Description

In Caring for Baby, a Registered Nurse will guide expectant parents in basic newborn care. All couples will receive a beautiful 104-page book that includes information on safety, becoming new parents, developmental milestones for the first 3 months and more. The color photographs in the book coordinate with the Power Point presentation in the class.

Each couple will have a newborn sized doll to learn:

  • How to sponge bathe and care for the delicate skin of a newborn
  • Swaddling technique
  • Umbilical Cord Care
  • How to use a bulb syringe
  • How to hold and burp a newborn

The class will cover the following information:

  • Normal newborn appearance, reflexes and senses
  • How to choose and when it is appropriate to call your babies healthcare team for concerns such as illness and fever
  • Sleep Patterns of a newborn
  • Safe Sleep
  • Is my newborn getting enough to eat?
  • A video showing normal newborn procedures
  • And so much more

Knowing what to expect and how to care for your newborn can help ease the anxiety that every new parent feels. This class assists expectant parents with the confidence you need to care for and bond with your new baby.
