    for goals, how about:
    • verbalize an increasing sense of competence in correctly responding to the baby's cues for food and diaper changes
    • patient will report that she is not feeling overwhelmed by her baby's needs
    • patient reports that she is using resources or others to help her learn her new role and gain new knowledge of infant care
    for nursing interventions, how about:
    • allow the patient to cry and express her concern freely
    • have the patient identity and discuss her strengths. avoid criticism.
    • assist patient in how to identify the way a baby expresses their need for something
    • make an assessment of patient's ways of coping with frustrating situations
    • help the patient list positive ways to cope with her stress when the baby cries and she feels frustrated
    • encourage patient to come up with creative solutions
    • recommend written resources about newborn care, parenting classes, or a new parent support group
    if you decide to use "develop a plan of care with patient that identifies coping strategies" as a nursing intervention, i would change those words i highlighted in red. it sounds too much like what you are doing which is making a care plan. better to say something like "make a list" or "have patient identify and list".

    Nursing intervention, find something, anything, you can praise her for doing well to begin to increase her self esteem in her new role as a mother, even as small as, see how she looks at you, she seems to recognize your voice.
