Here is some vital information about newborn baby care:
1. The toilet
It is necessary to wash your hands every time you take care of your baby. So, you should wash your hands before you take your baby to the toilet. Always prepare all the necessary equipment for the toilet before taking your baby there, like clothes, cotton, gauze, soap, towels, etc.
2. The umbilicus
It should be cleaned very carefully until it is healed to avoid infection. This is done using sterile gauze; you should gently pull the cord and then carefully clean it. You must continue this procedure until the umbilicus is completely healed (it takes around 10 to 15 days).
The eyes should be cleaned, if necessary, with a cotton pad soaked in saline. The ears are cleaned with dry cotton rolls (no sticks or cotton swabs), only the visible part is to be cleaned.
