ABOUT THIS COURSE

A video tutorial course with expert advice on how to care for a newborn for new and soon-to-be parents


After 9 months of waiting for your bundle of joy to arrive, it’s time to dive head first into one of life’s greatest journeys - the wonderful world of parenting. Whether you’re new to parenting, a soon-to-be parent, or have been parenting for years, this course will provide you with a wealth of knowledge and expert advice on how to care for your newborn baby.
 
This course is brought to you by lactation and baby care experts, Corky Harvey, MS, RN, IBCLC and Wendy Haldeman MN, RN, IBCLC, who together have 70 years of experience with babies.
 
As a new parent, no matter how much you prepare, nothing can prepare you for what’s to come when you leave the hospital and step out into the world with a brand-new baby. And while babies don’t come with step-by-step guides, we’ve got you covered!
 
You’re going to probably get a lot of unsolicited advice and information from family members, friends and even strangers on how to care for your newborn. And while some of the information might be useful, it can also get very confusing and stressful hearing other people’s opinions on how to raise your child. This is where this course comes in handy. It’s the ultimate baby care manual that you can review from the comfort of your own home and make decisions based on what you’ve learned, not what you’ve been told from others.
 
This hands-on parenting manual features video lessons that will give you the tools you need and help prepare you for the challenges of parenting. You’ll learn everything you need to know on how to keep your newborn clean, cozy and happy. From bathing and diapering to soothing and calming to breastfeeding and development this course is your one-stop-shop to all things newborns. Think of this course as your parenting bible, a resource to help your newborn thrive!
