Babies are terrifying, right? They cry, they poop, they sleep, they don’t sleep at all, they projectile liquids from bodily orifices. And yet…they are the most remarkable beings! Navigating life with a newborn doesn’t have to be a deer in the headlights situation. In fact, it’s almost a travesty to not utilize the resources and support that are available to new parents in the realm of parenting. No one has all of the answers, but we have access to the tools, and taking a newborn care class is the toolbox.

Benefits of Taking A Newborn Care Class

The saying goes that “babies don’t come with a manual”, and it’s true…to an extent! There are literally hundreds of “baby-how-tos”, “baby basics”, and “baby 101” books that are out in the market to read. BUT…there is not a single book that hones in to how YOUR baby will be outside of the womb. Therefore, taking an in-person newborn care class can be a catalyst for understanding not only general baby antics in a more in-depth way; but also provide a hands-on real-life approach to what one may encounter.  

There are benefits to taking a newborn care class. Imagine being prepared when the baby goes through a leap or growth spurt. Gain confidence when it comes to feedings (no matter the method). Understanding the milestones the the baby may experience at different ages and stages. Tackle sleep with safety and it’s importance in the serenity of the home environment. Overall, the biggest benefit to taking a newborn care class, is that it builds confidence in YOU!
