Care Centre of the New born
Your baby is growing. At this age, a baby only needs breast milk.
Breast-fed babies should usually feed about 10-15 minutes at each breast during each feeding. Breast-fed babies may want to nurse as often as every 2 hours. Babies usually wake up at night to feed. This is normal. If your baby wants to feed more often, try a pacifier (not recommended before the age of 6 weeks). Your baby may need to suck but not feed. It is important to hold your baby during feeding. This is a good time to talk to your baby (Try to have eye contact with your baby)
You may need a certified lactation consultant if you face a problem with breast-feeding
Never switch to formula feeding except after your Lactation consultant suggested that for your baby
Development
Babies usually sleep 16 or more hours a day. Healthy babies should be placed in bed on their backs. Sleeping on the back reduces the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
Most babies will strain to pass bowel movements. As long as the bowel movement is soft, there is no need to worry. Call 2356 if the bowel movements are hard (constipation). Babies usually wet the diaper at least 6 times each day.
