Baby’s First Month

- Neck - Baby’s neck is the most important part that has less support. Every time you carry, make sure your palm supports baby’s head. If anything goes wrong, it can be fatal or permanent disorder for baby.

- Navel – Always clean with wet tissue and keep it dry. It might take a few days to fall off the remaining attachment on navel.

- Powder – Always change diapers and use ant rash cream together with baby powder. Usually, if the baby cries, either hungry or pampers is wet or defecated.

- Jaundice – 90% of the new born baby is likely having Jaundice or “Penyakit Kuning”. You can get Chinese medicine to bath your baby and within 4 days it is gone. Or, you can put your baby under early morning sun… once get heat, move him away. You can also go to any private hospital and put under heater and the charge is around RM20-50 per day only. You can feed your baby with goat’s milk too, around 2-3 spoon a day will help reduce Jaundice. If 1-2 ounce of fresh goats milk a day for 3-4 days will completely remove Jaundice as well.

- Always clean your baby. At least once a day must bath him.

- Feed every 3-4 hour once of 2-3 ounce of milk. Try to combine your servings with formulated milk, mother’s milk, cow’s milk and goat’s milk. The best recommended is breast milk and formulated milk.

- Try to avoid giving sugar drinks or dextrose (most commonly known as “Glucose”)

- Parent’s won’t have enough sleep at night. It is best to take one month break from your work.
