2024/7 Monitoring Ends

After a baby's birth, a woman may never feel more fragile — and yet so worried about another person's life. In a hospital, it's a relief to know that there is someone looking out for the baby's health and the mom's. In fact, nurses are around to monitor the situation

24 hours a day, and if the baby is in the NICU, he's strapped to things that beep if there is a problem.

At home, though, that 24/7 monitoring ends. There isn't a medical professional nearby, so it's up to mom and dad, and that can be intimidating. That can make leaving the hospital a scary proposition, but there are some over-the-counter products these days moms can buy to give them some piece of mind.
