How to Take Care of a Newborn Baby
Preparation Before Birth
From my own experience, it is better to be prepared as much as you can to take care of your infant before
Delivery his prior preparation will help you to make life easier with your newborn in the first few weeks which will be chaotic.
Here are a few basic preparations which you’ll need:
- Find a good feeding specialist or lactation consultant who can help you with breastfeeding or bottle feeding.
- Take training in basic infant care such as feeding, handling, bathing, soothing and so on.
- Talk to the experienced mother.
- Make ready necessary things for your infant, like-soft cotton cloths, diaper, mild baby soap & shampoo, olive oil or almond oil, baby dress, money, support, car set, and car stroller.
- Cook and freeze up meals for the next few weeks which I did. I became tension free about food.
- Stock up other necessities for the home.
Source of Help after the Birth
Getting help is very important at this time. You’ll get help from the hospital, family members, relatives, and friends. While in the hospital, talks to the experts who will help and give you the necessary suggestions. Nurses are also a great resource for help. They will show you how to feed, burp, hold, change and care for your newborn.
While in the home, it’s great to hire a nurse for your infant care. You can also get help from your family members, friends who are experienced or alert about their doing. At this time, some relatives also often want to help. But if you don’t want any visitors, place restrictions without any hesitation. This is not the time to be socialized. Just do what is better for your infant.
Handling of Your Newborn
You are going to handle your delicate little bundle of joy. So, be careful about suggestions are given below:
- Clean your hands before holding your infant. Germs can easily attack the newborn because of their weak immune system.
- Don’t be hesitated to tell visitors for washing their hands and using antibacterial hand rub before holding your newborn. Besides, ensure everybody’s clean & germ-free handling of your baby.
- Carefully support your newborn’s head & neck as well as body with your hands when carrying him up the night or lay down. Cradle the head & neck when carrying your baby that will make it easier for you to handle him because newborn babies’ necks are very floppy.
- Keep your newborn’s head in your inner elbow and the length of her body will rest on your forearm. Her cuter hip and upper legs should rest on your hand and her inner arm should rest over her chest and abdomen. Give your all attention to your baby, hold her affectionately and feel heavenly pleasure.
- Never shake your infant whether you’re playing or angry. It may cause bleeding in the brain and even death. If it is needed to wake your infant to feed or others just tickle her feet or another gentle touch instead of shaking. Never throw your newborn in the air or being jiggled in the knee which is very dangerous for her.
- Ensure that your baby is fastened carefully into the car seat, stroller or carrier.
- Don’t give your newborn to an age-old baby. If it happens, make him sit down with a knowing adult for your baby’s safety.
Bonding & Soothing
When I took my newborn in my lap for the first time, I just forget all pains & tears of happiness came into my eyes. Bonding is one of the delightful parts of infant care which contributes to babies’ physical and emotional growth.
Above all, they feel secure. Actually, bonding begins when you lap your newborn for the first time. Bonding can develop the emotional relationship between babies and parents which is very important for babies’ overall development. You can improve bonding with your infant and soothe your newborn following the given tips-
- Cradle your baby gently and give her a skin-to-skin touch while feeding or cradling.
- Play with your newborn to remove her boredom of your newborn because they can also be bored like us. But remember, your baby is not ready for rough play, just play gently showing some safe toys or other gentle activities.
- Talk to your infant, because babies love vocal sounds.
- Rock gently and sing or recite rhymes for your infant.
- Cradle your infant, walk slowly and sing a soft gentle song in a lower voice. Babies like this type of bonding and soothing very.
- Try to involve your family members while playing with your infant.
- Hang or put some colorful toys or pictures in the room where your baby can span most of her time.
- A gentle infant manage can enhance bonding and help to grow and develop your infant.
- Try to go for a walk in the Park or any suitable place once a day. Gradually you can see that your infant likes this outing most which contributes to his growth & development.
- Some babies are sensitive to sound, light, touch, cry easily, sleep less than expected, turn their faces away from unknown ones. If your baby is such type of sensitive or moderate then to adapt your infant with the environment, keep light & noise levels low, silent your mobile phone.
Soothing Your Crying Newborn
Babies cry to express their feelings for all sorts of reasons. In the first few weeks, you may not understand exactly what your newborn is upset. So you can apply some tricks to soothe your fussy baby.
- Check your infant’s diaper if it is dirty or wet, change diaper or cloths which gives her an irritating feeling.
- Try to feed her or burp her.
- Swaddle your newborn to create a womb-like feeling. Or, remove a layer of clothing if it’s hot or adds a layer of clothing if it’s cold.
