A new video created by two Montreal-based
journalists might relieve some of the anxiety new parents
experience in caring for their newborns.

Company president and co-creator Lianne Castelino said
the video was sparked by her own frustration.

“While taking prenatal classes for my first baby, I
was struck by how poorly produced and outdated the instructional
videos were,” Castelino said. “I felt compelled to try
to come up with a step-by-step visual guide that would
educate and empower parents.”

So she and partner Andrea Howick enlisted the expertise
of Dr. Denis Leduc, vice-president of the Canadian Pediatric
Society, and other medical and child-care experts to
address areas of concern such as understanding what
your baby’s movements and language mean, breast-feeding
and bottle-feeding, plus tips for bathing newborns and
advice on postpartum care for moms.

The video contains more than 70 minutes of demonstrations
and interviews and 120 topics on how to care for a baby
from birth to six months.
