Leading nursing journal finds mothers and babies benefit from skin-to-skin contact (11/19/2014)

Research during the past 30 years has found many benefits of skin-to-skin contact between mothers and newborns immediately after birth, particularly with aiding breastfeeding. However, in some hospitals, skin-to-skin contact following cesarean birth is not implemented, due to practices around the surgery. A recent quality improvement project demonstrated that women's birth experiences were improved by implementing skin-to-skin contact after cesarean surgery. ...> Full Article


Immune system of newborn babies is stronger than previously thought (10/1/2014)

Contrary to what was previously thought, newborn immune T cells may have the ability to trigger an inflammatory response to bacteria, according to a new study led by King's College London. Although their immune system works very differently to that of adults, babies may still be able to mount a strong immune defense, finds the study published in the journal Nature Medicine. ...> Full Article

Learning the smell of fear: Mothers teach babies their own fears via odor, research finds (7/31/2014)

Babies can learn what to fear in the first days of life just by smelling the odor of their distressed mothers', new research suggests. And not just 'natural' fears: If a mother experienced something before pregnancy that made her fear something specific, her baby will quickly learn to fear it too -- through the odor she gives off when she feels fear. ...> Full Article


By any stretch (6/30/2014)

After the hectic delivery experience, newborns are almost immediately stretched out on an uncomfortable measuring board to assess their length because it serves as an indispensable marker of growth, health, and development. Tel Aviv University researchers are using new software that harnesses computer vision to more accurately measure infant length. The technique is much easier on infants and at least as accurate as conventional measuring methods. ...> Full Article

Should whole-genome sequencing become part of newborn screening? (4/4/2014)

Should whole-genome sequencing be used in the public-health programs that screen newborns for rare conditions? That question is likely to stir debate in coming years in many of the more-than-60 countries that provide newborn screening, as whole-genome sequencing becomes increasingly affordable and reliable. The possibility of making whole-genome sequencing part of routine screening programs for newborns raises ethical, legal and social issues that should be weighed carefully, according to researchers at McGill University. ...> Full Article


Study is first to provide direct evidence that response of unborn children to glucose is associated with mother's insulin sensitivity (4/2/2014)

A study published in Diabetologia, the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes, is the first to provide direct evidence that fetal brain response to a dose of sugar given orally to its mother is associated with the mother's insulin sensitivity. This may indicate that the risk of subsequent obesity and diabetes may be pre-programmed in the womb. ...> Full Article
