Tips for Bringing Your Newborn Home

A new baby is a time of transition for families. Use these tips to help everyone make a smooth adjustment to the newest member in your family.

The years between bringing home a new baby through raising a young adult raise everyday parenting questions about topics from a toddler’s eating habits to teen friendships. In this new offering on Global Motherhood from the American Academy of Pediatrics and Johnson & Johnson, we support moms and dads as they explore the joys of parenthood.

The AAP is a professional membership organization of 60,000 primary care pediatricians, pediatric medical sub-specialists and pediatric surgical specialists dedicated to the health, safety, and well being of infants, children, adolescents and young adults. The Johnson & Johnson collaboration with the AAP has helped thousands of children through programs ranging from educational resources for parents in the United States, to global training programs for medical professionals.
