After delivery, should I keep infant warm? - Online Doctor Chats
hello Dr XXXXXXX
How are you?
i am blessed with a baby boy 2 days back
so i am happy :) but had one question
few people in the hospital say that we should keep the baby warm
few say that we need to keep it open and let it free
what should we really do?
the child needs to be kept warm XXXXXXX
children cant manage their temperature properly
so it becomes a problem
oh ok.. thanks doctor
how do we get to know if the baby is feeling hot and needs air
Check the feet and hands
if they are warm
your child is fine
ok.. Thanks a lot doctor...
Is there anything else I can help you with?
one more query please
currently we are having trouble with mother's milk
the generation is a little slow
it is slow initially
gradually it increases
as per doctor here, they say it will take another 1-2 days to increase.. as you suggest as well
currently clearly this is not sufficient for the baby
it starts increasing when the mother hears the cchild cry
so as alternative (along with available mother milk) we are giving sugar-water and cow-milk
is that fine?
its not required
and dont give it
how do we take care of the baby hunger then? it cries due to hunger, and on feeding the mentioned thing sleeps peacefully
The mother needs to hold the baby long enough
hold in a proper position
the back and neck of child should be supported completely
dont give the child anything else
its not required
so do we stop the external food completely?
no water also
normal to have the delay in milk generation right.. we do not need to give any medicine etc to speed up the process
the more your wife holds her son
the better it will be
thank you very much for your help doctor
helped a lot in getting basic questions answered
anything else I can help with?
nothing else doctor
Thanks for consulting me
Have a good day ahead
