Free lecture: Beyond Baby Einstein and No More Tears

New Britain [April 06 2009] - The Hospital of Central Connecticut will hold a free lecture, “Beyond Baby Einstein and No More Tears” Wednesday, May 6, 7-8 p.m. at the New Britain General campus.

Susan M. Ludington, Ph.D., C.N.M., FAAN, will discuss how parents can enhance their baby’s mental and motor skills, and reduce or prevent crying. Ludington is a nurse midwife and the Carl W. and Margaret Davis Walter Professor of Pediatric Nursing at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. She is the author of two books, “How to Have a Smarter Baby,” and “Kangaroo Care: The Best You Can Do for Your Preterm Infant.”

Ludington will discuss how parents can foster their baby’s brain maturation by stimulating sight, hearing, touch, smell and other senses. She’ll also discuss evidence of the negative physical effects of crying in newborns and strategies for minimizing or preventing crying altogether.

The “Beyond Baby Einstein and No More Tears” Greenblatt lecture is free to the public. It will be held in Lecture Room 1, with refreshments available at 6:30 p.m. Seats are limited; call (860) 224-5695 for information or to register.
