Removing the diaper If your baby has an intestine, slowly remove the diaper using the front of the diaper to remove as much feces as possible( 4).Fold the diaper, put it in a plastic container, discard later.
Cleaning the girl's tummy and legs While holding the baby firmly, but gently, moisten a piece of cotton wool and wipe the area of the tummy. With a new portion of cotton wool
, clean the child's folds( 5).Wipe movements down and away from the child's body to avoid infection on the genitals.
Wiping the genitals and ass When wiping the girl with one hand, gently hold it by the ankles, placing a finger between them and slightly lifting her ass. With a clean piece of cotton wool, wipe the outer lips of the vulva, but do not clean inside( 6).When rubbing the genitals, always move downward so as not to transfer the bacteria from the anus to the vagina.
CARE FOR THE BOY THROUGH THE CUTTING
If your boy has been circumcised, try not to bathe him until the wound heals. If a bandage has been applied to him, you may need to do bandages when you change the diaper in the first day or two. Apply a light bandage type gauze, so as not to damage the baby's skin.
Probably, it takes seven to ten days to heal the wound. During this time, the end of the penis of the baby can be red and wet, and yellow discharge may also appear. Even sores may appear if the wound is in contact with moist diapers. If the bleeding does not stop, the child will have a fever, pustules and swelling will appear, consult a pediatrician.
Then, continuing to hold the back of the raised, clean piece of cotton wool, wipe the buttocks. Wipe the
back of the hips and, if necessary, the back. Dry the entire area thoroughly.
BOY When removing a diaper, the boy
can be described, so do this operation slowly. With a clean cotton swab, wipe his penis with outward movements, do not push the flesh out. Also wipe the area around the testicles. Holding the baby by the ankles, slightly lift his buttocks and brush the area of the anus and the outer side of the thighs. Thoroughly dry the cleaned surfaces.
Most children love to swim, but since your little baby will not be very dirty, there is no need to bathe it more often once a week. Since some children are freezing, it is good to warm up the room before bathing and prepare everything in advance. You will need two soft towels, a jug with chilled boiled water to wash your face, cotton swabs, a soft baby shampoo, a plastic washstand or a bath, a clean diaper and clothes.
Face wash To avoid the risk of infection, it is best to wash the child's face from a separate jar with warm, pre-boiled water. Wet the cotton swab and gently wipe the eye from the nose outward( 1).Use a clean tampon to do the same for the other eye. Wipe another swab around the mouth, nose, ears and neck, do not brush inside the ears and nose.
Wash the hair Closely wrap the baby in a towel so that the hands are closed. While holding the
's legs between your hand and your side so that you can grab them under your arm, put the child's body on your forearm and the head on your palm. Tilt the baby over the tub or basin and wet your hair with your free hand. Apply a little baby shampoo and then rinse with water ( 2).
Drying the hair Wipe the hair with a soft, not wrinkling, edge of the soft towel( 3).Do not press on the soft fontanel too much and try not to cover the child's face, as he may get frightened and cry.
FILLING THE SANITARY WATER AND TESTING THE TEMPERATURE
Set the bathtub on a secure surface, check that it does not slip. Keep it out of the water stream.
To prevent overheating, first pour cold water, then add hot water. Thoroughly mix and check the temperature with your elbow or inner surface of your wrist, so that the water is pleasantly warm - approximately equal to body temperature.
