Development baby 0 weeks old:
There is not much to report yet, but still!
If your baby is 0 weeks old, there will of course not be many developments. Still, your newborn baby may already be more than you think! Although it is uncontrolled, your baby can already move with the arms and legs. The hands are often squeezed like small fists (how cute!).
Recognizes your smell and voice
In the womb your baby has already heard your voice frequently. That was not without reason. Now that your baby has left the warm bath, your voice is the only thing he or she still recognizes. That can be a great reassurance for your child. In addition, research shows that babies can recognize the smell of their own mothers from as many as 20 other mothers. Special right?
Feeding, defecating, sleeping
You do not have a lot of interaction with your baby the first weeks after birth. He or she sleeps 17 hours a day! Especially in the beginning it is mainly about the primitives needs: eating, pooping and sleeping. Every 3 hours your baby will announce that it is time for a new diet. In total he or she is awake for an hour and then go back to dreamland. Sleeping is not yet available in the coming weeks.
How is Mom doing?
How is our mother doing now that she has just given birth to her beautiful child? When it comes to your baby, your life will mainly consist of feeding your baby, changing and falling asleep together. In addition, you will also have to take a lot of rest. Your body has to defecate: you can have some cramps and after-effects the first days, you have blood loss, headaches and you can be forgetful and weepy. Nothing wrong with that. So make good use of your maternity help this week. He or she is nothing for nothing!
