What does at-home baby care involve ?

Baby care a lot of tasks – most of them are repetitive and need to be performed daily by either parents. While the specific needs of each baby may vary widely, depending on many factors, such as age, the developmental stage they’re at, and whether or not they suffer from any health issues. There are some common elements that apply to every baby that are integral components of baby care and they include:

  1. Feeding: Feeding is an important part of baby care, as infants- due to their small bodies and not enough body stores of nutrients, energy or fat they require regular breast feeding to support their growth and development- especially during this period where they need it the most. For newborns, feeding typically involves breastfeeding – which is the preferred option as it fosters mother-baby connection- but some might also opt for formula feeding. Thid feeding should take place every couple of hours or whenever it’s felt like the baby needs it, while older babies may begin to explore solid foods. JPR Home Health Care’s Baby care providers assist with feeding by preparing bottles, feeding infants according to their feeding schedules – as prescribed by the doctor or their mother, and providing breastfeeding education to those mothers that need it.
  2. Diapering: Diapering is another vital aspect of baby care, as infants require frequent diaper changes to maintain hygiene and prevent discomfort resulting from skin rashes, why are likely fungal infections that may cause itching, skin redness and other skin problems. Our baby care nurses, caregivers and babysitters make sure to change diapers regularly, while also checking for signs of diaper rash or infection- fungal or otherwise, and ensuring that the baby’s buttocks area is clean and dry at all times.
  3. Bath time and Hygiene: Bathing -with gentle soap of course, avoid using harsh cleansers as the baby’s skin is especially delicate – helps to keep babies clean and comfortable while promoting healthy skin and preventing infections- to which your baby might prone to due to poor skin care. Our home health care providers bathe infants using gentle, baby-safe products, paying attention to proper water temperature and support during bathing making sure the baby stays safe and the water level is conducive to safe bathing. They also perform routine hygiene tasks such as cleaning the baby’s face, hands, and diaper area.
  4. Sleeping: Getting enough sleep is crucial for a baby’s overall health and development. The value of a good night’s sleep is tremendous as a child/baby who lacks enough sleep tends to be grumpy and they also cry a lot, creating a headache and discomfort for parents who might already be exhausted from work or other life events. Our baby care team takes care of all of this, assisting with establishing a healthy sleep routine for you baby, and soothing them to sleep when needed – including singing their favorite lullabies. They also keep an eye on the sleep patterns of your baby and provide you with guidance on techniques for promoting restful sleep.
  5. Comforting care : Babies mostly rely on their parents, and at times caregivers- for safety and comfort. When they are upset or distressed, babies tend to cry, sometimes excessively so. Our Baby care providers, with their years of experience, can utilize various soothing techniques, such as rocking, swaddling, and gentle touch, to calm fussy babies and help them feel safe and secure.
  6. Development: JPR Home Health Care’s Baby care providers can also keep an eye out for developmental milestones, making sure babies are at an equal footing with their and the development stages as elucidated by WHO. They also enlist the help of doctors, like pediatricians, if they feel like the baby is lagging behind. They also track things like babbling and first words, facial expressions like smiling, reflexes, and providing feedback to parents or healthcare professionals.
  7. Safety: Babies are prone to accidents since their brains haven’t yet fully developed, which makes ensuring a safe environment for your baby of vital importance. Our Baby & child care providers in Dubai, and all other parts of UAE, are especially vigilant about identifying and mitigating potential hazards in the baby’s immediate and general environment, including his crib. They pay attention to things such as sharp objects, choking hazards, or unsafe furniture that might inflict harm on the baby either directly or indirectly. Our caregivers and nurses also trained to practice safe handling techniques when carrying or moving children and babies.
  8. Play and Stimulation: Babies usually learn and develop through play and interaction with the environment around them- including the people in that environment- like family members, parents, other children and so on. The more they’re stimulation, the better chance they have to develop and learn new things about the world and people around them. Our baby care providers involve babies and infants in activities that are appropriate to their age and development stage, encouraging them to safely explore the world around them, leading the promotion of cognitive, social, and emotional development.

How to breastfeed a new baby properly?

Breastfeeding is the most natural and beneficial way to nourish your baby, helping foster connection between the mother and the newborn baby. Barring that, some mother’s might opt for bottle feeding, which isn’t ideal but can still get the job done. However, it also presents challenges for some new mothers. Using the proper way to breastfeed your new baby is essential for ensuring that he gets enough milk and to prevent any breastfeeding-related issues like discomfort, nipple soreness or breast engorgement, resulting from milk being stored in breast tissues and glands.

Follow the below tips and tricks to breastfeed  your baby the right way :

  1. Positioning:The right way to position your body and that of your baby is of utmost importance for effective and safe feeding. Start by holding your baby close to your body with their nose aligned with your nipple. Then, you should support your baby’s head and neck with your hand or arm, ensuring they are facing your breast and you can look at the baby as they feed. Also, notice your baby’s mouth. It should be wide open with their lips pointing outwards.
  2. Latching: having your baby latch around your nipple the right way is key to successful breastfeeding. Wait for your baby to open their mouth wide before bringing them to your breast. Aim your nipple toward the roof of your baby’s mouth, ensuring they take in a large portion of the areola-which is the darker colored area around your nipples. A deep latch ensures efficient milk transfer and prevents nipple pain.
  3. Comfort: Breastfeeding should be comfortable for both you and your baby. If you experience any sort of pain or discomfort, gently remove the baby’s mouth by inserting your finger into the corner of your baby’s mouth. Try latching again after some time. Also, try adjusting your position to give your baby and yourself more comfort. If none of the above works for you, we advice that you seek help from your doctor, or pediatrician,  if the discomfort lasts for a long period.
  4. Frequency of feeding sessions: New born babies are hungry, hungry cute little creatures. And their favorite food is, of course, milk. They typically feed several times per day, often up to every 2-3 hours, and sometimes even more, depending on many factors. You ought watch for hunger cues from your baby, such such as rooting, sucking motions, or hand-to-mouth movements – all indicating his desire to be fed- and feed your baby whenever you feel like they might be hungry. Allow them to feed for as long as they continue to actively suck and swallow, which may fall in the range of 10-20 minutes on each breast.
  5. Switch between breasts: offer both of your breasts during each feeding session to ensure adequate milk supply, as the stimulation of suckling may increase milk production, and it also allows for emptying of the breasts, decreasing your risk of painful engorgements and infections. Start with one breast and allow your baby to suck until they slow down or detach on their own. Then, burp your baby on your shoulders and try and offer them the other breast. This helps to stimulate milk production and reduces your chances of developing any painful engorgement.
  6. Burping: Burp your baby regularly on your shoulders, preferably after each feed, or you can utilize other techniques if you wish. Burping after feedings has many benefits, including helping to release any air or gas the baby might have swallowed during feeding, and preventing discomfort and bloating. Start by holding your baby upright against your shoulders, or you can sit them on your lap, and gently pat or rub their back until they burp. Easy, right?!
  7. Stay Hydrated and nourished: Stay hydrated and consume enough fluids along with a balanced diet to support not only milk production but also your overall health.  You should try to drink plenty of water – or any suitable alternatives- throughout the day and consume nutrient-rich foods, including fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains.
  8. Seek support from a professional: Don’t hesitate to seek help from your GP, OBGYN or Pediatrician if you’re having difficulty with breastfeeding. Lactation consultants, breastfeeding support groups, and healthcare providers can offer guidance, reassurance, and practical tips to help you and your baby establish a successful breastfeeding relationship.