- To soothe your fussy baby, you can also apply swinging and shushing which are very effective.
- Hold your baby in your arms and talk to her in a soft voice. Your soft voice & touch can soothe your infant too.
- Allow your baby to suck her fingers if the wants because it is a natural soothing process and they like their freedom.
- Sometimes babies cry to sleep. So, help your infant to sleep by cradling and slow walking, you know your sweet singing is free with it!!
- Sometimes babies cry because of colic. When everything is useless what you do to soothe your newborn, tears may come into your eyes. But don’t be nervous. Be patient and contact your doctor.
Though the first few weeks are chaotic to handle your newborn,
You’ll learn by nature what’s wrong with your newborn & what you should do because you are a mother.
From my own experience, newborns cry a lot at night until they fall in sleep from 3\4 weeks to 8 weeks. It normally begins after the falling off their umbilical cord. It happened to my two kids. I was very upset during my first baby and I call my doctor. My doctor told me that am its normal for a newborn and everything would be fine after a few days.
At the time of my 2nd baby, I faced the same matter\problem. The problem recovered when my baby reached at 3 months.
Actually, it is a transitional period for a newborn from the spiritual world to the material world. If you observe after the birth of your newborn, you will notice that your newborn laughs with someone special maybe with an angel but not with you, at least till 2 months.
Then, your infant will begin to respond to you & laugh with you. So don’t be upset. Just take care of your newborn and enjoy the moment because this moment will fly very quickly. But if notice any abnormality, call your doctor.
Swaddling means wrapping newborns in warm clothes to keep her warm that she felt in the womb. It is the first and most important care of newborns. It works well to soothe newborns in the first few weeks and helps to adapt to the environment of the world.
Swaddling creates a womb-like warm feeling which helps infants settle down faster and sleep longer avoiding startle reflex. Besides, it gives newborns a sense of security & comfort.
Good swaddling keeps a baby’s arms close to the body and allows for some movement of the legs. Well, swaddling not only keeps newborns bodies warm but also gives a sense of safety.
Here are the instructions to swaddle your newborn properly:
- Spread out the blanket or warm cloth and slightly fold it over one corner.
- Lay down the baby on the blanket placing her head above the folded corner.
- Keep her hands on her chest or beside her body.
- Bring the left part of the blanket and wrap it over your infant’s body by tucking it beneath the back of the baby which will go through under the right
- Now, bring the bottom part of the blanket up over the baby’s feet and pull it toward the face, then, carefully folding the blanket down to avoid getting close to the face.
- Swaddle slightly loose around the hip and keens which allow some movement of legs of your newborn.
- Finally, bring the right part of the blanket, warp your infant’s body and tuck it under the baby’s back of left side. Only neck and head remain visible.
- Don’t swaddle your infant too tightly which causes uncomfortable breathing.
- Besides, ensure that swaddling is not so loose which can vain the purpose of swaddling.
However, you should swaddle your baby properly, otherwise swaddling will not fulfill the requirement.
Diaper Your Newborn
It is better to decide before delivery whether you’ll use cloths or disposable diapers. To care for your newborn properly, you’ll have to be an expert to change diaper fast. You should be prepared to change the dirty or wet diaper of your infant about 10 times a day.
Before diapering, your baby, keep all supplies ready within your reach for convenient.
- A clean diaper.
- Fasteners (if you use cloth diaper)
- Diaper ointment (for rashes)
- Diaper wipes (or a container of warm water and a clean washcloth or cotton balls).
What you have to do are given below
- If the diaper is wet or dirty, gently lay your infant on his or her back and remove the dirty diaper.
- Gently wipe your baby’s genital area to clean using warm water and washcloth or diaper wipes.
- Remove a boy’s diaper carefully because exposure to the air may make him urinate. Wipe a girl’s bottom gently from front to back to avoid urinary tract infection (U T I).
- Always clean your hands thoroughly after changing an Open the new diaper and make your baby wear gently. Now, pant diapers are available in the supermarket which is easy to use and also secured.
- A diaper rash is a common concern. To avoid or heal diaper rash, change your baby’s dirty diaper
as soon as possible.
- Wipe with warm water and soap.
- Use some ointment at the rash.
- Keep your baby diaper-free for a few hours which gives the skin a chance to air
- If you use cloth diapers, wash them by using fragrance-free & dye detergents and savlon.
“Good Morning,” say to your newborn and start a new day with her. Morning care is not necessary for the first week. But from the second week, you can take care of your newborn to get her freshness like –
- Take a washcloth and wet it with Luke warm water and squeeze it.
