Check Out 8 Things You Must Do For A New Born Baby Immediately After Birth

The first day of a newborn baby is always amazing. You will begin to reflect on all the responsibilities associated with caring for the little, fragile man who was born into the world.

There are many urgent requirements related to the care of newborns, which are as follows:

1. Clean the part that cuts the umbilical cord

Your baby is connected to you in the uterus by the umbilical cord. This provides the baby with food and oxygen when needed. After delivery, the umbilical cord is cut and dropped on the baby's navel. All you need to do is keep the area clean and dry at all times.

2. Breastfeed the baby

Breastfeeding is very important for newborns because breast milk is the most nutritious thing you can give your baby. It is high in protein, colostrum, which is very beneficial for babies.

3. Test appearance, pulse, grin, activity and breathing

This is the first test the doctor should do on your baby on the charger. This is known as the "APGAR test".

The test is assessed based on the results to determine the normality of the baby. If the results are too low, the doctor should immediately pay medical attention to the baby.

5. Check the baby's weight

After giving birth, you will need to check your baby's weight to find out how he is doing. Most newborns weigh between 2 and 4 kg. You need to know how much your baby weighs so that you can monitor how well your baby is.

6. Make skin contact with your baby

This is one of the most important things to do after your baby is born. This gets your baby used to it and creates a bond between you and baby.

7. Giving vitamin K to babies

Vitamin K is needed by newborns to prevent bleeding. It also helps blood clot.

8. Vaccinations

BCG (Bacillus quietete guerin) is a vaccine used to protect children from tuberculosis. Meanwhile, the hepatitis B vaccine is also important because this disease is fatal.
