Newborn babies need parents to take care of all aspects after birth, especially the part of the newborn's umbilical cord. This part needs more care, and be careful not to get wet. Some parents are not very clear about how to take care of them, and want to know how to remove the newborn umbilical cord clamp?
Generally speaking, the umbilical cord clamp cannot be treated specially, because the umbilical cord will gradually fall off when the newborn is born, and parents need to do all aspects of nursing work. Pay attention to local disinfection every day, and avoid constant deduction or scratching, so as not to send out after infection. It is recommended that newborns have enough rest, and also pay attention to keeping the belly button clean and dry.
On the second day after the newborn is born, the umbilical cord bandage is removed, gently covered with sterile gauze, and replaced daily. If the umbilical cord stump is already dry, there is no need for gauze. Exposing the umbilical cord is beneficial to the drying and shedding of the umbilical cord. Before replacement, 75% alcohol should be used to disinfect the umbilical cord. Another thing that needs attention is when the skin around the stump of the umbilical cord has redness and swelling, or it must be able to discharge yellow and white pus. It is a sign of neonatal umbilical cord infection and should be sent to the hospital for diagnosis and treatment in time to avoid sepsis and neonatal tetanus.
When bathing the newborn, try to avoid splashing the bath water into the umbilical hole. Wipe and disinfect immediately after bathing. In this way, the umbilical cord can be protected from dryness, and it will also be of great benefit to the loss of the umbilical cord in the future.
