A new born baby requires the best care. Babies have low immunity till they reach their 6th month. So it’s very essential to keep babies safe from insects , dusts , rashes and pollutants. From my personal opinion Himalaya products are best for babies. Himalaya shampoo and body wash is best suited for babies compared to other products which has been used. Himalaya products are gentle. Never put on powder on ur baby till he/she is 6 months old. Powders tend to clog the pores in babies skin. For the skin you can use moisturizer instead of powder. Sebamed is one best product. The only con is it’s a bit costlier compared to other products but trust me it’s really worthy. The sebamed is formulated in a way it maintains the pH level in the baby skin hence making the skin so soft and free from allergies and rashes. Sebamed baby cream and the facial cream best suits any baby and gives higher protection and softness compared to any other products. For hair you can apply purr coconut oil. A few drops is enough to apply. Apply regularly . Never give your baby head wash daily. Twice a week is recommended.
I personally recommend Pampers. Pamper pants are so comfy and leak proof. Whatever diaper you use for the first 3 months you need to change the diapers frequently as the baby may use up to 8 diapers a day. Babies under 3mos tend to urinate and poop a lot so proper cleaning and care should be given in order to avoid urinary infections and rashes. The rashes at this stage may lead to tear skin and infect the skin easily and also babies with rash will cry continuously since the rash may cause itch and pain to baby. Always have a baby rash cream. If not you can apply coconut oil jus few drops in rash occurring areas after cleaning if the rash is jus started. If it’s a severe rash do consult a gp and apply the diaper rash cream often.
Vitamin D3 drops are very necessary to be given to baby after you bath baby in the morning. Since babies are kept inside home when are little one they lack exposure to sun to get necessary vitamin D3. So do give your baby 0.7ml of just Dee drops. Or the drops your gp prescribe.
Have some 6 nos cotton large towels to use. Always use a full covered dress till baby reaches three months age. Never mingle other clothes with baby cloths. Wash baby clothes separately with a mild liquid detergent. Pigeon or Mee Mee detergent s are good.
Use mittens as baby nails are delicate to cut at this stage. Using mittens avoid babies from getting hurt with their nails. Also mittens provide warmness in hands and legs. Don’t put baby in a temperature that baby sweats. Just maintain some warmness providing good covered cloths and blankets and keep baby in a good airated place.
Getting a crib is optional and it’s your choice. Babies tend to cry in the initials days but will get used to crib very quickly. Good cribs are available starting from 12k. Placing a crib require some space and keep it in a dust free place. Provide crib with bumpers so the baby don’t get hurt.
Always have a gp number with you and never hesitate to go to hospital on finding changes in baby behaviour like poop color changes, rashes, chillness, fever etc.
Waking up early in the morning is a very tedious process to many of us these days because of late to bed,tension, stress, tv etc. We have many reasons.
I will tell you the best resins wht you should wake up early and it’s necessity and a working formula to get up early.
Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy wealthy and wise..
What is the early morning?
Morning 4.00am to 5.00am is considered the early morning. This is a very auspicious time of a day . As per science it’s the time when your brain is active to a very high extend in the day. The one who wakes up at this time is benefited with high concentration, new fresh thoughts and is away from laziness throughout the day. This is the reason poets and many authors rise early . Hence they get good concentration and ideas. Students who wake up at this early morning time can study quick than others rising at 7.00am as concentration power is high this time.
So what can I do to wake up early?
There are three things you need to do to get up at 5.00am.
Set alarm at 4.30am to get up at 5.00am
We need to set up alarm at 4.30 and 4.50am. so that we will get our mind ready that in fees mins we need to get up and enjoy the few mins till it’s 5.00am and relax. So that when we get up at 4.50 alarm we will be able to get up. One time alarm in morning won’t work for many as we go to restroom the come back to bed and we ll never get up again. So if we set up concurrently two alarms we can be easily able to get up for sure.
Place alarm away from bed:
You need to place the alarm away from bed like in a study table in the room or somewhere near to the room. Make sure you set in in a near audible place. This we need to do so that when the alarm rings we are forced to get up and walk to get the alarm off. This fews steps walk towards the alarm is enough to make us leave the bed . Thus we are awake now.
Create a to-do list before day:
Creating a list before bedtime will make us use our next day early mornings efficiently. Plan the time from 5.00am to 9.00am . Have a list on what works we need to do. Like 5.00am to 6.00am walk, after that make some tea after that tennis or gardening etc. Students can have the book that they are weak in as at this time is proven to boost your concentration.
Early mornings have the pleasant time and fresh breeze.. Enjoy the nature at it’s best at early mornings. seeing the sunrise and doing yoga or having a cup of coffee with newspaper are the best for a good start of the day isn’t it? So come let’s enjoy our life with the beautiful nature.
