In this session, we discussed the transitions that take place from birth to 18 months, including changes in sleep, social-emotional changes, emerging personality, and moving from exclusively bottles to just solids. We also talked about important milestones and ways to support infant and family throughout these transitions as a newborn care specialist. This session was particularly informative as Stefanie shared so many insightful examples from her years of experience.
