Empowered Parenting--an afternoon workshop for expectant parents

Newborns don’t come with instruction manuals!  This workshop for expectant parents will provide you with the hands-on practice and information you need to take care of your newborn baby with confidence. Workshops are held on Sunday afternoons at Babyology.  The cost of the workshop is $40 per couple. The fee includes a packet of information and access to the lending library.

During our time together we'll discuss parenting styles, communicating with your partner, infant care, diapering (cloth or disposable), feeding, slings and wraps, and sleep: how to get it and how to survive without it, and more!  This is an interactive, dynamic class--you'll leave feeling empowered and ready to meet your baby.

Topics include:

Newborn care, from bathing to diapering
Feeding baby, common concerns and questions
Newborn/infant behavior:  what to expect
Soothing your baby using techniques from The Happiest Baby on the Block
Babywearing—slings and wraps
Sleeping:  how to get it and how to survive without it
Carseat installation—the basics
How to find a care provider for your baby
