Bringing Home Your Newborn From the Hospital

By Gabriella Gometra

The waiting and anticipation of the birth of a baby is an exciting time. The nine months it takes to create something so beautiful is worth the wait. It is worth the false alarms of Braxton-Hicks contractions. True labor contractions and needles from the IV are not fun but the baby is all worth it. The nurses coming in to look and poke at everything that was once private will not last long. The pushing out of a six to nine pound something with all the strength God gave is hard but after it is done the baby has arrived. After the baby’s birth there may still be some discomfort as the mom’s body adjusts back to normal. The baby has to go through some clean-up and tests. There is really no rest for mother or baby in the hospital. If it is a person’s first baby the nurses give information about how to change and feed the baby. Then in a couple of days or even less it is time to go home and start the adventure.

The nurses do not tell everything in the hospital. They tell the parents the basics of how the mom should take care of herself and get as much rest as possible. They do not tell about the baby crying and the parents trying everything to make the baby happy but nothing appearing to work, especially in the middle of the night when mom and dad are tired. If the mom has not returned to work but the dad has to get up early to provide for the family, the mom might want to consider staying up with the baby. The mom can sleep the next day whenever the baby sleeps. It seems easier said than done, especially if the mom is sensitive to light and the bright sun is telling her it is not time to sleep. The mom can try to keep the baby up in the daytime by letting in a lot of sunlight. Also making a lot of noise around the house to keep the baby from going into a deep sleep may work. The baby can take naps in the infant seat instead of laying down snug as a bug. It may be difficult the first several weeks to get the baby to get on a consistent schedule but it will change.

Doing other activities around the house like cleaning may seem nonexistent at this point. It is important for the parents of the new baby not to get overwhelmed with taking care of the baby and cleaning the house. The house should not be nasty but if it is a little out of order it is not the end of the world. The parents should focus on taking care of the mom and baby. Also if the baby has older brothers and sisters then that can be plenty to do. The older siblings have to adjust to the parents having a great deal of attention on the baby. The parents have to keep in mind that the older siblings have to get used to the new baby as well. They may want to pitch in and help by going to get a diaper or a blanket. Depending on the other kids’ ages they can help with chores around the house as well.

Bringing home the baby is an awesome time in a family’s life. It is not all about not getting sleep or getting anything done. It is a time to be joyful and thankful for the new addition to the family. Even through the seemingly stressful times the family still has to find peace and happiness. The family has to remember that the baby will not be a newborn forever and they will soon be wondering “where did time go” when the child starts to walk and talk.

Maybe Baby Educational DVDs don’t really work

Color me surprised. Another study has come out saying that educational videos for infants are not helpful, and in fact might be harmful. This latest study is set to be published in the Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine in May — and says that educational DVDs aimed at infants are not likely to help boost their word power.

Yes, I too am shocked (shocked!) that sticking your 1-year-old in front of the DVD player for an hour a day will not, in fact, turn her into a prodigy.

But, the APAM study is not the first of its kind — a study done almost three years ago by researchers at the University of Washington found similar results. Add that to an offer for refunds for the Baby Einstein videos this fall which, The New York Times notes, came after Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood complained to the Federal Trade Commission about marketing the videos as educational.

The better question may be not whether infant educational videos are beneficial, but why parents keep buying them.

One possible reason is that they seem to work.

Here’s why: The videos are recommended for babies 12 to 24 months old, and 18 months is generally when a child’s vocabulary naturally picks up and he starts learning and using more words. At 18 months, a child’s grasp of language expands at a markedly faster clip — so much so that researchers from the University of Iowa who looked at language acquisition during that age termed it the period of “vocabulary explosion.” So, it’s likely parents do see their baby’s vocabulary beginning to build, even if it had nothing to do with the videos.

Researchers in the APAM study did note at least one correlation with vocabulary scores: Infants who watched DVDs scored lower on a vocabulary test as children. Next vocabulary word up: irony.
