Congratulations on your newborn! If you are reading this, chances are you have a baby on the way or that just arrived.


               
           
               
                   

It is so easy to get confused with child care as a new parent. I have been there!


               
           
               
                   

Here are 5 things your doctors wish you knew about.


               
           
               
                   

These tips can save you several hospital runs and panics.


               
           
               
                   

1. Colic Happens


               
           
               
                   

A lot of newborns suffer colic. Colic. Studies show up to 65% of new Parents visited the hospital at least once because of Colic.


               
           
               
                   

What is Colic?


               
           
               
                   

Colic is simply trapped gas that causes severe pain in the abdomen of infants. Doctors diagnose Colic based on “rules of three”. If a baby is crying for at least 3 hours at a stretch, 3 times a week for at least 3 weeks in a row, he is said to be colicky.


               
           
               
                   

It can be a very tough phase for a new mum and baby to go through. Watching your newborn wriggle and cry as though they are in severe pain can be heart-wrenching. If you notice your baby cries for no reason (no hunger, heat, or wet diaper), groans as if in pains and pulls up his or her legs towards the stomach, that could be colic. Please check with your baby’s doctor to be sure.


               
           
               
                   

What to do?


               
           
               
                   

If your doctor confirms it to be colic, the tips below will come in handy to manage the pressure.


               
           
               
                   

1. Bicycle motion with his legs till he lets out the wind.


               
           
               
                   

2. Rubbing his stomach in a clockwise direction


               
           
               
                   

3. Applying pressure to his stomach.


               
           
               
                   

None of the above activities stops colic from happening once in a while but they will help suppress the pain if it does occur.


               
           
               
                   

2. Newborn Rash isn't deadly


               
           
               
                   

Except where it is an infection, a newborn rash is hardly ever severe. A new baby’s skin is prone to rashes, peeling, and other skin conditions. Fortunately, many of them clear out on their own without you having to do much.


               
           
               
                   

3. Your Child Doesn't Need Antibiotics for a cold


               
           
               
                   

CHILD DOESN’T NEED ANTIBIOTICS FOR A COLD


               
           
               
                   

Antibiotics are not needed in treating colds, flu, and other viral infections. When antibiotics are dosage is abused, antibiotic resistance occur (this is simply when the bacteria they’re meant to kill become too strong for them).


               
           
               
                   

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least 30 percent of antibiotic prescriptions are unnecessary.
