Newborns are fascinating people. The nurse helps the family discover all the wonderful things the new baby is able to do, and information about caring for a new baby. She can also answer questions about sleeping, crying, feeding, and loving the new member of the family.
If you are a parent of a child, you are invited to participate in our Follow Me program. Registered nurses, social workers and dietitians provide visits where it is convenient for you. We have information about:
- Growth and development screenings
- Breastfeeding information and support
- Parenting concerns

Just In Time - Parenting and development for each age; America's Research-based Learning Network.
As the baby grows, the nurse provides regular screenings that help parents identify how their child is growing. The home visitor provides:
- Regular growth and development evaluations
- Assistance with parenting concerns and development of positive parenting skills.
- Suggestions for fun things to do with their children to help in all areas of development including social skills, language development and physical development.
