In the first hours of life of a baby experiences so many things for the very first time. She finally has the opportunity to see the mother whose voice has been keeping her company for so long. He experiences his first breath of air, his first touch, his first kiss, his first gaze. She has her first taste of food. But there are also some unpleasant things a newborn will experience – and a few of them involve the newborn screening tests.
Understanding the newborn screening tests, figuring out how to bathe your newborn, and getting your newborn to sleep on a relatively regular schedule are all part of the process and Dr. Greene’s Newborn Center is here to help.
