It might seem that your baby learns something new every day. In fact, every experience — from cuddling before nap time to listening to a sibling's chatter — helps your baby learn more about his or her world.

As your baby grows and changes, you might have new questions about infant health. How can you encourage your baby to sleep through the night? When should you introduce solid foods? When will your baby sit up? What are red flags for infant health?

Your baby's doctor is a great resource for learning more about infant health. Take advantage of other resources for infant health, too, such as nurse information lines. Above all, trust your instincts. When it comes to infant health, timing is critical. The earlier any problems are detected, the earlier treatment can begin.
