Normally baby sleeps for about 18-20 hours per day and they suck mother’s breast mostly even during sleep. Therefore, it is advisable to latch your baby even if he is in sleep.
There are many reasons for crying a baby.
- Baby is hungry.
- Baby is wet.
- Inner lining of clothes is irritating to baby.
- Baby is having nasal blocked.
Therefore, it is advisable to feed your baby well, check diapers frequently, use nasal saline, give tummy time and comfort to your baby. Check clothes and finally if not all above measures work consult your pediatrician.
Ideally, vaccination should be on time. Delay of 4-5 days is OK but if vaccination of your baby is delayed, you should get him vaccinated at the earliest.
No, most of the times premature babies cover-up like most of the term babies by the age of 1 year. However, if they are not nourished properly they are more prone to infections. Premature babies are generally of low birth weight and they should be nursed in a good NICU set-up in initial few days under the supervision of a qualified neonatologist, pediatrician and nurses.
We start complementary feeding by the age of 6 months. During initial days by the age of 6 months. During initial days, babies are reluctant to take feed because they know how to suck but they do not know how to swallow; so it takes some time to train themselves for feeding. Regular monitoring of weight, height and head circumferences is necessary for estimate of adequate growth.
