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 beginner’s baby care tips to take care of their baby during the first few months of the baby’s life.
Newborn Characteristics: Understanding you Baby's Unique Features
All babies are different, especially in their suck reflex in the first days after birth. It is important to know what your baby’s normal physical characteristics are. Knowing what is normal with your baby can help you respond to any unusual symptoms that can impact a baby’s sleep pattern.
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.
Infant nutrition: Nourishing Your Baby, Your Way
New parents are already busy enough, however, newborn care for parents also entails understanding what to feed their babies as this is vital to their growth and development.
Part 2 of this class teaches you how to plan for your baby’s nutritional needs, but will go over breastfeeding, formula feeds, solid foods, what foods to avoid, and when to introduce solid foods so parents can make sure their baby is getting the best possible nutrition.
Crying: Understanding Your Baby's Language
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.
