Why Skin-To-Skin Contact With A New Born Is Important?

M.D(Pediatrics), MBBS
Pediatrician, Rewari
Why Skin-To-Skin Contact With A New Born Is Important?

Newborns primarily need your love, care, and attention. If you aren't sure whether you're on the right track with your little one, read on to find out the 3 most important things that your newborn needs:

1. Skin-to-skin contact: One of the best ways to speed up the bonding process with your newborn is by having as much as possible skin-to-skin contact with your child. This is important as the newborn connects through smell and touch during this time. The senses of your baby are naturally tuned to react to the feel of your bare skin and your distinctive smell.

Many studies also suggest that close physical contact can help in reducing stress in your newborn so as to allow its biological drive to come through and easily latch onto your breast to feed itself. In other words, it ensures a higher chance of getting the newborn started on breast milk in case your child is not taking to your breasts easily.

2. To be breastfed: The best food for your baby is milk that is produced by you. Breast milk offers a host of benefits that go beyond basic nourishment. According to research conducted by the national institute of environmental health sciences, a child faces 20% lower chances of dying between the ages of 28 days and 1 year if he or she is breastfed.

Protecting your child from illnesses such as childhood cancers or type 1 and type 2 diabetes, allergies, and obesity are some of the very important benefits that mother's milk can provide.

3. Swaddling your baby right: Wrapping a blanket snugly around the body of your newborn can help calm your little one and promote sleep. Several studies reveal that this technique of swaddling (which is done to resemble the mother's womb) if done correctly can bring about longer and better sleep for your child as well as reduce instances of crying. It also ensures your baby stays warm and comfortable.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

No its not true. Diapers can cause diaper dermatitis that too when improper care takes place. Otherwise diapers are not a problem at all.

She don't eat any thing and wants to sleep all time and wants that no one disturb her and she likes to live lone.
If only sleep had been a problem it would have been a different case but since you want to live alone it coukd a depression which is characterized by sadness of mood, lack of interest, hopelessness and lassitude lethargy and withdrawn from society which means wanna live alone. So you need a psychiatric consultation zo that you can overcome this depression and your laziness can aldo b taken care of. Do not hesitate and take tewatment as soon ad possible. Take care!

100% Dtap vaccine must give to children's. Even you can give pain less Dtap vaccine. It is less pain no fever. Children's Vaccines. DTaP is a vaccine that helps children younger than age 7 develop immunity to three deadly diseases caused by bacteria: diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough (pertussis). Tdap is a booster immunization given at age 11 that offers continued protection from those diseases for adolescents and adults.

There are bitter tasted medications available in market you can apply on thumb and gradually they forget to suck. However few babies are still resistant to this mode of therapy for them you need to apply habit breaker over upper teeth plates. Which are usually done by dentists.

My child is 4 year old. And his behavior is not normal. He can not constraints in any task. Always angry. Always arguing with us. Speak too much but that related to nothing. What should I do?

This is a a very common child problem. You should not think that he is doing it purposely. This anger and agitation is a problem which needs medical attention. It can be definitely treated with homeopathy. Make sure that the parents do not have conflicts and and anger scenes in front of the kid. Many times they copy the same. Homeopathic medicines can calm down such kids very naturally without any side effects. You can contact for further help. One home remedy you can try is massaging him with sesame oil in the evening and putting it on the head before bed, it can calm down his nerves and he may feel a bit calmer.
