Baby Care

Practical tips for baby care


1. Flatulence

Do more passive exhaust exercises, and use stroking oil to avoid friction and damage to the baby’s skin. I rubbed my stomach clockwise an hour after I finished feeding. When Yueyue was two months old, he was always crying on the hour. I rubbed his stomach regularly and did exhaust exercises three times a day, so he could sleep peacefully.

2. Baby Jaundice

The more and more premature the baby was, the doctor said that the jaundice was high when he was discharged from the hospital for half a month, and he had to continue to take blue light. I insisted on being discharged from the hospital. Jaundice went away. The more physiological jaundice, if it is pathological jaundice, you should pay attention to the doctor’s advice.

3. Colic

The solution to colic is a bit like flatulence. In addition to exhausting exercises and rubbing your stomach, you should pay attention to keeping your belly warm. You can hold a plane and squat with carrots.

4. Nasal congestion

If it is a slight nasal congestion, cover the nose with a hot towel, so that the hot air smokes the nasal cavity. Or put a little bit of breast milk in the nasal cavity, and the booger will sneeze out. The more and more the nose is blocked, and there is a lot of booger, I took him to the hospital to have an ear, nose and throat check. The doctor said that it was adenoid hypertrophy. It took six times of negative pressure nose suction, and the doctor who sprayed it prescribed it. Medicine, now my nose is completely healed. That medicine is quite effective, after spraying for a while all the booger came out.

5. About spitting up

Spitting up is divided into physiological and pathological. Physiological spit up is not much, and sometimes hiccups will overflow a little. The most common manifestation of pathology is a large amount of spit up, the most common is a cold, and the cold will not spit up. The more the nose is blocked, the more severe the spit up. After his nose was healed, the spitting up was also healed.

How to prevent spitting up?

For infants who spit up frequently, the position after feeding should be lying on a mattress with a 15-30 degree slope (not just raising the head) and lying on the side for ten minutes before holding it upright and burping, so that it is not easy to spit up.

6. Fever

Physical cooling can be used below 38.5 degrees. It is not recommended to use alcohol or ice packs to cool down. On the premise of drinking more water, appropriately reducing clothing and bathing or wiping with warm water are all good methods. The baby’s diet is based on relatively nutritious liquid food. Antipyretics are required for temperatures above 38 degrees.

Attention please! ! !

Babies under six months should not use antipyretics without authorization! !

7. The correct posture for the baby to burp:

① Hold the baby upright on your shoulders, clasp the baby with the strength of your hands and body, and then pat the baby’s upper back with a hollow palm.

②Let the baby sit on your lap with one hand between the baby’s head and chin, and pat the baby’s upper back with the other hand.

8. About the use of wet wipes

Minimize the use of wet wipes to wipe your baby’s hands. Many wet wipes on the market now contain disinfectants such as detergents. After wiping your child’s hands with such wipes, solid particles of the disinfectant remain on the child’s hands. When the child sucks the finger, the disinfectant particles dissolve in the child’s saliva and enter the gastrointestinal tract. To develop a good habit of washing your baby’s hands frequently, wash hands with water.

Try to use warm water to wash your baby’s butt. Every time you change your baby’s diaper, you should use warm water to wash your butt to avoid red buttocks.

9. Hiccup

The baby hiccups is because the diaphragm is not well developed, you can give a few mouthfuls of breast milk to relieve it or drink some water. Baby hiccups are not as uncomfortable as adults.

10. Feeding

Feeding on demand means feeding your baby when he feels hungry and wants to eat. Usually newborns are fed every two hours, or at least 8 to 12 times a day. The more I got into the habit of taking milk every three hours in the hospital, and when I went home, I basically would eat when I was hungry.

11. Contact with people

If the child is not full moon, it is best not to let too many people come into contact, especially the elderly and children. The sick children who are not full moon are basically infected by adults.

12. Take a bath

As long as the conditions allow, the baby should maintain hygiene and take a bath in time. Thick grease on the body will affect the growth and development and easily get wet. The more I took a bath every other day, the fat was too thick before I was born, and it grew again after a few days of washing. Now it’s four months and it’s still growing, and I swim once a week!
