Infant Care Workshop

Saturday November 4 1:00-4:00 pm


Soon you will be snuggling your sweet baby, inhaling the almost intoxicating scent of their precious little head while they doze peacefully on your chest. Or should they be in the swing, bouncer, co-sleeper, bassinet, wrap, crib or carrier. With a pacifier, or without? In a swaddle or sleep sack? 


We can help you answer these questions, and more! 


Whether you are a new parent or simply need a refresher, after our Infant Care workshop, you will be up to date on the latest baby gadget trends, professional recommendations and current safety measures. The cost for this workshop is $110.
