Do not rub the towel so hard that your baby feels pain.
Wear neat dress

Watch your eating
There is a quote which shows that, Eat to live, not live to eat. Our body is made up of different compositions. We need food to carry on those compositions and functionality of the system normally. When we come to the diet of newborns we must keep that in check. Newborns normally are fed through bottles called feeders. You should not feed them everything with one feeder. Have a collection of feeders for different types of feeding materials. Moreover, wash the feeders right after feeding. This will prevent smelling from the feeders.
You should also remove the nails of your baby when growing up. Cut nails when the baby is sleeping. Keep your baby’s private parts neat and clean otherwise, he may get an infection and cause trouble for you.
Babies can’t talk about their hygiene. He neither understands the purpose of cleanliness nor he can do it himself. It is the responsibility of the parents to keep them neat and clean.
Here is a quote about cleanliness;
“Cleanliness is not next to godliness. It isn’t even in the same neighbourhood. No one has ever gotten a religious experience out of removing burned-on cheese from the grill of the toaster oven.” ― Erma Bombeck
