I would hope...

most people knew this already, but I guess there does have to be a reason they offer classes on how to care for a newborn.

__ Always support her head with your arm or hand.

__ Make sure to keep one arm or hand under her back.

__ Use smooth, gentle, and gliding motions when picking her up or putting her down. Avoid any sudden, rough, or jerky movements.

__ Never shake your baby. Doing so can result in "shaken baby syndrome," which can cause blindness, brain damage, or death.

__ Don't cook or handle hot liquids while holding baby, even if she's in a baby carrier or sling.

__ Try different holds to comfort your baby.
