New Parents and Baby
Your baby is unique. As parents, the people most closely involved, you will come to know your baby best. Trust yourself. Most new parents are unsure of their parenting skills. These worries will soon disappear with experience. You will see that you can provide the proper nutrition and the love, warmth, and attention your baby needs. My staff and I are here to answer your questions and address your concerns as you build your confidence.

All babies sneeze, yawn, burp, have hiccups, pass gas, cough, cry and get fussy. These are normal behaviors. Sneezing is the only way that babies can clear their nose of lint, dust, and mucus. Hiccups are common little muscle spasms, but not painful. Crying is a baby's way of saying, "I'm tired," "I'm wet," "I want to be held," "I'm too hot," "I'm hungry." Gradually, you will learn what your baby means when she cries.

Because a baby's immunity is not very good in the first few months of life, it is a good idea to make an effort to minimize exposure to infection. This can be best done by not exposing your baby or anyone you know who has a contagious disease (including a cold or a flu virus), restricting visitors to select a group of special family and friends, and asking that everyone who is going to touch the baby to wash his hands thoroughly with soap and water or an alcohol-based handwashing solution. Other friends and relatives can visit you and the baby later.
