Caring For Your Baby
Before your baby leaves the hospital, he has newborn screening tests. Once you’re home from the hospital, learn how put your baby to sleep safely and protect him from dangers, like sudden infant death syndrome (also called SIDS). As your baby grows, he gets medical checkups, vaccinations and his health care provider checks that he’s meeting developmental milestones. Plus a list of skills or activities that most children can do at a certain age, like sitting, walking and talking.
