Preparing for a Hospital Stay: Infant (Birth-12 months) 

Fears: strangers, new places, separation from parents.

  • Bring familiar toys and security objects from home.
  • Incorporate your daily routines into treatment schedule.
  • Provide a quiet and soothing environment during stressful events (turn down lights, provide soft soothing music, and use rocking chairs).
  • Prepare yourself. If you are prepared, you will be more relaxed around your infant.
