Need some advice on care for my newborn who is 3 weeks old now.
Does any parents clean your newborn nose? I read from books saying that infant's nose and ears are self cleaning, hence no cleaning is require. Except if there is any mucus outside, just use wet cotton wool to wipe off. My CL advised me to buy Salacyn 0.9% eye drops and drip 1 drop into each nostrils, then use a twisted tissue paper to clean for him. She said her previous client went to a pediatrician, and the doctor advised them to buy the eye drops to use for cleaning the nose. I want to ask if anyone use that too? Also any tips care to share in nose care for newborn?
I actually did not really clean his nose... just wipe the outside... but so far ok.. i think because is newborn.. so i also dont't dare to put anything inside...
One of my boy's eye always has sticky yellowish tears. My auntie and CL told me that it is very normal as he is still jaundiced so it is sort of a way of the body eliminating the toxic out... Is it true? Should I bring him to see a doctor?
if you r worried you can go to pediatrician... because some normal GP dont't really see newborn baby.. it might be an infection.. so is better to go...
My boy occasionally will sneeze but no runny nose or mucus or phlegm. Is that ok? Should we bring him to a doctor? How do I know if it is not cold or flu?
is normal for baby to sneeze.. as long as is not flu... what i heard is that.. because they dont't have nose hair.. so dust will get in.. that's y they sneeze more often then us...
