New born babies are very susceptible to infections. During childbirth the liquids in the birth canal can be swallowed by the baby, which may result in bacterial or viral infections. Immunity power of the newborns is very low, making a fine ground for the sickness to blossom quickly.
What is pneumonia?
Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs caused by any one of several viruses and bacteria. The lungs become inflamed and filled with fluid, causing cough and making it harder to breathe.
Best Home Remedy to Avoid Pneumonia in newborn babies
When I delivered my first child my granny strictly told me to keep the baby in sunlight for at least 10 minutes daily. Keeping your baby in the early morning sunlight will kill all the bacteria and viruses; the baby has caught during the birth or in the womb.
If a normal baby (born either through normal delivery or C-Section procedure) is allowed to freely absorb early morning sunlight (from 6:00 a.m till 8:00 a.m) for 10 minutes daily, at least for 15 days (post birth), can reduce the chances of getting affected by Pneumonia.
How to keep the baby in sun
At the onset find a place where you can get early morning sunlight both in your hospital (as you will be in the hospital post-delivery for at least 3 days) as well as at your home.
Every day (if possible at the same time) keep your baby scantily clad in direct sunlight. Let all the body parts of your baby absorb sunlight. Don’t worry early morning direct sunlight(from 6:00 am till 8:00 a.m) will not harm your baby’s skin or any other body part in any manner. It can only do well for your baby. Just be aware that the place, where you keep your baby, should be neat, clean, free from rodents, mosquitoes, animals or any other dangerous things that can harm the baby. The baby should spend minimum ten minutes in UV Rays, daily. Once the sunlight’s intensity is stronger, i.e post 9:00 a.m it is not advisable, for the babies to be kept in sunlight.
By following this routine for at least 15 days(post birth) you will help eliminate approximately 90% chances of your baby getting affected by Pneumonia.
These facts and experiences will seldom be shared by your doctors but believe me they surely work miracles, when followed.
I hope this remedy helps all the new mothers as it helped me.
