If you are entrusting your maid with caring for your newborn baby, do emphasize the fact that newborns are very fragile.
Show your helper how to pick up, carry, feed and bathe your infant, and get her to practice in your presence.
Instruct her to always support your newborn baby's head and neck when she is picking up, carrying or bathing your baby.
Also remember to give your maid clear instructions about your baby's sleep routine, including information on how to keep baby safe while sleeping — such as:
*monitoring the temperature in his/her room;
*ensuring there are no pillows or blankets that he/she could pull over his/her head;
*laying your baby flat on his/her back while sleeping;
*correct swaddling techniques, etc.
