Caring for your baby

This class will help new parents gain skills for caring for their newborn. It is taught by a Scripps pediatrician and perinatal educator who will discuss important topics such as newborn behavior, characteristics, development, hospital expectations and keeping baby well. Discussion will include diapering, swaddling, holding, bathing, home and car seat safety and comforting your newborn.

It is recommended that you attend this prenatal class any time after approximately 32 weeks in your pregnancy. Expectant partners are encouraged to attend together.

During the MS Teams meeting, we recommend that you have a doll or teddy bear, a diaper, and a swaddling blanket available for practicing during class.
