Ten Little Fingers and Ten Perfect Toes Fill Our Hearts with Love That Overflows.
The arrival of a newborn is an exciting phase of life; a newborn represents hope and a promise of love. One of life’s most exciting—yet overwhelming—experiences is welcoming a newborn baby. Both the baby and the parents must adjust to a newer lifestyle that calls for patience during this period of adjustment. This transition needs support and care and a little help from professionals definitely eases out the responsibilities and that’s where trained and well-groomed baby care nurses play a significant role.
Breastfeeding gives babies a healthy start in life. Feeding a newborn is a round-the-clock commitment. It’s also an opportunity to begin forming a bond with the newest member in the family. Apollo Home Healthcare nurses are specially trained in the care of newborns and the mother in the promotion of lactation support.
According to research conducted with breastfeeding and bottle-fed children, leptin suppresses appetite, and infant serum leptin is positively correlated with maternal concentrations. Ghrelin, which stimulates appetite, is found in higher concentration in foremilk than in hind milk. This concentration difference may also contribute to the better self-regulation of intake in breastfed infants compared to formula-fed infants, and is thus a potential explanation for increased bottle-emptying behavior that is observed among bottle-fed infants.
