Need ideas to teach new moms of 10-14 day old baby -public health.

I have to do a knowledge advancement project for new moms. It doesn't have to be a long presentation, but have no ideas. There are already boards on car seat safety, nutrition and breastfeeding. I was thinking of doing baby blues vs postpartum, but then realized baby blues would be just about over by 10-14 day mark. Any thoughts?

NORMAL postpartum depression would be. How about all the ones who aren't? Something to help them recognize it and get appropriate care?

It's flu and RSV season- maybe something about infection control in the newborn population?

How about SIDS or teaching them "back to sleep."

Co-sleeping, reasons why pr why not, and safe ways to go about it?

I still think you could do baby blues vs depression. I don't think it "has" to be over within 2 weeks. I've noticed in some cases it doesn't even start until a little later, after the initial high/adrenalin rush wears off and fatigue starts really settling in.

Or postpartum anxiety? That isn't tallied about much, but it's getting a little more press lately.

Thanks for all your ideas. I am going to go with 'coping' and incorporate baby blues vs. postpartum depression and signs of it.

Be sure to look in your NANDA-I for all the nursing diagnoses related to coping, family role, and such. They will give you a good foundation for your teaching plan and your faculty will kiss your feet.
