Infant Care

Learn about the care of your newborn including crying and comforting, feeding, bathing, sleeping, and newborn safety. Infant Care includes an instructor-led class and an online course. In the instructor-led course, our nurse will provide an overview of infant care including post-delivery, newborn behavior and health, how to care for baby and answer your specific questions.  The Injoy online course will be a resource to you for 9 months once you register.