- Gently wipe your newborn’s face.

Give a Massage
A gentle massage can give your infant relaxation and ease her gassy belly or tummy troubles, boost her muscle development and growth. Touch is one of the five senses which your baby gets properly through gentle massage. Touching creates a nice bonding between you and your newborn.
Well, a gentle massage works magically and the magic is in your tender touch. You can begin to give your newborn a gentle massage every day from the day you bring your newborn home from the hospital.
Massage oil is not needed to massage your infant. But if your hands glide smoothly and easily over your baby’s body, it will be more pleasant for both of you. If you want to use massage oil, choose mild, unscented oil. Olive oil, coconut, apricot, or avocado oils one good option. When massaging your baby you can sing a lullaby to make the moment delightful.
Here are some infant massage tips

Or, you can hold your newborn in an upright position on your chest to massage her back.
Circumcision means cutting off the foreskin of a boy for religious or medical reasons. After circumcision, the penis tip is covered with gauze coated\warped with petroleum jelly to avoid sticking the rounded tip to the diaper. You should care about your baby’s penis tip carefully like:
- Wipe gently the penis tip with warm water, after changing the diaper.
- Apply petroleum jelly to the penis tip so that it doesn’t attach to the diaper.
- The penis tip area normally heals within a few days, but if you notice the redness or swelling increases or pus-filled blisters form, then, you should call your baby’s doctor immediately.
Umbilical Cord Care
Your newborn’s umbilical cord care is very important. Umbilical cord stump should fall off on its own within the first 2\3 weeks. It will change in color from yellow to brown or black until it dries up and falls off.
It is normal to see a bit of dried blood or crust near the stump. To avoid infection, you should properly care your newborn’s umbilical cord until it falls off.
Here’s what you should do
- Clean your hands properly before handling your newborn’s umbilical cord stump.
- Keep the umbilical cord clean. Clean it by wiping with a warmly wet clean cotton cloth and dry it with a clean and absorbent cloth.
- Keep the area free to air so that it dries out. To keep the area free or uncover, keep the front of your baby’s diaper folded down.
- Give your newborn sponge bath until the cord stump falls off and heals the area.
- Don’t pull the stump off. Let it fall off on its own.
- Call your baby’s doctor immediately, if the stump looks red or produces yellowish pus, odor or bleeding.
Bathing of Your Newborn
You should give your newborn a sponge bath carefully until the umbilical cord falls off and the navel area heals 1-4 weeks and the circumcision heals (1-2) weeks. You can give your baby a real bath or tub bath regularly when the umbilical cord falls off. It is better to give bath two or three times a week in the first year.
Gather these items before bathing your baby
- Warm water.
- A soft, clean washcloth
- Mild and unscented baby soap& shampoo.
- A soft brush for baby’s scalp.
- A clean diaper
- Clean baby dress.
To give your newborn a sponge bath select a safe, plain place (like a changing table, floor) in a warm room. Fill a bowl with warm water. Here is what you should do:
- Undress your baby and wrap her in a towel.
- Wet a washcloth with warm water only and gently wipe your baby’s eyes. Start with one eye to wipe from the inner corner to the outer corner. Do the same to the other eye using a clean corner of the washcloth. Wipe your baby’s nose and ears with a wet washcloth.
- Use a little soap by the wet washcloth and gently wash her face by wiping with a warmly wetted washcloth. And dry it with an absorbent washcloth.
- Then, use baby shampoo, create a lather, gently wash your baby’s head and rinse off.
- Next, use a little soap with a wet washcloth and gently wash the rest of the body, including underarms, around the neck, behind the ears and in the genital area by wiping with a warm wet washcloth.
- Dry the entire body properly and then diaper and dress your newborn.
The first bath should be brief and gentle. But if your infant doesn’t feel comfortable with a tub bath, go back to a sponge bath for a few days, and then try the bath again.
What should you do are given below:
- Fill a baby tub or big plastic bowl with 2-3 inches of warm water and check the temperature of the warm water before you begin the bath.
- Try to involve your partner or family member during bathing. In this way, one person can hold the baby in the water and other people can bathe the baby.
- Speak gently & undress your baby to place her in the warm water, in a warm room to avoid catching a cold. Support her head and neck as well as the entire body to lower her up to the chest into the tub water.
- Use a little soap by a washcloth for her face and shampoo for her hair. Gently massage your baby’s scalp with your fingertips or a soft baby hairbrush. Then, wash her face and hair gently to avoid the soap getting into the eyes.
