When it comes to newborn care, it’s important to realize that we have three major stages of development: newborn stage, infant stage, and toddler stage.

However, it doesn’t mean that every child will be fine throughout all stages. To ensure that your baby’s life will be as healthy as possible, the following is a list of newborn care basics to keep in mind at each stage:
– Wash your baby’s skin regularly and gently. This doesn’t only include washing your baby with soap but also rinsing him/her off with cold water to make sure all bacteria is removed from his/her skin. Remember to wash a baby gently before using products such as baby oil or baby shampoo. You may also use baby shampoo or baby soap to gently cleanse your baby’s hair or skin. If you have the baby’s diaper still on, then you need not do anything else to remove it, but don’t forget to dry the diaper.
Care About Baby Food
– Make sure that your baby doesn’t get any food and liquids that may lead to diarrhea. Make sure that the baby drinks as much as he/she can until his/her stomach feels full and you can remove any droppings.
– Clean the area that your baby sleeps, including the crib. Do not let a baby sleep close to the floor. As soon as you notice any signs of drooling, give him/her some sugar water or a bottle of juice. – The baby may also suck his/her thumb to help digest the food, which may cause some unnecessary diarrhea.
– It’s important to brush your newborn baby often, especially his or her teeth, as it helps prevent any bacteria and infections from growing. – Avoid applying toothpaste to the teeth, as toothpaste can also be abrasive and can cause teeth problems.
Feeding Your Baby
– Feeding your baby is very important. Make sure that you are able to feed your baby when he/she needs it, not when you want him/her. When your baby is older, the more familiar he/she becomes to you and the environment, the more it will feel like you’re the parent and not the baby, so it’s important to feed him/her when the time is right.

So make sure that you keep an eye on his/her feeding time. – If you notice that your baby seems to be hungry at an unexpected time, just make sure that you try to provide it for him/her, as this will make it easier for you to get them food when you’re not around.
– Don’t hesitate to help out when needed: A mother’s love for her child is amazing and it can come in handy when you feel the need to give the baby something in case of emergencies, or if you think that your baby may have something stuck to his/her skin. – You may also be surprised at how much your baby will respond to you if you have a ready supply of milk available in case he/she decides to try to nurse himself/herself.
