About this class

During the Infant Care class portion, you will gain a better understanding of your baby's behavior and sleep patterns. You will practice the basics of holding, swaddling, bathing, and diapering a newborn. We will also give ideas on how to soothe a crying baby, ensure safe sleep space, and tools to help with the reality of life with a newborn. In the Breastfeeding portion of the class, couples will learn the importance of skin-to-skin contact, how to achieve a successful latch, establishing and maintaining a mother's milk supply and understanding baby's hunger cues. Tuality is a Baby Friendly hospital and is committed to providing evidence-based information and support for breastfeeding families. Couples will be given print and online resources to enhance their learning. Tuality also offers separate Infant Care Basics and Breastfeeding classes. Please check our schedule for availability.