- To clean the rest of the body including underarms, neck, and genitals, use a little soap and a washcloth. Then gently wash the entire body with warm water.
- At last, pour warm water gently over your baby’s body to avoid getting cold. Hold the baby carefully by supporting the head & neck and lift her out of the tub.
- Warp your baby in a hooded towel and pat her dry. Then, diaper and dress your baby. Finally, take your baby on your lap and kiss her.
- While bathing, be careful because a baby can drown in less than an inch of water.
Breastfeeding Your Newborn
You should decide whether you feed your newborn by breast or bottle. If you decide to Brest feed your newborn, it is a blessing for your baby. Because Brest milk has many health benefits, including strengthening your baby’s immunity, brain development.
Here are some tips you should know about Brest feeding your newborn:
- You should Breastfeed your newborn as soon as possible within an hour after her birth.
- A newborn baby needs to be fed every 2 or 3 hours or whenever she shows signs of hungriness like crying or sucking fingers. To make breastfeeding active, a good latch is very important. To get a good latch, carefully hold your newborn facing toward your breast. Then, touch her upper lip with your nipple. When she opens her mouth widely push your nipple into her mouth, her mouth should cover the nipple. Keep hold of your Breast like “C”.
- During breastfeeding, hold your breast with lightly press to control the overflowing of breast milk which your newborn may not suck because she is too young to suck overflowing breast milk.
- Give your baby to suck your every breast about 10-15 minutes.
- Use a heating pad or a warmly wetted washcloth on your breast or pump breast with a breast pump, when you feel pain, blocked ducts and heavy breast which generally feels when breasts begin to produce milk after 2\3 days of delivery.
- Your newborn baby is getting enough food, if she seems satisfied, sleep well, produces about 6-8 diapers, several stools and is gaining weight regularly, normal movement of hands & legs.
- Another easy way to tell that your baby is getting enough breast milk if your breast feels full before feeding your baby and less full after feeding.
- It is better to breastfeed your newborn by sitting. So, ensure your back support to sit in a suitable place when you’re feeding, because it can take up to 30-40 minutes.
- You should maintain a healthy and well-balanced diet; drink at least 3 liters of pure drinking water for your baby’s sake. Limit or avoid (if possible) your use of alcohol or caffeine because it will hamper your baby by entering your breast milk.
- If your baby is ill, you should breastfeed her, again and again, more than a regular feeding schedule.
- Call your baby’s doctor, if your baby doesn’t want to suck or eat or if your baby is not gaining weight regularly or if you are worried about baby’s growth and development.
Formula Feeding Your Newborn
If you want to formula feed your newborns then you have no restriction about your own diet. You can easily know if your newborn is getting enough food when you are formula feeding.
Here is something you need to know about formula feeding your newborn:
- Follow the directions on the label of the formula when you prepare it for your newborn.
- Sterilize new bottles to feed.
- Your baby needs to be fed every 2 or3 hours or whenever she seems hungry.
- At each feeding, your baby will take about2-3 ounces (60-90 milliliters).
- Discard any formula that is left unfinished by your baby or kept out of the fridge for more than one hour.
- Store formula feeds in the fridge only 24 hours. Warm the formula feed carefully because babies like to eat in this way. But it is unnecessary.
- To formula feed, take your baby in your lap and support her head and neck. Then tilt
the bottle like the nipple and feed slowly.
Burping Your Newborn
Babies often take air during feeding, which can make them feel uneasy and even lead to colic. To check this, know the best burping ways and burp your baby regularly which will make her easy and bring comfort.
If you formula feed, try to burp your baby after every 2-3 hours (60-90 milliliters) and if you breastfeed, each time after feeding.
If your baby has a gassy belly, gastroesophageal reflex, try to burp your baby after every ounce when formula feeding or after 5 minutes when breastfeeding.
Here are Some Burping Tips
- Hold your baby upright on your shoulder supporting her head and neck with your one hand. Then gently pat your baby’s back with your other hand. This upright position to burp works most effectively which I apply for my baby.
- Lay your baby face down on your lap, support her head & neck and keep head higher than her chest. Then, gently pat or rub her back.
Try any one position to burp your baby. If she doesn’t burp after a few minutes, try another position to burp before feeding again. To avoid troubles and spitting up, always burp your baby and keep her in an upright position for at least 10-15 minutes after feeding.
Sleeping of Your Newborn
A newborn sleeps up to 16 hours a day because she needs to get plenty of rest for growth and development. In the beginning, your newborn may sleep for 2-4 hours at a time. But if she hasn’t been fed for 4 hours, she should be awakened because babies’ digestive system is very small and need nourishment every few hours.
