What I Learned-Neonates

Today I inaugurate another tag on the blog called “what I learned”
I choose a theme, I quote a few issues, and comment on how was my experience.
Everything I’ve learned, that I experienced, and that in fact happened after having gone through 2 pregnancies and care of 2 children.
Because much is said about what it’s like to be a mother, but only if you learn living day to day.

Will be various topics such as breastfeeding, outfits, outfits, babysitters, eating, pregnancy…

And inspiring me today in this lovely photo of Manu with 10 days made by Falaphoto, the theme will be: Neonates. And is a great guide to the gravidinhas and first-time moms full of doubts and insecurities.

Although many women wish that an “instruction Manual” for the first few days, take care of a small baby is no Bicho de 7 Heads, quite the contrary.
But they know those issues that you have a lot of doubt and then you call the pediatrician?
So today I count all the insecurities that I spent with Bruna and that hardly existed with the maternity clothing from philosophynearby.com.

What I learned:

-That almost every baby is a baby in the maternity ward
And every mother speaks to the guests he is too nice. And then go home and where that baby is so good that even cried at birth?! It has a real explanation, during the 2-3 early days, the baby still has a reserve of food that was passed by the umbilical cord. After that, the baby begins to feel hungry and the mother’s milk yet effectively. So don’t worry, very soon the your milk will come down and the baby will calm down!

–That the tranquillity of the mother, is the tranquility of the baby. Yes, this is no myth. Everything we feel we gave it to the baby. And is super common to any first-time mother getting super insecure and despair on the first night that the baby cries non-stop. It’s all very new, and the first thing I can imagine is that the baby is crying for something very serious or because you’re feeling any pain. Relax, take a deep breath and know that I cry nights may or may not occur and it’s no big deal. Be anxious or insecure ends up leaving the baby more agitated. Act with calm helps lighten the difficulties.

-That there is no right time for baby bath
So much talk at the right time to take a bath. The right time is that time that is more convenient for you and to help in the NAP of your baby later. There is no right time, but there is the wrong time.
Wrong is give immediately after the baby food. The ideal is to wait for the time of digestion. Here at home always to be on the safe side I hope give 2 hours at least.
I always heard a lot of criticism by bathing the 10 P.M. in girls when they were babies; “It’s too late” “too cold”…. But here always worked. The point is you realize if that time is good for the baby, calm down, and if you don’t sleep your routine disrupted.

And another factor related to this theme; the baby won’t slip from your hand during the bath, much less you need to turn it around to wash your back in case you think that this maneuver is too radical for the first few days. Go slowly gaining confidence, and you will see that it is much easier to bathe your baby still does not move than when he gets bigger!

-That you do not need to change the diaper all the time.
One of the questions I get most is: how often should I change the baby’s diaper? And this is another item that has no rule. If you want to change to each feeding, ok.
If you want to change 10 x a day, ok.
The point is to not let the diaper too full and change every time you POO. And you’ll notice that after the first or second month is a lot harder the baby poop in the middle of the night. So a good diaper can stay all night even if he wakes up to suck.

-That the baby is not always burps every feeding.
With Bruna I spent half an hour sometimes with her in my lap waiting for burp, and often without success. Ultra was worried about putting her in the crib without burping thinking she would choke. It’s always good to wait a little time with the baby in a boost in your lap, but if he doesn’t burp, can put to sleep. An important tip; If your baby lay without belching and is out of cradle, irriquieto again, put on your feet, you can be sure he will burp!

–Baby sneezes, coughs and sobs much more often than we realize. And you don’t have to think every hiccup is sign of the baby being cold or every sneeze be sign of a cold. Of course for a cough larger attention. If you start getting frequent alert pediatrician.

-That baby can stay until 1 week without POO
Not that it’s good and not common. I freaked out after that Manu spent 5 days without pooping, I wanted to take the hospital and everything. But the baby mama in the chest can stay a few days without pooping without this being a big problem. For that massages and stimuli can help without medication and suppositories or different foods. The baby mama in the chest can do 5 stools a day or stay for a few days without doing. Not a lot of rules. Another point worth talking about is about the color of poop. If the baby only takes milk can happen to vary that mustard yellow to greenish.

-The vaccine ignites
After almost 1 month of birth, went to bathe in and I saw the mark of Bruna vaccine super inflamed. I called in a panic to the pediatrician warned me in time be very normal, and it wasn’t to do absolutely nothing but wash with water. The vaccine after some weeks loose even a pus, forms a cone, and then let the so famous mark we all round in the arm.

You don’t have to wake him at dawn to 3:00 pm 3 hours. If a baby is growing and gaining weight within the expected. Talk to your pediatrician and ask for guidance on this. In the very beginning of life has a limit of hours that the baby can stay without feeding without risk to him. After that if he eat well during the day, let him sleep! I’m sure he’s going to cry (and!) of hunger when you feel like it. And wake him unnecessarily just causes you delay the natural process of the child sleep through the night.

–Wrap the baby is great
Make that “Pat” stalling the baby in a diaper or blanket and keeping your arms and legs without movement, help in fact calm. Especially in the first month and if it’s cold. No need to worry that the baby will be without moving your arms. That’s what actually it does matter and that will bring security to him. For this abuse of this deception and complement with the baby Nest I have ever taught HERE and that many readers did and said really work!

–Rashes appear at a glance
And it’s not your fault! Before da Bruna was born I thought only happen when the baby’s diaper stayed a long time with the same diaper or when it was not cleaned properly. I soon discovered that other dozens of factors can cause Nappy rash as change of diet, birth of teeth and low resistance. So you always have at home an option more “powerful” than the common diaper rash creams. Between polishes without contraindication and help I like Desitin Purple and Cetrilam.

-That folds the legs, arms and neck also assam and are smelling bad. Find more fat, always remember to dry the folds and if you stay vermelhinhas, sprinkle a bit of cornstarch that helps a lot!

-That most mothers are afraid to cut baby’s nails and clean the belly button. So for the first few days, buy several screw that has a softer side, and sand rather than cut. Because at first the nail of the baby is well glued to the skin and actually gives a bit of distress cut. Just a reminder that sandpaper used are full of bacteria. For this use, consider it disposable.
In relation to the navel, I was afraid the Bruna to clean with the cotton swab and alcohol 70%, especially because in some parts there was a few drops of blood. I cleaned surface. As a consequence; her belly button doesn’t fall and we had to take the Office. In Manu I cleaned it, passed in all corners with the swab at least 3 x a day fell in 1 week!

-The baby regurgitates a little after feedings.
The first time the milk of Bruna returned I freaked out, I thought it was acid reflux, she had vomited. Anyway … then I saw that in some stages of the milk back a little. This is quite common. For this nothing a few minutes on foot in my lap does not help. For babies with reflux observed by the pediatrician, then surely the recommendations are far more serious and specific to each case.

The cry of a baby with colic is desperate and maddening even mothers more centered. I haven’t been there. But I have friends and that passed and I got nights agreed with the cry of a baby in my building that I had cramps the morning. The baby not to cry, scream, turns red, purple, black, and we pray that mothers pass soon not only to see our children well, but also to be able to get some rest. What console is that the cramps pass, then count each day as “there goes another”.

–You can pet a lot your baby until the 3 months. Why at this stage babies still need a lot of warmth. Embrace, take the neck, shake, Kiss, love. Just don’t use any of those treats as artifice to make the baby sleep not to be hostage.

Otherwise follow your intuition as a mother all the time and call the pediatrician as many times as you want!

And you, do you have any more “learning” to indicate this list!?
