Back to WORK and Breastfeeding

Learn how to apply these 3 Keys to Success:

Determination, Planning and Support

Many new mothers find that they have to return to work after the birth of their baby. More and more mothers are ~ and want to continue breastfeeding but do not know if they will be able to accomplish this when they return to work.

Learn how to navigate this road and also learn about the new lactation laws to make working and breastfeeding work for you.

Learn how to make bottle feeding work for your breastfed baby so s/he will continue breastfeeding.

In this 2-2.5 hour class, moms going back work will learn how to navigate this road successfully.

HAPPIEST BABY

on the block

Magic? A miracle? No, it's a reflex!


Learn an extraordinary approach to quickly calm your baby - that is based on four principles developed by Dr. Harvey Karp.

This class is vitally important for anyone wanting to understand babies, and be skillful at comforting them. One major principle you will learn is the calming reflex – the virtual off switch for a baby’s crying.

Parents will also learn about the important "fourth trimester" and step-by-step techniques (5 S's) on how to help babies sleep longer and how to soothe even the fussiest infant in minutes… or less!

This 2-2.5 hour class is based on extensive research by Dr, H, Karp, on infant behavior allowing you to know your infant better and to know what is normal or not normal infant behavior.

I use discussion, video, handouts, and hands on role playing so you will feel more confident in your ability to know and calm your newborn.

This class can be taken before or after your baby is born.

Class Fee: $30*/couple


* If you host any class for 1-2 more couples/mothers, your fee is reduced to $20 payable by check or cash, to the instructor - Jeanne Wade at class.

Classes can be held on weekdays/evenings or weekends.

You will also receive a folder filled with helpful information to follow during and after class.
