    What mothers need to know for taking care of a baby? (in the first four weeks of birth )
    baby
    If a mother is prepared for taking proper care of a new born, it will prevent a lot of inconvenience and tears of both mother and the child. Mothers feel bad and inadequate if they are not taking proper care of the baby, and they may also feel emotionally disturbed because becoming mother is a job which requires full time (almost 24 hours) work and great dedication. Some women prepare for the food and keep a good stock of freeze foods and favorite meals for themselves before going to labor, and there are also mothers who take training for holding, feeding and cleaning the baby.
    baby
    Actually, a new born is very delicate and you need to do every work carefully and cautiously. The baby is so fragile in the first few weeks that you need to keep harsh things away. Many women are backed by loving family where you have grandma, sisters or even an experienced staff to help you to take care of the baby. In the first few weeks of birth the mother may not get enough sleep as the work is too much and if you have other kids in the house, you should send them to day camp or call somebody to take care of them, as they too suffer neglect as the new baby is born.

    The important things you need to stock before the baby comes to your house are diapers and wipes. The skin of the baby is soft, so use the soft diapers and wipes for cleaning to prevent scratching. If the mother is not healthy enough in the first few weeks and in such situation people who are around, should help in cleaning the baby and changing diapers.

    baby

    The parents may have to pay visit to the doctors to ensure the weight of the baby is increasing as required and if the weight is not increasing – you need to take advice from the expert doctors. Mothers of new born are not in a position to entertain guests or people who visit regularly their house as they do not have time for themselves.
    Multitasking and working when the baby is sleep, is the key to do all your works. You cannot sleep with the baby for long, if you are alone taking care of the house and other works, the job is actually very hectic but heavenly for mothers of new born.
    You need a lot of things and baby items to ensure proper care of the baby and some of the infant kits are provided at our shop of Anything Indian. Anything Indian also provides a range of herbal products for the mother of newborn for easy health recovery.

    A baby can be 20 inches in height and it grows 10 inches more in the 1st year while in the second year growth can be reduced by half of the first year, which means by the age of 2, the child will be just 35 inches tall. After 2 years the child grows fasters at a rate of 2 and 2.5 inches.
