The Baby Care and Infant CPR Class is offered in two different formats: a one day marathon class on a weekend (from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.) or a two-part series on a weekday evening (two classes from 6 to 9 p.m.).
This class is ideal for expectant, new, or adoptive parents. Learn about baby care basics including cord care, circumcision care, jaundice, diapering and bathing. We also go beyond the basics and include essential information on cloth diapering, ‘green baby’ tips, using your car seat correctly, and techniques to calm a crying baby, including instruction on Dr. Karp's 5 S's. You will also learn infant CPR/choking during this class. Participants receive a newborn care DVD, a take-home infant CPR manikin and instructional DVD, and more.
What to bring to class: Please bring your infant car seat carrier and vehicle manual to class (if taking the two-part series, please bring to class #2). Minimal snacks are provided, so you may wish to bring your own additional snacks. There is also a 45-minute break for lunch on your own (during one-day marathon sessions only).
Cost is $75.00 per couple. If you are unable to afford the cost of this program and are delivering at Swedish Covenant Hospital, please contact our Call Center at (773) 878-6888 for information about payment options.
