Nutrition in the newborn

Try to give breast milk for as long as possible.
Breastfed babies should be fed at least 8–12 times in 24 hours. If your baby is asleep, wake him up to feed him with movements such as changing clothes, tickling feet, rubbing his back.
Breast milk may not be enough for the first few weeks. Take enough time to breastfeed and be patient.
Sometimes it may be necessary to bottle feed. (Especially if your baby is losing weight, has significant jaundice and is not getting breast milk well)
If necessary, the baby can be fed hourly, as he cries.
Most babies can extract only a small amount of the milk they have sucked. If he’s pooping frequently, keep his head elevated for 30 minutes after feeding. Small amounts of extraction are harmless. It does not prevent the child from gaining weight and is painless. These vomiting ends between 6-9 months.
Hold the baby upright with his tummy against your chest after each feeding. Stroke his back slowly for 2–5 minutes. It helps the baby to burp and pass gas. It may not produce gas after each feeding.
Do not keep the bottle in the baby’s mouth all the time.
Do not add grain to the bottle.
There is no need to give extra water to the breastfed baby.
Do not give honey until 12 months of age.
