So your bundle of joy is already in your home! You just have the best gift in your life. I am pretty sure you are quite excited to take care of him. This is just like us mothers, no matter how tired we already are, we couldn’t care less as long as you know that your child is in the best condition.
Do you already know what to expect from your newborn baby? The best way to take good care of him is to know his traits. If you think you know enough, wait until you check out some of the most notable ones below:
The moment your baby is born, he has his eyes but he can’t really see that much. He might just be able to see things very near to him. Thus you should not panic about this as this is just normal.
There is really no need to bath him every day since he is just inside your home and he is not really doing anything. You can just wipe his body with a wet cloth and that should be enough especially when the umbilical cord is still with him.
When it comes to babies, their skin is still the most sensitive. Not only that their immune system is still not that strong as well. When choosing things for him, you should always prefer fragrance-free products so he will not develop any skin allergies.
Expect your baby to be always producing sounds. Yes, he might be small but he can be annoyingly noisy. It is just normal and in fact, it is said that it is impossible for a baby not to cry!
