Newborn

General Appearance of Newborns

We’ve all seen the rarely complicated TV and movie births that show the delivering mom ridiculously pulled together – makeup neat and not a hair out of place. After a few minor pushes and groans, out pops baby (who is incidentally in reality several months old) nice and clean and neat.

If you’ve given birth or been present during a delivery, you know exactly how mom and baby really look. Baby emerges bluish, covered in blood and cottage cheesy goop and perhaps a little or a lot worse for wear. So the fact that your newborn doesn’t resemble the “Hollywood” norm shouldn’t surprise you.

Parenting Education

Stick to your guns! As parents, you’ll have many new and wonderful experiences with your little ones. From infancy through adolescence, you may often find yourself at a loss on how to handle some of the most exasperating experiences you encounter. Bedtime, potty training and healthy eating are but a few topics that we find many of our parents appreciate general guidance on. These articles are an excerpt from the book Positive Discipline A-Z by Jane Nelsen, Lynn Lott and H. Stephen Glenn.
