Day One Series Videos

Day One and Day Two Videos

Based on the popular Day One books (From Day One Baby Knows and Day Two: A Toddler's World and You) New Mexico Project LAUNCH created six videos to help parents understand the social and emotional development of infants and toddlers.

The first three videos address three topics from the Day One book. In these videos, parents will discover how to tune into baby, learn to ask for help, and take care of themselves as they embark on the magnificent journey as parents.

The second set of three videos discusses topics from Day Two. Toddlers have an uncontrollable desire to find out about themselves and their world. In these videos child-behavior experts encourage parents to recognize, name, and validate children's emotions and talk with them to help them learn how to deal with how they are feeling. Emotional literacy is taught through these videos: Toddlers and the World of No! Toddlers and Screen Time, and Falling Apart: Toddlers & Tantrums.

The videos were produced by the New Mexico Department of Health, with the expertise of the Santa Fe Community College Film Department and NM Film Resource. They are posted on the Department of Health website:  and


The videos are also available on DVD. The DVDs are designed to be used in clinic/physician waiting rooms and by home visitors or other professionals as they work directly with new parents.
