hope you’re doing good.
When a baby is born there is immense joy in family and most happiest is the new parents. With all the joys and happiness that’s experienced when a baby is born,there is equal worries or concerns for a new-born.
Especially if you’re a first time parents. I also believe that every time a child is born be it be first child or the second a new parents are born too. Every baby may experience some common things that is of a less worry.
Here are the most common things in newborns.
1.newborns always likes to be warm. Keeping babies warm helps them stay healthy and comfortable.
It’s a common thing that we see, a baby shivers when you remove or change clothes. Babies like warmth and thus its said baby loves a mothers warmth.
2.its very common that newborns have white spots in nose or cheeks. The white spots are called milia. It usually appears across the nose, cheeks, chin, forehead.
Milia appears a couple of weeks after birth because the oil glands on your baby’s face are still developing.
3.dry skin in newborns.
One of the other thing that every newborn goes through is the dry skin. Newborns are born covered with various fluids. Baby will begin to shed the outer layer of the skin once the fluids are cleaned from their body.
4.newborns passing sticky or dark stool.
Newborns tend to pass a sticky and dark stools on the first 2 to 3 days. That’s called meconium.
Its is sticky, usually olive-green in color and usually odorless.
I always notice that there is soft voices from babies that’s usually a sneeze. Now that doesn’t mean they’re cold or sick. That’s a way of clearing the nasal and respiratory passages.
6.loosing weight in the first few days
Babies tend to lose weight in the early days of their lives and that is very common in almost all newborns. Babies are born with some extra fluid, so it’s totally normal for a newborn to drop a few ounces when that fluid is lost in the first few days of life.
They regain the weight within a month or less.
7.babies head may have an odd shape.
This is only when a newborn is delivered normally. Babies head is made up of multiple soft, movable and bony plates that allow the head to be molded during the labor so it passes easily through the birth canal.
As time passes by the head is shaped.
8.babies have have sharp nails.
Babies nails are very sharp. Babies nails are softer than us but sharper. Babies tend to end up scratching their own face or yours;). newborns nails grow fast and you may have to cut them several times.
It’s very common a newborn is born with lot of hair on their head. And it’s totally okay if they have less hair or no hair at all. A baby’s hair color tends to change later on.
10. babies cry a lot in the initial days. That is how they communicate. Baby has only 3 things to do at the first month or two. They’ll commonly cry for milk, poop or if they’re sleepy.
Remember they cannot talk so the only way they’re trying to contact you is through crying. They may cry if they’re feeling cold or if they’re getting hurt somewhere or if they’re feeling hot. Every little communication is done through crying.
So have a lot of patience.;)
it seems easy now when am actually writing this. I feel taking care of newborns are better than keeping a toddler busy. But never going to forget those days with a newborn. It’s never an easy task, first days of a newborn.
ALL THE POINTS MENTIONED HERE IS BASED ON MY EXPERIENCES.
That’s it for now
until we meet again
