Being a mother for the first time means both joy and excitement. Mothers need a lot of support. Sema Hospital Pediatrics Specialist View Köksal's Full Profile shares suggestions for new mothers.

: What questions should the mother ask her doctor when she is discharged from the hospital?
Dr. Köksal Binnetoğlu: When you are discharged from the hospital, you should ask your doctor whether vitamin K and Hepatitis B vaccine is given or whether screening tests have been taken.

: What are your recommendations for breastfeeding?
Dr. Köksal Binnetoğlu:
• Feed your baby with breast milk for the first 6 months.
• Always wash your hands before breastfeeding your baby.
• Breastfeed your baby on average 8 times a day. It is enough to breastfeed 2-3 times at night.
• It is ideal to breastfeed both breasts for equal periods when breastfeeding the baby.
• When breastfeeding your baby, take a break for 3-4 minutes and make gentle touches to her back and let her gas off.

: What should be considered when changing the baby's diaper?
Dr. Köksal Binnetoğlu:
• A newborn baby wets his diaper on average 6 times a day. Change your baby's diaper as soon as it gets wet. It is useful to change the diaper frequently to prevent rash formation.
• You can use a suitable diaper rash cream if it is rash.
• Wipe the bottom of girls when cleaning from top to bottom.
• The feces of infants fed only breast milk vary from yellow to green. Your baby has a high number of stools in the first month (6-8 times a day). Breastfed babies are runny.

: How should umbilical care be performed?
Dr. Köksal Binnetoğlu: Do your baby's umbilical care as instructed by your doctor. The hub and its surroundings must remain clean and dry. 2-3 times a day from the bottom of the umbilical cord, wipe with alcohol cotton. The umbilical cord will fall within 2 weeks.

: What should the baby's room temperature be?
Dr. Köksal Binnetoğlu:
• Ensure that the temperature of the baby's room is 22-24 degrees on average.
• Lightly clothe the baby's arms and legs for comfortable movement and do not cover them with heavy covers. Dress headgear made of soft fabric on the head.

: How to cut the nails?
Dr. Köksal Binnetoğlu: Cut your baby's extended nails. Otherwise, your baby may scratch his face and the corneal layer in the eye. We advise you to get help from a person when cutting nails.

: When and how should your baby be first bathed?
Dr. Köksal Binnetoğlu: You can wipe your baby's bath until the umbilical cord falls. It is indigenous to wash your baby twice a week. Do not wash your baby on a full stomach may cause vomiting. Remember to wipe your baby's mouth, chin and genital area frequently with a wet, soap-free, soft cloth.

: When should the baby be first checked?
Dr. Köksal Binnetoğlu: One week after the birth, the pediatrician should be checked.
