“…Surviving Infancy is an incredible tool for all new parents. It is so important to be prepared and know what to do in any situation. In fact, I firmly believe hospitals, birthing centres, midwifery centres should send all new parents home with this DVD set.”
“Surviving Infancy is an in-depth informational DVD that is a must-have for all parents of young children. The DVD touches on key topics, including: parenting challenges, routine illnesses, safety and emergencies. What I loved most about the DVD is the user friendly features. The user is not subject to watching the whole video from start to finish just to learn more information on how to cope with ear infections. Rather the user can simply navigate to the menu and topic that best suits their needs at the time. Bonus! It's a true time saver. This is definitely a product I will consider picking up for new Moms in the future. It's something every parent should have on hand. Who knows when an emergency situation could arise?!”
“As a new mom, I'm always looking for good parenting resources. I found Surviving Infancy (2 Disc DVD) to be an informative resource that is both accessible and easy to understand…The two doctors were knowledgeable and trustworthy. They stated fact versus opinion and kept the information accessible without being too lengthy or boring. I think the product is very beneficial for parents as it is a convenient and easy resource to have. The menu feature makes selecting the track content simple; you do not need to watch the entire video if you only need a particular section. I would recommend this product as I feel it is useful and important. Even if you are familiar with some topics already, it doesn't hurt to re-familiarize yourself.”

Below is a quote from one of the the group’s parent evaluators:
“As I watched Surviving Infancy, a thorough and enjoyable video that covers 36 topics essential to parenting children through their first few years, I was struck by how relevant the material is. And not just some of it. All of it.
When my daughter was young, my wife and I encountered every concern and situation delved into in this video. I vividly recall the barrage of anxiety-producing occurrences that one little baby girl was able to send our way - inconsolable crying, problems breastfeeding, car and home safety issues, ear infections (oh, the ear infections!), flips, falls, and head bangs when she was a toddler, emergency room visits. The list goes on. And at the time, in the thick of it, it seemed as though it would never end, the hard parts anyway.
The beauty of this video, presented warmly and naturally by two female Emergency Medicine physicians and educators, is not just that it provides practical knowledge essential to increasing your child's safety, but that it also gives you, the parent, some much needed perspective. Knowing what to expect and having confidence in how to react takes a great deal of the anxiety out of parenting. And the good doctors are not wishy-washy. Much of the presentation deals with specifics - do this, don't do that - music to a parent's ears. The video is broken up into 36 practical segments that fly by while providing invaluable information."

Below are comments received from the group’s parent evaluators:
"Parents were effusive in their praise for this 2 DVD set of essential advice and information for new parents. We need to state that even experienced parents, some with as many as four kids, told us that they wished they had the DVD's earlier but even now they found themselves learning new things. The DVD's last just over three hours and cover 36 critical topics for new parents. The hosts are two highly qualified Emergency Medicine physicians and their approach is even, straight forward and always helpful. Topics include safety, illness, emergencies, immunizations and the usual assortment of parenting challenges. The video segments are professionally produced and edited into concise lengths. Parents really appreciated the easy to navigate menus on the DVD so they can quickly jump to any topic. After watching this, parents told us that simple things like diaper rashes, gas, ear infections and common fevers are no longer terrifying or viewed as emergencies. There are clear direct demonstrations of what to do for your child when these things occur."
