Happy Fall to everyone! We have two great issues for your reading pleasure. First, Issue 5 includes a diverse group of clinically relevant articles to address care needs around neonatal abstinence syndrome, breastfeeding, and neonatal transport. Second, we have a special issue around issues in newborn skin care, guest edited by Carolyn Lund. This special issue includes five articles encompassing diaper dermatitis, product safety, perterm infant skin care, controversies in bathing, and conducting skin care rounds. We hope to see all of you at the conference in October!
