Basic use of diapers
As far as the part of the skin where the diaper is used, healthy skin is suitably dry.
Wet skin can quickly become fragile and prone to diaper rash.
In order to better reduce the wetness caused by diapers, change the diapers as often as possible and use diapers with strong absorption.
If you use cloth diapers for your baby, it is more appropriate to check and change them frequently.
Vaseline oil, zinc oxide ointment or rash cream also help protect the skin from the effects of interference.
Baby powder may feel comfortable on the baby’s skin, but it is not best for babies.
Baby powder can reduce the friction between the diaper and the child’s skin in a short time, but once it is wet (the child will definitely wet it!
), It’s useless.
Your baby may even inhale large amounts of powder, which can be very dangerous.
As the child continues to grow, the number of diaper changes will gradually decrease, starting at an average of ten times a day and gradually reducing to six times.
Usually change diapers before or after each feeding and after each bowel movement.
Also, change the diaper while the child is awake before going to bed.
You can also change your diaper before you take your child out.
When changing diapers, you have the right hand at hand:?
A clean diaper?
Nappy cream or petroleum jelly?
A soft towel and a small basin of warm water make sure you have everything ready before you start. Never leave the baby alone on the changing table!
Remove the wet diaper first.
If it’s just wet, you can change it without cleaning the genital area.
If the diaper is still stained with stool, clean the child’s hips with a towel and warm water appropriately.
There is no need to use soap, unless the child has diarrhea, and it is not cleaned with water alone.
When necessary, use elastic soap (even elastic soap will remove important natural oils from your child’s skin).
Then, apply ointment or petroleum jelly and put on clean diapers.
Special tips for loving newborn baby girls: Always rub from front to back to prevent stool from contaminating the genitals.
Only water is needed to clean this part.
During the first few days, fluid or even a portion of the blood is expelled from the vagina, which is normal because the child is adapting to the hormones that are transformed in his body after birth.
Special advice for newborn baby boys: wipe the same from front to back.
If your only child is not circumcised, do not pull the foreskin backward.
The foreskin will gradually relax on its own, and by the age of three it usually shrinks completely.
If he is circumcised, cover the penis appropriately with gauze coated with vaseline oil or antibiotic ointment to help the wound heal.
Some swelling and yellow rice may occur during the first Wednesday.
