Baby Care Basics

This comprehensive three part program will provide participants with a better understanding of their newborn baby. Our goal is to help the new parent feel more comfortable and increase their confidence in handling their baby.

Part 1:
This class emphasizes baby care basics, such as bathing, diapering, dressing an infant, burping and more. Parents review a list of questions that can be asked during the prenatal interview with their baby’s respective doctor. As a group, we will discuss issues such as thumb sucking, use of pacifiers, attachment toys, and current trends that embrace these topics. The course also covers information on the prevention of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and the safe sleep campaign.

Part 2:
This program will educate new parents on topics of childhood illness and temperature taking. We will discuss illness common to the first few years of the infant’s life, along with measures parents can take to help their babies feel more comfortable. Information is given to parents on the immunization program that is available to their children. We discuss nutrition, and well baby check-ups.

Part 3:
Parents learn how to make their home and childcare environment safer for their baby. Students and family members will learn the techniques of infant CPR and prevention of obstructed airway. Participants will have ample time to practice these skills, using one manikin per student.

Upon completion, students are issued a Baby Care Basics Certificate, as well as a Family and Friends CPR certificate
