But not all of them are feasible and convenient for new parents. Listed below are some proven tips that work wonders while you are starting your parenting journey.

 

Holding the baby the right way!

 

You should never undermine the way you hold a baby. It can be very dangerous for their fragile bodies to withstand a bad position. Follow these tips for a proper position:

  • Wash your hands before holding your baby. Especially during this pandemic, you should bathe instead.
  • Provide adequate support to the neck and head. Babies are very delicate creatures, they need to be treated gently.

  • Don’t shake your baby, it can lead to brain injuries or even fatal incidents.
  • Fasten your baby carefully in a car seat or stroller. They should feel comfortable at all times.
