Coping with Crying

It is normal for babies to cry a lot and it can be difficult to manage the stress when you can’t help them to stop. Learn ways to help you cope with their crying with safe and helpful strategies.

Count the Kicks

During pregnancy, a change in your baby’s movement, whether a decrease or rapid increase, is sometimes the earliest or only indication that your baby should be checked by your health care provider. Counting the kicks and other movements of your baby is an easy way to check on your baby’s well-being. Learn more and use the free app.

Babies should be placed alone, on their back, on a firm sleep surface in a crib. Learn more about ways to keep your baby safely asleep. 

Water Safety

Water safety for babies and children is critical, especially in Florida where we have pools, the ocean, bathtubs, and many other bodies of water. It’s important to know how you can protect your family from drowning.
