Newborn Care & Bottle Feeding

Newborn Care & Bottle Feeding

with Alicia Suarez

Scroll down for upcoming dates!

Our 90 minute Newborn Care class helps expecting families become familiar with the basics of infant care and feeding in the early days and weeks after birth. Take this class before you have the baby. While this class will touch on bottle feeding techniques and tips (pumped breastmilk, donor breast milk or formula), if you are planning to breastfeed/chestfeed please *also* sign up for a lactation class.

 

Topics covered will include:

  • Understanding normal infant behavior, communication, appearance and sleep patterns
  • Understanding common newborn procedures in the hospital
  • Understanding the basics of soothing, diapering, umbilical cord care, bathing, and assessment of your baby
  • Newborn warning signs and when to call the pediatrician
  • Bottle Feeding best practices, tips and techniques, burping, bottle cleaning, etc. and how to know if the baby is getting enough

Leave feeling empowered and confident in your ability to take care of your precious newborn baby!
