Your sweet baby is soon here! Learn how to care for your baby and all the ins and outs of first time parenting and postpartum care.
We've created this unique class in Orange County, after having supported hundreds of parents and realizing the importance of preparing parents-to-be for their new baby and their new lives as first time parents. Parents who prepare for new parenting are much more equipped to care for their babies, to understand how their baby communicate, their biological needs, support the new mother to decrease her chances of postpartum blues and depression and to navigate the journey of new parenthood with ease and confidence. With the Newborn and First Time Parenting Class, you'll learn what many parents wished they had known when they had their first baby.
We recommend this class to all new parents-to-be! You'll learn:
- diapering a baby
- bathing a baby
- umbilical cord care
- newborn appearance
- breastfeeding your baby
- important ways your baby communicates with you
- how to know ensure the best sleep possible for your baby
- choosing and using a baby carrier that is appropriate for your baby (not all of them are!)
- biological reasons why babies do what they do
- getting out and about with baby
- parenting resources in Orange County
- maintaining a strong relationship with your partner
