Visiting a pediatrician shouldn't only be for when your baby is sick! Well-baby visits are important even if your little one seems happy and healthy. These check-ups can help track growth and development and identify any issues early on.

You know smoking around your baby is dangerous, but did you know they can be harmed even if they aren't in the room when you are smoking? Don't smoke around any items that your baby will sleep with, like clothes and bedding. Secondhand smoke will put them at risk of SIDS.

Safe sleep is simple! Baby should sleep alone - this means without any toys, blankets, pillows, or other people. They should sleep on their back, in a crib/bassinet/playpen.

Your baby should sleep separate from you, but that doesn't have to mean far away! Put baby's crib, bassinet, or playpen next to your bed.

Scheduling your birth early for non-medical reasons could cut your baby's growth and development short! A normal, healthy pregnancy should wait to begin labor on its own!
