Today, babies have more opportunities than ever before to grow into healthy children, adolescents, and adults. Each year in the US, more than four million babies are born.

Advances in medical research, the advent of new vaccines and medications, and the development of new technologies have helped improve the healthcare of both well and sick newborn babies.

Further, innovations in baby care equipment have made the tasks of caring for babies much easier.

A newborn baby brings many joys as well as many questions. Along with the happiness parents feel with the birth of their child, they often have concerns about his or her health and how to properly care for their child.

Fortunately, there are many knowledgeable healthcare professionals to guide you and teach you, as parents and caregivers, about your new baby. With their help, you can become confident in your own abilities and knowledge as you love and care for your newborn.
