Congratulations on the birth of your baby!

The first year of your baby’s life is an exciting time filled with amazing challenges and amazing rewards. Whether this is your first baby or you have other children, most parents have lots of questions.

If you have questions or need more support, please check out our Healthy Babies, Healthy Children program.

Caring for Kids, a website organized by the Canadian Paediatric Society, is also a great source of information.
