Your baby is dependent upon you for love, affection, care, feeding and protection. Before the baby is born you should start learning how to care for your baby. Your doctor, the baby’s doctor, the local library or bookstore are places to start.
Caring for Your Newborn, a prenatal class offered by The Family Birth Place, can also help you and the baby’s father learn how to care for the baby. The basics of baby care including bathing, feeding, care of the cord and common newborn problems are some of the topics included in this class, led by Registered Nurses.
