When a baby born he/she needs proper care, handling a newborn baby is difficult for mothers mainly for those who belong to rural areas. First seven days of child birth is very difficult to handle any child. Most of the mothers don’t know how to take care of their babies, so in this case harmful side effects may occur. When babies given to mothers by doctors are nurses, mother do not know about what to do and how to take care of their babies, so they make a lot of mistakes which are very harmful for their babies. So study this case in detail we make a survey, we ask questions to mother of those babies who was newly born or under 6 months of age. This assignment/survey done in a BVH Bahawalpur. In this survey we ask different type of questions related to child birth, as at the time of delivery mother was in which situation, after delivery ,they give bath to baby, feeding. After these questions we find results and it was like breast feed, vernix removal and treat, some these types of points was common in answers given by mothers. But o n the other case due to less knowledge mothers was not aware with this that they have to clean their selves and use proper medication for cleaning purposes of beds and wards also.
