Within the first few minutes of life, children start adapting to their new environment. In this program, we show how professionals use the Apgar test to assess a newborn's health and the significance of the first interaction between parent and newborn. We then follow the many physical, cognitive, and social changes that newborns experience on their journey through early infancy. We also explain the crucial role of sleep and nutrition in fostering development and offer guidelines for parents to provide the best possible care for their newborn.
