Baby Care Class

Are you excited and a little nervous about caring for your newborn baby? Babies don’t come with instructions—so join us for a fun and interactive class that will give you a little “hands-on” experience and lots of information. You’ll learn about:

  • Physical characteristics of a newborn baby
  • Hospital care of your baby including hearing screening and common blood tests
  • Circumcision
  • Newborn jaundice
  • Immunizations
  • Choosing a baby doctor and routine newborn office visits
  • Baby care skills like bathing, changing diapers, swaddling, cutting fingernails, using a bulb syringe, temperature taking, etc.
  • Soothing a crying baby/colic
  • How to play with your baby to stimulate intellectual development
  • Choosing child care
  • Keeping baby safe
  • Signs your baby is ill and what to do
  • Adjusting to parenthood
  • And more

Use of car seats, breast-feeding and CPR cannot adequately be addressed in this class—please note our class offerings on these topics.
