As you begin your journey into parenthood, you may have many questions. We are here to help!
Baby Basics Saturday is for families who are expecting a baby or have a baby up to 8 weeks old. Team taught by an experienced pediatric nurse and a Board Certified Lactation Consultant, Baby Basics integrates our Baby 101 and Breastfeeding 101 class, covering all aspects of caring for a new baby in a relaxed, comfortable environment. Through engaging videos and hands on activities you’ll learn what to expect the first week, feeding (all methods), stooling, burping, sleeping, crying, diapering, safety and, last but not least, taking care of yourself. Small class size allows plenty of time for individual questions. Great for all expectant families, we encourage you to bring any support person you’d like. Grandparents, dads, moms, etc. are all welcome. FREE and open to all families.
If you are considering KP as your pediatric home, we also strongly recommend the Office Tour and Meet & Greet. This tour covers common practical concerns such as medical insurance, what to expect at the first visit, office policies, and more. You’ll also meet one of our pediatricians who can answer health related questions. It’s a great companion to all the baby care skills you’ll learn in the Baby Basics Class!
(Please note: Baby Basics is not the same as the Breastfeeding Moms Group. This is a one time class for the expecting family and Dads are welcomed at the class. The Moms Group is a drop in support group for both pregnant and nursing moms to get hands on help and ask individual questions and is only open to moms and babies. If you’re expecting, you may want to attend Baby Basics and begin attending the Moms Group.)
