Q:

Hi all.. is it safe for the 10 days old baby to put diapers?? my baby pees n this disturbs her sleep whole day n night.. whenever i go cgange her nappy and sleeping sheet she obviously gets her sleep disturbed and wakes up.. so is it fine if i use diaper atleast at night for her?



Hi Rashmi its ofcourse safe to use, I have been using diapers from day 1 for my daughter. Yes the cloth or nappy changing procedure definitely disturbs their sleep. Make sure to change the diaper every 3 hours in the beginning as they will pee more and when soiled immediately, apply coconut oil while changing the diaper. Also give diaper free time when she is playing or awake.

Rebecca Prakash ok thank u so much mam... also she is finding difficult to do potty... means she does little little and needs to apply pressure n becomes cranky.. what to do for smoothing her potty??

Hi Rashmi yes they do little only in the beginning atleast for 7 to 8 times a day. You drink plenty of water and feed her that's the only way. Atleast 4 liters of water, you can also apply heeng paste on her tummy and massage and feed her every 2 hrs till she gains her birth weight.

Rebecca Prakash thank u so much.. i do drink lots of water but still will improve the quantity... n i do feed her every 2 hrs... but whole day she doesn't sleep enough but at night she sleeps nicely n i wake her up for feeding...

Hi if she is sleeping in the night just dream feed every 4 or 5 hrs.

Rebecca Prakash Sure mam i feed her exactly every 2hrs but it disturbs her sleep alot... so its fine if i feed her after 4-5 hrs right?

Hi yes in the night 4 5 hrs gap is okay.
