A friend of mine is doing some research to help change the way they do things at their hospital's newborn nursery. She needs information on first baths (what to wash with), cord care (what to use), first feeding (what to feed...believe it or not, their orders are still for first feed with D5W), bili checks, glucose checks, hypoglycemia. We have found out quite a bit online, but would love to know what other hospitals in the US do in their nurseries! Of course...if you don't mind sharing! Thanks so much!
