Books, Beginnings & Babies

Babies admitted to the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) are often at an increased risk of developmental delays due to their prematurity or their illness. 

To help babies have a better developmental outcome, Cincinnati Children’s is launching a new program to help parents engage and bond with their babies through books. The NICU Bookworm Program at Cincinnati Children’s will provide access to free books to families throughout their hospital stay.


Cincinnati Children’s offers a secure online tool to help you manage your child’s health. MyChart gives you access to your child’s medical record, allowing you to view test results, a list of medications, appointments, follow-up instructions and more. You can also send a message to your healthcare team between visits. Learn More.
