Newborn care is important for the development of healthy life of a baby. In this article, the factors affecting newborn-care practices in rural Bangladesh was investigated. For this, a community-based cross-sectional study was conducted among 360 samples of postnatal mothers who visited the EPI centers, Tangail district. The mean age of the respondents was 24 (?4.4) years. Eighty percent of deliveries were conducted at home either by unskilled family members or by relatives. Umbilical cord of 40% newborns was cut by skilled persons; 56% of the mothers gave colostrums and 79% initiated breastfeeding within one hour of birth. The chi-square and multivariate analysis showed that newborn care is a correlate of education, number of living children, access to media , accessibility and wealth index, (p<0.001). Since substantial neonates die within one week of birth, new born care will be an important determinant of the reduction of infant mortality in rural Bangladesh.
