forget the risk for disorganized infant behavior and readiness for enhanced organized infant behavior r/t immature physiological/neurological systems aeb difficulty maintaining quiet/deep sleep at night. did you look at the nanda defining characteristics (symptoms) the baby would need to have in order to have disorganized infant behavior?
think about what you know about the assessment findings of a normal newborn compared to an adult. what's different? for one thing newborns can't regulate their body temperature which is why we don't leave them exposed to the room atmosphere for very long with just a diaper covering them. that's ineffective thermoregulation r/t immature compensation for changes in environmental temperature.
some newborns just have a few difficulties with excessive secretions in the respiratory track (the big hint here is that the nurses will keep a bulb syringe nearby the baby) so ineffective airway clearance
can be used. they also have a stump of an umbilical cord hanging off their future belly button. do you? are they treating this cord stump? if it's inflamed or there are umbilical cord problems there is risk for infection, so you can use risk for infection r/t break in skin integrity at umbilical cord site

if the baby has been circumscribed that is another reason for a risk of infection. is this baby breastfeeding? if so, use effective breastfeeding.
and, some babies just don't start feeding well at first by breast or bottle--it happens. these kids are imbalanced nutrition: less than body requirements r/t poor infant feeding behaviors
