Congratulations on you new arrival! You are about to begin one of life's great adventures, watching your infant grow and develop into a strong and healthy child.
During the next few days, most of your time will be spent in resting and regaining your strength. You can put this time to good use by getting to know some of the simple things that will help to make your life with baby easy and fuss-free.
Your child is an individual from the day he is born. We will be happy to give you guidance and answer your questions while you are in the hospital and later by phone and during your visits in the office. Do not depend on friends and relatives for advice, no matter how well meaning. Conflicting opinions and advice can only confuse you, and make the first few months of your infant's life more stressful than it needs to be.