At the age of 3 months, your baby may sleep for 6-8 hours at a time. But if she doesn’t sleep through the night, don’t worry. Babies must develop their own sleep patterns like adults. So, if your newborn is healthy, satisfied and gaining weight, then everything is okay.
Here is something you should know about sleeping your newborn:
- Ensure your baby sleep on his back to reduce the risk of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome).
- Keep blankets, quilts, pillows (which can suffocate a baby) away from your baby’s mouth and nose.
It is better to dress your baby properly to avoid such coverings.
- You should change\ alternate the position of your baby’s head from night to night (first left, then right and so on ) to remove the flat spot which can appear on one side of the head.
- Some newborns have days and nights confusion. They sleep more at day and remain alert & awake at night. If your baby is more alert at night, limit nighttime stimulation by keeping the lights low and you’re talking low. Keep her busy with talking &playing during the daytime when she awakes. Be patient until your baby begins a normal sleeping pattern.
You should give your baby “tummy time” every day. As your baby spends much of its time by laying on her back, you should give her time to stay on her tummy which is very important for her physical & mental development.
It also strengthens her arms, head, and neck. Some doctors suggest that babies should get tummy time for 15-20 minutes a day and others suggest to babies for 5 minutes during parts of the day as they develop.
- You can give your newborn tummy time after2\3 weeks of her birth when the umbilical cord falls off.
- For delightful tummy time, get level yourself with your baby. Make eye contact, talk and play with your baby.
- Some babies don’t allow tummy time because it is hard work. If it happens and if your baby doesn’t like tummy time, take it easy and carry on because she will be habituated with it by the time.
Visit your Baby’s Doctor Regularly
It is very important to take your newborn to the doctor regularly. It helps to check up that your newborn is growing and developing normally and getting the necessary care. During the first year of your baby, she should get a doctor’s check-up at least two weeks to a month after birth. Besides, if you notice, anything abnormal, then, take your baby to the doctor immediately.
Here are some symptoms for which you should visit your baby’s doctor

Take Preparation to Take Your Newborn on a Car Ride
Before the birth of your newborn, you should take preparation to take her or can ride to go from hospital to home. For your baby’s safety, you’ll need to get a car seat and ensure that it is safe, secure and suitable \appropriate for your newborn.
You can also use a travel system stroller which\that is a bundle of the car seat with a baby stroller. By this, you will get 2 in 1. You can use it as a can seat in the car and as a stroller when you are traveling or walk with your baby. You should re-check your baby is secure and appropriately fits in the car seat before riding.
Take Care of Yourself
As a mother now, your only goal is how to take care of your baby. But at the same time, you should also take care of yourself during pregnancy and after delivery, because you have to remain fit to perform as the best caretaker of your little one.
- Take bath regularly, comb your hair use cream or body lotion on face and get fresh.
- Maintain a healthy balanced diet. Drink pure drinking water at least 3 liters per day.
- Sleep as much as you can. It is better to sleep for you when your baby sleeps.
- Forget about housework for the first couple of months and be confident in yourself. Get help, it’s the time in your life when you’ll be able to get help from everyone around.
- Take some simple exercise during pregnancy and after your childbirth. Walking is a good option during this time. Walk for 20 minutes in the open air which makes you refresh.
- Involve your husband to take care of your baby while you can spend a free time taking rest or something else which will recharge you enough.
Outing with Baby
After taking your newborn at home from the hospital, you may think that you are confined in the home to take care of your newborn, lose freedom or have no connection with the outer world. These thinking may frustrate you.
So, sometimes go for an outing with your baby and husband or any other family members. Because during this time outing is very effective for both of you. The changing environment & fresh air will improve your baby’s mood and refresh you mentally. This refreshment will help you to spend your days easily & confidently with your baby.
- Pack the diaper bag and other necessary things with you.
- Carry your baby with a suitable carrier which is fit and comfortable for her.
- If the weather is rough, change the plan of an outing or place your baby appropriately into her car seat and take a drive.
Feel& Enjoy the Moment
The first few weeks with your baby are chaotic. But you’ll forget all the pain & chaotic situations you have faced when you’ll be rewarded with your baby’s first smile. So, relax, feel and enjoy every cry and every movement because your newborn grows up so fast. Take the photos of special moments.
It is normal that you may feel worried to handle a newborn. But within a few weeks, you’ll know your baby and can handle your little one like an experienced parent. After all, you are a mother of a baby which will bring an especial bundle of joy& happiness in your life.
