Part 1: Basic Infant Care

There are a lot of things that must be done in the first few months of a baby’s life. You might be thinking that these are just basic care classes but there is a lot of information that is helpful for parents and babies.

Part 1 of our 4 part course is designed in such a way that new parents can learn how to take care of their baby during the first few months of the baby’s life.

Part 2: Characteristics of a newborn

All babies are different, especially in the first days after birth. It is important to know what your baby’s normal physical characteristics are. Knowing what your baby’s normal physical characteristics are can help you respond to any unusual symptoms.

Part 2 of this class teaches you about some of the most common normal physical characteristics and newborn behavior that you will notice in the first few weeks and how to identify what is not normal.

Part 3: Infant nutrition

New parents are already busy enough, but know that understanding what to feed their babies is extremely important.

Part 2 of this class teaches you how to plan for your baby’s nutritional needs, but will go over what foods to avoid, and when to introduce other types of foods so parents can make sure their baby is getting the best possible nutrition.

Part 4: Crying

Crying is a newborn’s main way of telling you what they need. But when you’re a new parent, you may not know what is going on with your baby when they cry.

Part 3 of this class helps you learn to understand and respond if your baby is crying because they need something, are feeling unwell, or if they just want to be held.

Part 4: Bathing

Newborns come into the world totally naked and their skin is soft and smooth.

Part 4 of this class will cover what you should and shouldn’t do when it comes to bathing your baby in your the first year.

Part 5: Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

The unpredictability of sudden infant death syndrome is one the biggest cause of anxiety for new parents. We are here to help you understand the possible causes of SIDS, and how you can reduce the risk to your child.

Part 4 of this class provides parents with useful and reliable information on SIDS prevention.
