All About Your Newborn

What gift has Providence bestowed on man that is so dear to him as his children?

Congratulations on the arrival of your new baby! The day you take your newborn home is exciting—and probably a little scary. You'll have lots of questions during the days and months ahead. This online book contains a lot of information, but it is not meant as a substitute for professional medical care. If you have questions or concerns, talk with your physician.

Throughout this online booklet, we've used the term "physician" to refer to the health care provider who will care for your baby. Depending on your choice, that person may be a family practice physician, pediatrician or nurse practitioner.
