Before going to bed, I will limit caffeine intake, and decrease stimulation such as noise, light, and temperature. I am also willing to try melatonin supplements, which can promote better sleep.

During the first month of pregnancy the amniotic sac forms around the baby. The amniotic sac is filled with fluids that protect the baby throughout the pregnancy.

Having nurses up to date on safety standards allows them to teach new families proper information they need to know for infant safety before being discharged from the hospital. All parents should ensure that any caregiver looking after their newborn knows that putting the baby down in the supine position to sleep is the safest for all children under one year of age (Meadows-Oliver, 2013). Many young and new caregivers are not able to receive proper information prior to their newborn being born so it is important to get in as much teaching as possible before they get go

By doing this, the baby has had the chance to get used to breastfeeding, and the work that they must do to feed correctly.

According to Stevens, Patrick & Pickler (2009) Breastfeeding was used as a method of safe infant feeding since bottles or formula use did not exist. Wet nursing was defined as, "a woman who breastfeeds another's child" (Davis, 199 3, p. 2111).
