Materials and forms to support implementation
During each visit, parents rated their infant’s level of fussiness on a Likert-type scale, and nurses administered a portion of the Neonatal Behavioral Assessment Scale.
During the first home visit, nurses assessed the family’s general medical history and the infant’s irritability, including predisposing factors or triggers to crying, sleeping and feeding patterns, description of the age at onset, and daily patterns of fussiness. In subsequent visits, parents described in detail the events of the past week, the coping strategies they utilized, and their successes. Materials developed for the REST Routine included infant behavior assessments and demonstrations, parent education materials on colic, a video entitled "Fussy Babies and Frantic Families" and an accompanying parent workbook with observation guides and worksheets, pattern recognition guides, individualized daily schedules, and "5 Fuss Fixer" magnets.
