First Baby 2022

 

Congratulations to Beebe’s first baby of 2022! Donovan Chad Wyatt was born to Stephanie and Trip Wyatt at 5:16 a.m. on January 1. He weighed in at 6 pounds and 7 ounces and was 20 inches long. 

Every year, Beebe team members take up a collection to provide a gift basket of Baby-Friendly hospital items to the first baby’s family. This year, Chloe Bartholomew, RN, her family, and members of the Faust family took the lead on compiling the basket. 

Baby-friendly hospitals like Beebe ensure every woman delivering a baby knows the importance of breastfeeding and learns not only the benefits of the practice, but also how to initiate breastfeeding immediately after delivery. Baby-friendly hospitals initiate skin-to-skin contact immediately after delivery or C-section, keeping moms and babies in the same room and supporting moms with breastfeeding through lactation consultants. 

Additionally, Beebe is recognized by the National Safe Sleep Hospital Certification Program as a “Safe Sleep Champion,” for its commitment to best practices and education on infant safe sleep. The National Safe Sleep Hospital Certification Program was created to prevent infant sleep-related deaths due to accidental suffocation.
