Infants (0-6 Months): Newborn Classes, Workshops, and More

Newborn classes are a great way for new parents and experienced parents alike to learn the latest about newborn development, behavior, and parenting skills they’ll need during these first amazing and pivotal six months. Our classes are fun, interactive, and educational for both parent and child.

Parenting & Infancy

TLC Infancy & Newborn Parenting Classes are unique and unlike all other newborn classes!

 

This enjoyable class includes a Parent Topic relevant to new parents as well as a weekly focus on an area of infant development and/or infant behavior.

 

Families enrolled in this newborn parenting class will receive the TLC Weekly Newsletter with parent-friendly resources in preparation for the Parent Topic & the Infant Development/Behavior Focus. This newsletter also includes ideas for play & activities at home.

 

To promote early literacy, every family enrolled in one of these newborn classes receives an age-appropriate board book to be shared each week in class (and daily at home!).

Mommy & Me | Baby Yoga & Massage

This class provides a relaxed environment to explore yoga postures and self care techniques with your newborn infant. The hour-long class will include exercises for the child and for the adult. 

 

This is a newborn parenting class, too, so we also provide guidance for dealing with and/or preventing common repetitive stress injuries in new parents. 

 

This is a great opportunity to get the benefits of an asana (posture) practice while bonding with your child and having fun with other families!

 

Instructor: Nora Dybdal

Come sing, dance, clap, stomp, shake, wiggle, laugh, and jump with Jeff Jam at The Loved Child after nap time! 

 

Children (0-5 years) with a caregiver will enjoy playing a variety of percussion instruments such as shaker eggs, rhythm sticks, tambourines, and jingle bells. And, as current research in child development has shown, this musical experience will benefit all areas of your child’s development!

 

Instructor: Jeff Jam

Bonding with Baby Yoga

TLC_Promotional_2018-163 (Medium)

This child-centered class gives caregivers the opportunity to bond with babies on the mat from their earliest days. 

 

This is one of our favorite newborn classes since it connects you to your baby through gentle massage and developmentally supportive movements for the babies. Mindfulness, gentle stretching, and relaxation goes a long way for the parents in the class, too!

 

This is one of our most popular newborn parenting classes thanks to the wonderful community that forms. The atmosphere is perfect for socializing babies (and their parents!). This class is for newborns to pre-crawling babies. Once babies start crawling, they often want to visit other babies on their mats, which means it’s time for them to graduate to a toddler class!

Lactation Consultations – Home Visits

A Home Visit consists of a comprehensive health & feeding history and evaluation of both mother and baby. The lactation consultant will then witness a feeding, weigh the baby before and after feeding, and help troubleshoot any problems you are having. 

 

We then use that information to create a personalized feeding plan for you. This will be emailed to you within 24 hours of the visit and a report will be faxed to your baby’s pediatrician as well.  

 

Documentation will also be provided to you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Consults are reimbursed at 100% by most insurance companies.

 

Lactation Consultants:

Katie Brown, RN, MSN, ANP-C, CBC

Kim Byda, RN, MSN, CPNP-PC, IBCLC​

 

Lactation Home Visits – Initial Consult: $285 (60-90 minutes)
