Babies don’t come with instructions… Learn how to have the happiest baby on your block!
Based on Dr. Harvey Karp’s breakthrough ideas, the parent educators at Children’s Hospital’s Parenting Center will teach pregnant couples, new parents and caregivers calming techniques proven to quickly calm crying and boost infant sleep.
Come learn how to turn on a baby’s “calming reflex” using five simple steps: the “5 S’s” - swaddle, sway, side/stomach holding and suck. The class is appropriate for expecting parents as well as those with babies under 3 months.
This class is FREE, but registration is required.
