Classes

Here you can find all of the exciting classes that Nourish has to offer…currently and coming soon!

Breastfeeding 101- This hands-on and engaging class is taught to help you and your partner learn the ins and outs of breastfeeding while your baby is still in your tummy.  You will learn the importance of the first 24 hours, tips and tools for positioning and latch, pumping essentials, milk storage, and so much more!  We encourage you to attend this class in the beginning of your third-trimester as this is the optimum time to prepare before your baby arrives.  For dates and locations of upcoming classes, please refer to the Calendar section of the website, or feel free to e-mail us at nourish@nourish-baby.com.  The fee for this class is $50 per mommy (one support person welcome).

Newborn Care- A fantastic and fun class to teach you about what to expect after the arrival of your precious little one…from diapering and sleep habits, to swaddling and snuggling!  We will discuss the first 24 hours, including umbilical cord care, circumcision, bath time, and skin to skin.  The second piece of the course is designed specifically to empower you with newborn comforting techniques and to discuss what is “normal” for a newborn and how to feel confident with your baby.  We will also help you decide what items are essential when you are home with your little one…what new, fancy-dancy gadgets are a must, or what you could do without!   For dates and locations of upcoming classes, please refer to the Calendar section of the website, or feel free to e-mail us at nourish@nourish-baby.com.

Infant Safety and CPR- This class is a must for every parent preparing for their new bundle of joy .  We will explore the world of childproofing and what everyday hazards you may encounter your home.  We will also discuss and practice what to do during emergencies such as infant choking, not breathing due to a fall, or possible drowning.  We encourage mommies, daddies, grandparents, and anyone caring for your child to attend the class.  For dates and locations of upcoming classes, please refer to the Calendar section of the website, or feel free to e-mail us at nourish@nourish-baby.com.

 

Baby Food Basics- So you’ve gotten through the first six months of feeding your infant nothing but liquids and now what?  Solid foods!  This class is designed to teach you the ins & outs of baby food– what to feed first, how to best introduce new foods to your baby, and some easy do-it-yourself baby food making.  Many mommies are intimidated by making their own baby food, and this class will help to de-mystify the fear surrounding cooking for your baby.  Whether you want to make it all yourself, do a 50/50 store to home-cooked ratio, or buy it all pre-prepared, this class will give you tips and advice on how to make it happen.  This is a fun a lively class — it is food after all — and you will learn a lot along the way!
