Abstract/Description

Within their first 48 hours of life, newborns are exposed to different procedures necessary for their well-being, but potentially distressing to their small bodies that are still trying to adapt to the harsh reality of the world outside of their mother. They experience immunizations, heel lances, possible IVs if there is a need, and circumcision in the case of some males. Studies have found that the administration of oral sucrose can decrease the pain felt in a newborn during these procedures (Heaton, Herd, & Fernando, 2007).
