This one-time class will teach you to parent your baby in the first days in the hospital and the first weeks at home. Topics include immediate care of the baby after birth, what new babies look like and do, and how you can be an expert with feeding, diapering, bathing, swaddling, and taking your baby's temperature. You will learn about methods to calm your baby and leave the class with increased confidence and survival skills for caring for your new baby in the first weeks. In addition to the Baby Care Basics, Texas Health Resources offers two related classes. Baby Safety/CPR and Car Seats and Baby's First Year are additional classes that cover the weeks and months after your baby's arrival. Plan to attend all three for a complete look at caring for your newborn. The classes will meet in the Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southwest Fort Worth Community Education Center located at 6270 John Ryan Drive Fort Worth, TX 76132.
