help you get
started.
Move on to
the next
slide!

What care procedure do you think


would make E-I happy if she were
crying?

C-5.01 - Infant care

10

The first thing you do when


Mama drops E-I off at
school with her bottles is?

1.Immediately label and refrigerate


breast or formula bottles of milk.
C-5.01 - Infant care

11

Time for step 2!


What is it? I will give you a
hint. You forgot to put the
milk in the refrigerator.
What do you do?

2. Discard any formula or breast milk that


has not been refrigerated for two hours.
C-5.01 - Infant care

12

Step 3
My sister does not like
her milk cold so..

3. Remove bottle from refrigerator and run


warm water over the bottle to bring to room
temperature.
C-5.01 - Infant care

13

My Aunt Billie knows how important the next steps


are. She loves E-I so it is easy for her to do this.
Have you guessed what the next 2 steps are?

5. Watch for signs of


fullness.

4. Hold baby during


bottle feeding.
When baby gets bigger and
can hold his/her own bottle,
its okay to put baby in an
age-appropriate seating device
and give bottle.

Crying in response to bottle


Turning head away
Closing mouth tightly
Pushing away bottle/breast
Stopping sucking

C-5.01 - Infant care

14

I am going to be really
mad if you dont do this
last step. I do not want
E-I to get sick!
Okay, name it.

7. After one hour,


discard any used
formula left in the
bottle.

C-5.01 - Infant care

15

There is a strange smell


in this school and it is
time for a new
procedure. It is the last
thing you need to do for
E-I. Hint! This procedure
is done on demand, not
on a schedule. Did you
guess?

Diapering
C-5.01 - Infant care

16

I am out of here. My Mama


is going to show you the
rest of the procedure. She
is my expert. See ya!!!!!

C-5.01 - Infant care

This is my beautiful family.


Dada, Mama, E-I and me. Mama
will do the stinky stuff!
Remember she is the expert.
Dada can change diapers, too.

C-5.01 - Infant care

18

Hello, caregivers. What do you


think you should do first and
second?

1. Gather supplies before placing child on


diapering surface

3. Use disposable towelette or moistened paper towel


to clean child, wiping front to back.

moistened paper towel.

6. Slide a clean diaper under the child,


applying diapering products if needed, using
facial or toilet paper, discarding tissue in a
plastic-lined, covered
receptacle.

items in a plastic lined
trashcan.

Diapering - Note

other products unless instructed in
writing by a parent. If ingested,
baby powder can harm the lungs of
an infant.

C-5.01 - Infant care

Check for signs of diaper rash. If needed, and


if you have written parent permission, apply
ointment.
C-5.01 - Infant care

child.
C-5.01 - Infant care

8. Wash childs hands in accordance with Rule .2803.

the childs hands with a disposable towelette or
moistened paper towel, then dry the childes
hands and return the child to a supervised area.

solution and wipe clean; use disposable paper
towels.

and allow to remain on surface two minutes or as
specified by the manufacturer, or air-dry.

C-5.01 - Infant care

27

I have to get out of here because


I know what is coming next! But
what do you have to do after you
change that diaper?
Think really hard!!!!!!

C-5.01 - Infant care

28

Do you have any idea


what the next
procedure could be?
Dada and I like to do
this, too.

1. Schedule naps with parent preferences in mind.


Stagger naptimes to meet the individual needs of
infants under your care.
C-5.01 - Infant care

Remember Aunt Billie held


E-I and rocked her to sleep
in a nice chair like mine. If
E-I is excited and needs to
calm down to get sleepy,
sometimes she reads her a
story or plays soft music
first. So, what are these
next steps?

2. Use music and stories to


calm infants before
naptime.
3. If feeding is needed
before naptime, hold
infants to feed them their
pre-nap bottles.
C-5.01 - Infant care

31

After she falls to sleep


what are you going to do
with her? Should you
leave her on the couch?

3. Put infant
in crib.

C-5.01 - Infant care

For safety
reasons, its
never okay to
prop an infants
bottle or give
it to them
while they are
lying down.
32

4. To reduce risk of
Sudden Infant
Death Syndrome
(SIDS), place infant
on his/her back in a
crib with a firm
mattress, avoiding
use of fluffy
animals, pillows, and
other objects in the
crib.
Only place a child in an alternative sleep position if a physicians
recommendation for a sleep position waiver is on file in the center.
