Whether or not this is your first child, having a baby can be a challenging and exciting time. You are getting used to new demands, learning a lot of new things, and your body is going through some pretty incredible changes. That is why at Utah Valley Pediatrics our goal is to help educate you about the new stuff, hold your hand through the hard stuff, and calm your fears during the scary stuff.

To help answer some of your questions and to give you an idea of what to plan for, we have pulled together the following resources on newborns. Sources include articles from own blog, handouts from our doctors, and other carefully vetted online sources. If you have any other questions, please give your pediatrician a call.
