Newborn Care for Families September
Time & Location
About the Event
Let’s talk about burping, bathing, bonding and baby care concerns. In this class we will discuss the basics of taking care of your new little bundle of love. A lot of first time parents feel unprepared or overwhelmed with a newborn at home. They have received so much advice they do not know which way they are going. The good news is, this is your baby and you get to make the choice that is right for you and your new family. There is no right or wrong, it is your baby and your journey into parenthood.
Some of the newborn care topics we will cover in this offering will be:
An introduction to infant feeding and your options whether it be breastfeeding, bottle feeding, combo or formula feeding.
Sleep, sleep surfaces, shared sleep spaces and car seat safety.
Providing comfort and hygienic care for your newborn. This will include diapering, swaddling, baby wearing, umbilical cord care and bathing.
Newborn cues and interpreting your baby's needs.
Introduction to parenting philosophies.
Addressing your needs as you all adapt to the new rhythm in your home.
The postpartum recovery period looks different for everyone. Have you considered what recovering from birth might look like? It is appropriate and encouraged to ask for help so you can recover and bond with your baby. Be open to moving through this journey and honoring it. There will be a learning curve and I am here to help before, during and after.
