I am a new mom of 2 and half month old baby. Do I need to start teaching him difference between day and night?

Is he old enough for that?

Sometimes he got red tiny acne on forehead specially. Do I stop wearing him woollen cap? I am afraid of him being allergic of eczema. What should I make him wear on head in winters.?

How much hot water is good for him for bathing?

Also suggest me how much tummy time is enough for him and how many times a day?

Yes to teach the difference between night and day keep day time bright noisy and playful. Feed often and awaken baby at regular intervals. Night can be quiet and dark and avoid excessive communication. Please do not use woollen caps. You can use a cotton cap for the head.Bath water should be tepid to the elbow. Tummy time is as per baby's preference. If baby is enjoying his time on the tummy then it could be longer but else just a few minutes at a time.

Thank you so much Sonali.
