Sound Health #11 – Navigating concerns about newborn weight loss – Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital

During the first days of life, almost all babies experience some initial weight loss. Most newborns are able to tolerate this initial period of weight loss. However, some do develop complications such as dehydration and jaundice, which are the two most common causes of newborn hospital readmission. In this edition of Sound Health, Dr. Ian Paul, a pediatrician at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital, explains how doctors chart growth in the first days, weeks and months of a baby’s life. We also discuss tools they use to do this – including Newt, a new tool developed at Penn State Hershey.

In this edition of Sound Research, Dr. Sekhar talks about the prevalence of the problem - and how it can be prevented.
