Gift for Baby

By Steven Olson

First and foremost, the most important aspect of baby care is not really in treating a baby when the baby gets ill, but doing all you can to prevent your baby from getting ill in the first place.

Ensure you give your baby lots of breast milk; don't listen to those who say you shouldn't breastfeed your baby for too long.

Note that the attention you will give to the skin of an adult is not the same attention you will give to the skin of a baby because a baby's skin is far more delicate and deserves far more attention. If your baby is a new born, it's not recommended to bath him or her too often; babies don't get dirty that often, especially if you always change their diapers.

Don't bath your baby too often as this can cause dry irritated skin; instead, a bath 2 or 3 times a week will do it for your baby until he or she starts crawling and getting dirty.

If you always have a problem sleeping because your baby isn't sleeping at nights, the technique to use is to always sleep when your baby is sleeping, even in the morning or afternoon; this way you make up for the moments that you stay awake when your baby is awake.

You mustn't resign from your job to take care of your new-born baby; you can take some months off from work to do this, and then return to work when your baby has grown up a little.

If you think taking care of a baby is nothing special, consider that the growth and health of a child is largely dependent on the kind of care he or she got in the beginning. Ensure that the diapers you use for your baby fits snugly; this will help prevent leaks.
Lastly, don't forget that the most important thing to consider as far as baby care is concerned is love; if you love you baby enough, you will do everything within your power to care for him or her, even if it takes you a real effort to do so.
