Many times mothers are forced to give birth to a premature baby because of a bad situation. One of the major problems for premature babies is low weight. Many doctors recommend kangaroo care for the weight gain of these children. If you take care of the baby in the chest for two hours every day covered with mattress, the baby will gradually increase in weight and within a few weeks the weight will return to normal.
2. Increases immune system capacity
It is often seen that the weight of the baby is right, but the immune system is on the floor. As a result, the child becomes weak and is easily attacked by life in the outer air. It can cause any kind of disease in the baby. The advantage of kangaroo care in this case is that it does not have to fight against the external hostility due to contact with the breast of the mother or father. In the meantime, the baby’s body begins to develop the necessary immunity through interaction.
3. Reduces stress
Newborn babies often cry and swing their moods. Kangaroo care strengthens the bonds of the mother or father with the child, while also easing the cry and easing the baby.
4. Keep the warmth just right
It is not possible for premature children to control the warmth of their own body. With kangaroo care, the baby gets the warmth of his father or mother directly and can balance the warmth. If the baby’s body is not warm enough, the body’s interactions are interrupted.
5. Improvement of the brain and nervous system
With Kangaroo Care, the baby’s brain cells and neurons are easily developed and nourishedImprovement of the brain and nervous system
Kangaroo Care also helps a child sleep better. According to experts, children fall asleep when they hear a mother or father’s heartbeat. In addition to premature babies, deep and adequate sleep for normal children is absolutely necessary for brain cell growth.
7. Breastfeeding production
Not only does this have an impact on the child, but the care also brings some positive changes to the mother. In addition to bonding with the mother through kangaroo care, it also helps to increase the breast milk production of the mother.
8. Reduce postpartum stress
Just as kangaroo care gives a child a sense of peace, so does the mother’s release from the stress. The mother is most worried about her upbringing. This care establishes an attachment to the child’s emotional feelings with the mother, which helps to reduce the mother’s stress.
With kangaroo care, it is not difficult to understand exactly how much milk a baby can breastfeed, or why she is crying even after weaning. As kangaroo care brings children and parents closer, the feeling between the two develops, and the emotional attachment develops. This is why doctors recommend taking this care even if the child has no problem.
