Learning About Baby

Congratulations! You’re having a baby! Although caring for a tiny human may seem overwhelming, our workshops will have you ready in no time. We’ll help you learn how to bond with your baby, care for them physically, and learn about their stages of development.

We offer three sessions of interactive and engaging workshops to teach about caring for a baby from birth to 6 weeks, 6 weeks to 1 year, and 1 to 2 years. The following are just a few of the tips you will learn from our workshops.

After Giving Birth

You may be surprised at how your newborn looks with puffy eyes and wrinkled skin, but don’t worry, babies change rapidly. Once your baby is born, the most important thing you can do is snuggle, cuddle, and have skin-to-skin contact. Although bonding with your baby may not be immediate, holding them is the perfect start.


At this stage, babies sleep roughly 15 or more hours daily and wake every two hours to eat. We’ll show you how to swaddle your baby and the best position to put them in for safe sleeping.


A general rule is 16 to 24 ounces of breast milk or formula daily. Your baby will lose a little weight during this first week but don’t worry, they will soon make up those ounces.

Two to Six Months

So many changes take place during these early months. Your baby will stay awake longer. And you’ll be rewarded with smiles, coos, and lots of squirming as your baby realizes there’s a bigger world out there.


At this stage, babies take 4 to 6 ounces of formula or breast milk every three to four hours daily.

Packing a diaper bag

You may start venturing out more as your baby gets older, so make sure you have all the necessities you’ll need. Pack diapers (we suggest one more than you think you’ll need), wipes, diaper cream, a changing pad, and another set of clothing. It’s hard to be prepared for everything, but once you and your baby are out and about, you’ll figure out what you need.

Seven Months to One Year

Lots of significant “firsts” take place during these months. You will see your baby go from rolling over to even taking their first steps. A first laugh, first tooth, and the first time they eat will be part of the adventure.


Your baby may start sleeping straight through the night, often 9 to 11 hours. They also like a nap or two during the day.


Although your baby is still getting 24 to 30 ounces of formula or breast milk daily, add fruits, veggies, dairy, and protein when possible.
