Newborn Care DVD and Website
- New Information For 2013
Newborn care is a topic
widely discussed by both new parents and pediatricians. We see about
forty newborns a month in our practice. What we have found over the
years is that the families ask the same questions regarding the care of
their newborns. As pediatricians with over 50 years experience, we felt
it would be helpful to make a newborn care video to address these
questions. Knowledgeable and prepared parents are more relaxed and can
enjoy the experience with their newborn to the fullest. In the newborn
video, we will discuss common topics and answer the most frequently
asked questions to help prepare new parents for this great new

In our pediatric
practice, parents of newborns range from calm to anxious. We
have created a framework that illustrates how parents are
feeling when faced with questions and challenges of newborn
care. We call this framework "Parental Comfort Zones" (tm). The
goal of the newborn care video and website is to educate and
prepare new parents for the challenges they are going to face
and transition them into a healthy "Zone".
The newborn care
video will start by discussing the preparation for the newborn's
arrival and cover topics including choosing a pediatrician,
questions to ask your obstetrician, and how to prepare the house
for a newborn. We have created a download list of what to bring
to the hospital as well as what to have at home to help prepare
for your newborn's arrival.
The newborn video
will also cover common topics including newborn feeding. This is
the most common topic that is discussed in our pediatric office
and the most commonly searched newborn term on the internet.
Another topic of concern for parents is newborn crying, which
can be very frustrating and scary to new parents without much
experience in this area. Our newborn video will educate you in
some of the causes of crying, which may include newborn colic, a
poorly misunderstood behavior of a newborn.
Newborn jaundice is
another topic of great interest. A significant number of
newborns will have jaundice, which will be followed by your
pediatrician. Our video will discuss the relationship of newborn
jaundice and weight loss, which may reduce a new parent's
anxiety for this very common issue.
concern by parents is how frequently their newborn spits up.
Although usually harmless, newborn reflux can have some
potential problems for the baby and what a pediatrician may be
concerned about is highlighted in our video.
We all like to
sleep, and some of us appreciate it more than others. After your
newborn arrives, you will appreciate the sleep you get that much
more! On the newborn video, newborn sleeping patterns are
discussed as well as when to consult your pediatrician for
specific newborn sleep issues.
An important subject to discuss
when speaking of newborn sleep is SIDS (Sudden Infant Death
Syndrome). Our video discusses the latest strategies to decrease
the occurrence of this terrible event.
A common topic in
the media surrounding newborns and infants is vaccinations. Our
video will discuss the latest recommendations of newborn
Our newborn care
website will provide you with a bulletin board community to
share your questions with other visitors, which may be helpful
in your journey into parenthood. In addition, we have given you
a great newborn care resource directory which will provide
useful information during this new time of your life. We hope
you enjoy our newborn care Website.
We will consistently update
the Website with information to help new parents ease into
parenthood and maximize their enjoyment of this incredible
experience. Remember, always consult your pediatrician if
concerned about your newborn.
