Preparing for Baby

When you first begin to prepare for your infant’s arrival, you may find yourself lost in a sea of information overload about all the things you need to get for your baby. It’s important to remember that amidst all the hype around the newest baby gadgets, that all your baby really needs is to be fed, changed, loved, and in a safe environment.

Mental preparation is just as important as what you do to physically prepare for the arrival of your infant. Preparing mentally will help you feel confident in your knowledge as you grow in your abilities to care for your baby. Consider taking one of our newborn care classes to insure you have all the basics down.
