“New moms always worry about their babies’ eating pattern, sleep schedule, regarding right breastfeeding positions for the baby, correct massaging techniques, how to hold the new-born, diapering and bathing techniques. Through these interactive sessions, all the queries of the parents were addressed with effective solutions,” concluded Dr Bhoir.
