About

When you bring your newborn home it's important to know how to properly care for them. Providing a safe environment to ensure they are healthy and safe at home is an important part of caring for your new baby. Children under 3 are especially vulnerable to getting sick. Their immune systems aren't fully developed yet, so they have a harder time fighting off illness.

There is a lot that goes into keeping your baby safe and this course outlines the important information you need to know about keeping your baby happy and healthy. Taught 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.
