Tips For Examining Infants

■ Approach the older infant gradually, using a toy or object to distract the infant.

■ Do as much of the examination as possible with the infant in the parent's lap.

■ Speak softly to the infant or mimic the infant's sounds to attract attention and to keep the infant occupied.

■ Ask a parent about the infant's strengths to elicit useful developmental and parenting information.

■ If the infant is cranky, make sure he or she is well fed before proceeding with the examination.
