A proper bath should not be given to the baby until the umbilical cord falls off
The moment the newborn baby reaches home you need to take care of all their needs and this includes feeding and cleaning and how often. Till the point of time, the stump from an umbilical cord falls off to make sure that you do not give a proper bath to your baby. The best way you can clean the baby is to give a sponge bath and ensure that the sponge is not that wet but damp. Discuss with your doctor on how to take care of the stump of the umbilical cord and no need to pull it down. It is going to fall down with the passage of time.

As a new mother, you will be engrossed in feeding your baby, but some help from the baby would not be a bad idea. The baby is expected to be with you for most of h feeding session. Though you are not sure whether the baby is full or not you can go on to locate subtle signs. When they are hungry they are going to be full and if they are full would turn off the breast.
The nails of the newborn are known to grow very fast
Do not fall into the trap of the nails of the newborn as they are known to grow very fast. They are fragile and they might look as thin as paper but on the real front, they can go in a rapid manner. For the first few weeks or even months, you might be scared to trim those nails as you might accidentally end up harming the baby. When the baby is sleeping you can trim those nails with the help of a nail clipper.
Newborn sleep with their eyes open
