Common neonatal and infant problems and easy solutions

HERE WE PROVIDE SIMPLE SOLUTIONS AND ANSWERS TO THOSE QUESTIONS EVERY NEW MOTHERS HAVE.


Baby vomiting after feed


All babies throw up some amount of curdled milk soon after feed. Swallowed air is expelled out of the stomach along with the ingested milk. Good burping after each feed will take care of this problem.

Enlarged baby’s breast


It occurs due to transfer of hormones from the mother to baby through the placenta. Avoid local massage and fomentation. Never try to express the milk. The engorgement spontaneously disappears.

Bleeding from vagina or white discharge


Menstrual like vaginal bleeding may occur in some female infant after 3-5 days of birth. The bleeding is mild and lasts for 2-4 days. It does not need treatment except cleaning. Similarly whitish discharge is due to withdrawal of hormones.
