Many things should be taken into account when you are providing newborn baby girl care. First of all, you should know that your newborn baby girl will probably cry for her milk or breast milk from three months onwards. This can cause inconvenience as you are breastfeeding and you don’t want to disturb the baby. So you should let the baby suckle from the bottle till about six months. But if you are breastfeeding, make sure that you do it at the right time. Here are some tips that you will find useful while feeding the baby with breast milk or formula.
You Will Need More Milk At Night
First of all, you should know that the baby will need more milk at night. This is because the newborn baby girl grows faster than the other babies. Therefore, she needs more milk at night. It is better that you have two feeding times every day. One hour before and after sleep and the other one before you go to bed.
Brushing The Teeth Of The Baby
It becomes difficult to brush the baby’s teeth because the baby’s mouth is very small, and the baby has difficulty opening her mouth wide enough for you to brush properly. So you need to bring a brush and also a soft toothbrush with soft bristles. Then you need to brush the baby’s teeth thoroughly with this brush. Make sure that you take all the food particles out from between her teeth. After brushing, you need to wait for 10 minutes so that the food gets cleaned from between her teeth.
Combing The Hair
You need to comb the little one’s hair. If your baby has long hair, then you also need to comb it. Please use wide-toothed combs for the hair of the baby. These combs will help you find all the hair in between the baby’s toes and in between her fingers. You need to pick up the little one from the house and bring it back to the mother. She will need to comb her hair with the help of this comb while you watch her.
Feed The Baby
The baby’s first feeding will be when she turns around four weeks from her mother’s belly. You will not know what to do as the baby won’t ask you anything. But you need to feed the baby with the help of some breastfeeding powder. It will prevent the spit-ups from happening in the stomach of the baby. Once the spit-ups are gone, the baby will start to get hungry and eat little spoonfuls of food from the spoon.
You Need To Get Some
If the baby has some wetness in her mouth or nose, you need to get some wipes to clean the smell from her mouth. This will prevent the bad smell from the baby’s mouth and the bad breath from her nostrils. Also, it will reduce the coughing of the baby. Now, this newborn baby care guide is mostly about the care of the mother’s pre-birth care and the baby’s care once she comes into the world.
Get Some Clothes
The newborn baby will need a lot of clothes. She will keep on moving around from one place to another, and thus, you need to make sure that the baby is dressed accordingly for every place she moves around. While buying the clothes for your little one, you need to make sure that they are soft and easy to put on. These days, there are so many clothes available in the market made of good quality materials. You can buy them and also wash them and re-wear them as and when necessary.
Get Some Sleep
The newborn baby will need more sleep than other babies. As a result, you need to take care of her and ensure that she gets enough sleep. At times, she may start sleeping at eight or nine in the night, and thus, you need to check out your little one’s sleeping patterns. Ensure that the baby is comfortable in the crib and then take her to the nursery after dinner or six o’clock in the evening. Once she is settled in there, feed her properly, and monitor her breathing pattern as well.
