Keep Your new born Hydrated

Appropriate clothing 


For newborns just wrap him/her in light muslin or cotton wraps and no heavy blanket. Use diapers only at night for the sound sleep of your newborn

For outdoors (especially in the evening), choose full-length dresses which will ensure the baby to get protected from bugs and insects                                        
                            
 

Prefer Cool Surroundings
