Babies – The most special creation of GOD, need special care in all respects. If not taken care properly, the results will be very drastic which may lead to all sorts of infection. In early days of birth, child should be put under special care where his tender skin and systems are not exposed to any adversities. Being a mother is indeed a very special feeling and it elevates your position in your own eyes. Suddenly from a carefree girl, you get transformed into a responsible woman. Holding a baby in your hands and close to your bosom generates very special emotions in a mother.
As a mother, your biggest responsibility is towards his tender skin which should be treated with utmost care as it is most prone to all sorts of infections. The first activity which starts right from the time of birth is of peeing and pooing which is quite a bothersome activity for young mothers, especially first timers, but one has to put up with it. Special care needs to be taken regarding this activity so that tender area remains dry all through, especially during the nights when it is particularly difficult to attend. What to say if baby is born in winters?
1. Pampers for your new born
Pampers – Biggest revelation in a young mother’s life.
The activity (peeing & pooing) can be best taken care by Pampers which are the softest diapers for the babies, hence preferred by mothers all over the world. Soft and hygienic diapers are very important – read Pampers which keep baby’s bums dry through the night and he sleeps peacefully (& mothers too). It is very important to keep baby’s bums dry and smooth as his skin is unable to bear even slightest of harshness which may lead to rashes. Skin’s health is best maintained by soft and dry diapers because your baby’s skin is smooth, soft and highly delicate which needs that extra care and attention. This is provided by Pampers Premium care pants surely, with Magic Gel that instantly locks away wetness, Pampers baby dry pants keeps your little one’s skin dry and healthy. They’re also easy to pull up and down and provide your baby with up to 12 hours of overnight dryness for fresh and happy mornings.
So how do I know that? I gave the hamper of Pampers Premium Care pants to my colleague Ikwinder Singh’s new born son and got an update from his wife Harpreet, that baby loved them, and she even more. She was not compromising on her sleep anymore. (I shared the Pampers hamper with him which I received during Pampers event during WIN 15). I must admit that Pampers are made of softest and most hygienic material which is ideal for baby’s soft, smooth and delicate skin. Ikwinder shared pictures of his lovely babies, enjoying Pampers Premium care pants.
2. Baby’s clothes
Mothers are very fascinated with their little bundle of joy and want to dress him to the hilt. But according to me you should avoid dressing your babies like Christmas Tree, instead doll them up in simple cotton or hosiery material dresses which should be made of softest & hygienic fabric. Choose light weight and smooth fabrics which enable baby’s skin to breathe all through, though you can opt for floral prints, bright plaids or soft pastels. Believe me your baby will look lovely, and will be comfortable too. Skin – friendly fabrics are important, as harsh fabrics may cause rashes on his tender skin. So for the time being you can avoid those frills, embroideries and embellishments.
3. Fabric Softeners
Nowadays, very nice fabric softeners are available in the market which not only softens the clothes but also add aroma to the clothes. According to me, instead of leaving clothes with wash of harsh detergents on baby’s clothes and undergarments, using fabric softener will be a great value addition. It will keep your baby’s skin tender and soft. Soft clothes and undergarments help in keeping away all sorts of infections, hence saving you from trip to doctors. As goes the saying – Prevention is better than cure!
4. Baby’s bed sheets
The apple of your eyes needs the best. You bring those kiddie print bed sheets for your darling little one with Barbie Prints or Chota Bheem prints, but wait have you checked the fabric or have just gone with the print? Prints can wait, till he grows up a little and his skin is able to bear brunt of fabric. But as for now, he will not enjoy the print but fabric of the bed sheet which should be soft on his tender skin as he spends most of the time on bed. Bed sheets made of pure and soft cotton should be laid on his bed which gives warmth in winters and coolness in summers. Have you tried Khadi bed sheets? Your baby would love to be on them…and you even more as you are helping an artisan by buying khadi.
5. Mother’s Hands
I know, baby’s birth brings lot of extra work for mothers. You are up late-nights, work during the day, attend to various chores like his peeing & pooing and constant feeding etc. You barely get time to attend to yourself. But please take out time to attend to your hands at least which should be regularly moisturized and sanitized so that when you hold the baby in your hands, he loves it even more in your tender hands. A child is happiest in his mother’s arms; make sure your hands are the softest in the world for him. Regular use of hand creams, lotions and moisturizers is must for young mothers.
What is the use of providing him with all things soft around him, when your own hands are not?
I think these five things will not only keep your baby’s skin soft, dry, tender & infection free but mothers happier too. You should go for everything, #SoftestForBabySkin.
“Pampers brings you the softest ever Pampers Premium Care Pants. Its cotton-like softness is #SoftestForBabySkin and allows it to breathe, thus keeping baby’s skin soft and healthy, and your baby happy.”
