  • When your child should have "shots" (immunizations)
  • How to tell if your baby is sick and when to call the doctor 
  • About hearing and the importance of having your baby’s hearing checked soon after birth
  • About the signs of teething, how to soothe teething pain and how to prevent early tooth decay
