The CHEO “Be Sweet to Babies” research team and the University of Ottawa’s School of Nursing have released a NEW video showing parents how they can reduce their infant’s pain during newborn screening and other blood tests. Research shows that breastfeeding, skin-to-skin care, and sucrose reduce pain during these painful procedures. Our goal is to help improve pain management by providing parents with information they need to advocate for their newborns.
