Your Baby's First Few Weeks

Congratulations! You've just brought home the most precious gift in the world -- your baby. Like most new parents, you may be anxious about how to care for the newest member of the family. This is a time of discovery for both parents and baby. You will quickly learn how to be a nurturing parent, and the child will begin learning about the world from the security of being in your arms or hearing your soothing voice. Have fun and enjoy this very exciting time in your life!

You And Your Body
