New videos for small baby care

We are delighted to announce the release of the first 3 videos in our new series on care of small babies: Cup Feeding, Inserting a Nasogastric Tube, and Feeding with a Nasogastric Tube. With prematurity now the leading cause of death for children under five, it’s our hope that these videos—designed to teach health workers and mothers in low-resource settings—will help demystify and improve the quality of care of small and preterm babies.

The Small Baby Series, which consists of 25+ short videos, was filmed in Bangladesh, Uganda, and Nepal. Working in partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, we developed the content to complement their Essential Care for Small Babies curriculum (2015) which is based on the latest WHO guidelines. The videos have been reviewed by a number of newborn experts, including those from AAP and WHO, to ensure they demonstrate international best practices. We are grateful to the Laerdal Foundation for supporting this project.
