Being a new parent is awesome and amazing and…terrifying. There is so much to learn, so much to prepare for. And, sometimes, it can be hard to think beyond the birth to caring for the actual BABY. This is not a time you want to completely wing it. The good news? You don’t have to. You can’t know it all before you have a little one but you can learn a lot of critical information that will help you feel confident, educated and ready for this new adventure.
Many new parents take local classes to learn basic baby care skills but they’re often generic and LONG, often making them hard to absorb for parents-to-be. They’re also irrelevant for many parents, designed to meet the needs of all parents without addressing the specific concerns of any one parent. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone just gave you all of the information you needed to know in bite-size chunks you could come back to over and over again, once your baby was actually around, in the comfort of your own home? Someone who has the professional expertise you need and the personal experience to back it up? Someone who has their finger on the pulse, who knows what new parents really need and want to know?
