Dear Dads, Avoid The Following Things While Holding Your Baby

In contrast to the past where the mother was the one responsible for taking care of the baby, today fathers have equal responsibility to participate in nurturing and caring for the baby. This skin-to-skin contact allows them to build a stronger bond with their babies.

But since the baby's immune system is under-developed and the his/her skin is susceptible to infections, fathers should avoid the following while holding their baby;

1. If you have fever or cold, then you should avoid caring for the baby until the time you are completely recovered.

2. Avoid using fragrance or deodorant during skin-to-skin contact with the baby as it may irritate his/her delicate skin.

3. Make sure that your skin is free from rashes and allergies before making contact with the baby.

4. Do not smoke or drink alcohol prior to taking care of the baby.
