“When I was pregnant, I wanted to be informed on everything baby-related. I read books, visited websites, downloaded apps and went to classes. I wanted to be prepared and provide the best care for our child. I always like to learn more so I was glad when I received the opportunity to watch Surviving Infancy 2-DVD Set.
Surviving Infancy: A Parent’s Video Guide to Infant and Toddler Safety, Routine Illnesses, Emergencies & More! is presented by two emergency medicine physicians. Dr. Diane Birnbaumer and Dr. Maureen McCollough discuss 36 topics focused on newborns to toddlers with over 3 hours of content. I enjoyed watching the DVDs. They are filled with great information on important topics. My favorite sections of the DVD was the routine illnesses and pediatric emergencies. Anything health related with a child is scary and concerning. After watching it, I feel better and more informed on what to do if something happens. I am glad that they went over choking and CPR since I always can use a refresher on them. The electrical safety topic was a reminder for me. I have outlet covers on everything but I still had one plug that was accessible to my child. I have installed an outlet plug cover to prevent access to the plug now. I was glad we watched the DVDs and would watch them again. Surviving Infancy is a great DVD for anyone who is expecting or are parents..”

“Being a parent for the first time can be a little crazy! Your body is healing, your hormones are off the charts, and on top of everything you are expected to take care of a newborn baby which you've had no prior experience. Ahh!
Surviving Infancy is a video guide to help ease the craziness and keep you from getting overwhelmed!
I received the Surviving Infancy 2 DVD set and really enjoyed watching the segments. I have three kids and would have loved to have had this for my first child. Even now, there are things that I've forgotten or didn't know and have been thankful to been able to watch these clips about certain topics. Just this week my kids have gotten ear infections. My oldest is four and we have never had an ear infection until now, so I really didn't know what to do and enjoyed watching this segment!
Many topics presented on these DVDs are things that I had to figure out along the way, as far as car seat safety, crib safety etc., and would have loved to have had some sort of compilation of topics like Surviving Infancy to help me.”

“Having a baby brings about a lot of questions and there are not many resources our there in video format that I have found for parents. Surviving Infancy is a great resource for helping you find answers to a lot of questions you have as a parent, grandparent or caregiver.
Please remember to always seek advice from your family doctor, but as an added resource, I really enjoyed the Surviving Infancy videos. I also could not believe how thorough the list of topics are that are covered in the video. I have never seen another video resource that covered so many topics.
I personally am old fashion and love having DVD’s, but I viewed the Surviving Infancy videos in streamlined video. I did enjoy the streamlined video option as I found it very convenient to watch the videos when all the TVs and DVD players were tied up in my house. I also liked that I could watch the streamlined video while resting in bed and with earphones on.”

“I’m usually not one for informational DVD’s as I believe they don’t cover the whole topic or explain in layman’s terms. This DVD is totally different, Surviving Infancy, had a LOT of great information. It covered topics such as Crib Safety including SIDS, Car Seat Safety, Fevers, Immunizations, Bath Safety, Routine Illnesses, Toddler Safety, and much much more. A total of 36 topics in a 2 DVD set worth $29.99. I can not even emphasize how much great information is in this DVD, in fact, I believe this would be a great DVD for everyone to watch before their child is born.
I know when I had my first child I was clueless as to what to do on a lot of topics. I looked to the internet for help, my pediatrician, friends and family. I did find that a lot of things I was told wasn’t that great of information, so having a DVD like Surviving Infancy would have been wonderful to have to be a go-to for information regarding infancy and early toddler years.”

“When Sophie and Xander came along, I was much older and a great deal wiser, so of course I wanted to be as informed as possible when it came to everything baby. Plus, with nearly 10 years between my oldest and Sophie, a lot of things had changed. I definitely needed a refresher course, and let's face it: Google is terrifying and can give worried parents a lot of misinformation, if not complete paranoia. (Fun fact: My OBGYN actually banned me from Google during my pregnancy because I was literally driving myself insane with anxiety.)
I wish the Surviving Infancy series was around during this time period. It would have given me so much peace of mind, since it covers just about every question or concern new parents may have. From baby gear to nutrition to illnesses, and everything in between, this series explains it all in plain English.
The best part? While my kids are not infants anymore, I can still benefit. The series covers the toddler years as well! And trust me, the toddler years have been a real doozy in my home. Sophie broke open a toy and swallowed a button battery on Mother's Day of all days and scared me half to death, and Xander got a hair stuck in his sleeper, and it wrapped around his toe, nearly taking it off. These were things I wasn't even aware could happen...Until they did. Thank God my kids are both okay, but I wish I was more aware of things like this!”

“I wish the Surviving Infancy video guide had existed when Carina was a tiny babe. Personally, I much prefer to watch a quick 5 minute video segment created and narrated by medical professionals on let's say, choking and the heimlich maneuver, than read a step-by-step description in a book or try to have someone explain it to me over the phone. Drs. McCollough and Birnbaumer are thorough and engaging and provide a great mix of video clips, hands-on instruction and informative slides in their discussions. The format (36 short topics) is perfect for those of you who (like myself) only have a few minutes at a time to spare ;)”

“Everything I knew just flew out the window once our son was born. I found myself overreacting about anything and everything health related concerning our little Buddy Doo. You see, you may be the best babysitter, aunt/uncle, baby caretaker in the world but once you give birth and that is your child that was just born premature, coughed, or who's hiccups are lasting far longer than they should everything becomes an important question. At least we have a pediatrician that can deal with my constant phone calls and questions. I believe he's a phenomenal pediatrician, so I would rather stay on his good side.”
“This DVD set is here to help you 'survive infancy'. When you are a new mom, you are new at this so you don't always know exactly what to do. Instinct may have kicked in, but you'll find you may even doubt yourself or your parenting skills when something your child does takes you completely off-guard.”

“Preparing for the birth of a new baby, (especially your 1st) can be a daunting experience. As a soon to be 1st time step-grandmother I can attest, having recently had numerous discussions with my daughter-in-law, the expectant 1st time mom to be. Worrying about labor is one thing, worrying about taking care of the baby is another. What new parent wouldn’t be thrilled to receive this video series Surviving Infancy, a certain stress-reliever for 1st time parents?”
