SIDS: Back to Sleep




Babies don’t come with instructions, but the visiting nurses of Otsego County Public Health Nursing can help with a Mother/Baby Home Visit.

The visiting nurse can:

* Assess the well-being of both you and    

  your baby.

* Provide advice on ways to care for, feed

     and bathe your baby.

* If you are breastfeeding, provide reliable

     lactation counseling and support.

* Offer advice to help siblings and pets         

     adjust to a new baby in the home.

* Provide help in learning how to

   childproof your home.

* Provide emotional support for you and

     your family.


A nurse will contact you when you are home or you can call us at: 607-547-4230 with any questions or to set up a time for your visit.
