Look who’s talking??
(A baby advising his mom)
Hi ! Mommy,as you already know it’s been only a few weeks since I have arrived and I am still trying to adjust to this outside world.It is so different from the comfortable,safe and quiet environment I was in for nine months.
There is too much noise and light.It seems so strange and weird at times.But I am slowly learning to adjust and to enjoy it all.
I really love it when you smile at me with so much love in your eyes and the way you care for all my little or not so little needs-be it food ,sleep,clothing even at the most unearthly hours.I can feel how precious I am to you and how much importance you give to my comfort,safety and happiness.
Mom! I enjoy a lot when you give me a body massage with the lukewarm oil.I am sure you have checked that this oil is safe for babies’ skin and is suitable according to the climate or region.The massage is so soothing .It increases the blood circulation in my body and will thereby help in making me and my bones strong and healthy.The oil makes my skin so smooth and shiny.I also sleep blissfully after a nice massage.
I know you use only natural baby friendly soaps and body washes while giving bath to me.It is even better if they are organic as well.The chemicals in low quality synthetic soaps can be too harsh for my sensitive skin which can cause dryness and itchiness as the chemicals can strip off the natural oils from my skin.These chemicals can be harmful to my body systems if absorbed through my skin,as the skin also acts like a sponge.
Please don’t forget to apply a good quality baby moisturiser to my skin after the bath.This helps to maintain the hydration of the top layer of my skin and thus helps my skin to be soft and glowing.Don’t let me play in water for too long as water can rob off the natural oils off my skin.
Sometimes,when you make me wear new clothes I become very restless and agitated.You too become very anxious and worried on seeing me in such a bad mood.Do you know what troubles me ?It is those clothes that are not comfortable at all as the fabric is not soft and it causes lot of irritation on my skin.Always make sure that the material of my clothes is ultra soft and preferably natural like cotton, as my skin is still so delicate.Wash even the brand new clothes before use.
Use only gentle natural liquid soaps to wash my clothes as the chemical in other detergents can be harmful to my skin.My clothes should always be clean and hygienic to keep disease causing germs at bay and ensure proper skin care and overall good health.
And mumma,you know what i hate the most?
It is being stranded helplessly in a wet or ill-fitting diaper.The worst part is I cannot even properly communicate my discomfort and uneasiness to you.I can only cry and howl to gain your attention and eagerly hope that you’all understand my misery soon enough and rescue me from the unease.
I know how my screaming drives you mad at times! So please be extra careful and cautious in selecting the correct diaper.
Look for these points while choosing the right diaper:-
a)It should be made of highly absorbent material so as provide optimum dryness for the longest time.The humid environment can result in skin infections.It should be super soft to feel comfortable enough even when wearing it for long time.
b)The diaper should be of proper shape,designed according to the shape of my body and it should fit me perfectly.The sides of the diaper should be stretchable,thereby providing maximum comfort and be easily wearable.
Too tight diapers which do not fit properly can cause redness and rashes on my skin.This is very uncomfortable and results in me being very cranky.You may find me difficult to handle in such a situation.Mommy you can consult my pediatrician and apply the rash cream recommended by the doctor ,to soothe my agitated skin area.
c)Select a diaper which has wetness indicator.This will help you to conveniently notice as soon as the diaper is wet.Thus it can be changed without any delay.This will ensure dryness and proper hygiene to keep skin problems away.
Following the above mentioned tips will make my skin healthy and I will remain a happy and content baby.Hence ensuring your happiness as well !
