  26. 26. Normal development ofhearing After the amniotic fluid drains from the middle ear several days after birth, the infant’s hearing becomes acute. Hearing is one of the better-developed senses in the infant; the fetus can hear in utero and responds to loud sounds. The ability to listen and discriminate among sounds is an important task during infancy. The closer the infant is to the sound, the easier the sound can be discriminated.
  27. 27. Touch  The newborn is responsive to touch on all parts of the body. The face (especially the mouth), hands, and soles of the feet seem to be most sensitive.
  28. 28. Taste  The newborn can distinguish between tastes, and various types of solution elicit different facial expressions.
  29. 29. Smell  Newborns react to strong odors such as alcohol or vinegar by turning their heads away. Breastfed infants are able to smell breast milk and can differentiate their mother from other lactating women by the smell.

Immunizations If the infant is born to an infected mother or to a mother who is a chronic carrier, hepatitis vaccine and hepatitis B immune globulin (HBIG) should be given within 12 hours of birth. For infants born to a hepatitis B-negative woman, the first dose of the vaccine may be given at birth or at 1 or 2 months of age (depending on province of residence).
  31. 31. Family Assessment Process Do the parents and infant have eye to eye contact frequently? How much body contact is present? Does vocalization by the parents evoke a smile from the infant? How much does the infant cry? What is the mother’s reaction? What is the father’s reaction? How does the mother describe the infant’s feeding and sleeping patterns? Does the mother describe the infant’s tasks positively or negatively?
  32. 32. Nursing Interventions Improve family interactions and relationships. Improve family’s ability to cope with stress from the new addition to their family. Praise positive parenting behaviors. Provide adequate nutrition to malnourished infant. Allow parents to vent their feelings about the infant. Refer to appropriate agency for financial, social, or other family needs.
