Check the feeding position
Mother’s milk is the only source of nutrition for the baby. First, make sure that your baby drinks enough milk because it is the only source of nutrition which is very necessary for the growth of your child.
Feed as many times as possible to feed your child properly.
Keep your hands clean
Your baby’s skin as well the immune system is to germs and infection. Never touch your baby without washing your hands. Make sure that you clean your hands properly to avoid all possible contacts of germs to your baby.
Always ask others also to wash their hands before touching your baby. When a person comes from outside do not allow him or her to directly come near to your baby because a person coming from outside would carry more germs that can be harmful to the baby.
Do not overuse baby products

For a sponge bath Fill a sink, if nearby, or bowl with warm (not hot!) water.
Undress your baby and wrap him or her in a towel. Wipe your infant’s eyes with a washcloth or a clean cotton ball dampened with water only, starting with one eye and wiping from the inner corner to the outer corner. Use a clean corner of the washcloth or another cotton ball to wash the other eye. Clean your baby’s nose and ears with the damp washcloth. Then wet the cloth again and, using a little soap, wash his or her face gently and pat it dry.
