Sleep-related deaths are the leading cause of infant mortality for children from birth to 1 year of age. Our new clinical practice guideline, Newborn Safe Sleep, was made possible through an unrestricted grant from Pampers, part of the P&G family.
This downloadable guideline

- covers the history of sleep-related deaths and the American Academy of Pediatrics’ safe sleep recommendations between 1992 and 2016

- empowers NICU nurses to model safe sleep practices with neonates and infants in their day-to-day.
Developmental Care of Newborns and Infants offers evidence-based guidelines for interdisciplinary, developmentally supportive caregiving for infants and their families, beginning with contemplation of the birth and continuing through the delivery room and neonatal intensive care unit experiences, the transition to home, and the time following discharge.
Essentials of Neonatal Nursing: Orientation Lecture Series provides a comprehensive orientation to neonatal nursing care, helping new nurses identify basic elements of the NICU patient’s physiology and pathophysiology and apply necessary nursing interventions.
