your lap. Support your baby's head, make sure it is higher than his body and gently rub or rub it on his back.
If the baby does not grind after a few minutes, change the baby's position and try grinding for a few more minutes before breastfeeding again. At the end of the feed, constantly grind the baby and then keep him standing for at least 10-15 minutes so that he does not spit.
As a fresh parent, you might be surprised to learn that your newborn, who needs you every minute of the day, sleeps about 16 hours or more!
Newborns usually sleep 2-4 hours. Don't expect your baby's digestive system to sleep through the night - your baby's digestive system is so small that you need to be fed every few hours and wake up if less than 4 hours have elapsed (or more often if your doctor is worried about). weight gain).
When can you expect your baby to sleep through the night? Many babies sleep through the night (between 6 and 8 o'clock) at the age of 3 months, but if not, there's no need to worry. Like adults, infants need to create their own sleep patterns and cycles, so if your newborn is gaining weight and looking healthy, do not despair if he has not slept through the night for 3 month.
It is important that babies fall asleep at all times to reduce the risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). Other safe sleep practices include: not using blankets, quilts, sheepskin, stuffed toys, and pillows in a tag or basket (these can be turned off by the baby); and sharing a bedroom (but not a bed) with parents from the first 6 months to 1 year. Also, be sure to change the baby's head position from night to night (right first, then left, etc.) to avoid a flat spot on one side of the head.
Many children have "mixed" days and nights. At night they tend to be more alert and alert, and during the day they are more sleepy. One way to minimize nocturnal stimulation. Keep lighting low, such as night lights. Put off talking and playing with your baby all day. When your child wakes up during the day, he tries to keep him awake a little longer while he talks and plays.
While you may be worried about managing your newborn, in just a few weeks you will create a routine and train like a pro! If you have any questions or concerns, ask your doctor for resources to help you and your child grow together.
