Child health and development 

The magazine Mieux Agir au Quotidien aims to inform families about the development of children aged 0 to 2 born prematurely or sick at birth. The advice and information it contains can be put into practice when the child is born, at the neonatal care unit, and then when they return home. 

With Mieux Agir au Quotidien, you will get to know and understand your child’s behavior better. The proposed activities aim to positively stimulate its development. 

This site brings together five major modules which are based on scientific data. It offers practical advice adapted to the realities of premature babies or those who have spent time in neonatal intensive care.
