The Newborn – [Introducing Section 10]

Change is a keyword when it comes to babies. Not only do newborns change the lives of their parents and siblings, they also change physically, almost on a daily basis during the first few months. This chapter focuses on the changes connected with a baby—the physical changes that begin at the moment of birth, the changes in health that may or may not be signals for concern, and the changes that you must make to your home and lifestyle. This section also discusses some of the new things that you must learn to take care of a baby (such as making many diaper changes), as well as the basic things that you may need to keep him fed, clothed, and happy.
