The big day has finally arrived and you’ve welcomed your new little one into the world. Congratulations! Now it’s time to get down to the business of parenting. It may not always be easy (just ask your own parents) but it’s worth every minute.
Infants are remarkably resilient but also remarkably fragile. They’re totally dependent on you. That’s a big responsibility and you want to do the best job you can for your new baby. You want to feed them the right foods, care for them when they’re sick, keep them safe, and give them the best possible start in life.
Babies aren’t just tiny adults. Their needs are different than ours – different foods, different activities, different medicines, and more. As a proud new parent, it’s your job to meet those needs. The Safe Birth Project knows you’re up to the challenge and we’re here to back you up.
