Due to the nature of the course content, this class is offered in-person only.
This program covers the specifics of newborn care, including bathing, temperature-taking, newborn reflexes and behavior, common newborn appearances, diapering, swaddling, soothing, feeding techniques and more. Infant doll models are used to allow for a hands-on experience.
This class is offered both virtually with a live instructor and face-to-face. For virtual attendance, it is recommended that you have a baby doll or stuffed animal to allow for hands-on practice of skills.
