Is wrapping a baby necessary?

Tips on changing

When you are wrapping baby, you will spend a lot of time with your baby for several years. Therefore, make the changing room comfortable and easy on your back (wrapping area at the height of your hips and 70 cm deep, 80 cm wide) and use this time as time for your relationship. Winding can always be combined with petting or a little game.

The winding place should be pleasantly warm (if necessary radiant heater).

Keep everything within reach, so you can always hold the baby with one hand while wrapping.

Whenever the baby is wet or has a bowel movement, it should be wrapped. This is usually the case after drinking, since drinking causes the emptying reflex, which makes most babies into diapers when drinking.

If a baby is one of those “spit children” who often get a small amount of milk after the meal, the wrap should be better before the meal or e.g. between the first and second breasts, so that it has rest after digesting.

Furthermore, a baby is wrapped at bedtime, Eegfahren or going for a walk – so always when the diaper for a long time to “keep tight”.

At night, babies with healthy skin do not always have to be wrapped.

In the first half year babies should be wrapped wide. That is, the diaper web should be wide enough to keep the legs in a slight stance.

As you wrap, you’ll be better at interacting with your baby on a daily basis and discovering the best way to keep your legs (feet or thighs) clean with a lukewarm, damp washcloth, and how to make the most of it attract.

Use soft toilet paper and a damp washcloth for cleaning. On the way wet or oil cloths can be used.

Cloth diapers should be washed at 60 degrees C, the baby has an infection (also fungal infection), so 95 degrees C are required. Do not use any phosphate-containing detergents or fabric softeners.

The important thing is never to leave the baby alone at the changing table, to talk to the baby while babysitting and to tell him what to do.

Help with sore butt:

Babies may be mild redness, red pimples, rashes or severely inflamed and sore spots on food, diapers or detergents. The following may help to reduce this lesion soon:

In case of suspected irritation by the diaper or a detergent change the diaper brand or the detergent. Thoroughly rinse cloth diapers.

Wrap the baby at short intervals.

When wrapping baby clean with lukewarm, thin chamomile tea or dab under lukewarm running water and then very gently dry or dry with a lukewarm hair dryer.

Often let the baby kick her bare bottom.

Apply thinly on the sore spots a wound cream (doctor, pharmacy).

Nursing mothers should avoid acidic fruits and vegetables as well as nuts and chocolate.
