10 Common Baby Questions Answered

Babies can seem like an impenetrable mystery, especially for first-time parents. They’re totally helpless, they can’t talk or express themselves, and when they cry — as they often do — it can shatter new parents' already-fragile, sleep-deprived nerves. Good thing they’re cute.

Another good thing: Just Ask Children’s is here to help. We recruited three of our finest child health experts — pediatric psychologist Dr. Ayelet Talmi, sleep medicine specialist Dr. Stephen Hawkins and Dr. Maya Bunik, pediatrician and medical director of Children’s Hospital Colorado’s Primary Care Child Health Clinic and breastfeeding expert — to answer parents’ top questions on everything from nursing to poop to getting those little guys to sleep through the night.
