Home > Health Library > Ways to Comfort a Baby in the Hospital
Try the following comfort measures if your baby is hospitalized.
This will help your child get well, and it will make you feel better. It will also help you be more comfortable caring for your child when it's time to return home.
Familiar or treasured objects, such as blankets or stuffed animals, can offer comfort to your child.
Place them where your child can easily see them. Talk about what is happening with other family members, or sing favorite songs.
Knowing about your child's habits, typical routines, and general preferences can help with care.
Find out whether you will be responsible for any treatments at home.
