Newborn 101

 

We all have parenting instincts that kick in after our babies are born, but informing those instincts with evidence-based information and expert advice through newborn classes makes raising babies with confidence so much easier. 

 

Our Newborn 101 class helps you learn about caring for your baby after birth. Topics include bringing baby home, infant sleep patterns and expectations, how to know what your baby wants by reading their cues, feeding choices, diapering, bathing, soothing your baby, illness, and more!
