First Days Home: Keeping Your Baby Healthy and Happy. Study Guide [and Videotape].
Schrank, Louise Welsh
Noting that today's short hospital stays leave almost no time for educating parents on caring for a newborn, this viewer's guide and videotape explore what to expect the first month after birth. The first part of the viewer's guide presents an overview of the videotape and suggestions for discussion and research in the context of a parenting class. The second part of the guide contains a posttest for after viewing the videotape. The videotape provides practical information on: (1) newborn's appearance; (2) breastfeeding; (3) formula feeding; (4) sleeping patterns; (5) crying and comforting, including symptoms of colic; (6) bathing, diapering, and dressing; (7) newborn health, including jaundice and immunizations; (8) and safety, including cribs, car seats, and toy selection.
