Free Parenting Ebooks: CARING FOR YOUR NEWBORN

Free Parenting Ebooks: CARING FOR YOUR NEWBORNCongratulations on the birth of your baby! Whether you’re a first time parent or a veteran, a newborn baby is always a wonder.
This booklet provides an overview of some of the special characteristics you may notice about your newborn, and guides you through the basics of infant care. It will also help you recognize potential health concerns with your baby, and know when to seek medical help.

Keep in mind that no booklet can replace the advice and care you receive from a doctor and other health care providers. We encourage you to consult with your baby’s doctor any time you have questions or concerns about your baby’s health.
