This class is for both expectant and adoptive parents who want to learn and practice the most up-to-date newborn care for their babies. Focus is on birth through the first six weeks of life. Topics include feeding, bathing, diapering, crying, umbilical cord care, circumcision care and safe sleep. Parents learn to recognize symptoms of illness and when to call the pediatrician. If available, you can have these items on hand to practice during class time: doll or stuffed animal, diaper, onesie, and a receiving blanket.
