How you can help your baby grow and develop.

From the time your baby is admitted to the nursery until the time he goes home, you are an important part of his care. You may help your baby by giving him the kinds of experiences that will support his developmental progress. That means treating your baby in the ways that are correct for his age, medical condition and state of alertness. Learning to recognize when he is tired and needs to rest, learning how and what kind of touch he likes, and helping him to learn to calm himself are just a few of the ways you can begin to support his development. Please remember that the nursery staff is immediately available to answer your questions and assist you in any way possible as we work together toward your baby's recovery.
