Ask about bottle warming
Ask the parents about their methods for bottle warming and about any feeding schedules they want you to follow.

Ask the parents if the infant has any special needs or health concerns you should be aware of.
Determine if the infant has a set schedule for naps, feeding times, play time, or medications that you need to follow.
Ask about sleep habits
Ask the parents if their baby has any special routine for sleep time, such as rocking, walking around, singing, or shushing.
Follow any routine the infant is accustomed to: play with and hold them, change their diaper, talk to the baby, and enjoy spending time with such a precious little person.
