United States Air Force Child Care Center Infant Care Guide.
Craig, Ardyn; And Others
Intended to guide Air Force infant caregivers in providing high quality group care for infants 6 weeks to 6 months of age, this infant care guide must be used in conjunction with other Air Force regulations on day care, such as AFR 215-1, Volume VI (to be renumbered AFR 215-27). After a brief introductory chapter (Chapter I), Chapter II indicates the importance of parent caregiver communication and ways caregivers can provide information to and obtain information from parents. Chapter III describes the ideal Air Force infant caregiver in terms of knowledge of infant development, enjoyment of and affectionate interaction with infants, reliabliity and consistency in caregiving, additional personal attributes, and management skills. Individualized schedules are discussed and guides for infant feeding, diapering, and napping are provided in Chapter IV. Chapter V guides caregivers in establishing a learning environment for infants less than 6 months old. Guidelines for detecting illnesses, diseases, and skin conditions of infants are given in Chapter VI. The final chapter (Chapter VII) indicates procedures to be implemented in medical emergencies involving infants. (Author/RH)
