Some peculiarities, some symptoms may cause questions in young parents. Here are some small problems that may occur when the baby is 1 month old and ask questions ....
> Small red spots?
If your young infant has small red (angioma-like) birthmarks on the face, for example, on the eyelids, do not bother too much, over time they will fade.
> The very white tongue?
Again, do not panic, a language with a very white appearance is normal in a young baby who is 1 month old. Especially if he is fed breast milk. His salivary apparatus is not really mature yet.
> Blisters on the lips?
Your baby of 1 month has some kinds of vesicles on the lips, there is a priori nothing very serious. They are the result of the sucking reflex, your baby sucks often.
> The nose still clogged?
A very slight inflammation of the nasal mucous membranes can occur, and the openings at this level are so narrow that the smallest obstacle hinders infant respiration. It is for this reason that we advise to clean often the baby's nose.
Feeding a baby at 1 month
Milk and water should be the only food your baby absorbs.
The first days of breastfeeding may have been difficult, today it should get better. Your baby may have defined his rhythm. In principle, a baby of 1 month has 6 to 8 feedings per day, but breastfeeding can be done on demand.
Remember to give vitamin K to your child. This vitamin is absent from breast milk, and avoids the risk of bleeding. Follow your doctor's prescription, usually a 2 mg ampoule, once a week.
In principle, here are the quantities that your baby should take at this age: between 6 to 8 bottles of 90 ml of infant formula.
During the first days and weeks, it is important to monitor the child's weight gain, especially if he is breastfeeding. At first, it is not always easy to know for a young mother if the baby is feeding properly and breast-fed.
