Learning how to care for a newborn can be a little bit overwhelming at first. You are a brand new parent, and there is a lot to learn, but it can also be a fun and exciting process.

This newborn care class is a 2.5 hour stand-alone class that will help ease your anxieties or confusion about caring for your new little one. It will answer your most pressing questions while building your new parent skills and confidence.

We will cover:

  • What to expect immediately after birth.
  • Holding and swaddling techniques.
  • Feeding your baby; when, how much, burping.
  • Umbilical cord care; bathing, dressing.
  • Diapering.
  • Crying and soothing techniques.
  • Baby wearing.
  • Safe sleep.
