    Newborn Baby Activities: Baby Games for Eye Development | Pampers

    I was surprised to learn that my baby can only see about 10 to 12 inches in front of his face. So we made sure to get in really close. We used toys with very simple patterns and high-contrasting colors to help his eyes learn how to focus. He liked when we move it very slowly and gently in front of him. At about four weeks, his eyes started to focus. So we started blowing bubbles for him to watch. And within a couple of weeks of that, he was following them around with his eyes. And by three months he was even beginning to reach for them. As he…

    A 48-hour global health challenge to save newborns

    There’s a certain amount of arrogance that comes with assuming you’ll make a serious impact to a real and complicated problem in 48 hours. Hackathons are the way to get doctors from one country, engineers from another, designers, people who don’t live in the same world; thinking about the same problem. It’s about starting something. I really believe that global health problems are not solved by charity. They are actually solved by sustainable business models and multi-disciplinary teams. There’s this crisis that happens worldwide every year that 1.8 million babies die from oxygen- depriving events at the time of birth. The vast majority of those are preventable. So this is…

    Newborn Horse Syndrome Suggests Links to Childhood Autism

    My name is Ellen Jackson, I’m the sole proprietor of Victory Rose thoroughbreds here in Vacaville. We raise about 70 to 80 foals a year. We also race them. The investment to raise a racehorse is quite large. So that’s why we put in so much to making sure the foal can be just as healthy as possible. We want to see the foal bright and alert, aware of the environment, sticking close to the mare, nursing, but the important thing is that it moves away from you. That’s the normal response because they’re prey animals. When we don’t see that, then we know there’s something wrong with the foal.…

    Newborn Care: How to Take Care of a Newborn Baby

    [MUSIC PLAYING] I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect in those first few weeks at home with my newborn. Overwhelming unconditional love, the intensity of emotion, was more than I expected. But as intimidating as the whole journey seemed, instinct kicked in, and being a parent quickly became the most natural thing in the world. Of course, I was tired from labor and delivery, but somehow it didn’t matter. As new parents, we were 100% focused on taking care of our new baby. Obviously, I tried to rest when my son rested, to eat well and be smart about visitors. I got some great advice from more experienced moms, and…
