New Parent Planner

Babies don't come with instruction manuals. But this is the next best thing!

Our team of pediatric experts has developed a user-friendly planner that is great for new parents. The New Parent Planner provides important information about caring for a new baby – from how to make sure your baby receives the best medical care possible to dosage charts and safety tips. The New Parent Planner also helps parents organize important paperwork related mom and baby's care.

If you or anyone you know is expecting a new bundle of joy, click here to request your FREE New Parent Planner from Arkansas Children's Hospital.
