Newborn Care


The basic advice after delivery is to concentrate on breast feeding. It should be exclusive breast feeding, given on demand without restriction. If your full term newborn sleeps for more than 4 hours, you should wake him/her for feeding.

 

Another important advice is to watch for neonatal jaundice i.e. the yellowish discoloration of the skin and eyes of your child. This happens normally in 50% of newborns. However, when it does happen it is wise to measure the level of the jaundice (bilirubin level) to make sure it is within the physiologic levels and follow it if necessary. To help reducing the level of the jaundice or to prevent it even, we advice frequent breast feeds + exposure of the baby to the sun in the early morning or late afternoon.
