The first days after the hospital
Each young mother, in addition to the list of things for discharge from the hospital, worried about the questions related to the preparedness of the home for the arrival of the baby. After all, after hospital sterile conditions it is necessary as carefully as possible to protect crumbs from drafts and other factors that can cause a cold.
Arranging baby room
In the first days after the maternity hospital, a children's room or a private corner should be prepared. It is worth remembering that you do not need to recreate hospital sterility, the baby should gradually get used to the microflora surrounding it. Otherwise, he may have an allergy. The room should be well ventilated, therefore it is necessary to keep the window in the warm season open. Many young parents are worried that the child will overcool, but overheating is just as dangerous. If the crumb is cold, it will be noticeable on it: it can start to cry, and when overheating, there are often unnoticeable signs. Therefore, it is not necessary to wrap the baby too much. If in an apartment dry air or the first days after a maternity hospital fell on the winter period, when heating works, then it is worth buying moisturizers. Such devices can be found in all major children's stores.
After returning the child, you need to change into your home clothes.

On the first day at home after the maternity hospital it is necessary to restrict the arrival of relatives - the crumb adapts to the new environment, and strangers can only add stress. At this time, it is not necessary to arrange walks and bathing, so far enough rubbing, washing and timely replacement of diapers. You can practice a joint dream by laying the diaper on the bed beforehand. At night, often have to get up, so you need a separate site on the bedside table or table, where there will be a night light and all the necessary things. Thanks to this, it will be possible to feed, soothe and pack the baby much faster, change the diaper.
A nurse or a district pediatrician usually comes on the third or fourth day. The questions you are interested in can be systematized and recorded, since it takes a lot of time for a child to be in the first days after the hospital and it is sometimes difficult to concentrate. For the doctor, you need to prepare shoe covers or slippers. The pediatrician will look at the crumbs, give some recommendations on some procedures and will acquaint you with the main rules of care.
Sometimes young mothers and fathers in the first days after the hospital cause a panic completely natural phenomena, especially if there is no one to consult.
