Note these dos and don'ts when it comes to diapers
One thing that you should always carry along with your baby is loads of diapers. These days diapers have become mandatory for babies and a newborn requires 10-15 diapers every day. But there are several dos and don'ts when it comes to these protective cushions that you should keep in mind. But you might not be aware of all those. We help you understand.
Having babies means that you should be alert even when they are sleeping. A major task would be to change their diapers in the middle of their sleep. Frame a routine and change diapers at that time only. If your baby wakes up while you are changing the diaper, immediately put them to sleep. Do not entertain their want to play at that time.
When you see those red splotches on your baby's bottom, it can be quite daunting for you as a new parent, right? Diaper rashes can be a result of skin rubbing against the diaper, infection, or irritants like soap and wipes. But some home remedies such as coconut oil, aloe vera gel, and an oatmeal bath are pretty effective against this condition.
You might be thinking that scented diapers avoid bad odor, but those are also the ones that can cause irritation to your baby's skin. Also, while buying diapers check for the size. That can only be ascertained by the weight range mentioned on the packets of diapers. If the diapers you last bought caused skin rashes, buy new ones that have a different fabric.
-After every use, clean the diaper region with a soft cloth. Let it dry and moisturize the area. Lastly, apply baby talcum powder. This helps your baby feel comfortable with the new diaper. -Sanitize your hands before and after a diaper change. Do not neglect if rashes appear. -Diaper changing for male and female babies varies. Check for dryness and positioning of reproductive organs.
