Lamaze Part 5: Newborn Care, Calming & Massage

(also available online)

Newborn appearance, characteristics, what they can see and do from birth onward. Then you’ll learn about keeping babies happy during their Fourth Trimester, being able to activate their tiny calming reflexes so that there is less crying, more sleeping and more smiling!

Using doll models learn the basics of baby care including bathing, diapering, umbilical cord and circumcision care, colic holds and how to comfort a crying infant. We discuss common newborn health concerns, signs of illness, how to take a temperature, and when to call the pediatrician.

 

 

 

 

Nighttime parenting info includes safe sleep guidelines, SIDS prevention, swaddling techniques and tips to help your baby sleep.

We close with learning an 8-minute massage routine that makes a nice ‘end of day’ habit – easy enough to teach grandparents and care-givers. It increases baby’s ability to eat and digest food, gain weight and sleep sounder. It also calms the giver of the massage – so it’s a nice daddy duty. Bigger hands are sometimes a nice thing ;-

“ As a first time dad, I thought I knew the basics, until I went to this course. Turns out, being around kids growing up is way different than having one. The classes were super helpful with getting me prepared for not only the birth, but especially for life after, both physically and most importantly, mentally. Diaper changing, swaddling, feeding, interacting, what to expect from a 1, 2, 3 month old, etc. I would highly recommend this course to any dads, first time or veterans!”
