Since I entered the age of marriage, I can see the good news of my relatives and friends having a baby on various social networks at regular intervals. Every time I see such good news, as a good friend and classmate, besides envy and blessing, I wish I could hug the baby immediately or even shake it for a few minutes.
Wait a minute! Visiting new babies and new mothers is not as casual as visiting them at ordinary times. There is a lot of knowledge in it.
Different families have different taboos. If you don’t pay attention to them, it will easily cause embarrassment and trouble. Therefore, before deciding to visit, you should communicate with your new mother and make the following arrangements:
1. Is what Time Suitable?
Unless they are close relatives, it is generally not recommended to visit the baby immediately before the full moon. First, the new mother is extremely weak at this time and should be given sufficient rest time to recover her strength. Second, the new mother does not want the guests to see the mess in the home. Third, the baby was only born, and the small family was scrambling to go through various procedures and prepare various utensils at this time. If they visit now, it will cost them more energy.
2. Is what’s gift suitable?
There are only two principles here:
(1) Don’t send [health food]. Think about it. After nine months of all-round bombing of health food, the new mother will definitely collapse if she sees anyone carrying such a lot of things to send her.
(2) It is best not to buy flowers. Some babies may be allergic to pollen, and no one wants the baby to get sick because of the gifts he gives.
Make an appointment, buy a good gift, and finally arrive at the new mother’s house. Give a hug to your best friend immediately, then pinch the baby’s little cheek, and then……
Stop! To be a good guest, there are still many rules for visiting new mothers and babies.
1. Hygiene is the most important thing
You know, a healthy person [lurks] hundreds of millions of bacteria and viruses. Because of our health and strong resistance, these bacteria and viruses are at peace with us for the time being.

(1) Do not visit when you are ill;
(2) Wash hands before contacting new mothers and babies;
(3) Don’t smoke;

(2) Don’t wake the baby

STEP 3 Do the Right Position
For a newly born baby, the cervical spine and muscles of the neck are not yet mature. When picking up the baby, besides being stable, attention should also be paid to holding the baby’s neck and small buttocks with hands.
Special attention should be paid to the fact that don’t neglect safety in order to tease the baby and don’t shake the baby at will, which may cause serious consequences such as intracranial hemorrhage to the baby.
