advice for hubuddie

From what I've learned these past 10 days, there are 4 keys to taking care of a newborn baby:

1 -- keep baby fed.  Nature has assigned this job to my wife.

2 -- keep baby in clean diapers.  You've got to change them umpteen times a day.  In our family, this is mostly my job.  It's actually not as disgusting as I was afraid it would be.

3 -- keep baby soothed and comfortable.  Basically this means hold the baby, talk to the baby, sing to the baby, etc.  Let baby know that you're there and you love her, so that she feels safe and not afraid of the big world.  In my family, everyone happily does this job!

4 -- keep baby clean.  Give her a bath every other day or so (sometimes more often, sometimes less often, depending on how dirty she gets).  This is really a pain before the umbilical cord falls off, cause you can't put the whole baby into the water.  

And then of course, there are special concerns, such as if baby gets sick.  But I'd say if you keep those 4 basic things in mind, you're off to a good start.

i love babies too!

those days i love to look at the children in the streets, in the parks. oh, it is great pleasure to see them dancing, talking, even crying.
haha. does it mean that i am getting old? or it simply means i am loving kids more.

Congratulations HeDan

...on such an exquisite baby girl.  Such a wonderful happiness.  

I had a baby boy on Jan. 2 in Haikou, Hainan, which is why I haven't been around much lately.  But he's a heck of a lot more fun than CD!
