Well Baby Nursery
After delivery, your baby can stay with you in your room as long as he/she doesn't require special attention. We promote family-centered care and encourage families to immediately bond with the baby. However, if you would like to rest, take a shower or just visit with family, your baby can be taken care of by our Well Baby Nursery staff. This nursery is staffed 24 hours a day.
Prior to your baby's discharge home, he/she will be given a hearing screen for early detection of hearing loss. A T4PKU will be obtained as well as newborn photo's with your consent. The staff realizes what an exciting time it is to welcome a new addition to your family. We urge you to ask questions and call for assistance when needed.

If your baby seems fussy and you’ve fed and changed him, he may have an upset stomach or colic. But don’t worry, there are lots of things you can do to make your little one more comfortable and keep both of you calm.
Though the name sounds like a disease, colic is really just a term for excessive crying in an infant. Unfortunately, nobody knows for sure what causes colic, but there are several theories and possible risk factors for the condition.
