When the little angel in each family arrives, parents will treat it with a very good and excited mood, and the hospital will take a series of actions to protect the baby.
The first pass of the newborn is the doctor’s arrangement, and the nurse will take the baby to do the relevant collection work, such as leaving the baby’s small footprints.
Many parents do not understand or understand this operation, why collect the baby’s footprints? What is the purpose of this operation?
Newborns will leave their own small footprints, and the mother has questions
Xiaoyu finally unloaded successfully after a long October pregnancy, and although her body was particularly weak after giving birth, this equipment disappeared after seeing the child.
When she just woke up and wanted to see her baby, the nurse next to her said that the baby was now taken to collect footprints, and Xiaoyu knew that collecting footprints could be to prevent the child from being confused.
But Xiaoyu was still a little curious, so she asked the nurse, “Then why not a handprint?” After listening, the nurse patiently replied: “The baby has just been born, and the little hand is holding it too tightly, and forcibly breaking it will hurt the baby!” ”
Xiaoyu’s heart was immediately relieved when she heard this, she had indeed heard about the incident of holding the wrong child in the early years, which brought great harm to both families, and the hospital’s doing this was also a manifestation of responsibility for the child and parents.
It is more convenient for the doctor to leave a child’s footprints than a handprint
As Xiaoyu asked, many parents have questions, aren’t children’s handprints better than footprints? After all, almost everywhere is now left with handprints.
But there are two key points, which are also unknown to everyone, children’s small hands are not easy to open, not like their little feet are always stretched, so it is more convenient to operate.
Another point is that footprints are actually clearer than handprints, and the clearer the context, the more helpful it is to identify accidents, so leaving footprints is the best of both worlds.
Doctors won’t tell parents why they left footprints, but parents need to know about them
* Avoid parents and doctors holding the wrong child, prevent baby loss
Everyone must have heard of a major accident similar to holding the wrong child, which was also reported in the news earlier, and it took 28 years to find out that although the child has no external harm, it is difficult to accept it internally.
The hospital will leave small footprints on the newborn baby to prevent doctors and parents from holding the baby by mistake, so that the child will not be lost.
* Keep a souvenir for your baby
When the child grows up, parents can also give this cute little footprint to the baby as a souvenir gift, so that the child must cherish and feel novel.
* Child’s birth certificate
Children need a birth certificate after birth, and although the hospital will have a paper version of the birth certificate, it is not as good as the actual image of the small footprint.
Every family will have a moment to welcome their baby, but when welcoming the baby, it is also necessary to help the baby do a good job of protection.
Parents of newborns need to pay attention to
* Remember what your child looks like and avoid holding the wrong child
After the baby is born, parents are most afraid that the baby will be held wrong, I believe that any parent feels the same way, and does not want such a thing to happen.
So in order to avoid such a situation, the most critical point is that parents need to remember the appearance of their children, and then they can effectively avoid accidents.
*Be sure to check your child
Although most newborns are healthy, parents should not take the physical examination of their children lightly, and if there is any problem with the child, they can be diagnosed and treated in time.
The most fearful thing is that parents do not conduct a comprehensive examination of the child at the first time, resulting in serious illness when the child grows up, which is very harmful to the child’s future.
Every mother has gone through a lot of hardships to bring her baby into this world, and the family has been working hard to follow suit, everyone must be responsible for every detail of the child!
