    Just finished my OB rotation. Healthy newborns won't have many diagnoses, mostly risk fors. Here are some we have used:

    • Readiness for enhanced parenting r/t bonding and attachment amb parents attentiveness and cuddling of child
    • Readiness for enhanced nutrition r/t infant's viability outside mother's womb amb baby's rooting, suckling and swallowing sounds
    • Effective breastfeeding r/t infant's successful latching on and positioning amb baby's swallowing sounds and wet and dirty diapers every three hours
    • Risk for infection r/t inadequate acquired immunity
    • Risk for hyperthermia r/t depleted sources of subcutaneous fat
    • Risk for suffocation r/t reduced motor abilities
    • Risk for aspiration r/t depressed cough/gag reflex
    • Risk for sudden infant death syndrome r/t presence of risk factors such as sleeping in prone position, loose articles in sleep environment and infant overheating
    • Risk for delayed development r/t affect of racial/ethnic differences between mother of Hispanic origin and American father
    • Risk for impaired parent/infant/child attachment r/t anxiety associated with new father's role


    Good luck. Happy assessing and careplanning!

    My old OB text had pull-out careplans in it. I am surprised yours was not more helpful. Anyhow good luck!
