Mom sick

“Thinking my mom might die of cancer was the worst thing that ever happened to me,” Alen¬†writes. “It seemed like, up until then, I’d had a perfect, normal childhood living in the country with my big brothers, Jeb and Sean, and Mom and Dad.

“One day, normal changed at our house. My mom went to the doctor. When she got home she looked pale and serious. Mom and Dad told us kids that Mom had to go to a specialist for some tests but not to worry. I felt puzzled; what was going on here? No one seemed to know I was there. Usually our family blurts out everything. This time Mom and Dad were too quiet.

“The next few days were not like our house at all. Dad looked like he had been crying, and they said Mom had to go to the hospital.”¬†— Ben brack, co-author of Moms Don’t Get Sick

Soothing Your Preemie 0

An early delivery can be a stressful introduction to your baby. To help new parents navigate the neonatal intensive-care unit and nurture their little one’s development, Pediatrician William Sears, M.D., his wife, Martha, R.N., and sons Robert and James (both pediatricians as well) have written The Premature Baby Book. Here’s their advice for comforting your preemie at the hospital and at home.

Hop to it. Skin-to-skin contact, also known as “kangaroo care,” is a great way for parents to bond with their baby. Hold your child to your chest so that her bare skin is against yours (making sure that the room is warm enough or that you’re holding her with a blanket). Research suggests that this type of interaction may improve a preemie’s development. If her medical condition prevents you from holding her in the hospital, you can put your hands around her in the isolette to let her know you’re close by.
