Music and your baby

Music and.jpg

Why is music important for our babies? Your baby starts to hear about 18 weeks gestation and can respond to voice and music at around 24 weeks. So why is it important to play music for our babies after they are born? The American Academy of Pediatrics has shown that:

  • Maternal singing is soothing (despite your talent)

  • Scientific research has shown rhythm and pitch enhances learning and recall—think of the alphabet song!

  • Music is so effective in reducing anxiety

  • Music can improve your mood

  • Music (especially lullabies) can help your baby sleep

  • Music can decrease stress levels

What kind of music did you play during pregnancy? What does your baby enjoy now?

Would you know what to do if your baby stopped breathing? As a new parent you already are stressed about the arrival of your baby, being prepared could be the difference between life and death.

Why would my baby need CPR?

  • Suffocation

  • Choking

  • Near drowning

  • Smoke inhalation

  • Head trauma or serious injury

  • Electrical shock

  • Obstructive apnea

  • Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)

  • Excessive bleeding

  • Lung disease

  • Poisoning

Already trained in Adult CPR? Infant CPR is different in which you use your fingers instead of the palm of your hand. CPR is the most successful when it is performed as soon as possible!

Top 5 reasons to hire a postpartum home visit RN

Home visits can bridge the gap between nursery care and primary care. Here are 5 reasons to hire a RN for postpartum visit!

1.  Reducing parent stress and anxiety levels

2.  Improve mother-child interactions and positive stimulation for babies

3. Increased breastfeeding rates! Mothers who were visited by nurses at home were more likely to breastfeed, and they felt more confident about their parenting skills than those seen at physicians' offices.

4. Prevention/early detection of post partum depression

5.  Help parents provide safe and supportive environments for the family.

Providing health-care services through home visit is an effective way to prevention, early detection, and management of postpartum depression. Visits can improve the safety of the home environment! We will assure that our baby is sleeping safely and you have a safe environment for your newborn. Home nursing visits may be a practical way to ensure maternal and infant health after discharge!
