10 signs your newborn is in good health

Just given birth to your newborn and totally engrossed in parenting duties?
The first few days with your little one brings a lot of tension about whether
your baby is perfectly fine or not. You find your parenting skills are just not
that good to understand whether your baby is just plain cranky or has some
problem. Whether your baby is just crying because he or she is hungry or has
some major health issue. All these things become a big and constant point of

10 Important Signs Of A Healthy Baby

Here are some important signs that help you to ensure your
baby is perfectly healthy and fine, even though they do get cranky very often:

  1. You
    change more than 3-4 diapers a day:
     A very common
    question that bothers the majority of the mothers of a newborn is whether
    their baby is receiving an adequate supply of milk that is actually needed. The best
    proof your baby is getting adequate milk are these wet diapers. You can be
    well assured your little one is perfectly fine from the umpteen diapers
    you change every day

  2. Baby
    is attentive and peaceful at least a few times every day:
     This is
    the biggest proof that your little one is slowly beginning to observe the
    world around her and growing slowly. Once they turn a month old, their
    waking hours are more and they start looking and observing things
    happening around them

  3. Your
    baby suckles strongly:
     Newborn babies enter this world with a
    reflex for suckling and if you find that your little one suckles your
    breast strongly and frequently, you can be rest assured, your darling is
    perfectly healthy as this is an indication of normal digestive growth

  4. The little one starts responding to various sounds: A normal and healthy
    baby begins responding to different sounds around him or her as the days
    pass by. Music, TV sounds and even toys begin attracting your little one’s
    attention which are all signs that let you understand that the little
    one’s hearing system is developing well

  5. Regular
     Pooping regularly is yet another positive
    indication of your baby’s healthy growth. Although the frequency of
    pooping reduces as the little one grows older, it is perfectly okay even
    if your little one poops just once a week if the stools are soft. If your
    little baby is comfortable even though he or she does not poop every day,
    it is fine, you need not worry

  6. Proportionate
    weight and height:
     A perfectly normal and healthy baby normally
    gains double the weight within the first five months and it is
    almost tripled when they reach their first birthday. Your doctor would be
    the best person to ensure that the height and weight of your little one is
    proportionate to her growth in every way. This is yet another sign that
    your little one is perfectly healthy and growing desirably well

  7. The
    little one becomes quiet at your touch and recognizes your sound:
    is no doubt about the fact that newborn babies cry all the time and this
    makes you all the more tensed. However, as they begin bonding with the
    mother, they start recognizing your voice and also become quite calm when
    you pick them up. This is definitely a healthy sign that helps you to
    understand that your baby is growing up mentally and emotionally

  8. Babies
    begin to slowly support their weight by themselves:
     Once your
    little darling is a month old, they slowly start holding their head
    up even though for a brief time period. By the time she or he is three
    months old; they start holding up well and even begin shifting
    while they are in your arms. All these are definite signs that your baby
    is growing well. This shows your little one’s muscles are getting stronger

  9. Their
    sleep pattern becomes more regular:
     As your little one’s nervous
    system develops slowly, you will find a slight glimmer of a routine as far
    as your baby’s sleeping pattern is concerned. They begin
    sleeping for more hours at a stretch during nighttime. However, some
    babies do take some more months to get there. All this implies your baby
    is perfectly hale and hearty

  10. Your
    darling starts making eye contact and also smiles:
     This is the
    best proof that ascertains your little one is growing to become a happy
    and social being. Once your baby crosses a month, they begin having eye
    contact with people, especially you, and start smiling when you talk to him
    or her. They begin cooing and gurgling and all this indicates he or she is
    growing perfectly well

All the above are excellent pointers to ensure your precious
little darling is perfectly healthy and normal in every sense of the word. So
sit back and relax and enjoy your newborn. Spending a few weeks with your little
one will help you differentiate between his hunger cries and the ones when
something is wrong. You will also get pro at knowing how your baby prefers to
be rocked and burped. You will definitely gain more confidence about your
parenting skills.
