Taking Good Care of Your Baby Will Define His or Her Future

Hello to all my beautiful mothers out there. I am writing this blog for all the new mothers as to how to take care of your newborn kid. I want to share my running experience with all of you.  Like you all, I am also a mother of a 6-month-old baby boy. Being a mother is a blessing from that divine power but at the same time, it’s not that easy. I went through C a-section. When my boy came in my arms I was so emotional and tears started rolling down my eyes. It was the best feeling of my life. Happiness, love, pain, care and responsibility was all going inside my mind. My husband and my mother were a great help in starting days as I was on the bed. Later I consulted my paediatrician as to how should  I take care of my kid. I searched various tips online for child care and trust me it helped me a lot. Apart from this, I took advice from my parent friends and indeed it was a great help too. The first thing which I always take care of is child hygiene. Child hygiene is very important whether its bath, nails, ears, nose, eyes, head, underarms, hip hole or genitals. I always take care of my child ‘s hygiene. I give him a bath every day. The doctor says giving bath to the child every day makes him or her feel fresh and happy. I make sure I clean the outer and inner part of my child’s ear with the help of earbuds dipped in coconut oil. I gently massage my child’s eyebrows and head to make him feel relaxed. As a mother, we should make sure that we give oil massage all over the body and head to our kids. Proper massage make bones stronger. One advice given by my mother is to first give the massage to the baby, after 10 minutes feed the baby, and after feeding give bath to the child. Proper cleaning of genital is very important. Make sure you clean it with lukewarm water or wet wipes after changing diapers. Cleaning is important after each changed diaper. When I clean my child I check underarms, ears, genital part to make sure there is no dirt left inside out. I also choose proper cotton and loose clothes for my child. Loose clothes help the baby’s body to breath and your child remains comfortable and happy. Till 5th month I breastfed my child. In the beginning, I faced problem in breastfeeding but with solid protein and with the help of jaggery, cumin and milk the problem was solved. I ate enough iron and calcium so that I can feed my child properly. After 5th month I started with solids. I breastfeed my child and two times a day I give him solid food like wheat porridge, oats, moong daal water, banana puree, papaya puree etc. I never forget to give water after boiling it. Proper timing of food and water is very important. I make sure one solid in the morning and other at night, apart from solid I keep breastfeeding my child. The next very important things in a child’s growth are proper timely sleep and play. I make sure my child sleeps and plays on time. Proper sleep at night and afternoon is important. As a mother, the most essential thing is to keep interacting with your kid. We as mothers should create that bond with our kid. Interaction with a kid makes the kid wiser and confident. I am doing this every day with love, care and responsibility. I am sure from your end you all are giving and trying best. This particular blog is very simple but very important. I hope all my dear mothers will like and read my blog.
